Eat to Live Program Dr Fuhrman Diet Recipes Eat to Live 6 week Program Menu Plans

So, you’re ready to start Dr. Fuhrman’s 6 week Eat to Live plan, or you’re curious about this whole nutritarian lifestyle thing!

Well, I’ve got you covered!

My goal is to fill this blog with 60 days of nutritarian menu plans!  I want to make getting healthy and achieving health excellence as easy. as. possible.

Welcome to Day 45 with lots of beautiful, healthy and fresh foods for you to feast your eyes on (and hopefully nosh on, in the very-near future)!




  • Large mixed greens salad (3 cups lettuce) topped with sliced yellow bell pepper, sliced cucumber, 1/4 Hass avocado, grape tomatoes, 1/2 cup garbanzo beans, red onions and 2 tbsp. raw sunflower seeds.  Topped with Walnut Balsamic Vinaigrette dressing (or you can sub it out for a flavored vinegar).
  • 2 mandarin oranges



Day 45 is a perfect menu to follow when you’re following Dr. Fuhrman’s Aggressive Weight Loss Plan at 100% compliance!

Are you just starting out on the 6 week Eat to Live plan?  Make sure to read my daily journal of everything I felt, thought, complained about and realized on my journey to become a nutritarian on Dr. Fuhrman’s plan!

    Hi, please send me daily free menus. Looking forward to getting started.

    • Kristen says:

      Hi Karen!

      If you look at this post, there is a section called “You’re Going to Get” and one of the bullet points is “a free printable shopping list.” The link to download your list is there in the aqua colored font “Day 50 Shopping List by My Momma Told Me.” Once you click that link you’ll see the list in .pdf format and be able to print it out!

      I just started providing shopping lists starting on Day 45. You will have to click on each day and download the lists from each.

      Hope this makes it more clear! Please let me know if you have any questions!

      Let’s get started!

  • Susan says:

    How has this plan worked with your family? My husband is a meat and potato person.

    • Kristen says:

      Hi Susan!

      I have two kiddos (4 and 7) and they do not eat this way. As they get older I have incorporated more ETL dishes into their rotation. My hubby has gotten much better through the years and will eat about 75% on plan with me, and usually will have some turkey or tuna for his lunch. He does not monitor his salt intake.

      I did this all by myself for the first 6 weeks and I lost over 21 pounds–I promise you it can be done even if you have to go solo! My hubby tarted to want to eat with me when he saw how much weight I was losing! So, you start as the example and your family can follow!

      Hi Debby,

      So the menu is listed in this post I just don’t have a printable shopping list for this particular day–the printable lists start at day 49!

  • Tammy says:

    Hey Kristen! I am on the second day of this program and OMG!! It is so hard to make anything taste good without salt! I am using Mrs. Dash seasonings and that is helping. My question is I have never tried tofu or cooked with and I have no idea what to expect? Can you give me some pointers on preparation? Thanks!!

    • Kristen says:

      Hi Tammy!

      YAY!! Huge congratulations to you for beginning your nutritarian journey!

      I completely understand how you are feeling (if you haven’t already, you can check out my 6 week journal here).

      I have two favorite tofu recipes that I think will help you: Tofu Eggs and Crispy Baked Tofu Fingers.

      I’m wishing you the absolute best on your 6 weeks–you can do this!! You are going to feel so amazing when you’re done! Please reach out to me during the process!

      xo, Kristen

  • Jessi says:

    Hi. I am planning on starting this Oct 1. Any encouragement would be appreciated. I watched what the health and have and have read the ETL book. I will continue reading on your page. The hardest thing for me is I travel a lot. I hope the first couple of weeks I won’t be so I can get a good start.
    I need to lose about 25 lbs but want to stay healthy as my grandpa and both parents have had heart attacks.

    • Kristen | Hello Nutritarian says:

      So wonderful to meet you Jessi!

      Thank you so much for reaching out and sharing some of your story too!

      I responded to your last comment also asking which plan you’re going to follow.

      You can absolutely still do this plan, even while traveling!

      Do you travel by car or plane? That will make a difference in what you can prep ahead!

      I’m so excited for you to start your journey and I am here–make sure to let me know about those questions so I can give you some more detailed help!
