This is definitely their best recipe collection for supporting the McDougall program. It is also one of the few ALL VEGAN cookbooks out there so vegans who aren't into following the program will still appreciate the effort.
The recipes were not hard to make and did not use any strange ingredients. They are pretty basic and should appeal to the average palate and the most basic of cooks. The goal with this book was not gourmet cookery, but simple, fast, effective, and relatively tasty food. I think that overall they achieved that goal and the time estimates for how long a recipe will take are pretty much accurate.
The recipes are set up with lots of room to write your own adjustments in the margins, the illustrations are pleasant but low-key so as not to overpower the text. It is a nice size and lays flat, important to me with a cookbook! Small tidbit articles pepper the book for fun info, but those do not overshadow the recipes. Afterall, a cookbook is about the recipes, not anything else!
The recipes are divided up into useful categories like "main dishes" or "bean dishes" so they are not hard to find. Often the other McDougall books seem to lean too much to southwest or tex-mex type recipes which can put anyone who is NOT a tex-mex lover off. This book has a better balance between different kinds of recipes -- italian, asian, mexican etc. MUCH better! But do look at the other cookbooks for more recipes or if you are a tex-mex fan.
More advanced vegan cooks might want to skip it, since it is truly basic stuff, but it may not hurt to peek at it anyway.

I would first like to say that this isn't actually a "diet." It's a healthier way of living. Though I do think that 10 grams of fat should probably be upped to about 20. Also, to the person who said, "my body needs the amino acids in animal proteins to function properly" is rather uneducated - all the amino acids in proteins can be found in all plant sources. Protein deficiency, especially in the western world, is highly rare, even in the Vegan population. It's the *last* thing we need to worry about. At any rate, I am excited to try the other McDougal books as well.

This was the first Mcdougall book I bought. The recipies take only 15 minutes or less to prepare and the taste amazing. If you buy only one Mcdougall book it should be this one. The ingredients are also very easy to find, unlike other vegetarian cookbooks that have you buying things only from natural foodstores. I ended up losing 40 pounds in 4 months by using this book and Dr. Mcdougall's other ones.

I loved the McDougall Plan, but found it really hard to keep up with until I found this book. Now it is the easiest, most delicious way to lose weight and have energy.

It's wonderful to finally find a healthy vegetarian cookbook with easy to prepare meals, and easy to find ingredients! I was skeptical at first about cooking without oil, but it actually tastes better, and I feel lots better too. I also wasn't sure about giving up dairy, since I love cheese, but I haven't missed it yet, and don't think I ever will! Besides feeling and looking better, we're also saving money on our weekly grocery bill.

I love the idea of a vegan lifestyle. I followed McDougall's plan for almost a year. If it had been just me, I would have found it much easier to do. But as a busy mom with a dedicated carnivore for a husband, it became too hard to keep up with. I also question the concept of keeping one's fat intake to 10 grams a day or less. I found my body needed more to keep my hair and skin healthy. As well, my system needs the amino acids found in animal proteins to keep functioning properly. But all in all, for what it is, this book (and plan) is the gold standard, and can be of real benefit to many people. The recipies are easy and delicious, and easy to follow. I still use some of them to this day.

I'm always looking for fast, easy, and nutritious meals to make after work, and this cookbook fills that need. While I don't always follow a diet as strict as the McDougall's, the recipes make it so simple there's almost no excuse! The recipes also lend themselves to the addition of meat, for my non-vegetarian husband.
I highly recommend this book. I think it would be an excellent cookbook for a new vegetarian, since the recipes are so simple and nutritionally balanced.

The diet works - I quickly lost 30 pounds and kept with it for about a year. Unfortunately, I found the recipes very boring and not particularly good. I hate to cook, so the title of the book was appealing. But I have to say, there are only so many ways you can put beans, corn, and tomatoes together. Ultimately I quit the diet, gained back all the weight and then some. I got to the point where I could not stand the thought of stomaching one more of these recipes. I have been a vegan for several years - and so I was already accustomed to eating a plant based diet. Quick and easy - yes, but I would argue the delicious.

I stand by my previous review, and wish to correct the previous reviewer who stated that "all the amino acids in proteins can be found in all plant sources". This is *completely* wrong. And as Manager of the Natural Medicine Forum on CompuServe for the past six years, I can speak with some authority on this, and am far from being "rather uneducated", as that reviewer stated.
The amino acid L-Carnitine can ONLY be obtained from animal foods (see "The Real Vitamin & Mineral Book" by Lieberman & Bruning for more details on this). One cannot obtain L-Carnitine from vegetable sources. It can be synthesized from them, but only if the body has enough vitamin c, niacin, vitamin B6, iron, and the amino acid L-Lysine. And because cereal grains such as corn, wheat and rice - mainstays of many vegetarian diets, are low in L-Lysine, the vegetatian's ability to synthesize carnitine may be compromised. The cooking of these grains destroys L-Lysine entirely.
So, I stand by my original statement that the eating plan presented in this book, while excellent for some, does not necessarily work for all, and some vegans may experience a lack of certain essential amino acids, L-Carnitine being one, as I did.
