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.

Joe's Story

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.
