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.

Rich's Story


By following the Nutritarian program 100 percent Rich avoided having a stent as his cardioologist had advised  

I started following the Nutritarian program because I was overweight and had high blood pressure with chest pain on exertion. A recent cardiac CTA scan showed moderate to severe stenosis in 3 coronary arteries.  My cardiologist said I should have an angiogram immediately to have a stent placement in the RCA.

I refused the stent and also declined to go on statins.  This was 6 weeks ago and I had chest pain at maximal exertion during my stress test. Several other doctors kept pushing me to go on statins. At that time, my stats were as follows: 175 pounds; blood pressure 135/85; total cholesterol 243; LDL 160; HDL 42; triglycerides.123. I committed to following Eat to Live 100 percent for the rest of my life.  My current stats are as follows:155 pounds, total cholesterol 151, LDL 84, HDL 52, triglycerides 73, blood pressure 115/70. The only medication I’m on currently is aspirin 81 mg.

Also, my severe neck pain from arthritis is gone. I can run 3 miles without chest pain. My goal is to run 9-10 minute miles, currently 12 minutes/ mile. The results from Eat to Live have been life changing for me, what made the difference is doing it 100 percent.
