 After numerous failed fertility treatments Jill lost 85 pounds and is thrilled to be pregnant


“Eight and half years ago I experienced a miscarriage that knocked me off my feet.  I turned to food for comfort and became an obsessive emotional eater. The weight piled on year after year.  My husband and I continued trying to get pregnant. I was diagnosed with polycystic ovarian syndrome and placed on several medications to regulate my hormones and help me get pregnant.  I spent eight years in and out of a infertility clinic, running tests and increasing medications.

I finally came to the end of my rope and knew it was time to make major changes in my lifestyle.  A friend had given me the Eat To Live several years ago. Now, at last, I was ready to read it and to change.  I started reading one afternoon and that evening was already making changes in my food choices.  The changes continued the more I read and the more I educated myself on food, nutrition and health. 

I lost 85 pounds and am thrilled to now be three months pregnant with a healthy baby!  My doctor is so excited for me, and fully supports my decision to live this healthy lifestyle.  I am continuing to Eat To Live and have no desire to change.  I can't wait to teach my child how to Eat To live. Thank you Dr. Fuhrman, thank you times a million.
