    Indeed Eat to Live (ETL) is not a diet but a lifestyle , a way of eating very clean.
I tried it and I think it makes a lot of sense. I lost some weight but did find that living according to those guidelines is too hard for me personally (as a recovering binge eater). I still use a lot of the suggestions though and doing ETL made me so much more aware of the importance of eating vegetables.

There is an active team for Eat to Live here at Sparkpeople, it's very worth while to join it, you will get lots of good tips and insights.

    I bought the book and started on it the day after Christmas 2012. I've only lost 8.5 lbs, but for me that's major since I've had a really hard time losing with a thyroid problem and being pre-menopausal. Also, I'm getting all the fruits and veggies I've needed for awhile and wasn't getting. Since the diet has such big salads, you don't have to drink but 3-8 oz. glasses of water a day. Dr. Fuhrman says you get a lot of water in salads and fruits. My thyroid medicine has been cut back and it helps with your joints and other ailments you may have. If you like oatmeal, fruits, beans, salads and any veggie (excluding potatoes) you'll like this diet. And actually he says it's not a diet, but a way of eating. I also fine when it comes to eating out. I just get a big salad and order fish or chicken with seasonal veggies. It's not going to hurt to have a little lean meat occasionally, just not all the time. I really think this Dr. is onto something.

    I am in my second week of the ETL program - Day 12. I can't believe how easy it has been and how satisfying. Today I am feeling better than I can remember feeling in a long time. I highly recommend the program. I have no food cravings at all.

    I haven't tried it yet, but I'm reading the book right now and learning about it. Have you started it? If not, I'd totally start it at the same time as you.

    Eat to live is a diet you go on for 6 weeks and it's all plant based food. You eat allot of vegetables and fruit on this diet. I watched it on youtube and there was a Muslimah on there who lost 50 lbs. in 26-27 weeks cant remember which one. She stayed on the diet Mon-Thurs. and than on Fri-Sun. she had cheat days. I thought, I was starting the diet this Sunday but turns out I was eating the wrong foods. I ordered the book and plan on starting it but you can get the book in the store but for some reason I thought it'll be cheaper to order on line. NOT
