“Dr. Fuhrman's Eat To Live presents a compelling, scientific, practical approach to weight loss, health and vitality that is a refreshing alternative to the plethora of popular, but largely ineffective diets and weight loss methods. For those who want to make dietary changes that will enable them to enjoy optimum health and appearance, this book is a must.”

“This is the book about achieving optimal health and weight that the scientific community has been waiting for; the "Gold Standard" via which all other diets can be judged. Dr. Fuhrman takes the latest scientific information from thousands of research studies and puts together the most effective and healthiest dietary approach possible. Everything else is just second-rate. All health professionals must read this book. I apply Dr. Fuhrman's advice to my own life because it not only makes scientific sense, it works!”

“Simply a great piece of work. Dr. Fuhrman has painstakingly taken the time to wade through the ever burgeoning mountain of evidence which proves that the American diet and many physician supported fad diets are not only unhealthy but are a contributing if not the direct cause of our enormous public cardiovascular and cancer problem. His references are excellent and exhaustive. As individuals and as a nation we cannot ignore this book. Dr Fuhrman, I commend you.”

“Dr. Fuhrman's book is a world of nutritional wisdom. He has illustrated a comprehensive familiarity with the world's scientific literature, weaving in his extensive clinical experience and insight that is a must read for every physician in America. Dr. Fuhrman offers a new, more effective approach to the treatment of various diseases and safe and effective methods of prevention. I recommend everyone remember his health equation and follow it for life.”

“Finally a diet book that looks at the science of eating right in an accurate fashion. Most diet books have little basis in proven physiology. Dr. Fuhrman's book, Eat to Live deals with why we gain weight, how to lose weight, and how to stay thin and healthy for life, and he backs it up with real scientific data. All controversy ends after you read this book. It will be the final word in diet books and the one I recommend to my patients.”

“Dr. Fuhrman comes from a practice of medicine with an excellent knowledge of nutritional science. He has superbly bridged the gap between the highly technical world of science and the real world of everyday health practice. This book is both readable and reliable.”

“Eat to Live by Joel Fuhrman, M.D. is a landmark publication, a gimmick-free guide to the food and exercise requirements for a robust life. Introducing the key notion that healthy eating begins with the understanding that Health=Nutrients/Calories, Fuhrman explores all of the virtues of a plant-based diet. The book is meticulously referenced and includes irrefutable evidence that vegetables and fruit, rather than grains, starches, and animal foods define the basis of good nutrition. Fuhrman deftly exposes the high protein and "blood type" diets currently popular, and includes case studies of the gratifying responses of his own patients to his simple food and exercise recommendations.”

“To write a great and informative book on the cutting edge of health care, one that can really help people, it would take a pioneer doctor. Such is the nature of Eat To Live whose author, Dr. Fuhrman, is a hundred years ahead of his time. Fortunate is the reader who happens to come across this book. He or she walks under a lucky star!”

“I have been a cancer surgeon for the past 15 years and legions of patients under my care have asked, "Doctor, what do I eat now that I have been diagnosed with cancer?" The real question they were asking was, "Doctor, how do I use food to help regain my health?" Intuitively, I knew that food was medicine, but wanted supportive information that had undergone rigorous scientific documentation and was "new age" in its perspective and passion. My readings spanned the gamut from the dogmatic anecdotal accounts of self-healed evangelists and raw foodists to the writings of inflexible, pedantic laboratory scientists. Still, I was unfulfilled. Finally I found Dr. Joel Fuhrman's book, "Eat to Live" and immediately knew I was in a sacred avant garde stream of information regarding food and chronic degenerative diseases. This book is simply an awesome piece of work and fills the gap between the ivory tower based nutrition research, which is difficult for the average person to interpret and the unsubstantiated claims of new age proponents of nutrition. For me, this is a book that dropped out of heaven.”
