I highly recommend Eat for Health. If anything, it'll give you great, interesting information, and then you can make a decision as to whether this path is for you. It educated me big time, and it changed my thinking to focus on the benefits of eating the good stuff, rather than on the drawbacks of eating the bad stuff. It gives a compelling case as to why it's so important to eat the micro-nutrients in fruits and vegetables (vitamins, minerals and phytochemicals). When thinking about diet, many people think about the things that are bad, that they want to keep out of their diet (calories, processed foods, etc.). This book, instead, makes a compelling case to focus on the good things - they things we should be eating for good health, and why, and it encourage us to focus on those good things and make progress toward eating more of them over time. The focus is on eating more (of the healthy stuff), not less (of the unhealthy stuff), understanding why that's important. I love that approach.
The book also includes truly delicious recipes - they're really a delight to eat, though some take time to prepare, so my secret weapon is spending 1.5-2hr with my wife once a week making smoothies for the whole week (based on some of the recipes in the book). I drink two 24 oz glasses of smoothie every morning. After I started doing that, my body started craving the micro-nutrients in fruits and vegetables at other times of the day. So now I fully enjoy eating fruits and vegetables, and they keep me in good health. I don't worry about avoiding other foods, but it turns out I end up eating mostly fruits and vegetables because that's what my body craves and I've learned to make or find delicious tastes. Thank you Dr. Fuhrman for bringing joy and health into my life.
