Eat to Live is a book written by Dr. Joel Fuhrman. And, in case you haven’t noticed, it’s our favorite whole-food, plant-based program around. Dr. Fuhrman refers to this lifestyle as NUTRITARIAN. It differentiates from the term “Vegan” because it’s not just about eliminating animal products from the diet. This program is centered on the principle of nutrient-density. There’s no junk food on the Eat to Live program. No salt, no oil, no processed foods, no preservatives, and no animal products. While eliminating these foods, you will instead eat 2 pounds of vegetables, whole grains, beans and legumes, whole food fats from plants, and as much fresh fruit as you’d like.
Here’s the foundation of Eat to Live: When you eliminate toxic foods and flood the body with nutrients, the body will begin to heal itself and unwanted fat will disappear.
