Stephanie always struggled with her weight, now she has maintained her 63 pound weight loss for 3 years
I had just had my third child and was 50 plus pounds overweight. I was sad and feeling fatigued and needed to make a change. Since I was very young I had struggled with my weight going up and down and tried every product out there with no success. The weight would come back and the fatigue would follow.
My sister went to a doctor who told her about Dr. Fuhrman's Eat To Live. She gave me the book and I read it immediately from cover to cover in three days. As I was on maternity leave I went right to work to change my habits and ultimately my lifestyle forever.
Although I had no major illnesses or diseases to overcome I saw people all around me suffer from them and I wanted to prevent myself and my family from ever having similar experiences. I went on the six week challenge and still remember the look on my husband's face when he came in and saw all the fruits and vegetables everywhere and me chopping away. He was supportive but skeptical. The six week challenge was wonderful. It invigorated me and felt great. By the end of the six weeks I was down 23 pounds. It forced me to be creative with my foods and recipes and start a new way of looking at eating and nutrition.
Over a period of eleven months I lost 60 pounds and I am proud to say that three years later I am still at the same weight. I have never looked and felt better, and not for one second have I looked back on meat, dairy or processed foods.
I owe it all to Dr. Fuhrman's wisdom. What I take pride in the most is that I have passed the book and the knowledge on to others who have also succeeded in changing their lives and health for the better.
