McDougall Weekend Report

Eighty people enjoyed and profited from this past weekend at the McDougall Clinic in Santa Rosa, California.  The food was fabulous, as usual (see the menus and recipe guide below) and all of the McDougall Staff – John, Mary, Doug and Jill gave outstanding performances, which were successfully recorded for our new DVD series (4 DVDs, 3 units).

Our next weekend will be an “Advanced Study Weekend” with guest lecturers on January 28 to 30, 2005.

Our next 10-day McDougall Program (live-in) will be held November 11-21, 2004.

A Special 10-day Maximum Weight Loss Program will be held January 14-23, 2005


These educational DVDs will be available by Christmas of 2004 – they will make treasured gifts for you and your health-deprived friends.  Plus, order now and take advantage of the preproduction prices.

This is an fabulous offer because these are the exact lectures that have been given at the 10-day live-in McDougall Program in Santa Rosa, California over the past 2 ½ years (Jill’s are slightly revised for her DVD).

These are not the same lectures found in the basic McDougall educational program:  Dr. McDougall’s Total Health Solution for the 21st Century.  Even though I would recommend that you watch this basic course first, the new DVDs stand on their own, and provide an exceptional education for the novice trying to change his or her personal diet, as well as for the professional wishing to enhance his or her basic knowledge of nutrition.

You can receive a preproduction sale price on all or any of these DVDs by ordering now – the offer is good until the release of the DVDs which is expected at the end of November.
