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.

Heather's Story

Debilitating migraines/headaches, loss of sleep and allergies caused Heather to take meds for anxiety; now she lost 76 pounds, headaches are gone and she feels great  

I am a 38 year old wife and mother of three and have been overweight for the most part of the last ten years. My highest weight was 201 pounds (I am 5ft. 7in). For as long as I can remember I have suffered from horrible, debilitating migraines. I had prescription medication that retailed for $100 a pill. I was exhausted in the middle of the day, to the point where I would nod off while driving. If I wasn't suffering from a migraine, I almost always had a headache; pretty much daily. I couldn't sleep. I would lie in bed for hours, even if I was dead tired. I suffered from terrible seasonal allergies and right before I started the program I had an unexplained facial rash that didn't go away for months. I didn't have the energy to play with my son. My family tells me I was just plain grumpy. I had started taking an antidepressant for anxiety.  I am pretty sure I was well on my way to diabetes, a heart attack, or colon cancer.
 
I first heard of Dr. Fuhrman when watching the movie Fat, Sick, & Nearly Dead.  I was so inspired by it I juiced for about four weeks, falling short of my 60-day goal. While I felt great, I knew it was just a detox for my body and a prepping for what was to come. I remembered Dr. Fuhrman in the movie and read Eat To Live  in a day.  I lost 76 pounds and now weigh 125 pounds. I don't ever feel deprived. I make green smoothies at least twice a day and even my kids drink them. Since following the Nutritarian lifestyle I have not only lost the weight, but, more importantly, I feel fantastic. My daughter asks me, "mommy, how come you never get sick?" I haven't had so much as a cold in eight months. I no longer suffer from migraines or headaches. I have energy, and sleep very well. I stopped the antidepressant last year and no longer suffer from anxiety. I feel great all the time.

My monthly cycle has completely evolved as well, down to just three days with no pain. I used to be about six days with moderate to severe pain. I also broke out like a teenager until about six months ago, like I was going through puberty. Now I have this glowing skin and don't even need to wear make-up or spend half the morning trying to cover up blemishes.  When the body heals, it heals everything. I feel like a million bucks, and Dr. Fuhrman is my inspiration. Thank you, from the bottom of my healthy heart, thanks you.

I think everyone on the planet should read Eat To Live. I've memorized mostly everything, but the bookmarked pages are great to refer back to when people ask me, "What are you doing to lose all this weight?" I quote the book, send them the link, and tell them this is life changing.
