    Yaaaaa, sure has been working for me so far.

    First time in my 58 years I haven't gained back any lost weight in almost three years since plant-based diet.

    It's interesting that they're mentioning the cost issue now. When I shop & walk by the meat/fish section of the market & look at the prices, I'm grateful I don't eat much of it. Beans & produce are WAY cheaper.

    Leaves more money left over..........for GAS.

    EG, you see at the top of the page that it was a starch based diet. I surely would like to know what they are giving the people to eat.

    Hi Dolores,

    I believe Dr. McDougall is big in the program. I didn't see it on the McDougall website, but I recall it was there. Excellent program.
