Has anyone done this program for 10 days? Its where you basically eat the same starch for 10 days, breakfast, lunch, and dinner, with added veggies and fruits.

You add no fat to your food. You can prepare the starch in any number of ways. Say, you chose the potato for your starch, you could have hashbrowns for breakfast, along with some fuit.

Lunch could be a baked potato or mashed potatoes, along with any veggies/or fuit.

Dinner the same, maybe potato soup and salad.

If you 've done this program, how much weight did you lose? And was it difficult for you to stick to the same starch for that long of time. Of course there are so many other types of starchs one could choose from, I was using the potato as an example.

I've known many people who have used the McDougall plan as a long term plan as well as those who have used the jump start type plans they have. I've never done it myself, I like Eat to Live a bit better which is more of a legumes, veggies, fruit based diet.

The thing to remember is that what you do after the 10 days is the important thing.
