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.

Anthony's Story

Followig his wife's prescription to switch to Eat To Live Anthony lowered his alarming high triglycerides, lost 40 pounds and loves his healthy foods  

My husband, Anthony, has a very inspiring Eat To Live story.  Because of me he knew about Eat To Live for years, but resisted changing his diet. He loves Italian food, sandwiches and crème sauces. His idea of a quick and good lunch used to be three hot dogs on white hot dog rolls.  He often overate and would frequently eat two very large plates of food.  Anthony had diabetes for several years; his blood sugars were high enough for meds, sometimes spiking to the low 200s.

In the past I begged Anthony to follow Eat To Live, but he wouldn’t make the change. He continued to gain weight, and his blood test results got worse. Our family often wondered what was keeping him alive.  Anthony’s blood work results in January 2012 were a wake-up call. His triglycerides were 962, and this now alarmed him.  The doctor, of course, prescribed medications. I prescribed Eat To Live. Anthony knows I am against meds because they do not solve the problem, and they do not promote health, so he decided to skip the meds and follow the Eat To Live program in mid-January.

By mid-February, he lost 20 pounds and his glucose levels declined. He would remark on how good he felt and how he had more energy. No longer was he concerned that he won’t have enough food to fill him up. He now eats when hungry and will decline a meal if it’s not on the Eat To Live plan.

Fast forward to April 2012. His triglycerides are down to 85. I couldn’t believe it. He lost 40 pounds and his glucose levels have improved without meds. Now Anthony’s dedication to Eat To Live is impressive, and his improving numbers truly remarkable.  His weight went from 195 pounds to 155; fasting glucose from 150 to the 80s; total cholesterol from 305 to 186, and cholesterol/HDL ratio from 10.5 to 4 after only four months. A good amount of belly fat has melted away. He makes the most delicious Fuhrman recipes on his own. On a recent business trip he took a cooler full of veggies with him.  He has passed up buffets, his Mom’s Italian food (which he really loves) at a family gathering, birthday cake at his son’s 21st birthday, and snack tables at our dances. He eats salads when we’re in social settings or in restaurants.  No oil, no snacking, no processed foods, and low sodium. He has not cheated.

Whenever someone asks about his weight, he tells them about Dr. Fuhrman and the Eat To Live way of eating. Lots of people ask, and Anthony loves to talk. Whoever thought he would be one of Eat To Live’s biggest supporters?
