Eat to Live!!!

This is the book that I live by!  It has changed my life, and changed my eating habits.  I believe in everything that he says.  It has given me so much energy.  I have had no cravings what so ever.  I am just enjoying all of the glorious food that Heavenly Father made for us… in it’s natural state.  To make it simple, here are the “rules” for this eating plan.  Dr. Fuhrman says to give it 6 weeks, and then add in lean meats and 1 tablespoon of olive oil about 3 times a week after the 6 weeks are up.
