The plan focuses on eating foods that offer more nutrition for the body for the calories consumed. Dr Fuhrman believes when nutrients are high, the body kicks into fat burning and healing mode. The plan offers recipes for nutrient rich meals, meal plans and a six-week program that aims to remove the bodies need for unhealthy and filler foods.

The Eat to Live book is offered as a standalone book, CD set or eBook version. There are also several packages available on the website that includes the Eat to Live book.

The official website for Dr Fuhrman’s Eat to Live program offers book sales and memberships to the website. The paperback of the Eat to Live book is selling for $14.99 at the time of this review. The membership to the website costs $34.95 for the first 6 weeks and $7.95 a month thereafter or $99.00 a year.

  • The program focuses on eating nutrient rich meals.
  • The book includes meal plans and recipes.


  • The Eat to Live book is high priced.
  • In order to contact the doctor users have to pay for membership to the site.
  • The website uses other Drs names to boost support for the plan.


It is difficult to get passed the promotionary methods on the site to see the information about the Eat to Live program. The only real information the visitor gets from the website is that eating more nutrient dense meals will help you to lose weight. There are no supplements discussed and no information given about the specifics of the plan. The plan seems to focus on eating healthy and losing weight which is the same focus as many other diet plans and self help books available for far less money. When supporting a weight loss product, we tend to support ones that follow a healthy weight loss program that employs a fat burner and an appetite suppressant.

    I want to address some of the comments above, because I do not find them to be accurate. You do not need to become a member in order to buy any of the books or products that are on Dr Fuhrman’s website.
    There is lots of great information available in the library section of the site which I was able to access without joining.. Once I started looking around the site I decided to become a member so that I could read the forums and access all of the recipes and it was only $3.95 a month which I found quite reasonable!

    Also I was really impressed with Dr. Fuhrman’s supplements because he gave very detailed and scientifically referenced information about supplemental ingredients that could increase the risk of cancer, and why he designed his the way he did. I was able to make an informed decision on which supplements would be best for me to take.

    I eat no flour and no sugar now but would like to eliminate dairy and meat and follow your plan. My concern is all the recipes and prep time. Can I simplify with plain raw and cooked veggies and fruits? I guess boredom is a possibility but I need food fast and portable.

    I brought my two books on amazon, Live to eat, and the end of diabetes. I heard you on Dr. Oz show. I keep buying so many books and vit, ect. that I can’t afford it all. I don’t see why you don’t have your site for free if you really wanted to help all people. I like what I’am reading but still have some questions on some foods I likes. I have a lot of med problems and take a lot of pills. I want to get off these badly and my weight gain . Thanks hope you can answer my question .

    You can buy the book on Amazon, they have several copies at My local library.

    Hello Dr. Fuhrman,
    I have a history of Crohn’s Disease and have an ostomy. I watched your PBS program and am interested in boosting my immune system. I am interested in your diet, not for weight loss but for better health. My concern is that I am unable to tolerate any kind of beans, peas and uncooked vegetables especially broccoli,
    Due to these intolerances and sensitivities, and without a colon, I would like your advice as to whether your program would be appropriate for me.

    hi the doctor say i have IBS.

    Patrick Casey

    How can caffeen affect colesteral. There is nothing in that milk meat or oil byproduct

    Hi DJ
    Besides Dr. Furman’s advice, I also would advice you to try cinnamon and honey drink between meals and before sleep(1 tsp cinnamon in 1 cup of hot boiling water and 1tbs of honey) or if your BP is okay,try licorice tea that builds stomach wall less sensitive(?)besides all cooked food,for your bean intolerance,try to use cumin/coriander/
    tumeric/clover as spices when you cook beans/peas.For more questions,I would be glad to talk at’evergladnatural@yahoo.com’ or visit website’vibrantHerbal.com’ at contact page.Otherwise try above remedy and good
    luck to you.
