Kate, great comments! I agree re Dr. McDougall's enthusiasm, which is one of the many things I love about him!
Jim, great recaps and it was great to see you and Terri again.
Melanie Joy's talk was incredibly powerful, and extremely important. I am so grateful for the work she is doing. It is critical.
Regarding Fuhrman and McDougall's similiarities and differences, in Dr. Fuhrman's last talk he spelled out what to eat in a day, and aside from a half cup of beans, there really isn't much starch (unless I'm missing something?). He said to eat beans, fruit, a large salad, nuts & seeds, mushrooms or onions and a large serving of steamed vegetables and I think he specified green ones. No grains at all. Dr. McDougall keeps it simpler, and I agree with his view that that's key to more people adopting better ways of eating. Dr. Fuhrman was very interesting and fun to listen to. Everyone's sense of humor was great!
I consider myself very fortunate when I'm able to attend a McDougall event! They are always inspiring, educational, FUN and just plain awesome!
