Top 10 Tips for Max Weight Loss from Dr. McDougall

About the author


  1. Bread is actually only about 1,500 Calories Per Pound. You said 2,500 I believe which is the calorie density of chocolate.

  2. Weight loss is basically just calorie in and calorie out. Some of this advice I agree with, some of it I don't. Soup can be very high in calories and I wouldn't suggest eating it before a meal. May as well just drink your calories. Salad makes more sense. I also disagree with eliminating all animal products. I have difficulty getting enough protein and omega 3's. Fish is low calorie and high in protein and omega 3's. They've also been shown to lower your risks of cancer and heart disease. Cutting healthy fats entirely just sounds like a stupid idea. Seeds and nuts provide protein, omegas, and fiber as well. And just a side note about exercise. Biking burns twice as many calories as walking does. They also use less muscles and require less effort. So if you're just trying to get into exercise, even stationary biking in front of the TV would be a great way to do it. But this is just the 2 cents of someone who managed to lose 50lbs while recovering from a knee injury. Take from it what you will.

  3. I have a really hard time eating salads because I tend to choke on the greens, so I always have a smoothie with my meal to get my greens in. Will doing this stall my weightloss and make it so I cant hit my goal?

  4. Watch "Food Unwrapped- summer" on YouTube. Your processed carbs (e.g.: pasta) and smoothie recommendations are not true. Celery smoothie burns more calories and fettuccine has much lower GI than many other unprocessed foods.

  5. The more I try to find my way trough this jungle the more puzzled I get…. Sure fat is high in calories, but isn't it also esstial for us? Our body builds all of our hormones from fat…. Then with juicing, in the Gerseon Therapy you drink every hour a huge glass of it, and now it's bad? Here I hear salt is bad, in a talk from McDougall himself, he sais salt is good when it's not hidden in artificial foods. So what's right….. I'm a bit lost and irritated.

  6. That's so true, Last year I walked 8-13 miles a day including a moderate hike in a canyon and 2 hours at the gym doing cardio, weights and a workout class, ate sem-healthy but still drank a coke a day and the scale hardly budged. Now I'm stuck at home due to a back injury and can hardly move but I'm losing weight due to eating healthy whole foods such as fruit and vegetables and have lost more in a month than I did the 5 months I busted my ass off last year!!

  7. Hmmmm Tofu, if I am not mistaken it is less than 500 calls per pound. I eat Tofu every day. I put it on my salads and I prepare it in my air fryer.

  8. I might be very late to this video, but is there any chance I can see some research on the brisk walk 30 vs 60? Couldn't find anything on g00gle

  9. probably want a couple of tsp of flax meal to avoid risking omega 3 deficiency. I don't buy that a low fat wfpb diet automatically ensures enough omega 3. lots of vegans are deficient in omega 3. flax meal isn't addictive. A limit for that is better than eliminating it.

  10. This is very restrictive. I think I'm screwed. I'm going to have to calorie count sadly. Theres no way out

  11. Nice summation of the great work that Dr. McDougall does. Everyone should watch this video.

    The fact that terrible ketogenic/paleo/low-carb diets are the new fad is depressing. The answer is so simple… yet, as Dr. McDougall himself says: "People like to hear good news about their bad habits."

  12. Don't make veganism too difficult, more people will relapse. Supposed to make it as easy as possible ie no meat and dairy, limit/no processed food, eat lots of fruits and veggies, grains and starchie foods. The moment you start making all these rules and regulations, suggestions and limits, you will lose more people and that means more dead animals and big pharma gets bigger.

  13. I am 315lbs. I think this will work for me. I was vegan and reverted back. Do you have a chart or something I can refer back to when planning meals and eating? If so can you sent it to me?
