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.

RWCrumbler's Story

Before Robert changed his diet he thought death was at his door; he lost 75 pounds and credits Eat To Live with saving his life  

In 2000 I had a triple bypass for the three of my worst blockages which was the worst medical experience I've ever had. Then a colonoscopy discovered bowel cancer.  I had surgery for that and recovered nicely. I eventually ended up on taking the following medications: Isosorbide, Metropolo, Crestor, Warfarin, Furosemide, potassium and aspirin.  My heart was beating so slow I couldn't expel the fluids from my body and I couldn't walk fifty feet without stopping to catch my breath. My waist increased to a tight forty six and my shirt collar to eighteen and a half. My maximum weight was about 268 pounds. I was a blob of gelatinous protoplasm. I reasoned that I was getting old and this is what happens to old people. Soon, whenever I went out, I made sure I had my insurance information and ID with me so that if I went down on the street the paramedics would know who they had and the ER would know that I had insurance.

I eventually started watching Dr. Fuhrman on PBS TV.  His program made so much sense. I quit taking my prescription meds because I was convinced they were killing me and my cardiologist was simply documenting my demise. I went off them slowly, and began taking vitamins. How I wished I had found Dr. Fuhrman sooner. I started by eating cooked vegetables and then eased into the six week plan. It was easy for me. I started to lose weight.  A funny thing happened.  My cardiologist wouldn't listen when I told him what I was doing.  Sometimes I cheated, but went right back onto the plan the next meal. I had to buy new clothes. I had to have a suit cut down. I had to buy new shirts. I loved it. People noticed. I talked about it in church.

I now see a different cardiologist.  I explained that I had stopped taking the prescription meds and how I changed my eating.  He is totally supportive. I am now able to walk as much as I want. I ride my bicycle, peddling constantly for thirty minutes in the evening; I can quickly walk up two flights of stairs and not be winded.  My weight loss stopped at about 193 pounds, so I'm down about 75 pounds.  I see obese people in the gym and know that this is not the way to go.  The owner of the gym has complimented me on the weight loss, and my keeping it off. I gave him one of Dr. Fuhrman's cards and told him how I did it.  Dr Fuhrman has it right.  Eat To Live saved my life!
