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.
Christine enjoyed a healthy pregnancy, and now her baby is thriving on the Nutritarian diet
As a patient of Dr. Fuhrman for over five years, I firmly believe in his nutrition philosophy. Although following his recommended diet seemed radical in our fast food culture, my husband, Jim, and I realized its health benefits very quickly.
During pregnancy and nursing, and as a new mother, it became even more important to follow his program. By consulting with Dr. Fuhrman and using his book Disease Proof Your Child as a reference, we overhauled our diet to gain maximum nutrition through foods. As a result, I returned to my pre-pregnancy weight of 110 pounds within in a few months. It has been rewarding to see our daughter, Katie thrive on the Nutritarian diet, which she really enjoys.
Knowing what foods can be potentially harmful, those that are nutritious, and the best supplements has opened a whole new world of health in our family. It has been a fun journey of discovery and relearning good eating habits. Our healthy habits have given me my health back and have given Katie a great start to life. I think Dr. Fuhrman's book is a must read for all new mothers.
