Stacy lost 25 pounds and is free of chronic back pain enabling her to finally sleep in the same bed with her husband
I had resigned myself to being overweight for the rest of my life and never being able to sleep in my bed again with my husband of twenty nine years. I had not been able to sleep in my bed for over ten years due to chronic back pain. I had tried different beds and pillows galore, spent literally thousands of dollars trying to be able to sleep in the same room with my husband. I ended up sleeping on a $600 loveseat recliner, how ironic.
During the night my lungs would produce mucous and I would hear snap, crackle, pops every time I would exhale, especially in the morning (and no, it wasn't Rice Krispies). When I would get up from a chair after sitting awhile it would take a number of steps before my joints would move freely. I would get headaches if I didn't have chocolate. I always craved sweets and couldn't control my hunger.
Within a few weeks after following the Nutritarian program I noticed that I didn't get sore from sitting and my joints moved freely from the get go. The "snap, crackle, and pops" have greatly diminished. I lost 25 pounds effortlessly, and feeling so great with all this energy I have that I am able to exercise regularly. But the best news of all is that I have now been able to sleep in my bedroom with my husband in my bed after a decade of sleeping separately! I can't tell you what that means to me. I am forever grateful! I am telling everyone about how great I feel with the Nutritarian way of life. I finally feel like I am living and in control of my life. Thank you Dr. Fuhrman.
