Brian Gets Healthy and Drops 90 Pounds...

When you eat lots of fruits and veggies you’ll get healthy. You’ll lose weight. And, you’ll feel great! Tons of people have slimmed down thanks to Dr. Fuhrman. People like singer Alanis Morissette, she shed 20 pounds, and me, I cut 60 pounds. Oh, and check out Brian, he’s healthy now too:

Over the course of one year I lost 90 lbs, going from 288 pounds to 198 pounds, following Dr. Fuhrman's plan and doing interval training. I also normalized my blood pressure during this time.

At first, the transition was very difficult. It was helpful for me to understand Dr. Fuhrman's explanation about the ways refined foods act as drugs in the body. I experienced ups and downs during the 9 months, but overall, adopting a nutrient dense diet coupled with anaerobic exercise, gaining social support and…continue reading.

Now what if you want to eat very healthy (avoid red meat products, limit animal fat, increase fruit vegetables) but you want to gain weight and put on lean body mass coupled with a rigrious weightlifitng program.

I've read here before that you could eat as much food as you like if you're eating the right foods, so then how do you go in the other direction adn gain weight?

Hey Ed Mac-

The only foods that are unlimited with Dr. Fuhrman's plan are fruits and vegetables, so technically you can't eat as much food as you want. For example, eat too many nuts and seeds and you'll gain weight.

Also, you can only stuff yourself so much. Even though you can eat an unlimited amount of fruits and veggies, you aren't going to be eating like a gorilla. You don't want to eat until you explode!

As for bulking up, its not exactly healthy (NFL lineman die early), your body knows what your weight should be. I've heard Dr. Fuhrman mention some people may need to add some eggs too their diet if they are looking to get ripped, but a well-balanced veggie diet (lots of greens) packs a lot of protein.

Ed- More nuts and seeds,avocado and some starchy colorful veggies and maybe some dried fruit. Members of Dr. Fuhrman's member center will be attending a teleconference with him on just this topic next week.
