Eat to Live: The Revolutionary Formula for Fast and Sustained Weight Loss by Joel Fuhrman
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
I like the concept behind the eating plan in this book, but I found the book itself longer than necessary.
I heard the “one pound raw, one pound cooked” daily recommendation for vegetable consumption years ago and have been gradually attempting to modify my diet accordingly for some time. This book helped me to better conceptualize just how I could eat this much plant matter each day. It also helped me recognize that what I’d always considered “hunger” or even “hypoglycemia” was nothing of the sort. And I’m enjoying the recipes, especially the smoothies (but not so much the romaine/cashew butter/banana wraps).
I just think a pocket guide would be sufficient to get the ideas across, especially since I’m not persuaded to make major dietary changes based on “before” and “after” pictures.
