Eat as much as you want, whenever you want. Welcome to the end of dieting.

We're fatter, sicker, and hungrier than ever, and the billion-dollar diet industry--with its trendy weight-loss protocols and eat-this-not-that ratios of fat, carbs, and protein--offers only temporary short-term solutions at the expense of our permanent long-term health. As a result, we're trapped in a cycle of food addiction, toxic hunger, and overeating.

In The End of Dieting , Joel Fuhrman, M.D., a board-certified doctor and the New York Times bestselling author of Eat to Live and The End of Diabetes , shows us how to break free from this vicious cycle once and for all. Dr. Fuhrman lays out in full all the dietary and nutritional advice necessary to eat our way to a healthier and happier life. At the center of his revolutionary plan is his trademark health formula: Health = Nutrients/Calories. Foods high in nutrient density, according to Dr. Fuhrman, are more satisfying than foods high in calories. They eliminate our cravings for fat, sweets, and carbs. The more nutrient-dense food we consume, the more our bodies can function as the self-healing machines they're designed to be. Weight drops, diseases reverse course and disappear, and our lives become longer and healthier.

The End of Dieting is the book we have been waiting for--a proven, effective, and sustainable approach to eating that lets us prevent and reverse disease, lose weight, and reclaim our right to excellent health.

I loved the book. Reading this in conjunction with other books like 'Eat to Live' 'Healthy Eating, Healthy World' and 'How not to Die' provides a ton of evidence based facts regarding the harmful health repercussions of eating meat, poultry and dairy. I like that he cites nearly every recommendation with many references and facts based on numerous studies. He goes into great detail how you can absolutely be provided with all the essential macro-nutrients (protein, fat and carbohydrates) with a whole foods, plant-based diet and how you will be provided with far more nutrition than if you were to eat meat, poultry and dairy while avoiding the high cholesterol, saturated fat and insulin spiking side effects that you get from eating like the typical American. Many will call it "extreme" and that is kind of the point. I hope that many more people will read this and be inspired to adopt the eating habits laid out in this book (at least in part, if nothing else) and count themselves in the minority of trim, healthy, environmentally conscious population. Loved it and would also highly recommend any of the previously mentioned books.

I only read this book because a friend wanted my opinion on it. I have a degree in biology, I am not a nutritionist. I thought his initial recommendations (eat "nutrient-dense" foods, i.e., lots of vegetables and whole grains, limit fatty, sugary, processed food) were not that different from what my doctor has suggested. Then he goes further to tell you how evil meat is (and he doesn't differentiate between red vs. white meat, fatty vs. lean), and how it will give you heart disease and cancer. Also dairy will too apparently. He also has a vendetta against olive oil and eggs and is not fond of fish either. So even though the title is "The End of Dieting" he is really advocating an extreme vegan diet. I find it hard to believe that most people can follow a vegan diet and get all the nutrients they need. Your body needs protein, glucose, fats, and calcium to fulfill functions like building muscle and bone, producing hormones, giving energy to cells etc. Any of those things in excess is going to lead to health problems. I think what he advocates is too extreme and I am not confident in all his dire predictions about what meat, dairy, eggs, and fish will do to you. I think it is healthier to eat meat occasionally. I disliked this book.
