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.
After being morbidily obese and diabetic, Bill is no longer diabetic, lost 95 pounds and is on his way to his goal weight
My doctor called to tell me he was very concerned about my overall health and that if I didn’t do something soon about it, I would most likely not live past ten years. He wanted me to begin insulin injections. I have a strong dislike for needles and said I would not give myself injections. He asked if I would consider a plant- based diet and suggested Dr Fuhrman's plan. I agreed.
Having just lost my brother- in -law who had been told basically the same thing about changing his habits ten years prior, was my cross road. My wife and I began a Nutritarian diet together. The first day we said, “we made it through breakfast, then lunch and then dinner.” It is a complete life change, since I am a BBQ chef. We found it surprisingly easy to adapt, since the meal plans and recipes were all so accessible.
How has it changed my life? Quite honestly, in every way. I have lost a great deal of weight, 95 pounds in a very short time and become healthier than I have been in at least twelve years. My mobility has improved a great deal. My energy level has increased. My clarity of thought is amazing. My skin began to clear of the breakouts and rashes I had. I truly enjoy working out in the yard with my wife now. We are able to go more places in public without some of the restrictions my weight had put on me.
I can sit in chairs with arms and walk into stores. I had literally observed life from the car in parking lots while my family went on excursions or a simple task like shopping. I quit taking medications by doctor’s orders. Reason for change, no longer diabetic.
We are still on the journey, still losing with a target weight of 265 pounds.
