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.

Gary's Story

Gary beat his food addiction and lost 86 pounds  

I was 260 pounds and addicted to food, especially sweets and desserts. I would overeat and get seconds and thirds until I felt absolutely miserable. In my twenties I took up bicycling, which helped me lose about 40 pounds. Unfortunately, I didn’t have good eating habits established to maintain the weight loss. After a bike ride, I would reward my efforts with junk food.  Then, I began working full-time, going to college, and taking care of my family.  Due to lack of time, I quit riding my bike and put all the weight back on.

I met Emily Boller through some friends and was inspired by her weight loss story.  I read Eat To Live and was impressed with the health and nutrition facts in the book.  It gave me the necessary encouragement to lose weight again, because I was motivated to live a healthy, long, and medication-free life. I followed the six week plan in Eat To Live and experienced tremendous results in weight loss and well-being. 

Now, I lost 86 pounds and weigh 174 pounds, am energetic, and feel great.  I am back to riding my bike almost every day, and I’m even planning a long distance bike trip. In addition to bicycling, I’ve started doing push-ups every night. When I started I was lucky to accomplish two push-ups. Now I am up to doing two sets of 30. I hope to get to 100 without stopping.  I want to live to be a hundred years old without medications or radical medical intervention, and I want to still be riding my bike at that age. I now believe I can do this; I now have the tools to make this a reality.
