I am off insulin and pills. I am down to 190 pounds, a total weight loss of about 100 pounds in 9 months, and I have lost 13 inches off my waist. I am a new person—my level of confidence and self esteem are at a heightened level that I had not felt in decades.
— Scott Raphael, N.D.: Type-2 Diabetes, Obesity
Currently, I’m very steadily losing about one to two lbs a week. I’m thrilled to be in control again and headed to my goal weight. I don’t count calories, which is something I had done in the past with little success and a lot of misery. I eat as much as I want of the right kinds of food that give me energy and keep me satisfied. After meals I don’t feel sluggish but rather energized and rejuvenated.

As I ate the food my body desired, my unhealthy cravings for sugar, salt and fat dissipated. It was amazing. As my weight decreased, my energy level and feeling of wellness increased.
Two years later, I’ve lost over 70 pounds and have never been healthier or happier.

McDougall's Medicine:  Fighting Back The Big Fat Lies With Fad-Free Truth

The truth is simple and undeniable: the financial interests of big industries undermine the health and happiness of you and your family. The only way you can effectively fight these damaging forces is to become informed and then take appropriate actions. Your goal should be to get as far away as possible from the medical business. The only way to safely accomplish this is to become healthy. Sick people take medications and require surgeries – healthy people do not. You are not a helpless victim, and disease and obesity are not inevitable – and both of these undesirable conditions can be cured. McDougall’s Medicine always works for people at risk for, and suffering with, common diseases of diet and lifestyle. Now is the right time to make the change.


It is no coincidence that the same diet that helps prevent or cure diabetes also causes effortless weight loss, lowers cholesterol and triglycerides, cleans out the arteries, and returns the body to excellent function. But no matter how much research appears saying the same thing over and over again, the tide is unlikely to change because of the economic incentives for the medical establishment of continued illness and profitable treatments.
