The authentic way the author read the material as I listened.
Yes. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in becoming healthy.
The parts where he stated how much our eating affects our health negatively or positively....the choice is ours.
Constantly throughout the book he refers to the recipes or to the eating plans, which are NOT included. There should be a pdf that has those attachments, otherwise you can't try any of these principles. This was a complete waste of my money. I wish there was a way to get a refund.
I just got very tired of his use of extremes. After two hours of listening to this book, I felt like he was starting to beat a dead horseradish. I tried getting through this book but after 4 ½ hours I couldn’t take any more.
For some people, this might be a great diet but it isn’t my cup of tea. The publisher’s summary says “When Mehmet Oz has a patient whose life depends on losing weight”. Maybe this book didn’t work for me because my life doesn't depend on losing weight. When I last saw my doctor he said all of my tests results were great. I normally eat at least 5 servings of fruits/vegetables per day and walk over an hour every day. My sibling and I have lost about 300 lbs together just by increasing our water intake, decreasing portion sizes and increasing activity levels. My family also tends to live into their upper 80s and none of them were ever vegetarians.
I think it is great that this diet has helped some people improve their health and decrease their weight but I don’t think it is for everyone.
this book has real information about food and lots of things that food company prefer not to be announce.
i enjoyed to listening this audio,but i was a little over-welmed which if i decide to eat his method,i will not have fun on eating anymore.
thx and it is worth to listen at least one time.....
It sounds to me like Furman's advice is solid and backed up. I take it in as "if the world were perfect, we'd all be eating this way." It makes sense & it's backed by data. The only draw back is it's too perfect, too strick for most people to follow. SHOULD we do this? YES 100%. Will most? Absolutley not. I do feel that I am better for reading it, already on my second go around. I think it helps me make better choices more often than not and it appears that was the doctor's intention. He is definately ahead of his time but right on the mark.
Learn why a whole food plant based diet is the optimal diet for health and how it can stop and even reverse nearly all the leading causes of sickness and death. Learn how to implement such a diet and what changes and benefits you can expect.
This is one of those books EVERYONE should read.
Outstanding. Highly recommended.

The Death of Dieting
Lots of research data to support his positions on eating healthfully.
Many...Several things that I felt like he was talking to me about my condition.
Absolutely - good information for overall health
There are many nutritional books on the market. This could compare to most.
No, but I will search for others now that I've read this.
Personally, I find the Furman Diet impractical. The thought of losing 30 pounds in 30 days is appealing but why not add just meat to the diet, reduce the vegetable requirement and lose instead 30 pounds in 60 or 90 days! There was no way I could ingest his prescribed amounts of steamed and raw veggies--it simply would not go down. I believe that humans are carnivorous animals by design because we don't graze all day like cattle and we don't regurgitate our food, using multi-track digestion like they do either. So it seems to me our one-track digestive systems are for ingesting moderate amounts of food with meats as our primary protein source, just like other carnivores. My belief is that the Furman Diet would enjoy more long-term followers with a few adjustments.
I have a problem with the diet itself: Too much raw and cooked vegies and too little meat. Otherwise, I personally would find it tolerable and would surely return to my highschool weight at 68.
I purchased the book and watch the video broadcast on PBS but did not purchase the VERY EXPENSIVE DVDs that were being pushed heavily on PBS. Thankfully, I did not do that.
Some disappointment once I realized the diet's impracticality for me.
Americans, I think, are floundering in a sea of information--much of it misinformation--in their desperation to lose the fat. I believe that if Mr. Furman were not so radical in his approach to weight loss, many more could have been helped. Cutting out processed foods, low value grains, and dairy products would go a long way (possibly all the way) toward trimming the fat from Americans without fully restricting meat consumption.
