Introduction to New McDougall Book The Starch Solution

This truth is simple and is, therefore, easy to explain. You must eat to live.  But the choice of what you eat is yours. There is an individual, specific diet that best supports the health, function, and longevity of each and every animal. The proper diet for human beings is based on starches. The more rice, corn, potatoes, sweet potatoes, and beans you eat, the trimmer and healthier you will be—and with those same food choices you will help save the Planet Earth too.

My recommendation for eating starches puts glazed looks on people’s faces, and many dismiss me as certifiably crazy. They think of starch as something used in the laundry to stiffen shirts.  Starch brings back memories of pasty bland-tasting goop, and white, airy Wonder Bread. Most disturbing is that nearly everyone believes starches are fattening and nutritionally inferior foods. Fortunately, common knowledge is completely wrong and the proof is right before your own eyes.


Report from the February 20-22, 2009
Advanced Study Weekend

Over 160 people attended this biannual McDougall event in Santa Rosa, California. As always the enthusiasm, education, food, and friendship were over the top—far greater than anyone expected.

Standing in the presence of T. Colin Campbell, PhD is almost a religious experience.  He got thundering ovations for his nutritional words of wisdom. Neil Nedley, MD gave two outstanding presentations, including information about his 10-day live-in program that treats depression with a 90% success rate. Pam Popper, PhD surprised and excited the audience with her experiences with the politics of nutrition and information on school lunch programs. Doug Lisle, PhD, Jeff Novick, RD, and John McDougall, MD provided their usual high quality entertaining information for the attendees.
