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.

Sharon's Story

After having thyroid cancer and surgery, Sharon read Eat to Live, lost 45 pounds and loves her new way of eating  

I started the Nutritarian diet this year (2019) after having thyroid surgery and thyroid cancer. I figured it wouldn’t hurt to start eating healthy and get my body well. I bought Dr. Fuhrman’s Eat to Live book and never looked back. I focused on the health and the weight loss of 45 pounds as a bonus that have changed my life forever. I’m very grateful for finding this new way of eating. I love eating healthy and my body has learned to love eating healthy nutritious food. I’m no longer on blood pressure medication. I’m still being seen by Penn Medicine, and the last time I went in September they said what are you doing? I tell everyone about the Nutritarian diet and how it can change their life. I still have my thyroid scar but now I have my life back. The scar is just a reminder of how strong I am and that I can do anything!
