Editorial Reviews


I've studied Dr. McDougall's, Maximum Weight Loss program and I've studied Dr. Fuhrman's. Superficially, they may seem the same, since they both include virtually the same foods. However, fundamentally they are different. If someone was to ask me what the differences are, I would say the following: McDougall's program places starches at the base of the pyramid and vegetables, secondary, whereas Fuhrman place's vegetables, especially greens at the base. Starches are secondary. Further, Fuhrman encourages fruit consumption whereas, McDougall limits fruits. I would guess that Fuhrman's claims that his diet is a prophylaxes and advances health is sound in light of the science that supports it. In addition, if you want to lose weight rapidly, with Fuhrman, you will. With McDougall, your weight loss will be much slower and you'll never be hungry. You won't be hungry with Fuhrman either, but you have to dedicate yourself to eating more vegetables and limited starches. Regarding nutrition and weight loss, I'm deeply interested in separating fact from fiction, and good science from pseudoscience. I have also spent many hours reading other websites and books by M.D.s and it takes awhile to get it Dr. Fuhrman is the only one who in the best scientific tradition is courageous enough to admit when he doesn't know something, as well as expressing doubt when he isn't sure, because he's aware that knowledge is only tentative and facts should be revised when new information becomes available. However, when he is sure which he derives from good science, he tells you. Dr. Fuhrman the only one I trust in the nutrition field because he's so damn sincere, caring, honest and free of hype. --Philip Marmaros

As a physician myself, I am concerned that this misinformation may harm other people by preventing them from reading Dr. Fuhrman's important book - I am especially concerned about our American epidemic of obesity and diet-related diseases like diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Dr. Fuhrman presents the cure in his well-researched book. In his menu plans he gives 7 days of menu plans for those on a vegetarian version of the plan and 7 days on a non-vegetarian plan. Dr. Fuhrman also makes it clear that a diet rich in vegetables does not have to be all raw or exclude animal foods completely; it is flexible. As a physician, I have observed him in action with patients and he can modify recipes and menu plans to accommodate various tastes and food preferences. It is not an all or nothing plan. However, without reading Eat To Live, your future diet-style will be based on misinformation, not science. It takes experience, creativity and knowledge to make the healthiest way to eat taste favorable for many people. Some people will reject the idea of eating for health based on incomplete information and what they want to eat based on short term thinking (those french fries sound good), rather than enjoying truly more delicious foods that are actually healthful too. Just remember taste is learned and takes a few months to adjust and you can also learn to make healthy food taste great. I have observed that most people over time actually like the taste of this diet-style better then their prior one and love the fact they can eat as much as they want. You get to eat lots of food, not be hungry and get great results too. Get the book and see for yourself. I believe every person in America must read this information; it puts all controversy about diet to rest and may save your life. --bretandanna --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Booklist

Americans spend more than $40 billion annually on diets and weight-reducing programs, many of which work temporarily, fail, or may be dangerous. Fuhrman’s nutrient-packed, healthful approach to nutrition combined with quick weight loss can be expressed in this equation, health=nutrients intake/calories intake. The more nutrient-heavy the intake, the less caloric and more healthy it is. Encouraging, engaging personal stories from Fuhrman’s treatment of over more than 10,000 patients demonstrate his supposition that eating ever-larger portions of healthful, high-nutrient foods decreases desire for low-nutrient foods, loosening their addictive hold on people. Pictures work effectively in this newly revised update of a nutrition-weight control classic. Drawings show, for instance, the stomach-filling efficiency of 400 calories of high-nutrition intake versus 400 calories of high-fat and oil consumption, which leaves a nearly empty stomach hungry. With FAQs, glossary, end notes, and an index for user friendliness. Pass the eggplant! --Whitney Scott --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
