Losing weight under Dr. Fuhrman's plan is not about willpower, it is about knowledg...more

If you mean is the fuhrman diet "hype" the answer is no . Its based on over 2000 research papers of tehmostg prestigious medical institutes in the world
The Fuhrman diet is another name for the"EXCELLENT NUTRITION DIET " taught by Dr Max Gerson diet , the Dr Norman Walker diet and the Dr Ann Wigmore diet and many others brfore Joel Fuhrman ( see my review )
There are many many many many thousands of case studies on Dr Fuhrmans and Dr Gersons websites where the fuhrman diet has cured obesity , cancer , heart attack risk ,diabetes . These case studies to show it not hype but true
to name a few
Also Dr Fuhrman is NOT discrediting the mediterranean diet as HISTORICALLY followed by the mediterranean people of 100 years ago .
According to https://academic.oup.com/biomedgeront... THAT diet " Historically, in many but not all of the 22 countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea, a great abundance and diversity of nonstarchy vegetables, minimally processed whole-grain cereals, legumes, nuts, and seeds were staple foods for both men and women (Table 1). Unlike in North America and Europe, meat, fish, milk, cheese, and eggs were luxurious foods. For example, in Southern Italy in the 1950s, very little meat was eaten, typically only once every week or two, and milk was never used except in coffee (caffé macchiato) or for infants. Sugar and white potatoes were consumed only in very small quantities, and butter or cream were never used. Cold pressed extra-virgin olive oil was the principal source of fat. Fruits and very small amounts of local cheese were rather regularly consumed, together with a moderate intake of red wine during meals" coupled with hard physical exercise "
Dr Fuhrman pointed out that now-a-days people sit in front of the computer and think that by consuming olive oil and refined foods they are on mediterranean diet and life style and will get teh same benefits that mediterraneans got 100 years ago . So anything you read about following a mediterranean diet today being the healthiest diet in the world is definitely "hype" if it does not include huge amounts of salad , whole foods and no refined sugar , grains or fats (in other words practically the same as fuhrman's diet
Plus while there are many thousands of case studies of how a nutrient dense whole food vegan diet cures cancer there are practically none where the mediterranean has cured cancer and even when it has reduced risk or prevented cancer "These observed beneficial effects are mainly driven by higher intakes of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains." source -https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/arti...
so which is the healthier diet ? The one that can cure cancer and reverse chronic disease or the one that can merely prevent it ?
- olive oil is NOT a health food
- cancer is a fruit- and vegetable-deficiency disease
- 2% milk is 35% fat (by weight it is 2%, which is irrelevant)
- fruits/veggies contain THOUSANDS of phytonutrients that make them superior to any derivative foods i.e. fruit juice, apple sauce... further proof that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts
-all medications are toxic to varying degrees, whether side effects are experienced or not
- not all proteins are alike; pr ...more
Now here is the downside to the diet:
1. It's extreme compared to the American diet so unless you are very motivated to change, the diet will prove to be foreign and challenging.
2.Since no one really eats like this, it's hard to find healthy options when you go out to restaurants. ...more
This book is great because it provides basic nutrition information and provides summaries of medical/health studies to help educate you and provide motivation to eat healthy. You can tell me a million times to eat my fruit not drink it but if you tell me exactly what happens in my body suddenly I think "Oh! I don't want to do that" and I don ...more

I know, I know, only a three? Nothing personal to the author, it was a ton of good info and I will never think of what I eat the same way again. I've been practicing it this week, but have yet to get on the scale. I think I have definitely lost weight though. I'm just not a non-fiction lover to be bluntly honest (I agree there is good info, just not what I jump excited at.) This book could have been MAJORLY condensed. In ...more
300+ pages of "Eat my diet and watch the pounds slide off". Granted, we need to get back to eating more fruits and vegetables, but I wonder how practical this diet is and how likely people will stick to it. I'm also not a fan of how Fuhrman nearly promises that this one-size-fits-all diet will miraculously get rid of all medications a person is one and eradicate as varied diseases and ailments as asthma, cancer, diabetes, and IBS. He insults people who don't want to get on the diet ...more
Basically, Fuhrman's theory is that we should be eating mostly vegetables, fruits, beans, and nuts. Everything else (dairy and meat, oils and fats) is mostly not very good for us. A little bit is okay, but not much, whereas it's nearly impossible to overeat fresh produce. He recommends a six week period of only eating the good stuff in order to cure your body of the addictions we have ...more
Problem number 1: Nothing is said in this book about food combining. I don't agree with eating fruit with other foods besides greens.
Solution: Just eat the fruit first thing in the morning by itself, or a few hours after eating a meal. Easy.
Problem number 2: I don't agree with the sug ...more

I have to say, as a person who thoroughly researched vegetaranism about 15 years ago I knew most of the information in the book already but had forgotten some of the key/crucial elements of eating well.
My entire family has been following the diet for about three weeks now. The first two weeks I was down 7 lbs. I have a significant amount of weight to loose and I have tried pretty mu ...more
