This book offers a "nutritarian" program for weight loss.

Those simply looking to lose those elusive last five pounds may find Dr. Joel Fuhrman's "nutritarian" approach a bit extreme. But those also wanting to reboot their immune system and cure chronic disease (including high blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes), should consider the author's call for "nutritarianism," a diet rich in antioxidants, minerals and phytochemicals. In "Eat to Live," Fuhrman argues that switching to a whole lot of green and ditching animal products, sugar and processed foods will optimize your health and will allow you to lose weight without a sense of deprivation. That's because Fuhrman's meal plans allow for unlimited amounts of fresh fruits, vegetables and beans.
