Julia Saves Her Life and Regains Her Health

Obesity rates are staggering, same goes for heart disease and diabetes. And too many people stay overweight, keep eating poorly and just pop pills, but others don’t go quietly, like Julia, she lost 105 pounds and overcame her life threatening heart problems:

I almost died soon after the last angioplasty and had internal bleeding that was difficult to stop. The torture of all my medical problems made me think I would be better off if I had died. I was left with unstable angina, meaning I had chest pain from my bad heart almost constantly. I weighed 225 pounds and I could not walk one block. I was on ten medications and was a cardiac cripple at the age of 60.

Luckily I learned about Dr. Fuhrman and read his book Eat to Live. Within three months of following the plan, my chest pain was gone and I was walking again.

Needless to say, marriage, having children and running to food when the stresses of life caught up with me or celebrating with food when I was happy, resulted in me weighing a little over 200 lbs. I'm only 5ft tall, and I weighed almost the same as my husband and more than my father!! Each time I tried to lose weight, I'd reach half way and ruin everything...continue reading.

No one likes be fat and miserable. It’s depressing. You feel like a lump. Being lean, mean and fit is so much better! Like David, he cut the pounds and now runs marathons and check out Jacob. He went from unpleasantly plump to ripped:

I am 5'10" tall and started out weighing 275 pounds around four years ago when I decided I wanted to change. I started to eat a standard “healthy” diet and lost about twenty pounds and became stuck. Then I made the decision to become a vegetarian, started reading Eat to Live, and began applying some of the principles. This got me down to about 200 pounds. This was when I decided to become a vegan and began applying myself to Eat to Live and hovered around a diet of 90% Eat to Live adherence. This dropped me to about 185 pounds.
