Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The McDougall diet is unlike most medically based diet plans in that it doesn't limit the amount eaten, but radically changes what is eaten and how it is prepared. These recipes eliminate fats, meats and dairy products. The McDougalls ( The McDougall Program ) run an in-patient program at St. Helena Hospital in Santa Rosa, Calif., for people who want to drastically change their eating habits. The recipes substitute water for cooking oil and soy-based products for dairy ingredients. The McDougalls write that their diet plan is less extreme than the Kempner Diet developed at Duke University Medical School, and that it would seem to be a good choice for athletes or people who must change their eating habits either because of health problems or severe food allergies. For the rest of the eating public, however, the McDougalls's claims are bound to raise eyebrows; to wit, "The incidence of human leukemia worldwide is in direct proportion to the amount of dairy products consumed," and "I realized early in my career that the diseases from which most people suffer are caused by eating too much rich food." To their credit, the McDougalls do offer a wide range of recipes drawn from many different ethnic backgrounds--e.g., black bean burritos and waffles. They also discuss how to adapt a recipe to their regimen. Their recipes are well-organized, and a list of health food mail-order stores is provided. Given the draconian nature of the McDougall diet, however, it's not something to start without careful consideration.

From Library Journal

The McDougall Program is a health plan that revolves around a starch-based fat-and cholesterol-free diet. John McDougall, author of The McDougall Program ( LJ 4/15/90), runs an in-patient program at a California hospital. Mary, his wife, developed most of the 300-plus recipes presented here. A few, such as a Holiday Vegebird constructed out of brown rice and bread stuffing (it even has fake giblets), come from fans of the program. The McDougall plan does have some famous followers, but, overall, the dishes in this collection are unlikely to attract many new converts. And, oddly enough for a diet book, there are no nutritional analyses attached to individual recipes. Buy for demand.

Customer Reviews

They are very easy and quick and taste delicious.
Cindy Fitchett
I think Dr. McDougall has the answers to our health problems and reading all of his books, even the ones that are out of print or hard to find is so worth the effort.

These books will change your life for the better - they might even save your life.

I was simply looking for a low-fat cookbook at the library, and happened upon this treasure. After only about a month of eating their food I'm a much lighter and a much healthier person. The only downside is that I have to put up with people looking at me cross-eyed because I dare believe that milk and meat make me sick. Try it. It works. And there's no hidden cost! Although this isn't really a 'diet program', it has the same effect, and there are no shakes to buy, or classes to sign up for. Just eat right and exercise... the eating right part is the big difference.

This cookbook is great! Eating healthy never tasted so good. Meal preparation is easy, fast and uses ingredients that many of us keep on hand. There is a wide variety of recipes for every taste, and even a section of low-fat, healthful desserts.. yum! An added bonus - a forward by Dr. McDougall explaining his program for better nutrition and health. The first cookbook I have ever bought that doesnt contain recipes I wont use. No sifting through this one to find "something" to cook. Every dish is appealing, and I will use this cookbook for years.

Format: Paperback
I was amazed that the professional reviewers of this book had such a "bah-humbug" attitude about them! The program is hardly "draconian" as one reviewer put it -- you eat all you want of healthy, good tasting, real food. My mother discovered McDougall ages ago, before any of these glossier books came out -- and at 83, she still takes no medications and at her last check-up, the nurse commented that her "heart was like a teenager's!" The hardest part of staying on McDougall is that you have a whole culture working against it -- all those high-fat foods or this strange culture of the "high protein" diet. People think you're some kind of "weirdo." But the usual American diet isn't weird, right? We can buy meals in minutes with 1200+ calories and 69 fat grams and never even have to leave our cars! Read the reviews by the people who have actually tried McDougall -- they loved it. Even people who are enticed away from this way of eating area always wanting to go back to it. It does take some dedication at the start -- one is breaking some very old habits. But it's worth a try. McDougall has decades worth of healthy patients to reinforce what he's been developing since his earliest days as an MD. He's still a practicing doctor, still a researcher, and continues to grow and learn about nutrition, health and the vegan diet. Atkins died overweight and very sick. John and Mary McDougall are still healthy and robust -- and so are the people who actually follow his nutritional advice. Does that say something? Within the past couple of years, my brother-in-law, inspired by my mother's experiences on McDougall, tried it out. He was widowed, had had a heart-attack, and was looking for a better way to eat and be healthy.Read more ›

we happened across the mcdougall program through anthony robbins.we were total dairy and meat addicts and believed that it was really good to eat lots of it.however ,we did a 10 day challenge and cut it all out ,and have never looked back....blood pressure dropped,weight dropped,muscle tone and energy increased.we now have perfect skin and the whites of our eyes are now perfectly clean....so we are hooked...don't worry...he does say you can have a "feast food" on a special occassion, so you aren't going to have to never have your favorites..but you will discover an efficient well body that you never realised you had!. book is great...

Format: Paperback
In an 8 month battle with the health effects of years on the standard Western diet, this book is now the first off my shelf of cookbooks. (McDougall Quick and Easy is second).

The index is useful. The food is filling and tasty. The health effect is 65 pounds lost and cholesterol cut in half. You will satisfy your desire for good food and possibally save your life!

The great thing about a McDougall recipe is the spice blends. Mary McDougall really knows how to put spices together to make things delicious. I highly recommend this and other McDougall books.

Having just recently started a low fat, low sodium, plant based diet this is just what I have been looking for. Being a meat and potatoes all my life I had no clue as to where to go as far as recipes.
