Abby chooses to never weight herself; .going from size 12 to size 4 says it all  

On August 25th 2015, the morning after my 37th birthday, I woke up and decided to transform my life. I finally embraced the fact that I was the only one who could make my weight loss dreams come true. I believed in my heart that I could do it, and I knew that by giving 100 percent of my efforts to living a Nutritarian lifestyle, my dream would quickly become my reality.

Sixteen years ago, at the age of 21, my weight ballooned to over 215 pounds. Over the next decade, I would slowly loss weight through subtle modifications in diet and exercise bringing my weight down to 168 pounds.

In 2009, I found Eat To Live. Though I implemented a few of its teachings, I continued to engage in my habitual food obsessed, food addicted behaviors. I would overeat daily, fluctuating between restriction and gluttony. I felt out of control of my eating and miserable because as a personal fitness trainer, I failed to effectively mentor my clients through the pain and suffering of food addiction.

I myself was a food addict, and it wasn't until I watched Dr. Fuhrman's videos that I knew my only hope of being free of my addiction was abstinence. Dr. Fuhrman and his staff taught me that if I continued to straddle healthy eating with toxic eating, I would continue my war with toxic food cravings and never be free to truly enjoy healthful food and to experience true hunger. Completely eliminating toxic food from my diet was the game changer.

After only three days of eating 100 percent Nutritarian, I felt my cravings beginning to subside and my motivation build. I began enjoying my food like I had never done before. Suddenly I viewed eating as an intellectual choice, not an emotional one. And as the weeks passed, and my excess weight fell away, I felt my transformation take hold.

In just five months, I have gone from a size 12 to a size 4, and the arthritis in my feet that plagued me for years has completely gone. I feel like I'm my own fairy godmother who was able to grant my biggest wish;  to become fit and trim!

My gratitude to Dr. Fuhrman and his staff is immeasurable. They have ignited within me a strength I never knew existed. Through knowledge I am achieving my goals, and with their support and guidance, I am creating the body I always dreamed of.
Thank you.
