Results may vary.
After following the Nutritarian diet for 7 months, Karen lost 6o pounds and her BMI decreased by 10 points. Even better, her LDL cholesterol dropped from 136 mg/dl to 61 mg/d – a result that left her primary care doctor astounded.
“After hearing Dr. Fuhrman speak at a retreat center In November 2022, I was inspired to incorporate more plant based meals into my diet.
In January 2023, I participated in the Weight Loss Detox. When I began, my weight was 273.4 lbs with a BMI of 45.5. Seven months later, my weight is 213.0 with a BMI of 35.4. That's 60.4 pounds down and a BMI difference of 10.1 That is an average of 2 pounds released per week (in 30 weeks).
This is the way I plan to eat for the rest of my life. It just makes sense to me to be a Nutritarian: Eat only nutrient-dense plant-based food with no added salt, oil, and sugar.
The body runs much more efficiently on this sort of diet. I employed intermittent fasting of 14-16 hours a night during the majority of the last seven months.
My lipid panels from October 2022 and April 2023 show a significant difference, with a drop in LDL cholesterol from 136 to 61.
I'm having another lipid panel drawn soon, and I know that my numbers will be as good or even better.
I'm grateful that Dr. Fuhrman was the catalyst for putting me on the path to taking better care of my health. This way of eating has really clicked for me. I am confident that I will be able to lose the rest of the excess weight I need - as long as I continue to eat only plant-based food (which is delicious, by the way) and to fast intermittently."
