Hailed a "medical breakthrough" by Dr. Mehmet Oz, EAT TO LIVE offers a highly effective, scientifically proven way to lose weight quickly. The key to Dr. Joel Fuhrman's revolutionary six-week plan is simple: health = nutrients / calories. When the ratio of nutrients to calories in the food you eat is high, you lose weight. The more nutrient-dense food you eat, the less you crave fat, sweets, and high-caloric foods. EAT TO LIVE has been revised to include inspiring success stories from people who have used the program to lose shockingly large amounts of weight and recover from life-threatening illnesses; Dr. Fuhrman's nutrient density index; up-to-date scientific research supporting the principles behind Dr. Fuhrman's plan; new recipes and meal ideas; and much more. This easy-to-follow, nutritionally sound diet can help anyone shed pounds quickly-and keep them off.

This book contains excellent information about nutrition. It is easy to apply to your life, either to make little changes or to alter your whole body. This book was a little too technical for me, but I have discovered that this author also has easier-to read books, if you need them.

Predictable and long-winded
I have read books like this before. The advice may be sound, and to a large extent I agree with it, but it is very repetitive, as though saying something often makes it more true. How about a concise presentation of the research, without jargon, and an easy-to-find plan to follow?
Having lost 50 lbs. before I read this, I was looking for something to kick-start the next phase, and this IS proving somewhat successful, so I can forgive some of the boring repetition. But essentially this is nothing new - just rephrased.

A reference book
Tis is a smallish book but big on information & creating incentives & guidelines for losing weight while eating healthfully.
It's wise to regard this as a reference book, to be read slowly over time.

An interesting concept and it works. However, one can get tired of beans. Fruit and salads are great!!
Publishers Weekly, 2011-01-17 In this new edition, which incorporates the latest scientific nutritional data, Fuhrman's restrictive diet plan is designed for clinically overweight people who suffer from a spectrum of lifestyle/obesity-induced conditions like diabetes and heart disease and need to drop a significant amount of weight fast-about 20 pounds in the first six weeks. The basis of Fuhrman's program is Nutrient Density, expressed by the simple formula health equals nutrients divided by calories. Fuhrman's "secret" to optimum health and permanent weight control is giving the body only what it needs. An aggressive six-week vegetarian plan segues into a regimen that includes a limited amount of animal products, like lean fish or egg whites once a week. Although proven and sound, this guidebook is not for someone who wants to lose those last 10 pounds or fit into her wedding dress; this is a serious undertaking for dieters whose umpteen previous efforts have failed and whose health is endangered.
