Carrie lost 22 pounds, is free of GERD and the medication she took for it.
I'm a nurse, I was on break in the hospital in Feb. 2015. The TV was on and I caught the last 30 minutes of Dr. Fuhrman's 3 Steps to Incredible Health. I changed my diet that day. I had GERD since I turned 50 years old, had a colonoscopy, was prescribed, Nexium and from that time on, I could not go without taking medicine. (The day I changed my diet, I also changed my mother's diet, she was able to stop all blood pressure medicines).
I had a stroke at age 55. When I stopped smoking I immediately started blowing up to 160 pounds. I know it doesn't sound like much, but I weighed 123-125 pounds all my adult life, even after having five children. 160 was too much for me, as a nurse--walking and standing is my life. My feet and back hurt badly.
By August 21, 2015, I noticed my clothes were a little looser. I walk 12 hours 3-4 days a week. I got on the scale, I was 149 pounds. My weight had melted off! By April 2016, I was down to 145. WOW, I couldn't believe it. This past physical, April 2018 I'm 138 pounds and at a plateau. I'm back in small scrubs, that I couldn't get my leg in two years ago. I no longer have heartburn, only occasionally, if I eat tomato- based foods late in the day. Also, diabetes is a family disease, and for me so far so good.
I listen to people's diet stories, I laugh, I Tell them about G-BOMBS "google it", I say. Nurses are the worst diet offenders and hospitals have more “poison” than medicines. I had a charge nurse that would come to work, inject himself with insulin, then proceed to eat donuts! After a while, he started listening to me when I asked him why was he killing himself. He finally lost weight, no longer injects insulin and looks so good now, it's hard to believe he's the same guy.
I am appalled at the diets and weights that I encounter every day. So, those that listen get the full spiel, those that make excuses, I make sure they see how I look at 65 years old. I'm amazed and very thankful that I caught Dr. Fuhrman that day, People always ask about the cost when you say diet, and how do I remember. It's simple, when I make my plate I make sure to have G-BOMBS - Greens, Beans, Onions, maybe Mushrooms, Berries and seeds. It's so simple, it doesn't take a rocket scientist or even a piece of paper! And I no longer say diet, it's a lifestyle!
