Dr McDougall is a rare beast in a world awash with dietary counsel and self-appointed experts. He is an awesome and lucid scientist. Courageous and intrepid too, because whether his views meet with approval or sanction, he brooks no compromise in expressing what he knows and believes to be correct. Not one of my patients has failed to derive help and assistance from his work. Highly recommended. Dr Georges S. Kaye.

Although I found the detailed information on human dietary habits and the relative merits and demerits of specific food groups illuminating, I was left with the feeling that the optimum diet proposed could quite easily rob one of the will to live. To live one's life according to this model would, in my view, leave one bereft of joy.

Oustanding 22 Oct. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book saved my son's life. He had relapsing polychondritis, a rare autoimmune disease in the lupus family. I learned about Dr. McDougall through a search on the internet for relapsing polychondritis which brought me to a vegetarian website. We had never considered diet as a possible cause or influence in my son's condition, but we bought the book and started the low-fat, whole food diet. It makes total sense that our body is adapted to thrive on this kind of food, and every day on the news comes another study showing fruits and vegetables as the cure for so many problems, while meat and dairy causes so many. This was over a year ago and my son's condition went into remission three months after taking out milk and meat from his diet. He also lost weight and so my husband and I, who had been eating somewhat McDougall, decided to go all the way and try it, which resulted in his losing 30 pounds and my dropping 50. Dr. McDougall saved my son's life and probably my husband's and mine too. Great book.

A lifelong plan for health 22 Oct. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Dr. McDougall's plan isn't for the short term...it requires changing your life (for the better), and in our fast-paced world many people are looking for the quick fix, no matter the long-term consequences. If you want a fad diet that promises you can eat all the fatty meat and junk food you want, and still drop 15 pounds in a month, by all means don't buy this book. Don't expect to keep your health, either. Dr. McDougall takes a common-sense approach that involves eating whole foods and avoiding animal products. I've been on the plan for a year and have never looked or felt better...I've lost weight, I feel wonderful, my skin is beautiful and I'm constantly told that I look younger. I will stay on this plan for life. Don't be fooled by money-grubbing quacks hawking the latest fad...Dr. McDougall is the real deal.

GO VEGAN! 12 Dec. 1999
By Emily Beighley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
An essential resource focusing on the diet and its relation to health. Although the McDougalls have made a living off of their "program," the book is free of related propaganda and focuses on well-documented and cited facts. This book has undoubtedly extended and improved many lives. In addition, The McDougall Program is a must-read for those who wonder why friends or loved ones have chosen a diet free of animal products. The book also includes recipes and advice regarding the transition to a vegan diet. The text is very accessible. You certainly do not need to be vegan, liberal, New Age, concerned about animal rights or the about the environment to gain from the information in The McDougall Program!

I've been on this plan for four years & it WORKS! 22 Oct. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The reviewer of 10/18/99 either doesn't know what he's talking about or he's deliberately trashing Dr. McDougall's book. If eating a vegan diet based around starches, fruits and veggies with very little protein is so unhealthy, why is it that the rural Asian and African people, who live mainly on starches and veggies, with very little or no meat, have far fewer instances of cancers, osteoporosis, diabetes, etc. than the primarily meat-eating countries do? My father is a perfect example. He was raised on meats and fried foods and had borderline diabetes, high blood pressure, and ultimately ended up having a triple bypass operation, due to his high fat and cholesterol diet. Following a vegan diet is one of the main reasons (along with exercise) that I have been able to maintain an 80-lb. weight loss for almost 10 years now. Please, read this book!

This book changed my life 9 Oct. 2000
By "rmpalmeri" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Following the McDougall plan now for 2.5 years I have never felt or looked healthier. Not to mention loosing over 100 lbs. If you are serious about improving your health, loosing weight, or just want some sound advice about going VEGAN then this book is a MUST! Dr. McDougall makes total sense and is easy to follow. Finnaly someone who understands the real road to long term health and weight loss does NOT start with eating eggs and bacon every day!
