Glycemic Index – Not Ready for Prime Time

"Every time I hear about glycemic index want to puke," complains Tiffany, one of my nutritionally-oriented friends. "Then I ask the person who is telling me how bad potatoes are if they even know what glycemic index means. They usually tell me glycemic index means the food is high in sugar."


More on Mary's Mini-McDougall Diet®

Last month's newsletter about our simplified version of the McDougall Diet created much interest and many questions.  Mary's Mini-McDougall Diet® is offered as a way to ease the learning curve for those just starting our program and a means to increase the efficiency of the regular McDougall Diet by simplifying food choices.  The diet follows the basic principles of the McDougall Program: starch-based with the addition of fruits and vegetables, but limits food choices to one kind of starch and repetitive selections of green and yellow vegetables and fruits.  The same starch and vegetables are eaten everyday. You can read about the diet in the June 2006 McDougall Newsletter.


Report on the Celebrity Chef Weekend of July 14 to 16, 2006

Over 70 people attended the first celebrity chef weekend.  They sat glued to their seats as experts from around the country dished out high quality entertainment and education.  The food was all low-fat vegan, but it was clear to all this was not a maximum weight loss weekend.  They ate and they ate during presentations and then they ate some more during regularly scheduled meals.
