MWL = Maximum Weight Loss
(McDougall program to excelerate weight loss by limiting certain foods that are allowed on the regular program)
This way of eating is simple. Fat and meat make people sick. Don't eat them. (That also includes all dairy and eggs, olive oil, butter, etc.)
What's left to eat? All plants (fruit or vegies) to be enjoyed, but never with added fat or oil. There are some plants w/natural fats --nuts, avocado, coconut, soy...use discretion and eat in moderation or totally omit.
Here is my favorite list of what to eat every day:
greens, berries; whole grains (especially oats); beans;
flax seed (whole and ground); cinnamon, garlic, onion,
a variety of other vegetables (especially potatoes) and fruit
If eating pasta, make sure it's a whole grain (and w/o eggs)
To substitute for milk, use non-dairy milks such as rice, soy, hemp, almond "milks."
Simplicity is good. Eat until you're full and then wait until you're hungry again before eating again. You'll lose weight and disease while never being deprived or starving like on regular diets.
Also, walk 15 minutes one way and then walk home again.
Good luck and welcome
