Eat to Live by Dr Joel Fuhrman (www.drfuhrman.com and www.diseaseproof.com). While there are hundreds of weight loss books on the market this one appeals as it approaches the matter of superior nutrition from the point of view of cell health and using nutrition to PREVENT the initial changes in cells (frequently an inflammatory response) that precipitate just about every degenerative disease.
This book is about loving NUTRIENT DENSE food, that prevents cells from breaking down, savoring increased energy, reduce dependency on medications, and yes indeed, lose weight. This is an eating lifestyle that any people diagnosed with a serious illness take on immediately with the idea of “food as medicine”. Why wait? It makes a ton of sense and hard not to read without making at least some shifts in day to day purchasing and cooking choices.
