I know! Aren't you all just JEALOUS???? ;-) I'm sure I
acted like a complete idiot with Dr. McDougall, but I was
just so amazed to be talking with him! Before the seminar,
he actually sat down with my husband and me for 15 minutes
for a private conversation! The best part of this was when
he said I'm a "slim woman" who doesn't need to lose any more
weight; (I lost 85 pounds in 1997). The funniest thing was
when my husband joked with him saying, "I'm Italian. We
NEED olive oil." I just about fell over.
To answer your questions, his seminar was on "5 Dietary
Myths", which I'm sure you're all familiar with. It was
great hearing/seeing him in person because I've read all of
He wasn't selling ANYthing. Unlike when I saw Dr. Barnard,
Dr. McDougall did not have a stack of books to sell and
sign. I brought my MWL book for him to sign, though. He
wrote: "To Sheri, looking great and never hungry. J.
The reason he was at the fair was to do 2 seminars. His
second one on Sunday was about disease treatment/prevention,
I think. Anyway, if he's anywhere near you, please see
him. I think he finally got through to my husband. On the
way home in the car, he said, "I think I'll change my
special meal requests on airplanes to vegetarian." Hurrah!
