In watching the show, I felt like Dr. Oz dominated the conversation and made it seem like a commercial gimmick rather than coming from Dr. Fuhrman himself explaining the benefits and details of a nutritarian lifestyle. All the same, if the fancy title got more people to watch and look into the details of Eating to Live, I guess the segment did it's job.
I know that I have been getting more traffic through this blog and my blog email since the show, and I'm happy to hear that so many people are as interested as they are! I will assure any new readers that are hoping to change their health destiny that this is the way to do it! It may seem overwhelming and daunting at first, but with time and some practice, I know that you can make this lifestyle work for you. I would suggest, first of all, to buy Dr. Fuhrman's book Eat to Live. Check out the box below for a link to purchase the book on Amazon.
The reason I would suggest getting the book is because it gives you information about why this is the right eating plan for your body and your health and compares it to the Standard American Diet (SAD). It also helps explain topics such as toxic hunger, food addictions, the calcium/dairy myth, and why plant proteins are better than animal proteins. It also provides you a breakdown of a 6-week eating plan to start you off on your path to losing weight and gaining incredible health. Along with two weeks worth of example meal plans, the book also contains over 30 pages of nutritarian recipes.
Another source I would suggest that new E2Lers should look into is Dr. Fuhrman's website. It has loads of information and great tools to help you better understand how to get started and stick with the E2L plan. Along with Dr. Fuhrman's website, there are also countless blogs like mine that regularly post new recipes and other information. Here are some of my favorites:
Do you have any words of encouragement or advice for those that are new to the Eat To Live lifestyle, or to those that are still on the fence?
