The First McDougall Introductory Weekend
Don’t Miss the Next Event!

Sixty people traveled – some more than 3500 miles – from as far away as Alaska, Georgia, and Pennsylvania – to discover the excitement of the McDougall Program during the weekend of January 23 to 25, 2004.  Possibly the biggest surprise for them was to have John and Mary McDougall with them all weekend – why would the McDougalls miss the fun, the pleasure of meeting nice people, and the great meals?

The dessert table was the most popular, with chocolate brownies, Soy Dream ice cream, carrot cake, and apple crisp with vanilla cream sauce.  However, no one got dessert until they finished their minestrone soup, lasagna, salad, sweet potatoes, and salad on Friday evening; and their mashed potatoes, portobello mushrooms, stuffing, green beans, salad, and stuffed mushrooms on Saturday evening. 

For lunch on Saturday they enjoyed soup, pizzas and pasta salads; and Sunday lunch was delicious burgers, chili, and grain and bean salads.  Even the children who attended loved the meals!

All of the lecture material was new to attendees.  Most people had heard other lectures by John and Mary before – so they knew they were going to be well entertained and educated.  However, the most pleasant surprise was Dr. Doug Lisle (a doctor of psychology with an important message and a fabulous sense of humor).  His three lectures on the “Pleasure Trap” gave participants a clear understanding of why they have been making destructive choices at the dinner table. Our dietitian, Jill Nussinow, presented two outstanding food demonstrations on the basics of the McDougall Diet.  Her delicious samples left many people too full to appreciate lunch.

Overall, the weekend was such a big success that most people commented they would be attending the next Alumni Weekend on May 14,15,and 16, and the next Introductory Weekend on July 9,10, and 11 – there is so much to learn and enjoy.  Plus, where else can you get such an inexpensive weekend in Northern California?  You might have paid this much for one night’s room only at a similar resort.

Don’t Delay!  You can get started on a better, trimmer life with the McDougall Program by joining us for a 10-day live-in program with medical care by Dr. McDougall.  Dates (2004):  February 6-15, March 12-21, April 23 to May 2, June 11-20, and August 13-22.
