Mind you, I said 'food' as in ONE treat not a whole dinner. So if it's a holiday, eat an otherwise all McDougall meal and maybe have a small piece of pumpkin pie. Or a piece of cake on your birthday. So long as the treats are rare occurrences and the rest of the meal is low in fat you can relax and enjoy life. The idea is you don't make a big deal out of the occasional treat. It is NOT an excuse to go all hog wild and pig out for the rest of the week. It looks like Bill's doing fine to me.

I've seen some blogs mention how the Ornish diet failed Clinton in past years, even though Clinton clearly did not follow Ornish's advice.
