Housemate is my 87 year old father, Dave. He is sharp, internet savvy and still looking for ways to improve his life! What a guy. So he bumped into "Eat to Live" a diet for life book by Joel Fuhrman, M.D., endorsed by Dr. Oz, and it is leading us down a new diet path.
In working with Dave and diet, we've 1) jettisoned red meat, poultry and pork, 2) put our toe into veganism --- not a complete switch but, we dialed back the cheese. We were still doing some cheese, tuna, mayo, half and half, salad dressing, etc.
So now, Dave is ready to give Fuhrman's diet a whirl. I'm 70 pages into the book --- sounds really good and for me at my already restricted diet, the changes won't be too dramatic. I'm still reading and making a shopping list for the next three days. Will see how it all pans out - I'm feeling positive.
