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.

Jacky's Story

Working as a chef was life-changing for Jacky who lost weight and resolved many life-long healh issues.  

I had been interested in optimum health for many years as far back as my twenties. I was into the latest fad starting with high protein diet  that left me thin but feeling  so sick, like death. I have been vegan ,vegetarian raw fasting, starving, anorexic etc.

Becoming vegan removed many health issues, however ,I still had lingering joint pains ,would get colds and flu all the time and struggled with allergies accompanied by headaches. I struggled to lose 20 pounds no matter what I did.

I remember thinking well I exercise so much each day. I am juicing  organic, I don’t eat desserts, no sugar of any kind. I can’t do anything more. Despite being a private chef,  I still stuck with my plan; cooked rich foods for my guests but different for me. So, I concluded that this is my body, I have weaknesses this may be my lot. I prayed to God to please show me if I am missing something or there’s a better way

In December 2018, my prayers were answered. I was hired by  Dr. Fuhrman as a private chef at his newly opened Eat to Live Retreat. I decided that I would follow exactly what the guests at the Retreat were eating; whatever I cooked for them I would eat myself. It was not very far from the plan that I was already following ,but there were certain things that were different. Lo and behold I realized that I had been limiting myself so much and that there was a whole other lifestyle that was the Eat to Live way that I could enjoy such as  date sweetened desserts.

I very soon realized the mistakes I had been making .In a week my weight was falling off. Within a couple of months, I reached my goal weight, my headaches were gone ,my joint pain and the cracking in knees was gone and  I no longer got  coals and flus easily.

Even two weeks after starting to work at the Retreat I could see the difference in photographs and a lot of inflammation was gone from my face and from my joints The Retreat was life-changing for me and also it was amazing to have a front row seat to seeing people be healed from diabetes, auto immune disorders, high blood pressure  and lifelong health issues.  I got to see people lose 60 pounds in 12 weeks.

 I know that my story is not the usual testimony of losing a huge amount of weight but I think that there are so many people out there who struggle to lose that last 10 or 20 pounds and despite doing everything correctly  and what the common American diets promote, cannot lose the weight despite exercising for hours and the weight still stays on. I know that that is very discouraging because I’ve been there myself so I hope that my story  encourages people.

I also realized that I did not need to exercise as much as I had been exercising hours a day and that I could really enjoy foods that I had limited since my 30s and I am now in my late 50s. I continue to not only follow the Retreat plan. I still work in the food industry. I  sometime work  10- or 12-hour days. I have endless energy, can hike, and continue to work in an industry that I love. I also develop recipes  that are plant-based and beautiful with no oil, no sugar ,no salt and wonderful flavors.

I want people to know that there is a whole lifestyle in the Ear to Live way that you can enjoy it and it’s there for the taking. There are so many books by Dr. Fuhrman  you don’t have to go to the Retreat to get well;  just read the books and join Dr. Fuhrman.com community  with so much information. Of course, if you can I highly recommend attending the Eat to Live retreat in San Diego

I thank God daily for answering my prayer to find a better way .
