Julia S. lost 105 pounds after having three heart attacks within three months and five angioplasties in a three-year period; believes without Dr.Fuhrman's program she would not be alive
After three heart attacks within three months of each other and five angioplasties in a three-year period, I was still very ill. I almost died soon after the last angioplasty and had internal bleeding that was difficult to stop. The torture of all my medical problems made me think I would be better off if I had died. I was left with unstable angina, meaning I had chest pain from my bad heart almost constantly. I weighed 225 pounds and I could not walk one block. I was on ten medications and was a cardiac cripple at the age of 60.
Luckily, I learned about Dr. Fuhrman and read his book Eat to Live. Within three months of following the plan, my chest pain was gone and I was walking again. From not being able to walk one block, I was able to walk two miles with no problems. Within seven months of eating Dr. Fuhrman's high-nutrient density eating style, I weighed 135 pounds. I just wanted to be healthier and live again, but in doing so I lost 90 pounds without even trying to lose weight.
When I think back to how sick I was, it's frightening. In addition to my aforementioned ailments, I suffered from daily migraines and had bleeding ulcers from all the medications I was taking. Today, I weigh 120 pounds, walk three miles a day, go to yoga classes and enjoy life immensely. I know I would not be alive today if not for Dr. Fuhrman's plan.
