I’m almost finished reading the
book Eat To Live, by Dr. Joel Fuhrman.
It’s been and eye opener for me in
that it’s showing how to reverse most
of the health conditions men my age
I’m happy to report that I don’t have
any illnesses, I don’t take any Meds
and I do work out at the gym 3-5
days a week….. and I’m 70 years old.
I certainly haven’t eaten right all these
years and I gained weight that I shouldn’t
have gained…. And I’ve lost it…. Several
times…… as most of us have.
This book has shown me that I can eat
all I want….. and be satiated from
over eating ….. and still lose weight or
maintain my desired weight.
The key is to EAT TO LIVE…. By eating
the right foods and AVOIDING the
So…. Tonight I’m giving you the EAT
TO LIVE Six-Week eating plan. During
this time… if you have high cholesterol,
high blood pressure, high triglycerides…
If you have type-2 diabetes,,,have excess
body fat….. If you have hormonal
imbalances, glucose absorption issues,
varicose veins, hemorrhoids and
constipation…….these conditions can
be brought under control or at
least get you moving in the right
direction during this six week period.
Here’s what to do…..
Eat all you want…. (of these foods)
+ raw vegetables (force yourself
to eat at least 1lb daily) –I like this!
+cooked greens and non-green
nutrient-rich vegetables (1lb. daily)
-these veggies are: eggplant, mushrooms,
peppers, onions, tomatoes, carrots,
+beans, legumes, bean sprouts (1 cup daily)
+fresh fruits at least 4 daily.
Eat Limited amounts of these foods.
+cooked starchy vegetables or whole grains:
– butternut and acorn squash, rice, sweet
potatoes, cereal (not more than one
serving or one cup daily.) Use coconut or
almond milk preferably.
+raw nuts and seeds, 1 oz daily
+avocado, 2 oz daily
+dried fruit, 2 table spoons daily
+ground flaxseed, 1 tablespoon daily
+fruit juice (eat the fruit)
NOTE: these are the recommendations given
by Dr. Fuhrman and he does NOT believe in
MODERATION…. In fact he says….
SO…. Take these guidelines and stick to them
for just six weeks.
- 1. Weigh yourself.
- 2. Calculate your BMI.
- 3. Subtract 24 from your BMI
and Multiply that number by
six(6)…. This will determine your
NOTE: athletes and muscular framed
folks can and should use other measures.
NOTE 2…. Dr. Fuhrman uses another measure:
(MEN: 105 lbs for first five feet of height and
add 5 lbs for every inch over 5 feet.
WOMEN: 95 lbs for the first 5 feet of height
and add 4 lbs for every inch over 5 feet.
+man 5’8” should weigh 145 lbs
+woman 5’4” should weight 111 lbs.
(These weights seem low, but lean
people live longer)
Ok… that’s it for tonight…. Remember last
night I wrote about the PAIN OF DISCIPLINE,
and what it takes to accomplish great things.
Well… this requires the same effort.
Reminds me of Internet Marketing…. Same thing
here…. Discipline, structure, action…..
I love what Tom Peters wrote in his book
In Search Of Excellence…… READY, FIRE, AIM…
So….let’s get started… and make adjustments
along the way….
