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.

Maria's Story


Growing up Maria's family made her feel sickness was inevitable with old age; now following the Nutritarian diet she is confident of a healthy and long life  

I started the Nutritarian diet because I didn't like the idea that my long- term health was out of my hands.  That one day, due to bad luck or bad genes, I would suddenly join the racks of the unwell.  As a child I "learned" that old people just became unhealthy.

  My grandmother fell broke her hip and fractured her shoulder and that started the downward spiral that eventually lead to diabetes, dementia, and a slow-wasting away of life.  I watched as my mother and her siblings nursed her withering body for years and the emotional and financial toll that it took on all of them. The ripple effects continue today, even though my grandmother passed away almost two decades ago.

 I remember many conversations about how we were all doomed to a similar fate as our grandmother due to the genes we inherited.  Those conversations scared me because they gave me little hope that I could do anything to avoid my health destiny.

The Nutritarian diet has been nothing short of a re-education of everything I thought I knew about health, food, and long-term quality of life.  The Nutritarian diet has put the power back in my own hands to take care of myself both now and as I age.  I no longer fear getting older because I believe the Nutritarian diet will keep me health and strong well into my golden years. And I lost 20 pounds.

I remember eating an amazing tomato from a local farm.  It was the best tasting thing I'd eating all day and a thought popped in my head.  Dr. Fuhrman wrote that this amazing vegetable is loaded with micronutrients that will fight to keep me healthy now and in the future.  I got to know that farmer really well after that and the tomatoes weren't the only produce that was amazing.  My life changed with that first tomato and has been remade thanks to everything else I re-discovered beginning that day.
