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.
Kim lost 31 pounds and no longer has to wear her husband's larger size clothes
I discovered Dr. Fuhrman's research when watching the documentary Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead. I immediately bought Eat To Live and felt reborn. I needed to do this. The biggest change was how my energy revived even before I lost much weight. This motivated me to continue.
I have been a vegetarian for years, but hadn't realized how poor my diet had become. Even though I did not eat meat, I did consume a large amount of dairy, white flour products and highly processed foods. It had gotten to the stage in my life where I no longer could control my weight by conventional means (such as Weight Watchers) as I had been able to in the past.
When I weighed 165 pounds and no longer could fit into my own "fat" clothes, I began to wear my husband's clothes. But even his clothes were tight and uncomfortable. In addition to weight gain and loss of energy, I became chronically depressed and was treated for high blood pressure, kidney stones and finally ulcerative colitis.
Now, almost six month later, on Eat To Live, I am a slim 132 pounds and have no food cravings. For the first time in my life, I realize how interconnected health and nutrition really are and how much I want to live my life fully and energetically.
