Earlier this morning I remembered my misguided experiment with the McDougall Diet, circa 2004. I identified three ways is which McDougall is the polar opposite of primal:

1) the focus is on almost zero-fat meals made up of grains and produce

2) the food tastes like ass

3) it doesn't work.

He claims his diet is great because you can eat all you want. All-you-can-eat bare brown rice and cabbage with nothing on it? What was I thinking?
