 After many frustrating years trying to lose weight, Felicia lost a life-altering 206 pounds


“I struggled with my weight for numerous years and tried various diets, but did not have the incentive to stick to any diet plan.  Then, one day, I heard Dr. Fuhrman on PBS talk about how you can use healthy food as medicine.  It was refreshing to hear a doctor talk about eating our way back to health instead of using medicine to treat chronic illnesses.  I purchased and read his Eat To Live book and was completely on board. 

I started in August 2011 and have now lost 206 pounds and wear a size 4!  I feel so much better and have a lot of energy. My back doesn't hurt and I no longer have Vertigo episodes.  I have no intention of ever going back. My daughter also joined me in eating healthy, and I am trying to encourage others to do the same.”
