Eat More, Weigh Less will speak directly to all those folks who have been struggling to feel better, achieve a healthful weight and gain more energy while trying to sort through the conflicting, confusing onslaught of dietbook information. Dr. Dean Ornish suggests an eating lifestyle not a diet, based on whole, unprocessed grains, vegetables, fruits, legumes including soy, and nonfat dairy foods that is easy to follow, abundant in variety, and packed with nutrients. The book contains great recip ...more

If the ingredients list for each recipe in this book didn't have 15-20 ingredients or they weren't expensive foods, or if it didn't look like you'd spend literally all your spare time in the kitchen making these healthy meals, it might have been easier for me to be interested in this program; after all, the author has a lot of great points, and really most of it seems like common sense. But I don't have lots of money or lots of time. So I will have to look for something a little more practical f ...more

This was my introduction to the idea of lowfat/high bulk eating, and for that I will always be grateful. The text portion of the book is easy to read and understand.

Unfortunately, you'd have to have a full-time cook and lots of money to get much use out of the recipes!

Recommends it for: anyone wanting to change their life!
Recommended to Carol by: CVS pharmacy
Well, it is a serious life style change to adopt this program, but so far it has more or less been quite advantageous! I have lost 3 lbs in 2 weeks, and inches as well, which I have recorded each week, and will continue to do so. I have pledged 30 lbs to Biggest Loser's Feed America food bank program. I truly feel Dr. Ornish has nothing but wonderful and helpful information in this book. It is a matter of choosing a new lifestyle and adapting to it. Some take to it right away and love it. A bit ...more

This is a very, very restricted diet, yet very much not a fad diet. It's actually backed by science, and Doctor Ornish actually is well known in the medical community for being able to reverse blockages to the heart using diet, instead of surgery or drugs. So this actually isn't snake oil, but rooted in science, and the focus of the diet isn't actually losing weight, but getting healthy. The down side? Well, this diet bans meat, poultry, fish and seafood--which may be fine for vegetarians, but h ...more

Life Choice Program:
Food to eat: beans and legumes, fruits, grains, and vegetables.
Food to eat in moderation: nonfat dairy products and nonfat commercially produced products.
Food to eat rarely: meat, oils, avocados, olives, nuts/seeds, high/low-fat dairy, sugar, and alcohol. Alcohol is high in calories and your body turns it into simple sugars. Also, alcohol reduces your body's ability to burn fat by one third. Reduce salt intake (to help reduce water retention). Limit caffeine. Diet soda rei

I probably would have rated this book higher if it wasn't for the most part, a cookbook (250 pages of recipes). Then again, maybe not. I used to be a meat-eater and then suddenly after reading "Eat to Live" by Joel Fuhrman, I went vegan--just like that! I still eat the occasional meal with cheese or fish because it's extremely difficult to go out to eat without eating ANYthing animal-related, and vegan cheese is just gross! But I'm at least 90% vegan and feeling much healthier for doing so.

This eating program will not only help you lose weight but it will bring down your cholesterol numbers!

It seems a little out of date, especially the no fat school of thought.

I read this book 2 years ago. I hadn't had a chance to write back to Dr. Ornish to give him a feedback, but the steps I took really did take a long time as he said he would. Watching what I eat, how much I've eaten and knowing full well what I'm eating has certainly made a significant difference. I've not gained a lot of weight but I've certainly kept the weight I needed it to be.
Ricki
This is a fun read, surprisingly enough! I learned a lot about eating habits, how they are formed and how they can be improved to live more healthfully. He also has some really good recipes, although they can be a little involved.

This was the book that showed me how to cook without fat. It saved me after I spent a week in the hospital with a gallbladder attack.
