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.

Max's Story


Max suffered severe pain as a result of medication side-effects; now strictly adhering to the Nutrtarian diet his pain and depression are gone  

In 2006, I read Dr. Fuhrman’s book Fasting and Eating for Health and began practicing the concepts in the book for many years.. I became even more compliant with the Nutritarian diet plan in 2014 when I was given the wrong medication, Levaquin. It sent me on a downward spiral with side effects I never dreamed imaginable; anal bleeding, stomach bleeding, nerve damage and stinging irritation up and my down arms and legs and night sweats. I was diagnosed as having chronic gastritis. I also got a hiatal hernia given during a stomach scope.

For the next 6 months, I basically passed out from pain. I followed a strict diet where I ruled out all food allergies. Then I discovered cabbage juice worked on my system better than anything else. I drank that for about 1.5 years 5-7 days per week. I reversed what I thought was all the side effects. Then in 2016, my entire skeleton practically felt like it disintegrated. I was plagued with another round of severe pains in hips, knees, shoulders, ribs, elbows. It hurt to breathe with a stabbing pain in my ribs. The doctor said my organs are fine, my resting heart rate was 46 in a MRI scan, and my vitals were great, but no mention that this could be the Levaquin side effects which clearly states soft tissue and cartilage tendon damage.

I began to be stricter on the Nutritarian diet in January 2018. Then to my surprise, not only did I have a strong recovery, I am active as I was during my all American collegiate track and field years. I now train with a former navy seal 5-6 days a week and I can hang. I got my right eye sight back; my right ear hearing came back. I just got slammed hard on a basketball full court two days ago and sprained my knee, two days later after Icing, elevating, compressing, I'm 70 percent recovered, and I was able to do 120 air squats and 60 lunges on the strained knee safely without losing valuable exercise conditioning.  Unbelievable recovery rate.

 As I keep ruling out all added salt, sugar, oil, and processed food, and strictly consume G-BOMBS, mostly raw and uncooked, my immunity seems to get ever stronger. The DHA /EPA I owe a miracle debt of thanks. I seem to have lost my depression, addictions, negative thinking.

I am not perfect, but no longer experience the volume of thoughts that constitute “addiction.” I consider myself well on the way recovering from food/sugar/chocolate addict amongst other things. I think that when others adopt the Nutritarian diet that not only will there be a transition in the nature and face of the food industry, but that prosperity in health will reach unprecedented levels.
