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.
Debbie's lifelong chronic kidney disease is improving and she lost 42 pounds
All my life I have had chronic kidney disease/nephrosis. Shortly after starting the Eat To Live diet, I went to a nephrologist. I told him I was on a whole food plant based diet and was hoping my condition would improve. The doctor said it was all well and good to eat right, but it would not improve my condition. Last week I went to my regular doctor and had all my blood levels checked. In July of 2012 my creatinine was 1.20 and three months later it dropped to 1.03 which is in the normal level and is unheard of for me.
Also, I have been overweight most of my adult life and now I lost 42 pounds. I have had high cholesterol for a few years. I was put on Crestor to control it.Two years ago my total cholesterol was 298. Now it's 145. I have my medical records to support the differences in my levels. The PA I have been going to for years is amazed at the difference in me and my blood levels.
