The authors' McDougall Program has been the basis for half a dozen other cookbooks, a weekly television show, and a line of McDougall's "Right Foods" sold nationwide. The program is basically a diet extremely low in fat and high in starch, and this latest book offers quick recipes for converts (although preparation time is 15 minutes or less, cooking times are often longer). While cutting back on fat is probably a good idea for most Americans, the McDougalls at times seem to verge on fanaticism as they discuss "disgusting, damaging fats and oils" and describe how manufacturers "use unfamiliar names to disguise harmful ingredients" so that "fats and oils are hidden" (they don't mention that those same ingredients labels also give fat and saturated fat percentages). And it seems strange that there are no nutrition analyses of their own recipes. Buy for demand.

The husband-and-wife McDougall team runs a California clinic specializing in weight loss through pursuit of an ultra low-fat, meat-free diet. Their newest cookbook encourages people to follow their regimen by providing recipes that readers can prepare in 15 minutes or less. Most of these recipes use commonly available ingredients. Even the occasional call for a specialized item, such as silken tofu, no longer presents a problem, since the new nutrition movement has made soy products ubiquitous. Since these recipes eliminate all animal products, vegans will find the book useful, too. An appendix lists commercially processed foods that meet the McDougalls' nutritional standards. Although the authors hold up their diet as a virtual panacea against modern Western civilization's diseases, they do not offer nutritional analyses of the individual recipes, which makes the book much less useful for those with diabetic or other illnesses.
