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.

Bill's Story

By learning to control his food addiction, Bill lost 100 pounds and has energy to enjoy life  

My life was out of control, but I didn’t know it. At 268 pounds, I couldn’t run or participate in activities; I was slowing down to a crawl.  I thought the mirror was lying because I was living in denial. I had high blood pressure and was on meds for various problems, but thought, hey, I’m getting older and this comes with age.  Food was an addiction and I was addicted. I ate all day and no food was off limits.  I felt like garbage after eating a meal. I didn’t realize that being tired all the time was due to poor nutrition and the excess weight that I was carrying around.

It was a downward spiral that desperately needed to be stopped. Then, a co-worker introduced me to Nutritarian eating. He was eating more than I was and losing more weight, so I decided to start the Nutritarian program. My body responded the first few days. I was hooked. I lost 100 pounds and feel  I have energy for the first time and am now enjoying life.

No more high blood pressure, my cholesterol is normal, no more heartburn, waist under 40 inches, BMI at 25 (that's big for me), and no more stomach problems.  I am able to exercise and run for long periods.  I am much more active all day long. I feel younger and look for ways to move and stay active. I love to eat healthy and feel so good afterwards. My arthritis pain is better and my flexibility has greatly increased. My motto now is: A body in motion tends to stay in motion. A body at rest tends to stay at rest.

I enjoy cooking more than ever. Its fun to cook and not go out to eat. I'm not interested in restaurant food (not sure what they are putting it in the food). Food feeds my body like never before. Eating is good these days with new foods to try.

As time goes by I have become more toned and better fit. My activities have increased and my life is more active. The Eat To Live book has given me a lot plus the Super Immunity book as well. My wife and I have adopted these as our lifestyle. My goal is to run a 5K race and attempt to drop another pant size.

I have fallen off Nutritarian eating for a few days and always discover that my body reacts to processed foods and overeating in a negative way. The feeling I get is nauseating. This keeps me on track, knowing what the consequences are if I choose to eat the wrong kinds of foods. This is a sustaining way of life for me.
