I thought this book was better than his previous book, Eat to Live. He updated most of the facts and included much more tips. I Definitely recommend reading it.
This is only book 1, book 2 is referenced a great deal in this book, so be aware that you won't be getting his recipes. That said, it's a fantastic program. Dr. Fuhrman is a very inspiring speaker and gives you the knowledge to make his program workable for you.
I have read many health books, and this one really gave me the perspective and knowledge to change. Dr. Fuhrman makes some strong claims, and after having witnessed the results first hand, I feel compelled to share this book with any health-conscious person I meet.
I have lost 30 pounds, without the starvation sensations I have suffered through when trying other approaches to weight loss. I also have 4 other family members, each of whom have lost around 15-20 pounds thanks to this information; one has been able to drastically reduce BP meds. I recommend listening / reading the predecessor to this book, Eat to Live, as well.
I love Dr. Fuhrman's work and have read Eat to live earlier. Eat for Health is a different version of Eat to Live. Both are great!!!! I don't understand though why we're not getting book two of Eat for Health. I've been implementing his suggestions for the past week and my mood has already improved, not to mention the 2 pounds I lost without trying.
I have been listening to this book over and over because it has helped me to"brain wash" my mind into re- programming my brain to think of food in a life changing, health and energy building manner. I have lost 20lbs in the last 6 weeks. I feel great. I am eating healthy foods that are enjoyable, and I feel totally satisfied. I highly endorse this book to anyone who wants to look and feel better while preventing or curing many illnesses that can actually be eliminated by adapting a nutrient dense diet. This book was an answer to my prayers. I am grateful to Dr. Furman and my good friend who recommended this book to me. I believe I will never be the same
This book clearly states the case for Fuhrman's lifestyle plan and answers many questions. Eat To Live and Eat For Health are both essential reads for anyone hoping to avoid diseases caused by the typical American diet. The knowledge imparted by these books gives one the tools to take control of one's health. Thank you Dr. Fuhrman.
Open your mind, not your mouth
Eat to Live is Dr. Fuhrman's earlier book. I prefer Eat for Health because of its' hands on approach. Dr. Fuhrman's explanations are crystal clear. His use of reader's experiences throughout the book made this real.
It's Dr. Fuhrman so it's just the good stuff.
The bit about 'toxic hunger' I found to be all too true
Great book! This is book ONE and I found myself buying the complete set after listening to the first few chapters. In this book, Dr. Fuhrman references recipes from book TWO and I was so impressed with this book, I had to buy the set.
It's easy to understand and it's not gimicky at all. Bottom line - eat what God gave us in the state he gave it to us and you cannot go wrong. Here's to our health!
We love Dr. Fuhrman's audio books. He is very charasmatic and fun to listen to - this book was written after "Eat to Live" and is less intimidating; we cannot find it in print, so we are pretty happy about it being on audio. Dr. Fuhman's audio lecture on Nutritional Excellence is a good starting point. This book is an excellent follow-up and "Eat to Live" last (at least for us). His books are almost like good fiction, I don't want them to end :-)
I was very surprised at some of the info but happy to have the much needed knowledge NOW.. I'm consider myself pretty well informed and to hear new information that really is common sense.. yet surprisingly enlightening.. Just have one Caviat.. Where is book TWO? ;-) It talks about it, but I can not see it anywhere? Someone please.. tell meJ
This book is a great listen for someone who isn't quite sure what is healthy to eat and what is not. This book makes a sound case for low calorie, low-fat and low-carb based diet. The author clearly states there will be repetition of some content explaining that the goal is for the reader (listener) to understand and internalize the concepts of a healthy diet. This way your not just trying a fad diet, but rather making a lifestyle change.
The testimonials and the full disclosure on the toughness of adapting to this diet. Not everyone will easily adjust to this diet due to learned eating habits, aversion to vegetables, and some digestive acclamation to the vegetable content.
The reader is the author. This brings a sincerity and confidence to the material. Also, it's much easier to have this book read and in effect explained to you rather than read the text.
This is a hard diet to fully acclimate to. Don't try this diet if you aren't willing to change your lifestyle. Try Adkins if you just want to lose weight quickly. This book is more about changing your health, and not just your weight.
