I think this is definitely worth a look. One of my coaching clients, Adam, has been on this diet and has lost about 50 pounds and his energy level is out the roof. I have been eating “better” for about 3 years now and have lost 30 pounds, blood pressure has improved immensely and energy like Adam’s is out the roof. However, my approach really has not been nutrition focused as much as it has been about cutting out the alcohol, sugar and useless carbs. Yes, that does improve your nutrition but the “Eat for Life” approach is far beyond a lose weight diet. I clipped some info from the site below. Visit it yourself at www.drfuhrman.com.

“Dr. Fuhrman established a unique practice that specializes in treating a variety of medical problems with lifestyle changes and nutrition. The doctors at Dr. Fuhrman's Center for Nutritional Medicine have experience with the variety and complexity of problems that can present in a family medicine office. They also have experience and have demonstrated success helping patients achieve overall health and wellness rather than merely trying to manage the symptoms of their diseases.
Dr. Jay Benson, D.O., is the patient care director at Dr. Fuhrman's Center. He has developed a core competency in the early detection and treatment of cardiovascular diseases via state-of-the-art, noninvasive, painless testing methods that are free of radiation and more accurate than angiograms and other traditional tests at predicting future heart attack or stroke. The earlier cardiovascular disease can be detected, the easier it can be reversed. The doctors at Dr. Fuhrman's Center for Nutritional Medicine not only utilize an effective nutritional protocol on patients with cardiovascular disease but they document its effectiveness using these same testing methods to track improvements over time.
In addition to treating cardiovascular disease, thousands of patients treated at the Center have made remarkable recoveries from other chronic diseases, including:
• Autoimmune Disease
• Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Patients with diabetes that come to the Center are able to reduce their use of medication or even eliminate their dependence on them completely. Patients with high blood pressure are able to see their blood pressure readings normalize typically over just a few weeks’ time. Most patients notice a dramatic change in their cholesterol levels after having a consult and following the dietary protocol. Unique treatment protocols for specific diseases, which stem from the many years of research, are prescribed and are based on the relationship between food and disease. By taking an evidence-based approach to the treatment of disease and applying the years of research to focused lifestyle changes, patients are able to recover from diseases that had been difficult to treat beforehand.”
