This revised 2011 edition of Eat to Live includes many new success stories from readers of the original book, plus a brand new chapter offering insights into weight gain that highlight Dr. Fuhrman’s discovery of toxic hunger and the role food addiction plays in weight control. The book outlines Dr. Fuhrman’s nutrient-dense, plant-rich eating style, centered around his scientific-based knowledge that when the ratio of nutrients-to-calories is high, fat melts away, and health is restored. The book offers a precise six-week plan designed for rapid and sustainable weight loss. Readers are instructed how to leave behind the discomfort of food cravings and addiction to unhealthy foods and achieve remarkable weight loss without counting calories or portions. The results will amaze you and help keep you focused as your cholesterol, triglycerides, and blood pressure are lowered to healthy levels and ailments such as headaches, gastritis, indigestion, and nasal congestion disappear. This easy-to-follow, nutritionally sound diet can help anyone shed pounds quickly-and keep them off. Losing weight under Dr. Fuhrman's plan is not about willpower: it is about knowledge.
If you are a type 2 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 of your dreams. 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 over processed foods. These types of foods account for America's 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.
