Eat To Live

Eat to Live: The Revolutionary Formula for Fast and Sustained Weight LossEat to Live: The Revolutionary Formula for Fast and Sustained Weight Loss by Joel Fuhrman

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Eat To Live took everything I have learned about nutrition and put it all together. It was great. I do have a couple of problems with it, but I am still following the basic program outlined, just with a few tweaks.

Problem number 1: Nothing is said in this book about food combining. I don't agree with eating fruit with other foods besides greens.
Solution: Just eat the fruit first thing in the morning by itself, or a few hours after eating a meal. Easy.

Problem number 2: I don't agree with the suggested soy intake. Soy in Tofu is highly processed, and most soy out there is genetically engineered. No Thank You. Also, soy can wreak havoc on a Man's estrogen levels.
Solution: substitute almond milk for soy milk, and just plain avoid soy.

Those are the only problems I can think of. Other than that it was a great book.
I do recommend buying his newer Eat For Health books. If you can read Eat To Live and the other books also, then you are set up well. If you can only purchase one, get the Eat For Health. The second book is full of recipes that make this way of living/eating doable. I have loved every thing I have tried in that book.

Happy Healthy,
