This book was suggested by an acquaintance who lost 20 lbs in her first month. If your goal is to have a healthier diet, I imagine that only following 50% of his advice will help a lot.
As for me, I now have to face a lifelong aversion to raw veggies. Not sure how I will manage that.
Starches are also bumped to the bottom of the list, which increases the cost of groceries by over half. I agree that nutrition is good, but how much is actually utilized by the body, and how much is made waste? The people in the China study (which Dr. Fuhrman cites often) seem to be doing fine eating over half their calories from rice.
I very much respect Dr. Fuhrman, and appreciated his book very much, which is why I gave it 4 stars. However I feel the diet is misses the mark when it comes to a long term practical diet.
emphasizes the on the simplest theory about the health of humanity.
And its very simple: instead of living to eat, EAT TO LIVE!
This book had a very profound impact on me and I literary started shedding pounds by
simply understanding the science behind eating healthy.
North Americans need to understand that the pharmaceutical industry is multi-billion dollar
industry and the best source of medication is not solved through popping pills but its simply
achieved by having a healthier diet.
His basic advice is to eat the most nutrient-dense foods, and eat as much of them as you want. I love the approach that you can eat more, as much as you want actually, and just get healthier and healthier. I feel fantastic following Fuhrman's advice combined with John McDougall's. Both of these MDs will provide everything you need to know about plant-based nutrition.
