I'm very interested in trying this plan, but I have questions about the
difference between his 12 day plan and the maximum weight loss diet.
Basically, what are the differences between the two... and after the 12 day
plan is one supposed to switch over to m.w.l. or what?
12 DAY IS A SORT OF AN INTRO. MWL IS STRICTER--NO PROCESSED FOODS AT ALL,
JUST VEG, GRAIN, POTATOES, A LITTLE FRUIT. 12 DAY AND OTHER BOOKS ALLOW
FLOUR PRODUCTS. 12 DAYS GETS YOU STARTED--YOU LOSE WEIGHT, FEEL BETTER AND
CHANGE YOUR LIFE.
Also, as far as forbidden foods -- I'm clear on the "no animal products"
concept. I'm not sure where the line is drawn as far as grains go -- is
regular pasta okay, for example? Also, is coffee forbidden, if so, why?
PASTA IS OUT FOR THE MWL. THE OTHER BOOK ALLOWS PASTA, ENCOURAGES WHOLE
GRAIN PASTA (DECECCO ISN'T BAD) IN PARTICULAR. HE DOESN'T FORBID COFFEE
ALTHOUGH ENCOURAGES USING HERB TEA INSTEAD. IN MWL I THINK HE ENCOURAGES IT
AS A WEIGHT LOSS AID BUT OVERALL DOESN'T CONSIDER IT TERRIBLY GOOD FOR YOU.
(I MCDOUGALL. I STILL DRINK COFFEE!)
I'm hoping to get some information from some of you kind folks... I should
probably buy his book but right now I'm on a *really* tight budget so I
thought I could at least get the basics from the list.
TRY YOUR LOCAL LIBRARY. THAT'S WHERE I FIRST "DISCOVERED" HIM.
SORRY ABOUT THE CAPS--DIDN'T HAVE EASIER WAY TO SHOW CONTRAST!
