This is in response to Debbie Cowherd's question: 

 I am (was?) pretty sure that soy products are on the "no

You are correct, the MWLP does eliminate all soy products simply because
McDougall says they are higher in fat.  He does suggest eating other legumes
though, i.e. lentil, black beans, etc.  It is important to remember to keep in
mind the ratio of yellow/green vegetables to grains when determining the time
period with which to lose the weight.  He states that you can lose weight faster
if you keep the ratio 3:1.  Don't forget to incorporate a workout plan with
weight training as well.
