Scott 's doctor predicted death, he decided to live and lost 331 pounds
“I was 38 years old and was not sure if I would live to see 40. I weighed 563 pounds and wore size XXXXXXXXXXL pants and could not tie my shoes. I only could walk nine steps at a time. Breathing was sometimes difficult. A doctor said I would be dead in six months without stomach reduction surgery and heavy medication. I turned down his advice.
Instead I decided to change my approach to eating by following Dr. Fuhrman’s high nutrient meal plan. I recognizied I had a dire health situation and the need for aggressive weight loss with optimal therapeutic effects. So I jumped right into Dr. Fuhrman’s plan for nutritional excellence. I knew the food provided all the nutrients essential for good health.
Now I never tire of the way I eat as it was designed to include everything a human craves. There are things that are hot, cold, salty, creamy, chewy, spicy, savory, and crisp. I emphasize to everyone that this meal plan is not a diet. In fact, don’t even say that word around me. After years of trying fad diets to lose weight, the "D" word no longer exists in my vocabulary. It is not about a goal weight. I’m just doing what’s healthy for my body, and the results follow. I now weigh 170 pounds and enjoy biking 10 to 30 miles daily regardless of the weather.”
