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.

Scott's Story

Cancer, obesity and other life-threatening medical issues plagued Scott until he fasted and adopted the Nutritarian diet plan; now he lost 85 pounds and his medical problems are gone.  

I was raised in a Scottish family that only knew one way to eat; meat, bread, dairy and potatoes, and dessert was a must after every meal. I was very fit and active all through school. Fast forward to my mid- thirties. I spent most of time sitting at a desk, still eating whatever and whenever I felt the need, which was all the time.

Eventually, I was diagnosed with many serious health conditions including: obesity -  over 250 pounds; severe Achilles tendonitis - could not walk very far, running was out of the question;  80 percent vision loss in my left eye - woke up on day and was almost completely blind in my left eye (renal occlusion); cardiovascular disease - was preparing to have by-pass surgery; cancer (stage 4 melanoma) - four surgeries  and had several lymph nodes removed from the left side of my body. Prognosis after surgery was only 25 percent chance of living the next 5 years or less; allergic to sun - even with sun block SPF 110 my skin would still become severely burned; constant watering in both eyes; many other unknown aches and pains throughout my body; trouble sleeping.

Doctors told me I would have to live with these conditions for the rest of my life, taking medications and attending numerous weekly and monthly follow-up appointments. I was a young man and wanted my life back. Some unknown thing was taking my life away from me. At the time I had no idea it was all caused from the standard processed Canadian foods I was eating. Not once through all the appointments, follow ups, pain, surgery's, illness and disease did a doctor put me on a proper diet, or even recommend this path.

I knew the medical community could not help me. I felt alone and scared. I thought I was going to die. I then turned to many different diets, cleanses, and fasts with minimal results. I found Dr. Fuhrman online, and his Nutritarian health approach. I had huge results from eating the Nutritarian way within the first few weeks, but, when I combined this with fasting after reading Dr. Fuhrman's book on Fasting, I was amazed. After my first 14 -day water fast I continued to be a Nutritarian and have never looked back. I water fast once every three or so months now. WOW, I thought I had to eat meat or dairy or I would die, now I know the truth about food thanks to Dr Fuhrman!

Within months this new way of life REVERSED EVERY SINGLE HEALTH CONDITION I HAD. My weight started to melt off right away. In one year, I went from 250 plus down to 165 and have remained at this weight for many years now. Severe Achilles tendonitis - this started to get better right away. I started walking more and eventually running with zero pain during or after. All the vision loss has come back; my eye doctors were baffled. I no longer go to the eye doctors.  Cardiovascular disease - on day 7 of my first true water fast I had another ultra sound, and it came back 100 percent clear of any blockages, the doctor and radiologists were both skeptical but blown away, I have never gone back to them.

Cancer (stage 4 Melanoma) - I know for sure my cancer is completely gone now, and I know cancer cannot survive in a 100 percent plant-based Nutritarians body. I left the cancer treatment program over five years ago. According to them I should have been dead by now, and I am sure that I would be if I kept up with their treatment recommendations. I will never go back to that or any other cancer treatment center again.

Allergic to the Sun - this reversed within a few months. I love the sun now and get as much as I can, no more sunblock required, I do not burn anymore, all my skin cells are packed full of huge amounts of very protective and health promoting nutrients, now they can protect themselves. Constant watering eyes - this went away right away, I still get watery eyes the odd time in the winter on very cold days. Many other unknown aches and pains throughout my body - these all went away within months, all gone, not one ache or pain now. Trouble sleeping - this got better within the first couple months, sleep like a baby every night now. And after a few weeks my blood pressure came right down.

I went through from almost being dead to full health and endless years of longevity ahead of me. I will never turn back to the SAD diet or the medical community again. Don't get me wrong, doctor's and some medications do have very important roles to play when it comes to acute emergency types of conditions and broken bones etc., but we can completely prevent the need to go to the doctor's office and hospital for all the other degenerative types of disorders, illnesses and diseases, by simply making better choices on what we put in our mouths.

My soul purpose and passion in life is to help others regain their health and get their lives back like I did. I will keep spreading the message of the truth about our food through a Nutritarian way of life until it's my time to leave this earth.
