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.
At the age of 76, Bob is thrilled to have lost 80 pounds and to have greatly reduced his diabetes medication
What makes my health improvement so encouraging for older people is that I was a 74-year-old man with type 2 diabetes for almost 30 years on 9 prescriptions taking 5 insulin injections per day of 85 units per shot. I couldn’t lose even 2 pounds in the last 25 years and woke up just as tired and feeling as bad as when I went to bed.
I never knew that diabetes was reversible, so I took the medicines and ate everything. I noticed both of my ankles were getting black and I thought that amputation was going to be next for me. I asked my doctor what more could he give me? He responded, “we’ve tried it all and there is no more.” Knowing I was in big trouble I had to find a solution in order to fulfill every purpose God had given me to accomplish. Since I was only born-again in 2002, dying or put out of circulation was NOT ACCEPTABLE TO ME!
I started two years ago learning everything online I could on nutrition. I immediately went on a full-scale vegetarian diet. I didn't know what to call how I was eating, and when I first saw Dr. Joel Fuhrman on video, I said, that's exactly the way I'm eating and it's called the Nutritarian diet! Over the last 24 months, as I keep learning, my diet continues to improve weekly, and so does my health.
As soon as I started the Nutritarian diet, I had to regularly reduce my insulin and my energy started to improve and I started to feel better than in years. In total, I lowered my diabetes 80 percent and lost 80 pounds and feel better than I did 20 plus years ago.
Because of the severity of my diabetes over the 30 years and my advanced age, my body may not ever fully recover to a non-diabetic level. However, all aspects of my life have skyrocketed all thanks to Dr. Fuhrman and his Nutritarian diet. I have become my own “health advocate” to inspire others in every way possible through a free garden tour open to the public and daily posts on Facebook on nutrition and gardening. Life at 76 is now fully exciting and purposeful. You can have the same.
