Eat to Live
The Revolutionary formula for Fast and Sustained Weight Loss
By Joel Fuhrman, M.D. 

     This book takes a slightly different approach to weight loss by concentrating on health. It can be described as looking at the ratio between nutrients and calories, where the more nutrient-dense food one eats, the more the person will be satisfied by eating fewer calories. Dr. Fuhrman suggests that people follow an extremely rigid change of eating pattern, where people eat mostly vegetables and beans. He states that several people have lost several pounds of fat in a rapid amount of time. Dr. Fuhrman also spends some time talking about the importance of exercising and that if people are not able to exercise, they need to change their eating patterns and then attempt to do something, even if it's for ten minutes.

     In the beginning of his book, Dr. Fuhrman discusses medical and biological explanations of why people become fat and how eating nutrient-denser food is preferable. This reader agrees that people do not eat enough fruits and vegetables or drink enough liquid, but that few people would be able to follow this rigid diet plan.
