The Eat To Live Diet was created by Dr. Joel Fuhrman, MD. Regardless of whether or not you have failed to lose weight before, Dr. Fuhrman's diet claims that you will lose as much as 20 pounds in 6 weeks. The diet is based on the concept of nutrient density. H=N/C or Health = Nutrients/Calories.
How Does It Work?
Dr. Fuhrman provides two plans for six week weight loss. One plan is vegetarian, the other allows for limited amounts of animal products, which is one serving of lean fish per week and one egg white omelet per week. Calorie counting and portion control are not required.
What You Can Eat:
Raw vegetables...eat as much as you want
Beans, tofu, bean sprouts...at least one cup per day or more
Cooked green vegetables, mushrooms,peppers, eggplants, tomatoes
Fruit...at least four servings daily
Starchy vegetables and whole grains up to one cup daily
Avocado...up to two oz. daily
Raw nuts...up to one oz daily
Oils for meals...up to one teaspoon daily
Ground flax...up to one tablespoon daily

No sweets, almost no meat and eggs, and no dairy may be difficult
If you do not include animal products, you should supplement B-12, vitamin D and probably omega 3 fatty acids.
Diet difficulty is hard
The Eat To Live Diet is a wonderful diet which will promote weight loss and good health. I give it a thumbs up, but I do NOT recommend this diet. The reason is that it is quite difficult so the chances of sticking with this diet are not likely for many people.
Thank you for reading, my friends, I wish you much success on your weight loss journey.
