The McDougall Program for Maximum Weight Loss:
The McDougall diet program is a vegan diet with an emphasis on low-fat, whole foods. The basic rules are that you eat all the vegetables, beans, and whole, unprocessed grains that you need to satisfy your hunger, but it is recommended that green and yellow veggies make up at least a third of your diet. Processed foods of all kinds are out. You are to eat no flour products, avoid all free oils, and fatty plant foods like nuts. Sugar and salt are allowed in small amounts on the surface of your foods, but you are to refrain from cooking with them. For more information, visit www.drmcdougall.com
One advantage of the plan is that you will cure or avoid most chronic degenerative diseases of the Western World. Another is that you will do far more for the health of the planet than most anything else you could possibly do.
