Many individuals who follow the Nutritarian diet write to Dr. Fuhrman about their success. Keep in mind that results vary from person to person. As always, consult your physician if you have a medical history and/or condition that may warrant individual recommendations.

Mike's Story

Mike no longer has his frequent bouts of illness that required antibiotics and is healthier than ever  

Since an early age, like most Americans, the bulk of my diet was comprised of processed foods and animal products.  In elementary school I was chubby and was picked on for being fat.  I was frequently sick. I suffered with asthmatic bronchitis, which would get particularly bad during the winter months.  I always had a stuffy nose, which led to frequent sinus infections for which I took antibiotics. The consistent use of antibiotics lasted well into my thirties.

By the time I graduated high school I was six feet tall and weighed 225 pounds.  During college I became more active with sports and lost a decent amount of weight.  Over the next twenty or so years my weight fluctuated between 165 pounds and 200 pounds, typically hovering around 175 pounds which I considered my ideal weight.

One day at a Vitamix demonstration booth, I asked the demonstrator how I could learn to make green smoothies like the ones she had made. She directed me to Dr. Fuhrman’s website.  Later that same day I had occasion to watch the documentary Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead and Dr. Fuhrman appeared on the screen.  I wondered, where have I been and why haven’t I heard of Dr. Fuhrman before? I immediately went online and ordered Eat For Health.  Within days I read the book and it made a lot of sense to me.  I knew it was real and not just another fad diet.  I decided that becoming Nutritarian was something me and my family had to do because I wanted better health for all of us.

Although I didn’t think I needed to lose weight, I lost 20 pounds in the first two and a half months, with my weight stabilizing at 150 pounds.  The last time I weighed that I was in middle school and was six inches shorter.  The most amazing part for me is that I never felt like I was starving myself.  To the contrary, I marvel at eating generous portions of food and enjoying it more than ever.  Much more important, I am healthier now.  In the over eighteen months since living the Nutritarian lifestyle, I haven’t had a single sick day.  Simply stated, I feel great!

Following the Nutritarian diet style has improved my health dramatically. I am now full of energy.  I enjoy more from life which has empowered me to, in turn, help others.  My wife and children are benefiting with their own weight loss and improved health as well, and this lifestyle is bringing us closer together as a family.  I’ve even helped a friend avoid heart surgery, who is doing incredibly well now. 

By improving my health and the health of others around me, I have developed a greater sense of meaning, purpose, and well-being in my own life. So I advise others, don’t wait until your health suffers before taking better care of yourself.  Our leading causes of death are primarily the result of the foods we eat.  Regardless of your health condition, start taking care of yourself now.

Read, listen to, or watch Dr. Fuhrman at least five minutes a day.  The more you understand, the more conviction you’ll have for making good nutritional decisions and the more likely you’ll succeed.
