Kate's Story

Kate lost 64 pounds, no longer is housebound from pernicious anemia and loves her new energy  

In 2009 I was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease, pernicious anemia. I was told there really wasn't much that could be done other than take B12, which I started immediately. This seemed to help me to some slight degree, but it didn't really handle my fatigue. At that point my life stopped completely. I couldn't work, had zero energy, and felt miserable all the time. No doctor at any time ever mentioned anything about food.

Researching to find out more about autoimmune diseases, I came across Dr. Fuhrman's Eat To Live and it immediately made total sense to both my husband and me. We recognized that food was the one constant in our lives that had never really changed despite all the different modalities we had tried in the past. I had always considered myself a healthy eater. I stuck to organic veggies and meats, never drank colas or ate candy bars, and watched the ingredients in my food. But the older I got, the worse I began to feel. I was up to 170 pounds, my cholesterol was at 239 and my fatigue was at the bottom.

Reading Eat To Live was all it took. We both committed to that way of eating 100 percent. It's now been almost two and a half years that we've been following the diet style and I can honestly say during this time I have never once eaten something that I wasn't supposed to. I went from a 170 pounds to 106 pounds. My cholesterol went from 239 to129 and my dress size went from 14 to size 2.

My husband and I have availed ourselves to all of Dr. Fuhrman's information, emails, newsletters, webinars and website forums, and it has completely changed our lives. The statistics speak for themselves, obviously, but more important to me is the energy and qualities of life I now have. When people meet me for the first time they cannot believe that just a few short years before I was housebound and had virtually no life at all. Now I am actively back in the land of the living and it's an honor to be able to share my story, and how simple it is to get back your health and vitality just by following Dr. Fuhrman's advice in Eat To Live.
