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.

Cassie and Dave's Story

Results may vary.

Cassie and Dave were couch potatoes before they lost a total 156 pounds, now they walk, run, or hike at least 20 miles a week  

My husband and I decided we could either eat ourselves into poor health and an early death or we could eat ourselves into good health and a long life. Our families have experienced the harsh realities of heart disease, cancer, high blood pressure, diabetes, strokes, arthritis and osteoporosis. Before adopting the Nutritarian program we were feeling very old, unhealthy, tired and frustrated.  With brain fog every day, lack of energy, constant sinus infections, migraines, back pain, indigestion, eczema, severe mood swings and agonizing cravings and food addictions, our toxic diet and sedentary lifestyle was taking its toll. 

We ate animal protein and processed foods with every meal, not many fruits and vegetables.  It was not unusual for each of us to eat two to four chocolate bars every night.  I weighed 162 pounds and my husband 250 pounds. We never exercised, instead sat around and watched television. We were couch potatoes.

One night we came upon Dr. Fuhrman's 3 Steps To Incredible Health on PBS, and with this new information, our lives changed overnight.  We purchased Eat To Live, threw out all our processed foods and eliminated meat, dairy, oil, salt and sweeteners from our diet.  Eat To Live became our daily manual.  It provided us with the knowledge we needed to succeed. Our motivation was not all weight driven, but a deep passion to get healthy and change our lives for the better. My husband lost 105 pounds and now weighs 145 pounds down from 250 pounds.  I lost 51 pounds and now weigh 111 pounds from 162 pounds. We feel fantastic, and it is a great feeling to be in control of our own health.

Our physical and mental transformations have been amazing, especially when we stepped up our program after attending a Dr. Fuhrman's Weekend Health Getaway.  Upon listening to Dr. Fuhrman's lectures on food addiction, my husband, after thirty five years of being addicted to coffee and cigarettes, finally quit.  We also started to exercise. Now we walk, run, or hike at least 20-25 miles a week. We incorporate cardio with calorie-burning exercises on a daily basis.

The most valuable advice that we remind each other is health is earned.  We love what we eat, our toxic food cravings have disappeared. Instead of watching television, we log into Dr. Fuhrman’s Member Center and listen to a webinar, read an article, or just review recipes of great Nutritarian food. The only cravings we get now are for the taste of our nutrient-dense cuisine and being physically active.

Our passionate commitment toour Nutritarian diet style has had an impact on our four children, ages 19, 21, 22 and 25, and our grandson. They have started to incorporate our food choices into their diets and have begun to experience significant weight loss and overall health improvements. We get a lot of satisfaction seeing them improve their health. The one truth that we have learned from our Nutritarian lifestyle is that we all have the power to take control of our own health destiny!
