I am thrilled with the contents and format of this new book from Dr. John and Mary McDougall. When it comes to building a foundation of health, it really is so simple and McDougall keeps reminding us of just that.
A whole-foods, low fat, vegan diet is easy to implement and a joy to experience, coupled with the easy weight loss and health that results. In response to contemporary debate about what the first humans on the planet ate, the point is we are an omnivorous species and can easily do – and thrive – without the health, environmental and humane issues surrounding the use of animal products. There’s no reason any more to eat animals, and an unending list of reasons not to.
When people object that the changes are too inconvenient, I answer it is far less inconvenient than being fat and hungry at the same time. Let me show you how I do it, I’m always happy to share.
The Starch Solution is a rich resource of research supported answers to so many common questions that I encounter in my practice on a daily basis, and having them so beautifully packaged in one place is a big package under the Christmas tree. Questions such as, “Where do you get your protein?” ” Where do you get your calcium? “Aren’t potatoes fattening?” The answers are all in there.
The McDougall approach is forming the foundation of nutrition programs that are in place and growing around the country, including Meals for Health and Whole Foods Market. And the recipes are from Mary’s premium collection – I made her whole-wheat biscuits for breakfast this morning, adding grated orange peel to the batter and with the oats in the recipe they tasted like giant oatmeal cookies.
A bold, honest piece of work, which we expect and appreciate from Team McDougall. Stars all over the chart.

Anna, what an excellent report! And I know what you mean about the book – it’s one of those can’t-put-it down titles. So glad your copy arrived down under! You are doing wonderfully.
I was so excited to get this book that I pre-ordered it on Amazon. I got it a couple of weeks ago and have not had the time to sit down and read. I think that I knew I wanted to devour it in one session. I have two days off next week so I am going to make it happen!
Nancy, you are going to love having this as a reference and inspiration. Promise you’ll come by and report in after you read it!
Lani, THANK you for the awesome Teleclass last night! I loved the selection of materials you shared with us. Can you please post a link to the chapter from the Starch Solution that is online that you shared with us? Great introduction!
Also, I appreciate that you shared the letters from clients – and thanks to them for permission to share it with us. I always love hearing personal experiences.
Will the recording be posted today? Thanks again for everything!
Jennifer, I’m so so glad you made it to the call – were you on webcast or phone? I enjoyed it to. I’m uploading the recording to my server now and will mail the link out in just a bit, so watch your email. And I”ll get back to you about the link to Starch Solution Chapter 1 later today.
Thanks again and talk soon!
Thanks Lani! Just ordered my own copy from Amazon. I have never read or owned a McDougall book before, so I’m very excited!
You posted this on my birthday! I must be meant to get it 😉
Sandy, that is so cool! Did you jump?
