Ken's Story

Ken lost 90 pounds and loves buying size 34 pants after wearing size 44  

On a Hawaii family vacation I was faced with the realization of the weight I had put on over the years. Having to buy 44 inch waist shorts and 3XL shirts was no fun.   After the vacation I did not spring to action; instead I wallowed in some depressive self-hate. A friend complimented me at a gathering asking if I had lost weight, I rudely snapped back that I had just bought bigger clothes; that morning I had weighed in at 292. The behavior was not me, I did not want to be the guy afraid to go to the beach or be a jerk to people because of my own self-loathing.

I was first exposed to Dr. Fuhrman when I watched Fat Sick & Nearly Dead. I decided to read his book and also reinforce it with the audio book. Eat To Live made sense so I set out to start. It has been just over nine months and I have continued to make steady consistent progress. Over 90 pounds down and the weight is still falling off without much effort, just abiding to the Nutritarian lifestyle. I love buying 34 inch pants and wearing large size shirts, looking forward to likely sizing down again.

I have told many people (family, friends, and perfect strangers) about my success, and hope I have inspired some to give it a try. I still feel like I have a bit yet to go as the weight is still falling, but am very happy with the way I have actively changed my body and life with Dr. Fuhrman and Eat To Live. Thank you!
