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.

Scott's Story

Results may vary.

Scott was so obese his doctor predicted death, he chose to live and lost an amazing 331 pounds  

I was 38 years old and was not sure if I would live to see 40. I  weighed 563  pounds and wore size XXXXXXXXXXL pants and could not tie my shoes. I could only walk nine steps at a time. Breathing was sometimes difficult. A doctor said I would be dead in six months without stomach reduction surgery and heavy medication. I turned down his advice.

Instead I decided to change my approach to eating by following Dr. Fuhrman’s high nutrient meal plan. I recognizied I had a dire health situation and the need for aggressive weight loss with optimal therapeutic effects. So I jumped right into Dr. Fuhrman’s plan for nutritional excellence. I knew the food provided all the nutrients essential for good health.

Now I never tire of the way I eat as it was designed to include everything a human craves. There are things that are hot, cold, salty, creamy, chewy, spicy, savory, and crisp. I emphasize to everyone that this meal plan is not a diet. In fact, don’t even say that word around me.  After years of trying fad diets to lose weight, the "D" word no longer exists in my vocabulary.    It is  not about a goal weight. I’m just doing what’s healthy for my body, and the results follow. I now weigh 170 pounds and enjoy biking 10 to 30 miles daily regardless of the weather.
