About Eat To Live

When Mehmet Oz or any of New York's leading doctors has a patient whose life depends on losing weight, they call on Joel Fuhrman, M.D. In Eat to Live: The Amazing Nutrient-Rich Program, Dr. Fuhrman offers his healthy, effective and scientifically proven plan for shedding radical amounts of weight quickly and keeping it off. Losing weight under Dr. Fuhrman's plan is not about willpower: it is about knowledge.

The key to this revolutionary diet is the idea of nutrient density, as expressed by the simple formula:

Health = Nutrients/Calories

When the ratio of nutrients to calories is high, fat melts away, and health is restored. Losing 20 pounds in two to three weeks is just the beginning.

The more nutrient-dense food you consume, the more you will be satisfied with fewer calories, and the less you will crave fat and high-calorie foods. If you are an adult diabetic, you will likely be insulin-free in no time. If you are on heart medication, your doctor may stop your prescription. If you are planning a June wedding, you will have the dress size you dream of. Dr. Fuhrman's meal plan offers recipes for power foods and delicious meals that deliver the biggest bang for the caloric buck. He promises that you can lose at least thirty pounds in three months without ever going hungry. Moreover, after you try his Six-Week Plan, you will lose your appetite for unhealthy, overprocessed foods that account for Americans having the second-highest incidence of cancer and heart disease in the world.

This is a book that will let you live longer, reduce your need for medications, and improve your health dramatically. It is a book that will change the way you want to eat, but most important of all, if you follow the Eat to Live diet, you will lose weight faster than you ever thought possible.


Dr. Fuhrman's Eat To Live diet-style is simply the healthiest way to eat, and as a result, it is also the most effective way to normalize your weight. No other diet can radically drop your cholesterol as proven in medical studies. No other diet can effectively drop your triglycerides, can get rid of your diabetes and can normalize your blood pressure.

Eat To Live allows you to say no to heart attacks: they simply do not have to occur. When you eat this healthfully, you can expect your indigestion, reflux, allergies, asthma, arthritis and many other chronic problems to be resolved. Your food addictions disappear, and you actually develop a stronger ability to taste the natural flavors in simple foods.

Eat To Live is not merely a weight loss book. This book is also targeted at those desiring to effectively prevent or reverse other chronic illnesses, such as diabetes, joint problems and high blood pressure. Also, this book is for those who just want to be in great health, maintain their youthful vigor, and physical and mental abilities into their later years. It is the real anti-aging way of eating.

Eat To Live is a must read for every health conscious person in America. It will open your eyes to a totally new way of thinking about food that is sensible, simple and scientifically sound. You will never again be confused about what constitutes good nutrition, and if you are overweight, you will be thinner than you ever thought possible. There are other good diets out there, and there are many dangerous diet plans too. Some are more dangerous than others. If you are considering a risky method to lose weight, such as a meat-based diet, so that you can continue your love affair with saturated-fat-rich foods, Eat To Live may not be the diet for you. Eat To Live is a vegetable-based diet. You don't eat only vegetables, but you learn that eating a lot of high nutrient foods is the key to controlling your food cravings and your weight. If you insist that, no matter what, you cannot eat vegetables, this is not the diet for you.

Eat To Live is for those who want to regain their ideal weight in the healthiest manner possible. It was not written to be the best selling book in the country. To do that, it would have to be filled with myths and fraudulent information to make it palatable to the masses. Dr. Fuhrman wrote it for every individual who wants optimal advice on losing weight most effectively, reversing their medical conditions and precluding the possibility of having a heart attack.

  • It is designed to work for those who had trouble losing weight with other plans.
  • It is designed for those who need to lose a lot of weight and who want to lose a significant amount of pounds each month in a very safe manner.
  • It is designed to protect the health of those with serious illnesses.
  • It is designed to save lives.
Not everyone is willing to eat a diet this healthy, but Eat to Live is not just for those with steely determination and super human powers of self-denial. It is for people who enjoy eating a lot of great tasting food that just happens to be very healthy.

We can make the healthiest foods on the planet taste great. As Dr. Fuhrman says, "I am not on a diet; this just happens to be the way I like to eat because I enjoy it and want to enjoy great health, too." The majority of individuals who give Eat to Live a try for a few months say they enjoy eating this way more than their prior eating style. A truly healthful diet can be great tasting too. Taste and health are not mutually exclusive. We encourage you to learn more ... only then can you know if this is right for you.
