Has anyone had any luck doing McDougall part-time? Here is my problem: I
feel that his way of eating is great, but it is a bit too stringent for me.
(BTW, I read the book. But I want to know if there are any "real people"
with success on a part-time McD program.) I miss comfort foods like
tortillas and pasta. However, I have about 25lbs to lose. So I really
want to make an effort. I was thinking of doing it all week, but giving
myself one lunch and one dinner on the weekend to "splurge" on non-McD
items (I'm not talking fetuccini alfredo here, but a low-fat quesadilla).
Can anyone offer any advice? >>
If you aren't following Max Weight Loss you can eat Pasta. And he has a
wonderful recipe for veg burritos in one of his books. I found max weight
loss helpful but a little strict. And i still did loose the 25 pounds i
needed to, although it took a few months... Suggest eating somethng high
fiber with the processed foods to offset the loss of fiber in the refined
product. Note that Mirkin (who is not much different than Ornish in terms of
food except he does permit fish) does allow you a 19 meal approach (if you
are good for 19 meals a week...).
