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.

Format: Hardcover
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).

Deciding between Eat To Live or The End of Dieting:

In this book, compared with his others, it's a lot easier to read, but it's a bit more "trust the doctor" versus laying out a massive scientific pile of evidence. So if you are a born skeptic, get Eat to Live. If you accept that veggies are good for you, then skip that and just get to "follow the good doctor's advice" of this book.

I also felt Eat To Live is a harsher diet... it's very, very strict, and if followed to the letter, will result in faster weight loss and health benefits. It's just really, really hard. In The End of Dieting, he loosens up a bit, and it may take you 3-4 times longer to get the results, but will be easier going there.

If you have a major medical issue and are facing heart surgery, for example, get Eat To Live and take the tough medicine.

If you just have 20-30 pounds to lose or want to just eat healthier to avoid FUTURE health issues, then go easy on yourself and do The End of Dieting.

About the content:

If you read enough diet/nutrition books, you start to ask youself? What is common knowledge and what is new here? In general, folks, NEW IS BAD.

For lasting health with few side effects, find the "common ground" of all diets that have worked in the past.

For Fuhrman, his diet is based on common sense and what we all know in the back of our minds to be true. We need to eat less meat and cheese, and a lot more veggies (and fruit, just under some reasonable control).

What this book does however, is give you the vast science behind it so you can justify the fact that, let's be honest, steamed asparagus is NEVER going to taste as good as a donut or peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

So I absolutely believe that of all the diet books out there, all of them, this one is the healthiest. It's just not easy.

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...
