I got CDs of Dr. Fohrman's book Eat to Live. I read the book long ago but the diet seemed impossible to me. Almost all vegetables and fruits. But the CD is very sensible. He actually says to eat what you regularly eat and add more vegetables and fruits. He says as your body gets healthier your tastes will crave dense nutrient foods (phytonutrients). Eventually you will eat less and less of The SAD diet we all grew up with. Standard American Diet.
I searched online and found an Eat to Live Diet . But it was under 1200 calories and had almost no meat or fats. The calorie count was impossibly low. I'd be starving. And Dr. Fuhrman doesn't suggest changing your diet suddenly anyway. The website was The Three Fat Chicks. I will look for more menus to be a better model for starting eating this way.
So I am adding vegetables and fruits to my present menus. I have been very tired for 5 days now and I sure hope this pulls me out of it!
