Publisher's Summary

In The End of Dieting, Joel Fuhrman M.D., a board–certified family physician who specializes in preventing and reversing disease through nutritional and natural methods, and #1 New York Times best-selling author of Eat to Live, Super Immunity and The End of Diabetes, delivers a powerful paradigm-shifting audiobook that shows us how and why we never need to diet again.
Fuhrman says, "By reading this book, you will understand the key principles of the science of health, nutrition and weight loss. It will give you a simple and effective strategy to achieve - and maintain - an optimal weight without dieting for the rest of your life. This new approach will free you forever from a merry-go-round of diets and endless, tedious discussions about dieting strategies. This is the end of dieting."

Read Eat to Live first

If you aren't familiar with any of his previous works, read Eat to Live first. This book seems to be the answer to criticisms and further questions. It is packed with studies, critiques of those studies and application to his message (if you prefer to see that kind of stuff than listen to it, get the kindle version). He also breaks down why other popular diets don't work (including eat to live vs. Paleo, Mediterranean, Wheat belly and Low Fat Vegan) and the redeeming qualities of those diets. This part was pretty interesting. In the last bit, he lays out the specifics of the nutritarian lifestyle. He gives suggestions for those who complain of lack of time to food prep. He also talks about how to prepare food so that it is very appealing. Some of the concepts are repeated but that's to drive those ideas home so that you recognize their importance. At the end I thought it was interesting how he also addresses his product line as to why so many products, their price and what it funds. It positively changed how I view his "brand."

The supplemental document is fabulous. Packed with lots of information and recipes. All the sidebars seem to be there as well as charts, images and more. I don't feel deprived of the kindle version with this document.

For performance, I would have preferred to hear Joel Fuhrman read the *whole* book (not just the beginning and end only). There were some medical terms that were strangely pronounced (unrelated to accent) and the speaker lacks the passion Joel Fuhrman has for his work. That passion would have made it easier to listen to although the speaker isn't terrible to listen to either.

Bottom line: I definitely recommend it.

YES, this is a another diet...

Let me start with by saying that I AM vegan and I have read nearly every book under the sun about the health benefits of veganism. Somehow the title of this one threw me off and I decided to give it a listen. And here’s the scrope:
Joel Furhman promotes a medium carb vegan diet, with up to 1.5oz of animal product per day. Yes, you read that correct.
Joel Furhman basically attacks John McDougall (without mentioning his name, but c’mon, we all know who he’s talking about) by saying his high carb, low fat approach was both extreme and unnecessary. So instead, he tells you to not eat rice (with the exception of wild rice, which actually isn’t a rice at all), no potatoes, no bread — eat mostly vegetables and no more than 4 oz. of nuts/seeds per day.
Oil is still demonized (as it’s processed crap).
In other words, it’s still a diet!

If you’re trying to learn more about a healthier way of living — for your body and our planet — read “Proteinaholic” by Dr Garth Davis instead.
