Group Name: McDougall/Vegan/Vegetarian Diet1
Members: 4
Location: Cambridge, MA 02140

Goals: Get healthy first! Weightloss will follow!! (not the other way around) Find healthy, sensible ways to enjoy food while eating right. Make exercise a regular and fulfilling part of our weeks

Profile: For anyone interested in following the McDougall low-fat vegan diet or any other veggie focused diet such as Eat to Live by Dr. Fuhrman. The results are great from both programs. An inspirational story can be found here: This team is a place for fellow PeerTrainer members who want to jump start their weightloss and health to share recipes and ideas as well as help each other tackle obstacles and problems along the way. You don't have to be a die hard vegan to join (or even a vegetarian), just willing to try to follow the program to the best of your ability, recognizing that we'll all slip up along the way--it's the getting back on track that counts!

Members profiles:
I'm 38, a mother of two (4 1/2 yrs, 20 mos), and a full-time journalist and editor. I have been a vegetarian for almost half my life. I am a Weight Watchers lifetime member but have had a hard time getting back to the program since having kids. I lost 30 pounds on WW but before I joined Peer Trainer, I was hovering about 5 pounds above my lowest weight, with some ups and downs.

For most of 2006, on Peer Trainer, I hovered just below my WW goal, and once or twice even got down to 140, my true weight goal.

In March, 2012, I came back to PT. I'm currently around 152 pounds.

I'm 5'7" and I need to lose ~100lbs I used to be a size six ages ago. I love to ski, dance, ice skate and swim. I am a competitive swimmer and just getting back into shape so I can compete again.

I am a 31 year old mother of 2 boys, 19 months and 4 months. I have been married to my high-school sweatheart for 3 1/2 years. I teach elementary school art.

44 year old married male with 2 small children. I am eager to read and learn more of the McDougall diet along with ideas and suggestions on how to follow and maintain the diet on an everyday basis.
