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.
The Atlanta Family are all reaping significant health benefits following the Nutritarian plan
We have had tremendous success as a Nutritarian family. My husband and I both read Eat To Live. I also read Disease Proof Your Child, and have had great success by following the advice in it. We have three daughters, Amanda is eight years old, Liza is seven years old and Adeline is five years old. Unfortunately, they all inherited my extreme food sensitivities. By following the book's guidance, we were able to eliminate Adeline's asthma and Liza's chronic constipation and sinus issues. We have also stabilized their moods, increased their attention span (they each have mild ADD/ADHD), and helped them sleep better by eating a 90/10 diet.
We talk about nutrition whenever possible, and our children understand that a nutrient-dense diet is essential for them to feel and perform their best. We play the 90/10 game at dinner. If I serve a meal that looks like less than 90/10, they will run to the fridge and add some fruits or veggies to their plate to increase the ratio of nutrient-dense foods. In the past year, they have gone from begging to buy the nutrient-deficient school lunches, to begging for my homemade black bean and quinoa burgers in their lunchbox. We have fun with healthy food, and it makes us all happier.
My husband and I have also healed ourselves through the program. Within four months of following the plan his asthma was cured and he lost 30 pounds. I cured my daily migraines, and got off painkillers. I also have autoimmune thyroid disease, and healed myself with food and yoga without drugs. It requires constant management, so I insist on eating Nutritarian all the time.
