Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tiff | 2/19/2014

    " A book full of information about food, and its impact on health and longevity. Definitely made me more meat-conscious, and has started a vegetarian kick. Recipes in the back are vegan, and interesting, including some random desserts - black bean & date brownies? If you can get over the texture - they're delicious! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jan Schaeffler | 2/7/2014

    " I learned about this book through someone else and my first thoughts were that it is crazy to eat so many vegetables I have to say that I borrowed this book first from the library and bought it because I need to use it for reference. I never thought I could eat raw vegetables without gobs of oil or fattening dressing but I am finally acquiring a taste for raw veggies. I even like the way they make me feel over chocolate!! When I follow the plan I not only feel healthier but drop weight. The author treats nutrition as our medicine. He gives food a score called ANDI based on its nutritional density. Whole Foods now posts the scores next to each of their vegetables. Worth a read if you have concern for your health. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gail | 2/4/2014

    " I like the premise of the book, but found the recipes very limiting. Blueberries in just about everything? There were more on the list than blueberries. If the recipes aren't practical then it might be difficult for others to put into practice in their everyday life. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wendy | 1/27/2014

    " This book will definitely change the way I'll eat to be healthy. The author is an MD who is proselytizing the disease-preventing properties of certain foods. The book can be summed up as "every day eat some dark leafy greens, onions, mushrooms, berries, beans and nuts/seeds." All of these foods have powerful antioxidents and are packed with nutrients. I'll be reading his other books on nutrition as well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gryhndlady | 1/20/2014

    " Heard about this book on Dr. Oz's show. The first of the book if highly technical, but I'm wading through it. Since I have a lower immunity I am very curious about how following this plan can help me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Doris | 1/13/2014

    " Wow. I'm working on doing the work to eat this way, and am finding it's easier -- and tastier! -- than I ever expected. Now if it really does result in better health, I'm sold on Dr. Fuhrman! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Missy | 12/21/2013

    " I am using a lot of the suggestions in this book to eat healthier. It is quite an eye opener. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sabkymom | 12/18/2013

    " Probably the most balanced view (of all the books I've read) of what you should eat to improve your health and longevity. Written for the intellingent, but not too much medical jargon. Quick to read and excellent recipes in the back. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brenda Huntsman | 12/1/2013

    " Good info and a good one to refer back to on a never ending need to try and stay healthy as I age. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jana | 11/25/2013

    " I think, due to my scientific mind, I preferred "Eat to Live" over this book. Still good, though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Betty | 11/7/2013

    " Changed the way I think about food and disease. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda | 9/14/2013

    " not so very different from his other books, but a good reminder. eat your veggies, not your pets, and your body will thank you. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Teresa Marron | 1/12/2013

    " I love this book! I have been incrementally adding healthier foods on Dr Furmans lists to my diet and removing oils and meats. I feel much better and have actually lost 2 pounds in 2 weeks. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 12/1/2012

    " I thought this book was much better written than Disease Proof Your Child and as if not more powerful. I think his theory of a plant based diet has merit and I thought he presented it in an intelligent manner without dumbing it down to the point is loses value. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maureen Keene | 9/21/2012

    " Five stars because the message is so very important and clearly communicated. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelly Bianco | 8/4/2012

    " Very informative and interesting book. Not an easy read or a book you lose yourself in! But very useful and applicable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alecia | 3/12/2012

    " Literature review and interpretation by dr Fuhrman. This book gave me a guide for which veggies would multitask in my body for health, nutrition, and wellness. Some interpretations could have had other interpretations, but overall, fabulous education. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cheryl | 1/19/2012

    " An MD who explains why a predominantly plant based diet will preserve your health and minimize your weight and maximize your energy. Highly recommended for anyone with health problems who doesn't want, or can't afford, to get stuck on the endless and lethal prescription roller coaster. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jana | 11/6/2011

    " I think, due to my scientific mind, I preferred "Eat to Live" over this book. Still good, though. "
