Publisher's Summary

Why do some of us get sick with greater frequency than others? What makes us more susceptible to illness? Are we doomed to get sick when our coworkers and family members do? Is there a secret to staying healthy?
Joel Fuhrman, M.D., a leading expert and board-certified medical specialist in prevention and reversing disease, offers a comprehensive guide to superior health.
Based on the latest scientific research, Super Immunity shows us how we can become almost totally resistant to colds, influenza, and other infections.
The evidence is overwhelming: we can supercharge our immune system to protect our bodies against disease - everything from the common cold to cancer. Nutritional science has made phenomenal strides and discoveries in recent years, and when this new research is applied it enables us to seize control of our health like never before. Dr. Fuhrman explains this new science, providing everything you need to know to put this knowledge into action in your kitchen and in your life.
What we eat has everything to do with our health, and, unfortunately, too many of us are living with a severely depleted immune function. Our dietary choices are making us sicker, shortening our lives, and costing us billions of dollars in doctor visits, hospital stays, and prescription medications. But Dr. Fuhrman doesn’t believe more medical care is the answer. Rather, he explains the solution is to change the way we eat. The standard American diet is nutrient deficient. We are eating too many highly processed foods, foods with added sweeteners, and animal fats and protein. At the same time, we are not eating enough fruits, beans, seeds, and vegetables, which leaves us lacking in hundreds of the most important immune-building compounds. By changing our diets and combining foods that contain powerful immune-strengthening capabilities, we can prevent most common modern diseases.
Combining the latest data from clinical tests, nutritional research, and results from thousands of patients, Dr. Fuhrman proves that super immunity exists and is well within reach for those who choose it. We all have the ability to live healthier, stronger, and longer than ever before. Isn’t it time you discovered super immunity?

Great Program but Where are the PDFs?

I am 3 weeks into the initial phase of Eat to Live so already at the strictest phase outlined in this book -- so I am staying put nutritionally. I do have a family dinner once a week and allow myself a slight indulgence at that meal -- when I say slight I mean a small serving of fish or low fat dairy or an extra whole grain or vegetable starch, not meat, poultry, full fat dairy or sugary desert.

I have RA and was very interested in the testamonials in this book. The improvement in my overall health has been amazing and I have lost 10 lbs - which considering that I had already been dieting for 5 months, and losing very very slowly, before begining begining ETL is amazing.

I gave this audio book only 4 stars because once again just like with Eat to Live - I had to buy the print book as well in order to get the menus and recipes. I feel it is unfair that audible readers do not get the same PDFs with recipes and menus that come with the audiobook CD version.

Life-saving book (and pdf is here)

The pdf is available above, just under the Publisher's Summary where it says, "Download the accompanying reference guide".

Dr. Fuhrman is a national treasure. I, my husband, and many of our friends and family have had health issues cured by following Dr. Fuhrman's sensible, logical, and scientifically sound recommendations. These issues include depression, psoriasis, allergies, high cholesterol, weight issues, and high blood pressure.

We now eat the way Dr. Fuhrman recommends because it is easy and delicious. We will never stop eating this way because we are not willing to give up our new found health and energy. Good health and vitality are the body's natural state when you give it the nutrients it needs to thrive.
