Second, what I am criticizing is the way you present your WOE here. You've said that you routinely eat shellfish, so you're not a compliant McDougaller
Dr. Mcdougall eats turkey, so I guess he's out too
you also routinely post recipes that should be considered feast food for most people on this forum (heavy on tofu, nuts, etc.
I hope I've explained that sufficiently above in relation to my husband's diabetes, but I'll also note that tofu and nuts are both permitted foods in the McDougall diet, for healthy people of normal weight. You'll notice that I didn't post any recipes in the MWL section using them.
Then you turn around and post in MWL (which you do not follow!) a suggestion that is more akin to a traditional "starvation diet" than to this WOE.
My husband followed it for six months (admittedly with time off for good behavior) and I'm the one who prepares the food around here so I'm more than familiar with the MWL program. I didn't suggest people should live on salad, I thought it was clear that my salad dinner was meant for those times when you want to give your weightloss a kick start. Just because it wouldn't work for you doesn't mean that the idea should be immediately discarded.
IMO many of your posts muddy the waters considerably, and THAT is my concern.
How about giving people some credit for having basic intelligence? Like Dr. McDougall says, it's not a religion, although I wonder how you see this WOE. In the real world, most people would consider someone like myself who doesn't eat any meat or dairy, or oils, as a radical, but apparently my WOE isn't good enough to be made to feel welcome by you. Which is a shame, because I've already been alienated from the folks at the diabetes forum I was on because I was a vegan. I think we should be sticking together, not judging one another.
