Video: Texas doctor (and diet book author) chooses Eat to Live to help his patients lose weight

A news station recently followed the story of family practice physician Dr. Douglas Cluff of Irving, Texas, who places a copy of my book Eat to Live in every exam room. Dr. Cluff published his own book on healthy eating and weight loss in 2007, but now advises patients that need to lose weight to follow the Eat to Live program.  I have never heard of this doctor before and do not know him, but I applaud him. He obviously is a warm and caring individual and very special physician. I am grateful for his support and enthusiasm to do the best for his patients, and proud of him and other very dedicated family physicians, many who set a high bar for ethics and compassion.

Dr. Cluff was my primary physician and diagnosed me with diabetes 10 years ago. I'm not surprised to see him linked with ETL. He tried to get me to track my food, etc. to help with weight loss but I was in denial for years. Sad it took me so long to find the best path to health and hopefully reversing my diagnosis. All the best to both docs...and hope more follow his example.

Awesome! A doctor who is more interested in his patients' health than his own ego! Love it!

I LOVE Dr. Cluff! How refreshing that he does not have to feel he knows it all. He is a great example for us all.

good for him. More doctors should contact Dr. Fuhrman to learn how to cure their patients.

That's about the best endorsement you can get.

Awesome that this excellent doctor would look beyond his own ego (and pocketbook) to do the right, ethical thing for his patients. Major kudos to Dr. Cluff!
