Is the Fuhrman website worth the cost? In my opinion, if you have Eat To Live, and are meeting you health goals, no need at all. In my opinion, if you are still struggling to meet your health goals, the website is a fabulous resource. You can search old questions and answers and get lots of very valuable information. If you wish, you may even ask me questions, and I will answer to the best of my ability, and may even be helpful.
For myself, I am compelled to become a Fuhrman Health Coach, when I retire. I'm a lost cause, a goner. I'll buy every Fuhrman book, be on the website, etc, for ever. BTW, a new Fuhrman bood "Super Immunity" is coming out at the end of the is month. You can order advanced copies through amazon or barnesandnoble.
For me to meet my health goals, (to show no atherosclerosis in an IMT test - a carotid artery ultrasound), with my heredity, I ahave to follow all the recommendations.
In the spirit of full discloaure, I do have sugar binges about once a month, but I'll have to consider some way to be a bit more moderate about it. I don't crave to break the diet, but a church pot-luck dinner is a bad situation, after the first bite of desert.
I'm considering Fuhman's "Super Immunity" book. I bought the revised E2L this year, but was disappointed that it really had not changed that much from the previous edition. I hope the immunity book will add more value for readers of his previous work.
I've learned a bunch reading old posts on this board. I especially enjoy science-based posts with citations and links. It is nice to see controversial issues discussed in a civil manner, like the merits of including nuts in the diet.
I've seen Novick's forums on McDougall's site mentioned in this board. Another valuable resource (IMHO) is http://www.happyhealthylonglife.com/ The author is a medical librarian at the Cleveland Clinic and an Esselstyn fan. She is very evidence-based in her postings and cites authoritative resources. Good recipes, too!
Why "raboof"? My usual choices were taken. Inverting the polite form of FUBAR makes a nym that is easy to remember. Like you, my diet is occasionally FUBAR too...
