I have been eating the McDougall way for about six months and am slowly gaining weight!! I have put on 8 lbs. I was riding a bike and slow jogging just before I started McDougall but injured my leg and stopped for 3 months. I am riding a recubant bike at home for 30 minsper day 5 days or more per week. I do like to eat and missed rice and potatoes and such. I think I eat approx 2-3 cups of brown rice per day and some days I eat 1 cup of beans or a lg baked potato and lots of veggies twice per day. I eat about half my meal in veggies and just increased it to 3/4 of my meal. I do drink a glass of merlot wine maybe twice per week.Once everyother week I make homemade bread and have a thick slice I love rice cakes and eat some daily. I drink green smoothies every morning with spinach kale banana beet blueberries and then snack on carrots, celey and apples. My husband says I am not eatting enough and to increase exercise. I also need to drink more water. I am 52 yrs old and I feel I eat too much for my 5 ft 1 1/2 inch size.
HELP!!! What do I do? When i was 100% Raw Vegan I never had to count calories or watch what I ate. In fact I made sure I ate avocado and olinves otherwise I got too skinny!
