Taste is a matter of personal preference, of course. And most people think the food you’re “allowed” to eat on a diet – especially one that’s heavy on fruits and vegetables – is bound to be bland, boring and tasteless.
I’m happy to say, I didn’t find that true of Dr. Joel Fuhrman’s recipes in his Eat To Live bestseller. My wife and I bought the book in the summer of 2011, and it really helped both of us each our weight loss goals. Below is a picture of me in November, 2009, while my wife and I were visiting a relative who’d just had a baby. At the time, I weighed 245 pounds.
Watch the following video to learn how well Dr. Fuhrman’s recipes worked for me.
Eat To Live Recipes Recommended in National Post
The National Post recently ran an article called Ideas for improving our eating habits on its website. The Post invited readers to offer suggestions on how to make people more aware of the obesity epidemic and how they should pay more attention to good nutrition and healthy diet. One reader made the following suggestion.
Give people a copy of Dr. Joel Fuhrman’s book Eat to Live and suggest they follow his “nutritarian” way of eating. 90% of the daily diet should consist of nutrient-rich plant foods: vegetables (especially green leafy vegetables); fresh fruit; beans and legumes; raw nuts, seeds and avocados; and whole grains. A micronutrient-rich diet reverses and prevents disease, and tastes great. The North American diet causes cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and other preventable diseases.
