Great audio book that discusses healthy living

I really enjoyed this book. The reader was great. There are some drawbacks in having this information in audiobook form (have both the audio and kindle book). The best part of having audio book is that you can get this information on the go. I use the audiobook (which I've listened to sections a couple of times) to remind myself of what I'm working on with my health and eating. Great resource!

Thanks for the LIFELINE

This is a LIFELINE. Big Dr. Mc.D. fan here and I'm planning on writing a book about his work!! Too bad the media is allergic to reporting actual results, most of the time... People don't know that these success stories number in the 100's of thousands. This is a great, lifesaving program that anyone can follow if they really want to do a "180!" and keep their results long term. A bit of a learning curve--yes, a bit of a process--yes, but so simple compared to other plans that don't work and/or aren't sustainable.
This one IS. And SO worth it.

The McDougall Program

I found the book to be very educational. I just love John and Mary and have been a plant based vegan/ starchivore since 2015. There are tons of foods to eat on this diet. I would read it again and again!

Loaded with wisdom

I am so exxited to apply these principlea to my current plant based eating. I'm trying to drop the last few extra pounds that I carry around from years of eating the SAD, Standard American Diet. I am confident that the information found in this book will bring success to this next phase of my journey.

Repetitive

This is the first audio book that I actually could not stand to finish. He repeated himself so many times in the beginning of the book. The same points and phrases over and over.

Easy, delicious, and satisfying!

Not only do I have more energy and stamina following this delicious and satisfying way of eating, I also have the satisfaction of watching the pounds glide off and the confidence that I am following the best possible prescription for avoiding the diseases that our western way of eating promotes.
