Jim H. Got off Statins After Going Starch-Based

Updated August 18, 2022


Jim suffered from a heart attack and was put on statins which made his joints ache. In the summer of 2021, Jim joined the 12-Day McDougall Program to safely get off his statins. He describes his experience as a “home run”!

Now Jim’s aches are a thing of the past since he was successfully taken off his statins with the professional medical help of the McDougall team. Jim’s blood test results are great, his cholesterol is low and as a bonus, he’s lost the 10 pounds he’s been trying to lose for 20 years!

As Dr. McDougall and the entire team promises, eating a whole food, starch-based diet allows Jim – and everyone else following this lifestyle – to eat whatever he wants (of starchy foods with the additional of fruits and vegetables), eat whenever he wants and as much as he wants.
