Nanette lost 45 pounds after years of being overweight
Thank you Dr. Fuhrman for writing Eat To Live. It answered all of my “why” questions; why sick, why tired, why cancer, why childhood obesity. For the last 20 years I dieted, starved, gave up favorite foods. I lost and gained repeatedly, yet was consistently 40 pounds overweight. I tried Weight Watchers and Jenny Craig. No one ever told me about real food; food that has nutritional value. Fifteen years ago, I was diagnosed with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), high cholesterol, high triglycerides, diverticulitis, and bleeding rectum. My doctor's solution was multiple prescriptions and two surgeries. I asked why I had these conditions. The doctor's answer was "aging." My husband had already joined the prescription club, and he was having the side effects of each prescription. Then my hair began falling out. Finally, I started reading labels of fake food containers and on all of my toiletries. Wow! No wonder I was sick and felt very old. Then I found Eat To Live.
Now I preach, eat, drink, and sleep Nutritarian. I have two friends that have successfully lost 60 pounds. I am working with a few others, and the very first thing that I have them do is make them read Eat To Live. I also speak to women's groups about real food. I've lost 45 pounds, work out three-four times a week, have gone down four pants sizes, and feel like the Isly Brother's song Lift Your Hands UP & Shout! I teach 4th and 5th grade Sunday School, and have tried out all my recipes on the children. They love them and my hubby does too. He is no longer on his two prescriptions.
If it grows on a tree, plant or in the ground, God made it, and I'll eat it. We search out the best locally produced organic food, and share all of this information on our Facebook page. I sing your praises all the time during my presentations. Eat your lemons; eat your vegetables, chew, chew, and chew. Can I just say that Dr. Fuhrman helped give me my life back!
