Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Eat as much as you want, whenever you want. Welcome to the end of dieting.

We're fatter, sicker, and hungrier than ever, and the billion-dollar diet industry—with its trendy weight-loss protocols and eat-this-notthat ratios of fat, carbs, and protein—offers only temporary short-term solutions at the expense of our permanent long-term health. As a result, we're trapped in a cycle of food addiction, toxic hunger, and overeating.

In The End of Dieting, Joel Fuhrman, M.D., a board-certified doctor and the New York Times bestselling author of Eat to Live and The End of Diabetes, shows us how to break free from this vicious cycle once and for all. Dr. Fuhrman lays out in full all the dietary and nutritional advice necessary to eat our way to a healthier and happier life. At the center of his revolutionary plan is his trademark health formula: Health = Nutrients/Calories. Foods high in nutrient density, according to Dr. Fuhrman, are more satisfying than foods high in calories. They eliminate our cravings for fat, sweets, and carbs. The more nutrient-dense food we consume, the more our bodies can function as the self-healing machines they're designed to be. Weight drops, diseases reverse course and disappear, and our lives become longer and healthier.

The End of Dieting is the book we have been waiting for—a proven, effective, and sustainable approach to eating that lets us prevent and reverse disease, lose weight, and reclaim our right to excellent health.

I have read Dr. Fuhrman's, Eat To Live, Eat For Health and Super Immunity. This book BY FAR is his best one yet. I am almost done with it. Chapter two is titled diet myths exposed. I loved his take on SAD (standard American diet), Paleo Diet, Mediterranean Diet, Wheat Belly Diet and some low-fat fallacies. That chapter alone is worth the price of the book. But the best chapter by far is where he explains "The Plan" in chapter six. He details this eating plan so anyone can get it. I call Dr. Fuhrman the "salad man."
What makes this book good also is the testimonies of those who regained their health by eating this way. And the recipes in the back are an extra bonus. So if you are looking at any of his books---start with this one first. By far his best.

I've read dozens of nutrition books, and Dr Joel Fuhrman has become far & away my most trusted source. Read ANY of his books! Superimmunity is still my favorite. This one is more focused on weight loss (including psychological aspects) and slightly less specifically about the diseases of affluence that kill most of us, but it is more of the same facts & same message to eat copious quantities of greens & other whole vegetables, ample berries, nuts, seeds, & legumes, little or no animal products (even lowering his limits in this newest book), moderate INTACT whole grains, no sweeteners (caloric nor artificial), little or no processed foods, and zero trans fats. It's not the macronutrients, but the micronutrients!

In this latest book, I particularly liked his criticisms of other diets. He attacks the Atkins/Paleo crowd for too much animal protein and too few nuts, seeds, & beans--just what I felt about Good Calories Bad Calories and The Calorie Myth--although the latter acknowledges Fuhrman and follows his lead in pushing for large amounts of phytonutrient-rich non-starchy vegetables.

In fact, Fuhrman covered every one of my concerns with Jonathan Bailor's popular new (low carb high meat) book The Calorie Myth (which is still well worth reading AFTER Fuhrman). Bailor really pushes soy protein powders but here Fuhrman explains some concerns about protein powders (although not mentioning the hexane used in extraction).

It may take 20+ years for the heightened levels of IGF-1 in Paleo dieters to surface as detectable cancer, but watch out! Fuhrman agrees with the low-carb concepts, but instead of falling into the meat trap, he incorporates low-carbs into a much broader health scenario (with protein from greens & beans).

This is the first hardcover book I've bought by Dr.F, when I read Eat to Live & Super Immunity, they were both on my iPhone. End of Dieting is BY FAR the best book ever written by Dr. Furhman. My single complaint is that I wish he wrote it twice as long. In the first 120 pages, it's a scientific tour de force. He absolutely exposes all of the diets, many of which I've been on, and connects their risks & dangers to experiences which are immediately relatable. I found in this pages diagnosis for incidents that have happened to me in the past, such as an extreme arrhythmia I suffered for 2 days with palpitations when I was heavily on an all-protein/ no carb diet while I was body building; I could have died. I can't believe it; the book has both inspired me and shaken me in my shoes because I feel so fortunate to have found this truth. I can't call it a diet anymore because it's not that. I'm proud to say, possibly for the first time here, I'm a 100% Committed Nutritarian! I've sorta shunned that label, using Vegan in public to get the point across in a single word to a waiter, and it worked like a charm while traveling on business. But inside, I'm much more than that. The new research he incorporates, even since Super Immunity, it simply overwhelming. In the chapter on G-Bombs, there are 76 References! 76! With many often having 2, 3 & 4 studies showing conclusive data so conclusive it's int eh title of the paper often; and most often published since 2010! The data that's coming out to support this is only outshone by the results I've seen.

There was always a voice inside my head that said "One Day"... "One Day" you'll be thin and can eat a piece of cheesecake again... "One Day" you can enjoy free range meat...

I've read Dr. Fuhrman's other books and this is the same diet he has advised for many years, but with more information. For example, he goes into detail about how eating animal protein raises our risk for cancer and other diseases. He does say for meat eaters like me, 1.5 ounces a day shouldn't really hurt anything. What I still cannot grasp in my mind is, we are not eating much more meat than our ancestors, yet our cancer rates have skyrocketed. It makes sense that it is a combination of factors like lack of exercise, increase in unhealthy, refined vegetable oils (that we have used in this country to replace saturated fats as per the "experts") along with refined carbohydrates (we had to fill up on something since we cut out healthy fats!) along with a decrease in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts and seeds. Then of course, we have all of the environmental toxins etc...

We get so much conflicting information these days I don't know what to believe! I do believe the main point here is eat LOTS and LOTS of vegetables, making it the main dish and not the side dish. That's great, but as far as not eating any animal protein, I am just not buying it. Other doctors who say eating animal protein is fine point to other studies. Which studies are we supposed to believe? Read "Grain Brain", written by perhaps the top neurologist in the country and you will understand and be completely convinced that cutting out healthy fats like olive oil and yes... some saturated fats which are necessary for our bodies to function properly is actually detrimental to our health. Yet, Dr. Fuhrman tells us to cut out olive oil, fish and watch our consumption of avocado because it is "fatty". He recommends against saturated fats and deems them unhealthy.
