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.

Joseph's Story

Joseph thought he was going to die when his blood sugar reached reached a whopping 540; now following the Nutritarian diet after just 3 months his blood sugar is normal  

I was routinely checking my blood sugar the day after a great night of family gluttony of mixed drinks, wine, pasta, chicken parm, trying over five desserts. and all the other good homemade Italian food. We visited my daughter at her Newport RI college and thank god we were also visiting with my RN sister-in-law. She just so happened to say in the morning, let’s all check our sugars, Mine was a whopping embarrassing 540! I had to check again 498!  I was scared! She exclaimed are you ok? I said yes, I feel fine, no problems. She was ready to send me to the ER, but because I was going home to my MD friend ‘s house and had zero symptoms, I prevailed. I drove with my wife back to NJ.

 That was my turning point! I thought I was going to silently but tragically die. My friend John had been telling me about Dr. Fuhrman’s program for over a year as I always wanted to lose some weight but never acted upon it. He even sent me the links to his sites etc.  but it took this long and this horrible sugar level to realize I needed to make a change and listen to John.

After intensive strict following the Nutritarian diet, my sugar went down to 108-112 in 3 months...blood sugar was back to normal; my HgA1c was 12.9 now is 5.9.  Amazing in 3-4 months it lowered that much. And I lost 55 pounds. My pants now have lowered three sizes smaller and my Metformin doses have changed from 1000 mg two times a day to 500 mg two times a day, no other medications are needed.  My wife joked and said soon she will be fitting in my pants. I totally owe all my success to following the Nutritarian diet. I am a chiropractor and I tell all my patients about the program and show them the cookbooks and rave that they can do it too. I lead by example!

 I am walking and exercising approximately one hour per day and set an example for everyone I can help. Thank you, Dr. Fuhrman, I am alive because of you. I had gained my weight from being inactive and I needed two hip replacements from a quad ATV riding accident with my kids in Mexico with 2 torn labrums. After 4 years of limping and suffering I got the new bionic hips, lost some weight, and now I have new bionic blood! I am lowering and shedding more weight weekly. My goal is to lose 50 more pounds and fit into 34 waist pants. I started at 290 pounds; now down to 240 and my 38 size pants are getting loose.
