Dr. McDougall Diet for Healing?

Recommended Posts

I would like to hear some success stories from anyone using this diet as a way to heal your body. I have recently been diagnosed with Sjogren's and I started this diet, but I'm too afraid not to take my meds because it was ruining my life.


Any encouragement or personal experience stories would be greatly appreciated! Even non-success stories welcome!

I don't know if this will help you or not, but Venus Williams has the same condition as you and she switched her diet to a raw vegan diet and claims she's never felt better. That might be something to look into, or at least incorporating it into your current diet.

I ate the McDougal way 20 years ago and felt fantastic! It is soooooo hugh carb, though. I much prefer The Body Ecology Diet but certainly do what your doctor is suggesting!


I do think you will notice you feel better while eating more healthily.



I actually did the body ecology diet last year. It was WAY too difficult for me. I really struggled with it. The only thing that keeps me going on McDougall's diet is the carbs! It really curbs the sugar cravings and I think as long as I keep it as whole grain as possible, it stays healthy. It really makes a lot of sense to me the way he describes our bodies and how they process food.
