This is not a "hyped" title for dramatics. It is an actual fact that patients who went on Dr. John McDougall's 10 day immersion program with UNLIMITED amounts of buffet style starch-rich plant food dropped in 7 days an average of 3 lbs, total cholesterol by 22 mg/dL systolic blood pressure 8 mm Hg and diastolic blood pressure by 4 mm Hg.
The unlimited diet was roughly 7% fat, 12% protein, and 81% carbohydrate by calorie. It's whole food plant-based with no added oil. Medications had to be cut the first night of the program, especially diabetic andhypertensive medications otherwise blood pressures and blood sugars would drop to low and the patients would have obvious adverse health effects.
Also the same diet approach (no limit, whole food, low-fat plant based diet approach)
in the BROAD Study in New Zealand showed participants lost an average of 11.5 Kg (25.3 pounds) at one year. This is the largest weight loss of any randomized control trial (RCT) where participants had NO RESTRICTION on calories and were not required to exercise.
But its UNPROCESSED carbohydrate WITHOUT ADDED OILS. You won't get the same
results with processed carbohydrates or added oils.
So personally, as a clinician, I would love to see all my patients go through his 10 day
intensive where you are fed three meals per day and have the patients get educated
on how to prepare the foods without the stress of worrying about it initially.
Now in an "ideal" "ideal" world I would have patients go on Dr. Brooke Goldner's
green smoothie (64 oz of 75% packed greens/ 25% fruit / 1/4-1/2 cup flax or chia seed)
raw food diet x 1 month then transition to the whole-food diet above. You would
see a dramatic reduction in a wide variety of complaints and conditions.
"Us" health professionals wouldn't have half the patients we have because they would
be cured. And the truth is you can do the above very safely getting Dr. Goldner's
super fast read book "Goodbye Lupus" book right now and reading any one of Dr. McDougall's books - But start with "The Healthiest Diet on the Planet".
The order to follow the program would be to do a month or two on Dr. Goldner's diet
and then transition to a Dr. McDougall whole food plant-based diet....If that happened
I along with other health professionals would have to find new jobs :))!
