Superior Diet and No More Skin Rashes

When you get healthy, good things happen. Sometimes it’s obvious. Scott lost 250 pounds. You’ll notice that! But for Jodi it was different. She had chronic skin rashes all over her back, until she improved her diet and starting living better:

Unfortunately, I slowly lapsed back into my old sad habits, living a frantic, restaurant hopping, stressed out life in Manhattan. By the time I turned 50 in 1999, now living in NC, I was covered from head to toe with psoriasis and tested positive for other autoimmune diseases: rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, Hashimoto’s and Sjogren’s.

In my quest for improved health, I read Dr. Fuhrman's book, Fasting and Eating for Health. The book has a chapter devoted to autoimmune conditions. I have followed his eating plan since 2001 with much success. I experience skin–flares up only when I stray from Dr. Fuhrman's eating program…continue reading.

Scott Loses the Big Shirts and Over 250 Pounds

When you change your life, awesome things can happen. Take Robyn, she slimmed down and kissed her headaches good bye. Or Jacob, he was out of shape and chubby, but today he’s ripped. And check out Scott, he cut 260 pounds and now he’s a bike riding machine:

He wore size XXXXXXXXXXL pants and could not tie his own shoes. He could walk only nine steps at a time. Breathing was sometimes difficult. A doctor said he would be dead in six months without stomach–reduction surgery and heavy medication.

Scott turned down his doctor’s advice, and instead decided to change how he thought about food and his approach to eating by following Dr. Fuhrman’s high nutrient meal plan.

Recognizing his dire health situation and need for aggressive weight loss with optimal therapeutic effects he jumped right into Dr. Fuhrman’s most extreme plan for nutritional excellence. The food provided all the nutrients, protein and vitamins essential for good health…continue reading.

Charlotte Kicks Diabetes and Heart Disease

Summer is right around the corner. Perfect time to slim down and look great in your swimsuit.  Even singer Alanis Morissette lost the weight and now looks hot and sexy. And check out Charlotte, today’s she’s thin and healthy:

About a year and a half later I am off all my diabetic and heart medications. I have had no further heart problems and my diabetes is gone. My fasting blood sugar averages 79 without treatment. Since July 29, 2003 until now my total cholesterol has dropped from 219 to 130, my triglycerides are down from 174 to 73 and my LDL cholesterol has lowered from 149 to 70.

My current weight is around 130, slightly less than half my maximum. Since I wear a larger size on the bottom than on the top, I give it with two numbers. I have gone from a plus-size 24W/26W to a misses 8/10, which is a smaller size than I have ever worn in my adult life. As hard as it is to imagine, the last time I was this weight I was under age 12…continue reading.

Robyn Loses Weight and Her Headaches...

Too many people get fat and stay fat, but others actually do something about it. Like David, he dropped the weight and then started running marathons. And Robyn, she used to be confused about diet and ate all the wrong things, but today she’s looking good and living headache-free:

My headaches are gone, I don't feel hungry between meals, and rarely have food cravings — and when I do, it's for leafy greens! It is so much more pleasurable to eat when you are really hungry, which now occurs much less frequently.

Eight months later, I was 65 pounds lighter. I am content eating pleasurably and healthfully and just feel so much better. I now have the energy to exercise again and enjoy it. Not only do I feel better, but my hair, skin and nails are in the best shape ever…continue reading.
