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.

Ellen's Story

Ellen lost 55 pounds in 4 months and went from a size 16 to a size 2  

At 176 pounds I was the heaviest I had ever been. I was pre-diabetic and not feeling well. My doctor told me to lose weight, but gave no insight on how to go about doing it. So I decided to get a gym membership. I took a dance class three times a week, but got discouraged after three months because I was not losing weight.

I decided to study nutrition and came across Eat To Live. I found the book fascinating because it made so much more sense than restricting calories and trying to eat less of the same nutritionally bankrupt food I had been eating for so long. I decided to take all the advice in the book and lost fifty five pounds in four months. I went from a size 16 to a size 2. I have kept my gym membership, and do cardio and lift weights several days a week. I have seen totally amazing results thanks to Dr. Fuhrman.

My husband was 265 pounds when I decided to lose weight. He does all the cooking and promised he would support me in reaching my goal. But he insisted he was fine, and not interested in losing weight. I do all the grocery shopping so I started buying healthier and more nutritious food.  As a result, my husband lost 90 pounds in two years. The funny thing is we never noticed he lost weight until a friend came to the house and commented on how good he looked, and how much weight he lost. I was shocked to hear this so I made him get on the scale, and his weight was 174 pounds. As it turns out, his weight loss was so gradual that neither one of us even noticed. He has never been to the gym or worked out besides carrying his forty seven pounds telescope around a bit and walking our dog.
