Win a Copy of the New Eat to Live by Dr. Joel Fuhrman


What program or programs are you working that are working for you? Have you lost weight or gained energy? Leave a comment describing your recent experiences and get entered in a random drawing to win a free copy of the revised edition of Eat to Live.

Just in time for the new year--and these books are hard to come by--they are only available at http://www.drfuhrman.com/ and the customer service person that I spoke to said they are going to run out of them just based on the pre-sales of the book. But I've got the winner's copy in transit to me right now!

Winner will be announced on January 1, 2011.

Hi Wendy,
What a great idea doing a contest. I've recently 'tweaked' my eating program ala Caldwell Esselstyn and gone no oil at all (was only doing a drizzle here and there before but confess to also using Earth Balance). I've noticed a major change increase in energy and the stuck scale has begun moving again--in the right direction- :-). {I did a massive 9 hours straight shopping marathon over in Cols. this week, and didn't even have dinner....that would have been impossible for me to do last year!}

I also really try to be strict with going with whole foods and probably eat about 60-70% raw although it's not really intentional...just kind of works out that way.

Thanks again for your blog....it is so very helpful.

Great blog Wendy! I am new to all this and just recently found your blog. I have always tried to incorporate more veggies and less meat into my diet, but just over the last couple months I really made a better effort to cut out animal products. I am really starting to notice a difference in energy and my husband just told me last night that I am looking thinner...so that weight is going off! Yeah! That did it for me! I will continue this! And hoorah for green smoothies! Renae in Ohio

Hi Wendy!! I have recently started walking in the evening after dinner. I clean the kitchen and my husband takes the boys while I go down to the basement and pop in a Leslie Sansone dvd and just walk. Also on my days off a girlfriend and I have started walking around the local college campus. Paired with recipes I have taken from your blog...I feel great. Slowly but surely the weight is coming off. I see how important eating healthy truly is for our health and have my boys in on it too. I was making my oldest (7) tea the other day for his cough and he gasped when I took out the sugar. "Mom, thats not healthy!!!" LOL, I am so proud. By sharing your insights and recipes you are helping this family become more happy and healthy!!! Thanks :) -Lisa in Illinois

i love the idea of focussing on salads, soups and shakes. i get a csa box weekly full of greens and sometimes i feel overwhelmed, but then i start cooking or blending them up and feel so good, no great, about my health. i still eat a piece or two or three of chocolate here and there. but cutting back 90% on dairy makes me feel much better too. and i have completely eliminated animal flesh (read eating animals by jonathan safran foer for a huge wake up call). thanks wendy for helping to support my health and new approach to being at a stable and healthy weight for me.

Ooh - I'd love this. I linked through on your "need some inspiration" post to the woman who had so much success eating as he suggests. I was, in fact, inspired. I'm on the list at the library for a book of his.

While I don't have any health problems, my weight keeps creeping up, even during stretches when I'm motivated to exercise. It's very depressing. So...
I'm working on eating less in general, particularly refined junk, and eating more veggies. My husband does most of the cooking, lucky for me, but I realized we eat a lot of protein-based meals. While delicious, they're not plant-based, so I'm trying to move us that way. This is a change for us, so no results yet. I'm still hoping!

For me and mine it's all about the green smoothies. We have begun starting almost every meal with a green smoothie. It keeps our fridge clean and tidy--using up any fruits or raw veggies we have in there. It also curbs our appetites and helps my two young sons get all the nutrients they need. It's an ongoing process, but I find that whenever I'm slipping or eating the wrong things I need to go back to my green shakes :*) Happy Holidays!

What a great contest! I'm currently doing Dr. Fuhrman's program and it is working wonderfully for me. I'd love to win the revised edition of the book! :)

Hi Wendy! I have been doing Dr. Fuhrman's program for the last 4 months and have lost 30 pounds so far. The last couple of weeks I have not stuck to the program very well but I plan on getting back on the wagon next week. I've enjoyed your blog and credit you to turning me on to Dr. Fuhrman. I feel great, have a lot more energy and look forward to exercising.

Hi Wendy,
I find that eating as close to Dr. Furhman's Eat to Live daily plan helps the most, by really keeping my breakfast and lunch the same (green smoothie for breakfast, and then salad w. brown rice cakes and hummus or cooked veg for lunch), a snack at 4pm, then a simple dinner (salad and soup or salad and cooked veg). I am also attending Overeater's Anonymous which has really provided support around emotional eating. I've learned that I really enjoy food but that there is a difference between obsessing and planning elaborate meals and learning how to eat simply. There is a time and place for fancy meals, but I am learning to take the drama out of food choices and meal preparation and let go of an unhealthy emotional attachment to food. I hope to win the new version of Eat to Live because I'd really like to see how Dr. Fuhrman his recommendations.

I have been working on absorbing as much vegan plant based little to no oil salt and no processed food as i can. I have 4 little ones and my whole family has been eating this way for 5 weeks now and I can only say wonderful things are happening for all of us. My children are reacting to food like my husband and I do with new found flavors and love of new things, even some veggies they didn't like in the past. and the moods and behaviors are starting to turn in such a great direction. We have so much energy and are starting a good workout at home dvd to start shaping up for the spring so we can all get out and have some fun this year! I am reading Eat to live and using his cookbooks and a few of the happy herbivores cookbooks. Its been hard at times and others went easy just can't imagine not eating like this ever now. husband and i have lost 15 lbs each too so hey it must be working, thanks for all your blog posts I love to hear about recipes and your journey Wendy!!
