Eat to Live Book Review and Giveaway
When I first decided to go plant-based with my eating, I didn’t have a clue how to start. Oh, I knew that I would be eating fruits and vegetables mostly, but what else? And how much? As with everything else in my life, I reached into the wealth of books out there for help.
One of the first books I read was Eat to Live by Joel Fuhrman, MD. (The whole title of the book is Eat to Live: The amazing nutrient-rich program for fast and sustained weight loss.) A friend from The Helpful Vegan Facebook Group recommended it and it was well worth reading.
Not only does it explain how to lose weight and sustain it, but it also explains nutrition in understandable terms. It is not completely plant-based as it offers the option of small amounts of animal products once or twice per week. Eat to Live is packed full of valuable information to put you on the right track to eat for health as well as information on transitioning to a plant-based diet. Here is an overview of the information covered:
- What to eat and why.
- Where the American diet went wrong.
- Understanding hunger, cravings, and addiction.
- A simple explanation of how what we eat causes diseases and how we can reverse many of them.
- How to lose weight healthfully.
- Weight management over the long haul.
- Feeling full and making an easy transition to eating fruit, veggies, nuts, seeds, legumes as your main menu.
I highly recommend this book as a good foundation for anyone wanting to – as I say often – be the healthiest version of yourself.
Because I gave this book a FIVE-APPLE rating on The Helpful Blogger Book Review Scale (1 to 5 – five being the best apple in town), I am offering an autographed copy of it as a giveaway.
