After yeras of being a yo-yo dieter Michael signed up for the detox and weight loss challenge. and overall lost a total of 123 pounds
My journey has been a long rollercoaster ride with lots of “loops.” I read Dr. Fuhrman’s Eat to Live many years ago. I connected to his Nutritarian lifestyle intellectually, but emotionally and mentally I was not there yet. I spent a few years going on and off the Nutritarian lifestyle. I was never 100 percent compliant, so I gave up each time, and gained back any weight I had lost.
On New Year's Eve 2016, I committed again to trying the Nutritarian lifestyle. At 6 ft. 5 inches, I weighed 365 pounds. Over the next few months, I lost over 60 pounds, but once again, I gave up and went back to the SAD diet.
I yo-yoed back and forth until May 2021, when I signed up for the detox and weight loss challenge. I knew to be successful, I needed to finally address all aspects of my life – especially my emotional and mental health around food.
I started the detox at 329 pounds. I focused on being 100 percent compliant and learning to give myself grace when overeating. The webinars and Facebook group were amazing and so supportive. The first couple of weeks were tough, but I got through them. I worked hard on being mindful and learning about what causes overeating. At the end of the challenge, I weighed 242 pounds (currently 237), down 87 pounds from the beginning of the challenge and 123 pounds down from New Year’s Eve 2016. I am never going back to the SAD diet.
