Eat To Live

I am reading Eat To Live by Joel Fuhrman. I am curious if others have read this book and what they think.

Ni, I have not read that book, but it has an excellent title. How are YOU finding it?

I have read it. It's an eye opener, especially in the light of that recent study on the link between meat consumption & cancer. I tried to follow his diet for a while found that it didn't really work for me. He recommends eating huge amount of vegetables and minimizing meat consumption. I just cannot eat that much, and the vegetables alone just did not satisfy me.

The science is starting to break Joel's way- there have been a bunch of new studies pointing to links between excessive saturated fat and processed food consumption. Now this is a grey area, but I think most people would agree that fruits and veggies are good for you. The question is how much you need, what the mix is.

He has actually started to write a series of articles for Peertrainer, and we will have the first one up shortly. If there are any specific questions you have for him, we will ask.

Question for Dr Joel Fuhrman about Olive Oil

I've read Eat To Live and thought he made some excellent points. I tried the diet 2 months after joining PeerTrainer, but only lasted 2 days. It is very hard to wean ones self from meat and diary cold turkey after a lifetime of eating it everyday. However, I've been dieting now for about 8 months (7 months on PeerTrainer) and have cut back on my meat and diary substantially, and think that I might do better this time around attempting the diet (lifestyle change!)

However, I'm curious about the comment in the above article on PT

"And take a look at Olive Oil. At 120 calories per tablespoon, the nutrient density score is very low. Omitting Olive Oil from your healthy salad may be the first step in incorporating nutrient density into your life."

I thought Olive Oil was a necessary fat. The body and brain need fat to survive. What does Dr. Fuhrman have to say about this??
