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.

Ellie's Story

Developing a benign uterine polyp was a "wake-up" call for Ellie who lost 45 pounds, joined Dr. Fuhrman’s Detox and Weight Loss Challenge. and says Dr. Fuhrman saved her life  

In November 2020, I experienced postmenopausal bleeding because of a benign uterine polyp. After doing a lot of research, I learned that uterine polyps were caused by excess estrogen and that excess estrogen was the result of excess body fat. One week later, I broke my right ankle and had plantar fasciitis in my left foot. When my ankle cast was removed in March 2021, I realized my physical condition was very dangerous. I was 57 years old, could barely walk, was pre-diabetic, had a BMI of 37.4% and a waist size of 42” and my estrogen level was six times higher than it should have been. It was a real wake-up call.

 I had read most of Dr. Fuhrman’s books and decided to re-read Eat to Live”which became my roadmap for change. I began my Nutritarian journey on March 21, 2021, with my self-initiated Eat to Live six-week program and continued my journey joining Dr. Fuhrman’s Detox and Weight Loss Challenge. I have learned so much from Dr. Fuhrman and his team since March 2021. I have seven goals, some of which I have achieved, spanning both the short and long term, and I have changed my relationship with food.

 As of January 2022, I have lost 45 pounds, exercise every day, have reduced my BMI by 8.1 percent and my waist size by 9 inches, and have reduced my A1C and estrogen, both of which are now in normal ranges. I became a Nutritarian because I did not want to spend my retirement living with disease, drugs, or doctors. My action plan was following Dr. Fuhrman’s advice by learning about food addiction, changing my eating habits, exercising, and getting my hormones – estrogen and insulin - in balance. I am still on my journey in pursuit of optimum health with a goal to lose another 40 pounds by October 2022. What I have learned and put into practice from Dr. Fuhrman changed and saved my life. I will never go back to eating the way I did before becoming a Nutritarian because I feel better now than I have at any point in my life. Thank you, Dr. Fuhrman, and team!
