If you are going to eat a mcdougall diet I see no reason why a Fuhrman diet would not be as healthful. All personalities aside, and eschewing the argument about the ethics involved, the question is--will eating plants and eschewing meat, fat, dairy etc bring about health or not? Fuhrman's diet is so similar to Pritikin, Esselstyn, McDougall etc. (McDougall even allows nuts on special occasions and Fuhrman says if you are not at your normal weight, limit nuts to no more than an ounce per day) ;that one can overlook the questionable reports of success and call your diet McDougall or Esselstyn. I personally think that people fail on the Fuhrman high vegetable, lower starch plan because it is expensive and requires a lot of chopping and blending and shopping and higher volume eating because of the absence of starches
and not because of the diet itself.
