In this new edition, which incorporates the latest scientific nutritional data, Fuhrman’s restrictive diet plan is designed for clinically overweight people who suffer from a spectrum of lifestyle/obesity-induced conditions like diabetes and heart disease and need to drop a significant amount of weight fast—about 20 pounds in the first six weeks. The basis of Fuhrman’s program is Nutrient Density, expressed by the simple formula health equals nutrients divided by calories. Fuhrman’s “secret” to optimum health and permanent weight keep an eye on is giving the body only what it needs. An aggressive six-week vegetarian plan segues into a regimen that includes a limited amount of animal products, like lean fish or egg whites once a week. Even though proven and sound, this guidebook is not for someone who wants to lose those last 10 pounds or fit into her wedding dress; this is a serious undertaking for dieters whose umpteen previous efforts have failed and whose health is endangered.

Americans spend more than $40 billion annually on diets and weight-reducing programs, many of which work temporarily, fail, or may be dangerous. Fuhrman’s nutrient-packed, healthful approach to nutrition combined with quick weight loss can be expressed in this equation, health=nutrients intake/calories intake. The more nutrient-heavy the intake, the less caloric and more healthy it is. Encouraging, engaging personal stories from Fuhrman’s remedy of over more than 10,000 patients demonstrate his supposition that eating ever-larger portions of healthful, high-nutrient foods decreases desire for low-nutrient foods, loosening their addictive hold on people. Pictures work effectively in this newly revised update of a nutrition-weight keep an eye on classic. Drawings show, for instance, the stomach-filling efficiency of 400 calories of high-nutrition intake versus 400 calories of high-fat and oil consumption, which leaves a nearly empty stomach hungry. With FAQs, glossary, end notes, and an index for user friendliness. Pass the eggplant! –Whitney Scott
