Join me as I blog my way through Dr. Furhman’s Eat to Live plan again, (yup I did this before and lost over 21 pounds)! My goal is to reach my ideal weight by doing the 6 week Eat to Live plan by Dr. Fuhrman until I reach that magic number! I will be posting the meals I eat with the goal of getting an archive of 100 days of Nutritarian meals on the blog! If you are currently on the plan we would love to hear from you, please comment and post pics below! For more Nutritarian motivation check out my Eat to Live Pinterest board or on my Instagram account –I know how tough this transition is and am happy to help in any way I can!
Breakfast: 1/2 cut steel cut oatmeal with 1 cup unsweetened almond milk, 1/2 banana sliced, 1/2 ounce raw walnuts, sprinkle of raw chia seeds
Lunch: (see first pic in post) Extra-large mixed greens salad with sliced radish, cucumber, red cabbage, carrots, sun-dried tomatoes and 1/2 cup cooked green peas, dressed with apple cider vinegar

Hello, I want to eat this way but I just can’t seem to stick to it at all. Espescially since I am the only one in my family that wants to eat this way. I just am a weak for not being able to get the hang of it.
You are definitely not weak at all. This is an extremely difficult lifestyle to develop especially when you’re the “lone wolf” doing it in your family. That’s how it was for me and it took me YEARS to figure out how I could integrate it into my life.
My advice is to start with one thing and get really good at it. Best place to start is with one large salad with an oil-free dressing daily for a month. You’ll get plenty of benefits to your energy levels and overall health from this one consistent change and then you you can add in another change: 1 large steamed green vegetable daily. Practice that for a month and then tackle the next item!
You can do this. But it won’t happen overnight. Be patient with yourself but also push yourself to be consistent!
I have a great checklist you can use here: The Basic Nutritarian Guidelines
