Fearing he would die young Manuel lost an amazing 150 pounds and his teenage son lost 40 pounds; it has been a life changing journey for his family
I was 43 years- old and weighed 455 pounds. I started the Nutritarian diet because I was worried about my health and weight and began to fear that I could die from a heart attack at any moment when I found out heart disease is the number one killer in our country. I did not have any painful symptoms except for being obese and having elevated blood pressure and high cholesterol.
I wanted to be around to see my kids grow up and get married and be able to play with my grandkids. I knew that the odds were slim of this happening if I continued on the same path of unhealthy eating. I decided to read Eat to Live and viewed one of Dr. Furman's videos on YouTube. It inspired me to go "cold turkey.“ I started to eat healthy.
I am now down to 300 pounds and I no longer have high cholesterol and my blood pressure is at a decent level. I have a great amount of energy and I exercise 5 to 6 days per week. My mental health has also greatly improved. I am more positive, happy and relaxed.
My 16-year-old son also followed me on this journey. He started at 315 pounds and now he weighs a thin healthy 175 pounds and hardly has any fat on him. He is also able to jog 5 miles at a time now that his health has improved. This has been a life changing event for me and my family. We are very grateful to Dr. Fuhrman for his book and videos. Thank you.
