Not doing Eat to Live anymore

I have rejoined Dr. McDougalls website and feel much better and NOT as cranky! I went to the 3 day Celebrity Chef weekend in Santa Rosa and we ate for 21 hours out of 3 days!!! It was all delicious and I had the greatest time and met the nicest people. I hope to do more on this blog soon, as I have been a bit lax in posting! Ok...have taken the Dr.Fuhrman junk outta this..forget it, it is a cult!!!! I may have lost the right amount of weight but was miserable and tired of the nastygrams from the ultimate cult man so I discontinued his PAID member site. Dr McDougall has been around since 1983 and he is the best with a free member site and lots of supportive a free newsletter and great recipes. I have found most of his previous books on Amazon,, used bookstore and thrift shops. I figure those people are not around anymore or went back tot he SAD diet. I am to the point that I can't stand to look at or clean up after greasy animal food...yuck...Now I am not a vegetarian or vegan. If a lobster or shrimp or plate of steamer clams happened in front of me I will certainly welcome it...and take a break for a week! I have given up meat, poultry, pork, eggs, dairy, coffee, all oils except a dab of toasted sesame oil, and smoking. Beer is on my list of to do's.....but seafood is still calling me!!!!!! We are in Arizona for the summer and enjoying the heat????? but the shopping is amazing!

I need to review my posting of photos but they are all at

if you would like to see where we have been for the past 4 years!!

Hi Nancy, I enjoy your posts on the McD board. I also had a negative experience with Furhman about eight years ago. He's a jerk. Sent me a really, really nasty email when I asked why he was badmouthing Dean Ornish and John McDougall on his old website (he was loosely comparing them with the likes of Atkins in order to push his agenda). I have never spent a dime to enrich Furhman, and I never will. Dr. McDougall is all I need! Nice to "meet" you.
