Ronnie V. has lost 140 pounds in 7 months!
*Ronnie weighed more, but 300 lbs was his scale's limit.
* He now wears a size smaller in pants (30) than he did in high school (31)!
Since starting Eat To Live, my progress is as follows: I've lost 120 pounds., down to 180 pounds (remember I pegged the scales at about 300 pounds), just 10 pounds away from my goal weight of 170. My most recent lipid panel had my cholestrol at 101,LDS 51 HDL-34, trig 91.I am motivated to reach my goal weight of 170 pounds. The last time I weighed 170 pounds, I was 24 years old and in terrific shape.
I start each day (from day one of following the plan) with my morning smoothie. This recipe serves two people: 1apple, 1 cup pomegranate juice, 1 1/2 cups red grapes, 2 tablespoons flax meal, 5 oz. baby spinach, 2 cups frozen blueberries, and 2 cups frozen strawberries blended in my Vitamix.
It has not been a bed of roses (you can track some of my trials and successes in the "Ask the Doctor" forum under 'Saturated fat good for you'. There has been some highs and lows but all I can tell you is that my worse day now as a follower of Eat To Live is better than my best day then.
We really don't know what a treasure we have in Dr. Fuhrman. To have a doctor of his caliber at our fingertips via "Ask the Doctor" is simply incredible and is by far, my most single asset in my battle against heart disease. I have been an example to others around me including my brother and sister (both of whom have heart disease) and are now on the journey with me. My brother has lost 23 pounds and my sister has lost 47 pounds. Their progress and weight loss has been fantastic, as they too understand the benefits of being an Eat To Live follower. My son has also started the program with his whole family. He has lost 25 pounds and a shirt size (from 3x to 2x) and from a 50 to a 46 waist in three weeks.
Everyone who sees me is in awe of what Eat To Live has done for me, my wife and my family. I finally had to get a new drivers license because clerks asking for my ID at the stores did not believe it was really me. People are amazed at the energy I have and how focused I've become on my health and the health of others. I'm going to start an Eat To Live class and support group at my church to strengthen and support others.
If you are overweight, have poor health, chronic heart disease, diabetes - DON'T WAIT! Start your new life today!!!! Don't accept failures voice anymore. Eat To Live works, the web site works, and the Ask the Doctor forum works. The only thing waiting is your voice of victory over the health problem that brought you to this decision. YOU CAN DO IT!!!!!!!
