The fundamentals of the McDougall Program are simple yet difficult to implement – we understand how hard it can be to make lifestyle changes.

In 1986, Dr. John and Mary McDougall founded the McDougall Program to help people cure their illnesses instead of poorly managing them with medications. This life-saving medical program has helped thousands of patients, empowering them with the knowledge they need to add vibrant years to their lives.

The McDougall Program has traditionally been an in-person program and is now 100% virtual. This offers many benefits, some of which include:

  • Learning from the comfort of your home, saving on travel expenses and time
  • Practice making starch-based meals in your own kitchen, setting you up for long-term success
  • The chance to ask us anything. We’ll be right there in your home (virtually) to answer questions and make suggestions, from food products to kitchen equipment and much more

Through education and compassionate care, we’ll be with you every step of the way for you to make positive changes to your health – this time, for good.
