  • You can get free meal plans and recipes from Dr. McDougall, or find his books at your local library:

    Eat an apple or a big pile of vegetables before meals

  • check out my blog! This is what I feed my family. It's gluten-free bc I'm TTC and gluten is a real pester-pants when it comes to hormones.

    Many of the recipes are low-fat, all use healthy fats when fats are used, and I have a lot of snack options.

  • I also am trying to lose over 100 pounds and so far I feel like I am doing good. I have went out and gotten tons of low fat cookbooks but my absolute favorite is The Biggest Losers Family cookbook. It has a lot a recipes that are awsome when it comes to taste and lets face it we eat cause we love what it tastes like. There are many items that even my picky eating children love to eat (2 boys 11 & 3). Good luck on your journey!;)
