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.

Vaz's Story

After a lifetime of “yo-yo” dieting Vaz lost 151 pounds and no longer feels he is on his way to a heart attachk

 

I watched 3-Steps to Incredible Health on PBS and it started me on my way to lose 151 pounds. I had no actual target weight, just to shed the pounds naturally by eating properly. My main goal is to attend my 6-year-old daughter’s 50th birthday party in good health, at which time I will be 96 years old. I have blood tests to show how healthy I am now, but, unfortunately, I was too embarrassed by my obesity to have a blood test done before my weight loss. However, I'm sure I was on my way to a heart attack. I now have an LDL of 62 and an overall cholesterol level of 138 mg/dl.

My life's work is now to spread the message of nutritional eating. I am planning a lecture tour of senior centers and schools to spread the word and educate others on the health benefits of a healthy diet coupled with moderate exercise. I heard Dr. Fuhrman's message and it made sense to me, so I began to follow much of his advice. I try to view his talks often, and each time I learn something new and important. My second blood test was at the one year mark, after I started on this high-nutrient eating plan, and I had my vitamin D level tested as well. My vitamin D level was 40 ng/ml, without supplementation, and only supported by healthy food. I really would like to thank Dr. Fuhrman in person someday. I often call him “my mentor” and want him to know that he is one of the main factors in my life's change.

I have been a yo-yo dieter all my life since I was 12 years old; with ups, and downs and more periods of obesity than fitness. In fact, twenty three times I have lost over 50 pounds, at least three times approximately 100 pounds, but this time it is for real and is totally sustainable. Each and every day I look forward to creating more and more recipes. I want to share my foods with others in the hope that they will see the light. Thanks again. I will just add I actually have lost another 20 pounds since the last picture was taken. I am approximately 7 percent body fat at this point and, at the age of 53, I have unlimited energy.
