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.

Dave's Story

Thanks to his healthy diet Dave's chances of a repeat heart attack are close to zero according to his cardiologist  

I changed to a Nutritarian diet in May 2014 after suffering a major heart attack.  I also began exercising regularly. I lost 22 pounds and have 10 to15 more to go to reach my ideal weight.  But already, my cardiologist, after studying my extensive lab profile, said, “statistically your chance for a repeat heart attack is as close to zero as I can imagine, probably within the first percentile."  

Also, I no longer have migraines. I no longer have gastric reflux or constipation. I no longer have spontaneous corneal abrasions which I had at least once per week, despite taking medication. Now it’s been several months since the last one, and I’m gradually reducing the medication, down to just one fourth of what it once was.  My doctor doesn't know how to make the connection other than to say, “when you maximize your health your body can more effectively fix itself, all parts of itself.”  

My wife and I have discovered many new flavors and tastes that we never before experienced.  Following the Nutritarian program has not been as challenging as we first expected, though it does take a bit longer to prepare meals.  But we happily make that sacrifice for the unlimited benefits.
