Amy M. lost 30 pounds and is delighted to no longer suffer chronic headaches
In the past two years, I have been struggling with chronic headaches. I do not remember when I have not experienced pain in my head. I went to many doctors and tried different types of medication for relief. A friend suggested that I read Eat To Live because it recommends a eating program to alleviate headaches. I should also mention that I have been overweight all of my life. I read Eat To Live in two days, and started the diet mid–week. I even returned groceries that are not recommended on the program and bought healthy foods choices. As the book claims, I began to lose weight quickly. My headache symptoms became worse as my body went through a major detoxication, just as Dr. Fuhrman claims in the book.
After two weeks I started getting relief from the headaches. I discovered that if I include gluten in my diet, the headaches return. I am so happy I found the source of my problems! I am now trying to live a well balanced lifestyle of walking and eating right. Even though I have not been completely strict with following the program, I still have been able to maintain a 30 pound weight loss.
