Book Summary
Losing weight under Dr. Fuhrman's plan is not about willpower, it's about knowledge. The key to this revolutionary diet is the idea of ‚Äč‚Äčnutrient density, expressed by the simple formula Health = Nutrients / Calories. When the ratio of nutrients to calories is high, the fat is melted and health is restored. Losing 20 pounds in two to three weeks is just the beginning. The more nutrient-dense foods Dr. Fuhrman's patients eat, the more satisfied they will be with fewer calories, and the less they will crave foods high in fat and calories. Designed for people who need to lose 50 pounds or faster, EAT TO LIVE works for all dieters, even those who want to lose as little as 10 pounds quickly. No willpower is required, just knowledge.

Book Review
In this new edition, incorporating the latest scientific data on nutrition, Fuhrman's restrictive diet plan is designed for clinically overweight people who suffer from a spectrum of obesity / lifestyle-induced conditions such as diabetes and heart disease and need to lose a significant amount of weight quickly. —About 20 pounds in the first six weeks. The foundation of the Fuhrman program is nutrient density, expressed by the simple formula: health equals nutrients divided by calories. Fuhrman's "secret" to optimal health and permanent weight control is to give the body only what it needs. An aggressive six-week vegetarian plan turns into a regimen that includes a limited amount of animal products such as lean fish or egg whites once a week. Although proven and solid, this guide is not for someone who wants to lose those last 10 pounds or put on their wedding dress; This is a serious undertaking for dieters whose past countless efforts have failed and whose health is in jeopardy.
