At 47 years old, Joe was obese, had health problems, lacked energy; in just nine months, he lost 97 pounds shocking his doctor with his new good health
My journey to health began in February 2015. I was 47 years old and weighed 283 pounds. I had low energy which was a burden especially since I have a high stress job. I had plantar fasciitis and stomach cramping that plagued me weekly since college. During the past years I saw multiple doctors, but still could not alleviate the stomach issues with either over the counter or prescription drugs.
My weight had gotten to a point that even my "big clothes" were becoming uncomfortable. I was in the largest sizes offered in the department stores and was on my way to becoming a shopper at the "big" stores. I knew I wasn't eating healthily and knew very little about proper nutrition. But it was time to do something.
Through a great stroke of luck, a good friend of mine discovered Dr. Fuhrman a month earlier and had already begun his health quest. His persistence for me to start, coupled with a number on the scale that shocked me, and a comment from my mother that said it looked like I had a beer belly, and she knew that I didn't drink beer, drove me to jump on board. I read The End of Dieting, watched Dr. Fuhrman's videos, and with the help of my friend, I began my new life following the Nutritarian diet style.
I am elated to say that to date I have lost 97 pounds and the plantar fasciitis as well as the stomach cramps are gone. My cholesterol went from 235 to 155 in three months. I have not had it tested again, but I am sure its way lower now. My doctor was shocked. I love this lifestyle and often compare food choices with my friend and others following the Nutritarian diet plan. I have a great wife and two teenage children and I now can look forward to a long active, disease free live with my beautiful family and friends.
