Join Dr. McDougall along with fellow McDougallers in lively discussions and share your opinions.
It is coming up on my One Year Anniversary for finding Dr. McDougall, this website, these forums, and the words I wrote in the post above.Norm wrote: I know many will say I need to commit myself 100% to the "program" right away, but I simply cannot do that. I cannot change almost a half century of extreme bad habits overnight. I've come a long, long way in a fairly short amount of time, and I have a long, long way to go. I have to take these steps one at a time and not feel rushed or pushed.
I would say that it is a safe bet that 95% of my calories are McDougall compliant, and I'd bet that if I carefully analyze every calorie I consumed it'd average closer to 98%, month in, month out. I know I go days, and sometimes weeks 100% compliant.lmggallagher wrote:I like to read your other posts, but I can't say that I have been paying close attention to what you're eating now. I am wondering if you follow the guidelines closely now (as opposed to saying strictly) or have your own variation on the theme?

I hope people can see that no matter what others respond, no matter who they are, that one can be successful in this WOE. Part of me wishes I would have never seen this thread as I am disappointed.
I learned years ago in AA not to judge if one will be successful or not. It seems the ones I thought were going to do great, struggled and the ones I thought were never going to get sober, did. Good thing I am not in charge.
Thank you John!JohnLarson wrote:Norm, I just want to say I am glad you are part of this web site.
I assume there are parts of you that understand why I've left this thread here and not asked for it to be removed.JohnLarson wrote: Part of me wishes I would have never seen this thread as I am disappointed.
I do not like to look at it as I did it >MY< way. My way got me where I was, almost 500 pounds and in poor health, unable to work, unable to function. I watched the Starch Solution Video and took it to heart. Dr. McDougall said that the more starch I ate and the less meat I ate the healthier I'd be. He said it wasn't an "all or nothing" thing. I took him at his words and in a VERY SHORT PERIOD of time transitioned to 95% compliance. I ate more rice. Less meat. I ate more potatoes. Less dairy. I ate more oats, less oil. Until one day I ate no meat, dairy, or oil.janluvs2heel wrote: But so glad that he did stick around & he can sing along with Frank Sinatra, He did it his way!!
