Very Handy Cookbook
on October 30, 2011
First of all, this is basically a summary of The McDougall Program: 12 Days to Dynamic Health. It is not an extensive read, but more of an introduction to Dr. John McDougall's program which is a starch centered, plant based diet. This book is a very inexpensive read and will help you make the decision whether you will want to continue more extensive reading or not. Dr. McDougall has several great books but you might not want to spend the money for an unknown plan. This is the best of both worlds, as it explains the program, what is allowed and not allowed along with how to shop, prepare and cook 12 days worth of meals along with some snacks and desserts. I wish all of Dr. McDougall's books were available on Kindle, but again, this is a great opportunity to find out the basics of the program very inexpensively.
Dr. McDougall has many books that go into much more detail on the scientific, medical reasons for eating the way he suggests, but this is a excellent primer. I suggest The McDougall Program: 12 Days to Dynamic Health and The McDougall Program for Maximum Weight Loss for follow-up study.
