McDougall's Maximum Weight Loss Book doesn't allow many foods that his other
books allow. I like the salads and some of the side dishes. I find the
maximum weight loss plan too difficult to follow. I like my breads,
pastas, and sweets. His other cookbooks have more variety. As in all his
books, adjust the spices to your liking. I find many of their recipes too
bland and others too spicy. Good luck.
