Top customer reviews
I ordered this book off of amazon, because it had been in my wishlist for awhile , and i though i would order it for some more insight on IF. The book is great, easy to understand for the average individual and really touches on the benefits of fasting. After i finished this book i left it on my fathers desk so that one day he would pick it up and read it.
My father never sleeps because of his RA and is often shuffling through the night trying to get comfortable. But one night he finally picked up the book and started to read it. Low and behold he started fasting the next day. he initially did a 36 hour fast and found himself rejuvenated and less dependent on his prednisone. He was on 20mg and now is down to 7mg. We still have not found the cause of his RA however fasting SIGINIFICANTLY has helped him manage his symptoms and has helped him become less reliant on his medicine. I would definitely recommend this book for someone who is uneducated on the benefits of fasting and just beginning to get their feet wet in the wonders of Intermittent Fasting
"While Dr. Fuhrman says that fasting may be beneficial for certain medical conditions such as autoimmune diseases, since he wrote Fasting and Eating for Health in 1995, there have been research advancements in the field of nutritional science pointing to the healing effects of a plant-based, nutrient-rich eating style. After careful review of thousands of nutritional research studies, Dr. Fuhrman teaches that commitment to his nutritarian eating program will provide the same health benefits of fasting. The difference is that fasting provides only short-term results, while commitment to eating nutrient-rich, plant-based foods gives long-term results. Consult your local physician before beginning any fast."
Then why is this book still for sale with no commentary in the foreword or introduction, an update that says, hey, this is old information? It would still be interesting, but then you would know that it's purpose was more to understand Fuhrman's approach in the 90s.
The short of it: the book is interesting, but you're going to get outdated info.
I have bought hundreds of books, during my 66 years, on every diet,health,nutrition,super vitamins and herbs,
how to get bigger, smaller, live longer etc. I am amazed with Dr Fuhrman's research and verifiable results that
confer with everything he say's. Anybody unintelligent enough not to try this method of a correct way to eat and
live, deserves not to live healthy and die at an early age. Sad but true!
This book can be a life changer for anyone. Very highly recommended, as are HIS SUBSEQUENT BOOKS.
