John McDougall, MD - A True Believer
Santa Rosa physician John McDougall, who suffered a stroke at age 18, became a household name in the 1980s after writing a string of best-selling diet and cookbooks. He has a new book out, "The Starch Solution."
Growing up in Detroit, John McDougall ate bacon and eggs for breakfast, cold cuts for lunch and lots of beef, pork and other meats for dinner.
This typical midwestern diet caught up to him when he suffered a massive stroke at 18.
"I was in the hospital for two weeks," he recalled. "By the time I was 22, I weighed 235 pounds. At age 24, I had major abdominal surgery."
Now, more than 40 years later and 60 pounds lighter, the physician and nutrition expert lives an active life in Santa Rosa with his wife, Mary.
