Success stories and more at Dr. Fuhrman's weekend immersion

After a nutrient dense lunch, and Dr. Fuhrman’s lecture on disease-specific nutritional recommendations, we were treated to a few inspiring success stories.

High nutrient eating is truly powerful, and has allowed many people to lose incredible amounts of weight, get off medications, reverse diabetes and heart disease, and reclaim their health.  Today we had the pleasure of hearing the personal stories of a few individuals who have begun living vibrant, active lives with a nutritarian lifestyle. First we heard from Adrienne, who had been obese since childhood. At 319 lbs., on the day she was going to schedule her appointment for a gastric bypass procedure, a friend told her about Dr. Fuhrman.  Now, after about a year and a half, she has already lost over 130 lbs.  She can now fit both of her legs into her old pants, and her success story isn’t over yet!

Then we heard from Anthony, who with the help of a nutritarian diet went from weighing over 300 lbs. to running a half-marathon at a healthy weight in just under 2 years.

Dr. Jay Benson discussed Dr. Fuhrman’s Center for Nutritional Medicine and the Nutritional Education Institute, a program founded by Dr. Fuhrman that educates and certifies individuals who advocate nutritional science for the prevention and reversal of disease and weight loss, allowing them to coach others through transitioning to a nutritarian lifestyle.

Dinner, of course, was another round of delicious and beautifully prepared nutritarian food - including Dr. Fuhrman's anti-cancer soup, kale with cashew cream sauce, vegetable shepherd's pie, and asparagus with black fig dressing.

After dinner, we had a special musical treat from Marjorie, who sang about "the day she nutrified" (video). Then everyone settled in to watch Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead, a documentary featuring Dr. Fuhrman
Tomorrow, everyone will learn the latest developments in nutritional science from Dr. Fuhrman, and go home with new (or renewed) healthy habits.

When mentioning food is there a way to link them to the actual recipe? Love hearing about the beautiful and delicious food, and would love to check out the pantry and see if I can make!

I want this to be MY way of life, but the excessive gas is keeping me in the house. No one has said anything about gas. Am I eating too many beans?
