Better Than Eat to Live

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 book brought great health to me and my family

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.

This book is life changing.

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

Fantastic Book

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.

Great Lifestyle Plan

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.

Listen for health

If you could sum up Eat for Health in three words, what would they be?

Open your mind, not your mouth

What other book might you compare Eat for Health to and why?

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.

What does the narrator bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

It's Dr. Fuhrman so it's just the good stuff.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The bit about 'toxic hunger' I found to be all too true

Any additional comments?

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!

Read this Before "Eat to Live"

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 :-)

Easy to do

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.

Very Motivational

I purchased this after begining the nutritarian lifestyle outlined in Eat to Live and it has provided additional motivation and inspiration to continue. We cannot all travel to Dr. Fuhrman's clinic, so this is a great way to have him come to us.

I bought the Audible book expecting access to the whole book. I have mislaid my original download links and, if the other books or chapters, with the full recipes, are there - I can't find or access them. There are no recipes in my audible library. Other than that - it was a good read (listen) and helped me continue to "eat to live". Through this diet I have become 12 kilo slimmer over the past 9 months. 8 of those were within 14 weeks of the nutritarian diet. Mainly following the GBOMB. Anagram as a guide. More importantly - I got my brain back. I was suffering such severe memory lost that I was quite scared of needing to have support - yet I had 3 tests for dementia, MRI and CAT scans that showed no signs of dementia At all. Now I am getting back old memories and can remember things daily. I have a bit to go before I can claim a clear brain but at least the fog has lifted.😄Thanks Dr Furhman.

The absolute truth.

Best health book. Real information. Must listen to. If you apply what he is saying it will change your life forever.
