Heh.  I'm a vegetarian and I wouldn't be able to bear that program.
To be fair to him, though, he only suggests the MWL program for those
who don't lose the weight they want on his regular program -- e.g. for
stubborn cases. 

I love whole quinoa and other grains, but when it comes to pasta, I'm
afraid I have to have mine refined.  And the idea of a diet totally
without pasta, not even whole wheat pasta ...  Whew! I'll pass.

But, I'm a large woman who doesn't want to lose weight, so none of
this is an issue for me.  I eat low fat vegetarian (and try to eat
very low fat most of the time) because I like the food and because my
body feels better when I do.  I do wish those of you who do wish to
lose weight success.  I understand it's very difficult, though I know
a number of people who have successfully lost weight and kept it off,
so it's not an unattainable goal.
