Eat to Live or Chicken Soup for the Caregivers Soul

Eat to Live: The Revolutionary Formula for Fast and Sustained Weight Loss

Author: Joel Fuhrman

When Mehmet O or any of New York's leading doctors have a patient whose life depends on losing weight, they call on Joel Fuhrman, M.D. In Eat to Live, Dr. Fuhrman offers his healthy, effective, and scientifically proven plan for shedding radical amounts of weight quickly, and keeping it off.Losing weight under Dr. Fuhrman's plan is not about will power, it is about knowledge. The key to this revolutionary diet is the idea of nutrient density, as expressed by the simple formula, Health = Nutrients/Calories. When the ratio of nutrients to calories is high, fat melts away and health is restored. Losing 20 pounds in two to three weeks is just the beginning. The more high-nutrient food Dr. Fuhrman's patients consume, the more they are satisfied with fewer calories, and the less they crave fat and high-calorie foods. Designed for people who must lose 50 pounds or more in a hurry, Eat to Live works for every dieter, even those who want to lose as little as 10 pounds quickly. No willpower required-just knowledge!
