  • Thank you, Chef AJ for having these two on. Dr. Mcdougall is the very first doctor I found to help me eat healthy. Although, through the death of my Mom & Husband, I would briefly slide back, I always found my way back. This time it’s been almost 4 years & I’m sticking with it. I’m 62 & not only am I in good health (no meds), normal weight & feeling great, the bonus is I started running 4 years ago & still going strong! It’s been an excellent outlet for getting through anxiety, depression & this pandemic. I love you guys & I have all of your books, too. So grateful for you. Peace.

  • Wow what an amazing legacy interview. This is an important document. Praise to Chef AJ for getting such an interesting and intimate conversation from these two greats.

  • Love Mary’s diet philosophy. The KISS method to great health. Breakfast: Hash brown potatoes, Lunch: Baked potatoes, Dinner: Mashed potatoes. Too many people overthink. Just keep it simple. Well done AJ.

  • Hi Chef AJ, I was not able to listen to the podcast live. I live in Melbourne Florida and wanted to know if Dr McDougall or you knows of any doctors in my area that espouse his program. Thank you!

  • These people are the BEST! Makes me wonder why Dr McDougall is overlooked on some of the big program panels. He’s dedicated his life to making people healthier by eating properly. Love this man.

  • It was Dr. M’s statement about rice corn potatoes and sweet potatoes that made me wfpb! as a Filipino, rice have been demonized by many, thinking it was the one making them fat,. Rice is LIFE!
    Regards to the most adorable couple,.

  • These folks are great!!��
    The fact that there’s all the free recipes and information on the McDougall website is indicative of the kind of people they are….compassionate and caring..thank you������

  • This is truly the best fitness channel on YouTube but can you guys start doing vlogs again because they were the only thing that motivates me to live a healthy lifestyle and after you stopped vlogging I lost motivation and stopped working out and started eating crap therefore gained 30 pounds. I hope you accept my request of returning to vlogging.

  • This video is so amazing and you look even that much more amazing! I’ve been working on my body and health and this is so helpful! Thank you for the support on my recent video, I hope we can subscribe to each other and I look forward to your videos ��

  • Hands down… the best interview you have done Chef AJ!!! I could listen to Mary talk all day long…she is such a wealth of information. Please beg her to come back and cook some of her favorite simple meals. That would be soooo awesome!! I just love the Mcdougalls sooooooooooo much!!!!!

  • I love how clear and white plant based eaters eyes are. As most people age the whites of their eyes usually turn red or yellow and the glow goes out of them. It is a sign of great health along with lovely skin…just look at these two glowing

  • Haha and you thought it was just going to be Mary! Mary doesnt mind John taking over but that’s how they roll ��Just goes to show that they are a team, I love how Mary has always been in the background supporting John (and John obviously supports and adores Mary). What a wonderful couple ��

  • Can you please share citations of these studies that show reduced insulin resistance of intermittent fasting for diabetics that is separate from simple caloric restriction and subsequent weight loss, as you seem to suggest? Preferably large sample human trials that are peer reviewed. Most such data that I search for seems inconclusive. Thank you.

  • What is an acceptable body fat percentage for women & vegans? How can one calculate an acceptable goal body weight? Do u have a video on using MyFitnessPal to track for intake?

  • Our absolute FAVORITES!!! Thanks for having them on. They are an incredible couple and they’ve helped so many. I am so thankful for them.

  • I need to learn how to eat like this. I’ve been mostly raw food with a large handful of nuts..almond milk…almond yogurt…no starch except oats. No salt or oil…i drink green tea..im really skinny w cholesterol around 140. But my blood pressure is sky high even w med. If this way of eating would just bring down my blood pressure…nothing ever has…but I would start cooking more if this starch diet would do it. And thank you sooo much for bringing us this wonderful interview.

  • What a great wife you are!! My hubby is pretty understanding also and eats whatever I make for him. He does cheat sometimes, but he is amazed by my control. Way to go! Great power couple!

  • Hi beautiful my friend wow beautiful channel ��today I upload healthy sugar free and oil free healthy oats laddus I hope you love it keep in touch ����

Mary, Dr. M, and AJ all helped me lose over 200 pounds! Thank You! P.S. Mary, you are a great speaker, I’ve seen all your online videos! Stay well, stay safe and God Bless!

  • Chef AJ thank you so much. You have unwittingly made here an historical record of two wonderful and important health Pioneers. It was such a priviledge to be privy to their personal stories and progress in “Making the Change” for their family and patients alike. I can’t tell you how much appreciation and love I am feeling right now, God bless you and your work. xxx

  • Doctor Macdougall, you mentioned just at the end, that you feel you had a guiding hand, guiding you through it. You are right the guiding hand has a name its God, & his son is Jesus. God has blessed you both with a long and satisfying life ��������

  • Thanks AJ for yet another great interview, such lovely people. Watching this eating my brown rice bowl with sweet potato, green beans and broccoli �� absolutely delicious ��

  • Very sweet… they seem wonderful… maybe next time Mary could do the interview on her own… I wanted to hear more from her �� all good. Thanks AJ! A wonderful record of a generous and selfless couple… lovely

  • As wonderful as the Starch Solution lifestyle turned out to be, THE BEST thing by far this legendary man ever did was marry this woman! Mary❤️

  • for 2 weeks I ate fruits, vegetables, green tea, water, unsalted nuts, and chicken.. I’ve never felt better..ever!!! I lost weight and gained energy like crazy, I felt amazing!!!

  • Love salad and I eat gluten free hehe

  • I have the same scale from Vanity Planet. Their products are very great and I thank you for having me try their stuff from the scale video.

  • I am 76 on no medications, I been on many different plant based diets. I was doing research on my grandson who is 6 just diagnosed with type one diabetes, and
    My research led me to a new world. Thank you

  • A few years ago I lost 35 pounds and weighed 150lbs at 5′ 8″ and people were always telling me to stop with the dieting you are way to thin…lol

  • Loved this, sandwich on a salad makes huge sense…so so good! Putting the fork down, true true. Btw, love the cute little clips you did, super cute! Subscribed, I would love support back xox

  • How I love these two extremely special people!!! I am eternally grateful to Dr. John and Mary McDougall. He lead me on the transitional journey solely through his first books and Mary gets just as much credit due to her wonderful, wholesome recipes that I still make. I’ve been a McDougallite for 16 years and I’ll be 70 on October 16th of this year.

    I so enjoy watching the McDougalls together in interviews. They are such a wonderful couple. This made my day!! Thank you, A.J. for hosting this interview today!

  • Delightful! They are so REAL and communicate life-saving nutritional truth in an easy to understand manner with easy to follow methodology. Thank you!

  • Chef AJ. I can’t find the live stream comments anymore. I can’t find your answer to omega 3 and what to do for health. ��❤️. Please help!

  • I love the McDougalls! I followed the McDougall Plan in 1999 and lost 70 pounds. I had the pleasure of corresponding with Dr. McDougall by email. He was very nice and extremely helpful. I was able to reverse my health problems and infertility. I had 2 boys and owe it to Dr. McDougall’s Maximum Weight Loss program.

  • #AskLiveLeanTV I am a fan for over 2 years and just wanted to say “thank you” for promoting healthy eating with occasional cheat meals. I am 52 yr of woman. Mom of 2 adult girls and have a freaking awesome hubby. Just saying.:-)
    Question: For weight lossburn effectis it better to perform drop sets during weight training to insure that I finish my reps/sets? For example,I would lift 20 lbs x 12 reps drop to 15lbs x 12 reps then to 12 lbs x 12just finish out the set of 4. For me I have found that this will insure good form and yet “feel the burn”. Your opinion on drop sets. My goal is to lose weight. I am very active. By the way, I am very very nutritionally sound in my diet. No sugar, all natural.

  • Wonderful! Thanks to YOU, Chef AJ and the McDougalls as well as a few other of your favorite doctors making this information available, my husband and I are reclaiming our health. I really can’t thank all of you enough. Take care.

  • What I appreciate most about the Dr is his tenacity including not giving a crap about putting his factual concepts out there, once upon a time, insults be damned. Im sure there were many that scoffed at him initially. Thank you Dr, and his lovely wife. #GoStarch

  • A new study involving three men concluded that occasional fasting can help reverse type 2 diabetes. Three men with type 2 diabetes were able to stop insulin treatment altogether after intermittent fasting, but experts are warning that people shouldn’t try such a practice on their own.

  • Very informative video. Doctor I am not diabetic, but my sugar level is around 105 in fasting. Should I do fasting 3 times a week?

  • What an awesome interview!! These two people are so lovely! I have enjoyed watching them so much! Thank you, Chef AJ, for bringing them to us. I could watch them all day long!!

  • Thank you for addressing this issue as I had a car wreck in 2008 that left me with severe problems in my head and ear. I haven’t had money for a specialist because I had a concussion and I couldn’t recall anything afterward as far as insurance is concerned.

  • I always comment, & praise u for me regaining my health & mobility. I too, am older than my hubby too, by 8 yrs.. I love these two too, i was very sick woman, you gave me the info & i did the hard work. Take care xo ❤️����❤️��������❤️����

  • God bless Dr oriane for his marvelous work in my life, I was suffering from DIABETES since 2013 and I was taking my medications, I wasn’t satisfied i needed to get the DIABETES out of my system, I searched about some possible cure for DIABETES i saw a comment about Dr oriane how he cured DIABETES with his herbal medicine, I contacted him and he guided me. I asked for solutions, he started the remedy for my health, he sent me the medicine through UPS SPEED POST. I took the medicine as prescribed by him and 30 days later i was cured from DIABETES, Dr. oriane truly you are great, do you need his help also? Why don’t you contact him through: ([email protected])  or whatsapp at +2349031652461

  • We love you Mary and Dr McDougall. I just finished watching your online Starch Solution Certificate program and really enjoyed your videos and recipes. I have been following The Starch Solution way of eating for 3 years. I have lost a total of 64 lbs and kept it off. I have lowered my blood pressure, cholesterol and liver enzymes and eliminated debilitating knee and foot pain and improved symptoms of IBS. Thanks for all you do!!

  • I take Metformin and have been doing intermittent fasting and find no problems with it and am losing weight as well. Thank you for the information.

  • Thanks ma’am. Really helpfull content. But I was wondering if you could give some advice for emotional shock? It might not be a big problem as some say but its something that needs to be adressed. Im no psychologist but i believe we need to tackle these things. Its not everyday some people take small things easy.
