    "Useless without a pdf of exhibits"

    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.

    "Can be summed up in 4 words: eat salads or die"
    What would have made Eat to Live better?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "In a perfect world"

    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.

    "Eat to live indeed"

    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.

    Story
    "I am not a cow!"
    What disappointed you about Eat to Live?

    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.


    What could Joel Fuhrman have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    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.


    Which character – as performed by Joel Fuhrman – was your favorite?

    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.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Some disappointment once I realized the diet's impracticality for me.


    Any additional comments?

    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.
