Disease Proof

The Real World

I'm a nutritarian who lives in the real world.

I have children, so therefore, I have a vehicle that hides half eaten suckers and stale candy bars deep within its seats. I find them. I usually eat them.

I have a little boy who likes to have “treat dates” with his mom. I'll be his date.

I have a young adult daughter who has sprouted wings, and flown to new adventures, and wants to show me her exciting city, and the Italian restaurants that abound within. I'll visit her discoveries.

I have graduation and birthday parties to attend. Weddings to celebrate. Art openings to linger at. Holidays to enjoy. I'll continue to rejoice with family and friends.

I’m 100% committed to living the ideal life of excellent health and well-being within the real world.

The real world…filled with pizza, chips, dip, macaroni and cheese, chicken nuggets, hot dogs, cheeseburgers, fries, pop, stale candy, birthday cake and parties, ice cream treats, social events and holiday gatherings centered around high fat / low nutrient foods, chronic malnutrition, organic depression, type II diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, achy joints, lethargy, chronic fatigue, a stuffy nose, back pain, triple bypass surgery, dialysis, astronomical medical bills, insulin, heart meds, ace inhibitors, anti-depressants loaded with toxic side-effects, baggy “fat clothes” composed of black shirts and stretch pants, and absolutely nothing fun to wear.

I eat to live. I eat for health.

I nourish my cells with nutrient dense foods.

I am kind and gentle to my body.

I’m fully committed.

Abstinent, yes.

Perfect, no.

For life.

100%.

How have you managed to commit to Dr. Fuhrman’s nutritarian lifestyle while living within the real world?

The real world for me. Cans of no-salt beans, bags of frozen peas, lots of cashews, an abundance of fresh fruit (mostly watermelon when I can get it) and a loaf of sprouted whole grain bread.

CJ - July 28, 2009 3:21 PM

Today opted for my huge green salad I brought for lunch, a cup of beans and some blueberries. I sat with my co-workers at a big table while they ate their pizza, soda and bread sticks and then celebrated a birthday with cake. I felt neither deprived or left out. I laughed at the same jokes as everyone else and was spoken to; I just wasn't interested in eating like that today. I made my choice. I am happy. I live in the real world too.

Thank you Emily.

I was part of the real world today. Tomorrow is my son-in-law's birthday and we started the celebration early with my husband, daughter and her husband (the birthday boy) and grandchildren going out for lunch to celebrate. We live in San Diego which is known for some great Mexican food. My son-in-law's choice of restaurants was a small tortilla factory with a limited menu, but the best authentic Mexican food you could ask for. However, the menu is loaded with fried items, cheese and meat. What was I to do? I did the best that I could. I ordered a large bowl of pinto beans. They were not refried, but I have a sneaky feeling they may have some fat added and definitely added salt. When I got home I ate a few apricots and a plum and plan on having a very large salad for dinner. That along with my morning green smoothie will keep me pretty much on track. Not perfect, but not bad!

Gina - July 28, 2009 8:14 PM

As a long time follower of this blog, I must say that I am disappointed in the quality of writing of this new writer. All her posts read like an editorial in a women's magazine. I know somewhere in the post there must be a message, but by the second paragraph, I find myself struggling to understand exactly what the message is. This post is all about "I"... Out of the 16 "paragraphs" in this post, 10 of them start with "I". Sorry, not impressed at all. If I want poetry, I'll read Elizabeth Barrett Browing.

Gerry has always delivered informative, extremely well written and often witty posts. He delivers great information regarding health and wellness which he backs with actual studies none of the flowery, fluffy posts Emily writes.

This latest addition to the blog is detrimental to the image and integrity of this blog....please put a stop to it.

Last Christmas, after having eaten very ETL-healthily for five months, I gave myself permission to taste everything, including having a small piece of pumpkin pie and whipped cream. On the way home I was shocked to realize I felt the craving for more pie as if nothing had changed in five months. The kind of craving where I could envision eating the whole pie--without utensils if need be! "What am I going to DO?"I asked myself. When I got home I ate the only thing at hand--an apple. And drank some water. And then got the second shock of the evening: my cravings for the pie completely disappeared. I felt completely satisfied. The cravings that had been nearly overwhelming just moments before were gone. The lesson for me was that the sooner I get back to "real" food, the sooner the cravings for sugar/fat/salt disappear, and I'm right back on track. I sometimes go out for weekend breakfasts/brunches (tofu scramble has become a favorite) or dinners (several appetizers usually do the trick) and then just get right back to smoothies, salads/beans, vegetable medleys, fruit, nuts/seeds, etc., and I don't feel cheated or deprived at all. A healthy "real world" is definitely possible!

Joel Fuhrman, MD - July 29, 2009 8:31 AM

Gina-

Emily’s writings add a new dimension to the blog that we are all excited about. Encouraging, motivational, artistic, maybe controversial at times but deal with living the nutritarian lifestyle I recommend in the real world, which could often be a difficult, even foreign place to a person concerned about their health. If you don’t “get it” that is your issue. Too bad for you that you don’t. There are thousands, including myself who do “get it” and am proud of her work and what she brings to this blog.

Michael - July 29, 2009 8:52 AM

I like reading Emily's posts as well. While I enjoy reading informative posts, I am more inspired by hearing other people's journeys. I get bored with reading most of the informative posts because I've usually already read them before.

Michael

Jennifer - July 29, 2009 9:25 AM

I too want to extend an appreciation for Emily's blog/writings. As my husband and I raise our son with nutritarian eating values I find challenges EVERYDAY that can be very frustrating and exhausting. His daycare facility, which I love very much, serves daily lunches and snacks that are by NO means what we nutritarians would call healthy. I am constantly communicating with them what he can and cannot eat (some days I am not very popular) as well as the parents of his friends. It is great to read that others go through the "real-world" challenges; all we can do is continue to be examples and keep telling people about ETL. Thank you Dr Fuhrman for your truly wonderful work.

Claudia - July 29, 2009 9:50 AM

Hey Gina,

For me, what this post is about is living in the real world without being 'of the world', although taken in isolation I can really see how the message might not come across. Taken in isolation, it might appear that Emily is a hypocritical person who constantly eats suckers, chocolate bars, and all sorts of junk food, but that really couldn't be farther from the truth. She is actually a person who has inspired untold numbers of people who have followed her personal journey of transformation, and recovery of her health.

I know Emily from Dr. Fuhrman's member website, and she has always impressed me as a tremendous writer. She has a way with words that has probably inspired more people on Dr. Furhman's member site than anyone ever has. Blogging though is new to her, so it may take a little practice to provide the proper context for those who have not read her writings before. Of course those of us who have followed her will totally get it all.

Anyway... Emily has gone from obese to thin, and from poor health to being vibrantly healthy, and enjoying life more than ever, and she loves being able to wear fun clothes that she couldn't wear before. She loves knowing that she will be free of the diseases that afflict so many people in the 'real world'. What she is saying is that her head is in a different place than it was before. She doesn't crave the junk she used to eat, and her preference will always be healthy foods that nourish her body. If she does eat something that isn't perfect, it is a temporary compromise in a social situation, because she is a compassionate person that doesn't want to rain on anyone's parade. Yet, at the same time, she influences others by her example. She has grown children who are following her eating habits now because they have seen the amazing transformation in their mother. However, she still allows her son to have a treat date with his mom, to go for an ice cream cone because it is an important thing to him, which was allowed to the other children when they were younger. She wants the kids to follow her example as adults, and realizes this is something that can't be forced. It has to done by providing the knowledge and information in order to make the transformation.

Stephanie J - July 29, 2009 10:52 AM

Wow, that was a really condescending response Dr. F. What's up with that?

I was going to post something similar to what Gina wrote - I am not a fan of these convuluted posts from the new contributer either. I get halfway in, time and again, and have no clue what point she is trying to make. I wouldn't have been able to come up with such on point phraseology, but "editorial in a women's magazine" is it exactly!

Poor writing, covered up with fluff. I don't like the way this new stuff t all. Too bad, I used to come here for some lighthearted support for my attempts to eat better and take care of my health. Now, I may skip it all together. Particularly after reading your nasty response to someone who appears to be as dedicated to your mission and this blog as I thought I was.

Adam - July 29, 2009 11:03 AM

While I can appreciate that maintaining a healthy lifestyle is difficult and requires daily vigilance, I'm not sure Emily's contribution fits with the informative, factual and health-positive tone of Disease Proof.

For me, this site has always been about understanding the importance of a healthy lifestyle and maintaining the discipline required to extend and enhance a person's quality of life. Emily's article seems to take the unfortunate attitude that daily slips are OK and understandable. This is in contrast to the usual tone of Disease Proof articles which focus on how maintaining the daily regiment is not only possible, but can also be enjoyable.

On a more personal note, I prefer to see tips on staying healthy rather than read personal stories of the contributors. I may be in the minority here, but the personal nature of Emily's posts seem more appropriate for a very different type of website rather than in a serious column about health and wellness. While some readers have seemed to embrace the recent change in focus, I feel it may exclude others.

It will be hard to distinguish Disease Proof from most of the other wellness columns available on the internet which are filled with testimonials promoting just another fad diet.

Joel Fuhrman, MD - July 29, 2009 11:34 AM

Thank you for your comments and I apologize if my comment there was too harsh. What is up is I want to support the great work Emily is doing, and not discourage her with negative comments. And, I want to make it clear because you disagree or are not a fan of her style, that doesn’t mean that others do not appreciate it, including me.

Stephanie J - July 29, 2009 11:59 AM

I appreciate the comment Dr. Fuhrman.

Your defending her is admirable. Presumably she is your employee so surely you believe she has something worth contributing and want to encourage her work. But at the same time I think you are missing the point that some (many? most?) loyal readers of this blog do not like her posts or her writing style and think she is taking away from, not adding to, a great site we have come to enjoy very much.

I doubt she'll kill the blog all together. I know I see enough of the "regular" posts to keep me interested, but I still thought it was quite rude of you to essentially chastise another loyal reader for resenting the fact that the tone and message of this site seems to be changing in a negative way. Maybe some do find her whimsical (??) style of personal reflection helpful or motivational, but I simply do not.

Additionally, I don't understand a post about regularly eating stale, half consumed candy left in a car and how that relates to maintaing a committed, nutritarian lifestyle.

If the message is, we all slip up, but the important thing is staying on track and trying harder in the future to avoid slip ups, I support that and understand it. But if the message is it's ok to cheat on a regular basis, here and there - like when one comes across, old disgusting sugar laden candy, of all things, that one apparently feeds to one's children(!!!), or goes on regular "treat dates" - then I am absolutely confused as to how that fits in with YOUR message about optimal health.

We're all YOUR supporters - I just don't see why we all have to like the new blogger too without getting "in trouble." I find this all really disappointing.

Ginny Achstetter - July 29, 2009 2:03 PM

I love these posts. I want to follow the ETL program but go off track because of what goes on in my social life. These posts are very supportive to me. Gina and Stephanie, I suggest you not read what you don't like. For me, I find it refreshing and informative. This is the kind of thing that can give me ideas on how to handle life as it comes at me while trying to following the ETL program. I have a family I want to encourage to eat well. Most social events are centered around food. This has been a big problem for me. Keep the posts coming Emily!! :)

Cara - July 29, 2009 2:12 PM

I too truly enjoy Emily's posts and think they add a nice new dimension to the blog.

If Emily's topics and/or writing style isn't your cup of tea than just skip over it and move onto the next topic...no big deal. That's the great thing about blogs...you take from them the information you need and are looking for and skip over the rest.

I know Emily's posts have been an inspiration to me and many others and I look forward to reading more.

Dana Halloway - July 29, 2009 3:30 PM

Emily's stuff is fine, but not really my thing. I've been skimming her posts because I find them too long.

The candy thing... I hadn't read the post, but was intrigued by the number of comments. I read them first, then read the post. It's not as wishy washy as some are making it out to be and I don't know about it being called a "poem", but consuming your kids' half eaten, dirty old candy? Was that supposed to be a joke? (I hope)

Don't give your kids candy Emily! Surely fruit or raw veggies would be a better snack for car rides?

Claudia - July 29, 2009 4:01 PM

I am really, really, hoping that the folks who did not care for Emily's first couple posts will keep an open mind, and give her a bit more of a chance. This is because the impression that they have gotten from the first couple posts does not at all match up with the Emily that I know. The Emily that I know is an incredibly positive person, with a very powerful message, which is yet to fully unfold and be revealed here.

You see, the reason that Emily ended up here in the first place, as far as I can tell, was by popular demand. It was not an accident. On Dr. Fuhrman's member site, she inspired others greatly, as she shared her experiences with us during her journey of transformation. The first thing that many of us would do every day would be to check Emily's thread to see what was going on, and what inspiring new things she had to say. She straightened out so many people, and got so many people back on track that when she told us that she wouldn't be posting as regularly anymore, people were absolutely begging her to keep posting! Thus, you can imagine the excitement that having her agree to post on this blog has generated. Because we are proud of her, and she has become so special to so many of us, you can imagine the disconnect and surprise that we feel when we see others react differently. I truly believe that anyone who sticks around will eventually come to really appreciate what she has to offer. It really hasn't come across yet. For those who don't know Emily yet, I can honestly understand how these posts were out of context when seen in isolation.

Emily Boller - July 29, 2009 4:10 PM

I really do appreciate the honest dialogue from everyone! Seriously. It is my utmost desire to craft words with excellence and clarity, because the nutritarian message is THE key to complete freedom from toxic food addiction that is utterly ruining the health and sanity of this nation. Constructive criticism is important. I need it. I value it. I welcome your comments.

I've discovered half eaten suckers or candy bars in my car perhaps two or three times at the most this entire past year. I impusively put them in my mouth out of "not thinking"; not because of a craving. Definitely not something I do on a regular basis. No way.

I took my son on a "treat date" once. That day the guilty mother thing got the best of me.

I ate at an Italian restaurant with my daughter once.

I rarely, seldom ever, eat toxic or addictive foods anymore. Because my body is so well nourished, completely satisfied, and cleansed from toxic foods, I literally have no desire for junk anymore. In fact, I get violently sick about six hours after I eat high fat, processed foods. Perhaps my last foible was at a graduation party in late May, and I dearly paid the price six hours later.

I listen to all feedback, positive and negative. Your comments and opinions are important to me. You are important to me. I respect and value what everyone has to say. I'm teachable, because I want everyone, young or old, fit or flabby, male or female to experience this same freedom that I have discovered through committing to, and following the nutritarian way of eating.

Eating for health has not only saved my health and life, but also the health and life of one of my children who has suffered greatly from complications due to type I diabetes.

I wouldn't trade this newfound freedom and health for all the money in the world. I'm dead on serious.

I won't be available to post for a couple of days, because I'm going away to celebrate 28 years of marriage with the love of my life.

Keep the dialogue going. It's great! Thanks for posting.

Sincerest blessings of health and well being to all!

Emily

Later . . . .

Adam - July 29, 2009 4:35 PM

Dr. Fuhrman,

I've always respected your wellness system and the body of work you've established to promote your insights into living an active and healthy lifestyle.

While I can only speak for myself, I don't believe any of the previous commentors meant to attack Ms. Boller personally. Her writing is very creative and has clearly resonated with some readers here. I am simply concerned that her writing, which is part confessional part poetry, isn't a good fit for Disease Proof

The type of inspirational emotional appeal to your readers unfortunately clumps this site in with countless other fad-sites that are not based in fact or science. Again, while Ms. Boller is clearly committed to health, and her postings are certainly interesting, I feel that her contributions are the type of new-age musings which have for years tarnished the field as a whole in the minds of most Americans. Ms. Boller's recent remarks in this forum about junk food causing "insanity" typifies my concerns.

Again, I have nothing but respect for you and the work you do, I simply wanted to express my concern about the new direction the site seems to be taking. I think new blog readers will get the wrong impression.

Colleen - July 29, 2009 8:41 PM

I have to say that I completely enjoy the encouragement and creativeness Emily's posts display. While I can understand that her style is very different from Gerry's, I fail to see why that is a problem to any reader. Should we not be exposed to many different ideas and concepts in order that we grow and continue to improve ourselves, both physically and intellectually? If I don't enjoy someone's blog, I simply pass over it. There is no need to call someone's character into question. But to read Emily's posts is to be caught up in her honest exuberance and zest for health and life. Blog on, Emily--I can't wait to see what's coming next!

Catherine - July 29, 2009 11:30 PM

As ridiculous as it sounds, I think my primary reason for any negative reaction to these entries are, em, the incredibly blog-esque style that the end has. I do agree that the style that seems slightly like poetry isn't my thing, but I still can understand why others would appreciate it. What does irk me is the questions. I understand that they prompt discussion, which is fantastic, as support helps with any major lifestyle being sustained. It just seems so... cheesy. And we all know cheese isn't very healthy :) Even just prefacing the question with a solid statement (The real world can present challenges; how have you managed to commit to Dr. Fuhrman’s nutritarian lifestyle while living within the real world?) would help. And making it seem like less of an advertisement would help me too. I don't own any of Dr. Fuhrman's books yet, but I know I intend to at some point in the near future; advertising (blunt or subtle) is discouraging.

I do appreciate the reply from Emily in such a benevolent manner. Enjoy the anniversary Emily :D

CJ - July 29, 2009 11:47 PM

Until Emily began writing her blog on Diseaseproof I had not been on this site much. I followed Emily over to Diseaseproof from drfuhrman.com to continue reading her encouraging words and follow her success and her overwhelming excitement with her new found life. I feel her writing is inspirational and she puts a slant on things and presents them in a way I had not thought of before.
I have been a Dr. Fuhrman follower for three years and then along comes Emily, new to the game, but very successful and begins teaching “old timers" new tricks. So many things she said or did opened my eyes and helped me more than I can say. To me it has been a pleasure to read anything she writes as she firmly believes in ETL/EFH, is totally committed and has helped so many people like myself when we were ready to throw in the towel.
Regarding old candy bars and found candy; I think Emily was pointing out what lengths she would go to before ETL/EFH to get her fix. And the cigarette blog was pointing out how SAD is as hazardous as cigarettes.
I hope to continue to read Emily's writings here; by the way, for you folks who touted Gerry's writings over Emily's... I usually skip over his blogs (no offense Ger!).

CJ

Emily Boller - July 30, 2009 4:37 AM

Thanks for the comments.

Dana, the half eaten candy discovered deep within the seats of the car were from soccer games, fall harvest parties, and treats from Sunday School.

I feed my family nutrient dense foods at home. However, because the culture, as a whole, is so heavily addicted to junk, my kids get the unhealthy stuff everywhere they go, and somehow, a leftover piece always seems to end up in the interior cracks of the car.

If I knew a way to prevent the serving of junk to kids in public places, I would pursue it.

The change of one person is a transformation. The change of many is a revolution. It's going to take the efforts of all of us combined, parents, teachers, coaches, clergy, leaders, etc., to create a safe and healthy world for our children.

And Adam, thank you for your honesty. I appreciate your comments. I have spent time listening to the hearts of those suffering greatly from the pain of obesity. I have experienced the pain and suffering of obesity myself for almost twenty years. I know what it is like to have dignity stripped away from one's very personhood because of it. I have a child who has had type I diabetes for seven years. I have seen firsthand how uncontrolled blood sugars can affect the mind. I've listened to many heart breaking stories. Homes and families are literally being destroyed because of strong addiction to toxic, low nutrient, processed foods. Malnutrition is running rampant in America. I wholeheartedly believe that toxic food addiction is ruining the health and sanity of many wonderful people in this nation. It's so sad.

Colleen, thanks for your comments. Were you a cheerleader in high school? You have the gift!

Thanks everyone for the stimulating comments!

I love the "ironing sharpening iron!"

Emily

Manda - July 30, 2009 6:01 AM

I appreciate this blog for the light-hearted, sometimes irreverent viewpoint it takes. While I appreciate Emily's attempts, I must agree that her message is often lost in delivery. Each post has left me wondering, "huh?" and has needed further explanation. It's not so much about content as it is about clarity and the ability to deliver a message.
I would love to hear about those guilty mommy moments and the internal struggle experienced. I would love to hear about how a wife, mom, and real woman deals with social situations while staying true to the needs of her body (although, maybe not if the answer is, "I regularly eat the junk so I don't hurt anyones feelings").
Already those of us who adopt a nutritarian lifestyle deal with the "health nut" reputation. Like Jennifer, I am the mom that is not always popular at the daycare when the menu issues arise. Even though I work in healthcare, I am "a hippy" because I choose to bring healthy foods for lunch. I have made a conscious effort to be friendly and factual in explaining why I eat (and want my son to eat) in a certain way, rather than to gloss over or eat the unhealthy foods in order to appease others.
The more of us who can present ourselves in an intelligent and clear manner, the less "weird" this healthy, disease-preventing lifestyle becomes to the mainstream. I enjoy Emily's perspective, and would like to hear more. However, less of the "women's magazine editorial" please, and more of the honest, personal, clear perspective.

lori - July 30, 2009 6:44 AM

Adam,

"The type of inspirational emotional appeal to your readers unfortunately clumps this site in with countless other fad-sites that are not based in fact or science."

I'm afraid you may be missing the point. It is not the tone of the writing that distinguishes this site from fad diet type wesbites. It is the content. The concept of nutrient density and nutritional excellence is not taught on many websites and your disliking some of the presentation is not terribly relevant nor is it considerate to the many other types of personalities that are wanting and needing this information.

I believe different perspectives and tones are probably a good thing for a website that is trying to get its message to reach many different parts of society.


Elaine K. - July 30, 2009 9:53 AM

Today is my first visit to this site and to the blogs.
When I got to Emily's blog I loved it so much that I
wanted to see all the comments and read more. None of
the other blogs moved me to to that.
I am reading Eat To Live slowly and carefully. I am
feeling more than a bit daunted by the challenges ahead. Emily's blog encourages me to believe that it will be
doable even in the junk food infested environment which
surrounds me.
Thank You, Emily.

James - July 30, 2009 9:59 AM

"your disliking some of the presentation is not terribly relevant"

Sure it is! A long time reader can't have an opinion about the new writer, her style and the content of her posts? His disliking her contributions is just as legitimate as your liking her contributions.

"nor is it considerate to the many other types of personalities that are wanting and needing this information."

Why should someone have to be "considerate" of a bunch of strangers on the internet and how they may or may not perceive and process information??

I don't think Emily's posts are terrible, but they could definately use an editor's pen. I don't know if anyone checks her work, but trimming down some of the content and organizing it a bit better wouldn't hurt.

Should I not express that opinion in this forum because it might be "inconsiderate" of someone who more thoroughly enjoys her too-long ramblings?

Jeanne - July 30, 2009 12:18 PM

Emily's posts are bad, plain and simple.

If all you rabid Emily fans love her so much - why not be content with keeping her - I guess on dr.fuhrman.com? Is that where she's from?

I got into Eat to Live because of this blog - it's funny and quirky and I enjoy reading it. It piqued my interest and made what viewed as an incredibly extreme and unattainable lifestyle seem approachable.

I've gotten several people in real life hooked on the blog as well - all were skeptical and thought Dr. F. was just another "health guru" - and all have come to implement aspects of healthier, nutrient based eating into their lives because of this blog. Sure, none of us are "nutritarians" yet, but I know I feel better just making sure I'm get some veggies in every day, and I'm avoiding some junk foods I used to eat without thinking.

It seems to me from reading this commentary that Emily's posts are making her "fans" really happy and that those fans have followed her over here from wherever else she used to post. While that's great for her and them, it's kind of a shame for those of us who were into this blog as a sort of "Intro to Dr. Fuhrman."

charlie peter - July 30, 2009 4:50 PM

I see that Emily has a very loyal fanbase! However, I come to this website to get the latest health information. While other readers are perhaps looking for an inspirational boost or help with explaining their dietary parenting decisions to their step-parents, I simply want information regarding keeping myself healthy.

While personal stories can really bring to life portions of the Eat to Live lifestyle, this sort of writing goes too far from the mainstream health information and is treading dangerously close to crystal-healing and cult-like followings.

Colleen - July 31, 2009 5:29 AM

Wow! How can this possibly be a problem? If you are inspired by informative clippings from journals, then please read those blogs. If you are encouraged by posts about how Emily got to where she is today, read those. Many of us enjoy them both! But to describe someone as a rabid crystal-healing cult follower goes just a little far, doesn't it? I'm just trying to be inspired. Can't we all play together nicely on the playground of good health and a great life?

Nancy - September 10, 2009 7:51 PM

I'm with Colleen. I think Emily is an ETL success story which makes her an inspiration to me. This transition to ETL is tough. I need motivation each morning to make it. I look for encouragement each day and her posts are helpful!
