Many people find this to be a constant struggle. It’s OK to love food, but do you
Live to Eat ~ or Eat to Live.
Many of you know that I have a love affair with Dr.J Fuhrman’s Eat to Live book, it’s truly one of the most amazing~must~read~health~conscious books of forever! This saying above (care of Socrates) is also October’s Monthly Mantra….
So do you Eat to Live or Live to Eat?
If you haven’t already read (& re~read this book). Stop what you’re doing & go get a copy. Come back to this post when you are done. My book is dog~eared to death, underlined everywhere, highlighted in yellow & pink, & has stars all over the place. This is THE book to read if you are Over~Weight, have an Illness (Diabetes, Inflammation, Heart~Burn, etc). As you should know, any serious illness needs a serious book!
Some insights from the book are:
They should move Refined Grains like White Bread, up to the Sweets Category because Metabolically they’re basically the same.
Keep in mind that most of the calories in meat come from fat, green veggies are mostly protein.
Trying is definitely not good enough
When the fats you consume are from whole foods rather than oils, you gain nature’s protective package; a balance of vitamins, minerals, fiber & phytonutrients.
He shows us the truth about many things we thought we knew….
I even found this Incredible “Quote” in his book (a few times actually). & you know I had to share!!!
I’m assuming that you are on your way out the door to pick up this book. So I’m keeping this post short & sweet. If you want to be healthy, pick up this book. It’s like a Bible for Great Health & a Better Life.
Something important to keep in mind. The Eat to Live book doesn’t teach you yet another ‘Die~T’ that may fail. It teaches you a sustainable way to live, eat & be healthy.
Here is Dr. Fuhrman in his own words sharing some of his incredible wisdom!
Now. Have you changed your mind about the way you Live to Eat & Eat to Live?
