    Oprah Show Today 02/25/02

    Just interested in your opinions - if any of you watched the Oprah show today - on the Dean Ornish (Dr.) diet? What did you all think of the show today?

    I did the low-fat thing about 3 years ago and lost a good 30 lbs. - have gained back about 10+ - would love to hear your thoughts.

    Hey, do we know this guy is going to be FAMOUS soon!!!!!!!

    Dean Ornish has been around for a while so I'm familiar with him and his work. His approach has worked well for heart patients, but it seems a little restrictive for most people to follow.

    I agree with SusanT...
    I think if you have a "condition" already, you're more motivated to stick with a program that will better your life; for the average person merely trying to lose weight....not sure this is the best way to go. Maybe a rotation thing where a few days you're doing an Ornish diet, then maybe 2 days of something else...you know, moderation and balance.
    I know some people have IGT and that much grain/cereal without fat to balance can have other issues (high triglycerides) ...
    I think lowish/moderate fat (good fat), adequate protein without overkill, lots of fruits and veggies and moderate amounts of grains/cereals should be fine. Remember, it's not what you eat as much as HOW MUCH you eat to lose weight...
    heart disease is another matter....
