Alcahol comment was more about maybe one glass and not two if that agrees with you better
I have read the China Study, I have also been looking very closely at DrMcDougall, who would have taken on Swank's patients as had been in discussion with him before he retired but at that time while still working in the medical arena directly (hospital based) that hositpal said we don't want those patients... any way. Animal protien (meat/fish) is inflamatory and we do not need anywhere near the amount that we commonly consume. There is protien in a whole food plant based diet, all that we need.

I thought the food diary was animal protien too heavy, breakfast, lunch and dinner is high on imflamatory foods.
The OMS diet whilst it does not state no animal protien, it is in the 'in moderation' section, so that for me means a whole food diet with 'some' animal protiens, not some every day and in more than one meal.
BBD allows far too much animal protien I feel, I took from it no gluten (which agrees with me personally) and I only do not eat legumes because I have a sensitivity to them.
I am still fine tuning my diet nearly three years later, we are all doing so well by embracing making changes
