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.

Carol's Story

Carol's arthritic foot is healing after going on a ten day fast and losing 10 pounds; now she enjoys her Eat To Live recipes  

I read Dr. Fuhrman's book Eat To Live after hearing about it on the Dr. Oz show. For the last ten years, after menopause, I have been struggling with my weight.  I tried other diets and nothing was long lasting. I was very frustrated as I always regained the weight. Then my foot started bothering me at the joint of the large toe.  I went to my doctor to see if it was gout or arthritis. He sent me for X-rays and blood work. While waiting for my next appointment I read Dr. Fuhrman's book Fasting and Eating For Health.  I did have arthritis in my foot and he wanted to me to see a specialist.

After reading Dr. Fuhrman's fasting book I was determined not to start taking any synthetic medications. I told that to the doctor and that I was going to do a fast. I asked if he was familiar with Dr. Fuhrman's book. He told me he was, so I asked if he would supervise my fast, and he agreed. I went on the fast for ten days. I drank water, coconut water and organic raw Kampuchea with probiotics-enzymes and detoxifiers in it. I lost fifteen pounds, and I never called the doctor because I never felt bad or hungry.

When I went off my fast I followed the Eat To Live vegetarian diet menu and have been doing that until today. My foot is healing. My friends and family have noticed a big difference in me, and I am determined  to keep the weight off. I am enjoying all of Dr.Fuhrman’s recipes. I made several soups, veggie burgers and even the pumpkin pie. It's all delicious and I feel so healthy that I am giving his book out to my friend as gifts. I also ordered his cookbook as this is how I want to live for the rest of my life. Thank you!
