“A medical breakthrough.”
–Dr. Mehmet Oz


The Amazing Nutrient-Rich Program for Fast and Sustained Weight Loss
by Joel Fuhrman, M.D.
Foreword by Mehmet Oz, M.D.

Dr. Joel Fuhrman’s EAT TO LIVE: The Amazing Nutrient-Rich Program for Fast and Sustained Weight Loss (Little, Brown and Company; $9.99; mass market paperback; May 1, 2012) was an immediate hit when it was first published in 2003—and now it is a #1 New York Times bestseller!

After 48 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list, there is good reason people are turning to EAT TO LIVE. Americans are the most obese people in history, and we are becoming ever fatter. Obesity contributes to chronic diseases like heart disease, hypertension, depression, and diabetes, and is a leading factor in the spiraling costs of health care. These problems exist because people find losing weight so difficult—until now.

Dr. Joel Fuhrman’s diet offers a healthy, effective, and scientifically proven Six-Week Plan for shedding a radical amount of weight quickly. The key to the program’s success is knowledge, not willpower.

In short, health=nutrients/calories. Your health is predicted by your nutrient intake divided by your intake of calories.

The more nutrient-dense foods you consume, the more satiated you will feel on fewer calories, curbing the cravings for high-fat, high-calorie foods. The result is obvious: radical weight loss, an average of fifteen pounds the first month and ten pounds each month thereafter. There is no hunger, and you can eat as much food as you desire. This easy-to-follow, nutritionally sound diet can help anyone shed pounds quickly and keep them off.

EAT TO LIVE has been revised to include:

  • An all-new chapter, “Breaking Free of Food Addiction,” that addresses the addictive nature of food and explains the differences between toxic hunger and real hunger
  • Inspiring success stories from people who have used the program to lose shockingly large amounts of weight and recover from life-threatening illnesses, with before and after pictures at the beginning of each chapter
  • Dr. Fuhrman’s nutrient density index
  • New and updated Frequently Asked Questions
  • Up-to-date scientific research and references supporting the principles behind Dr. Fuhrman’s plan
  • New recipes and delicious meal plan ideas, many of which have received the highest rating at Dr. Fuhrman’s member center
  • And much more!

Joel Fuhrman, M.D., is a board-certified family physician who specializes in preventing and reversing disease through nutritional and natural methods. He lives with his wife and four children in Flemington, New Jersey.
