It is excellent information. I picture the "portion control plate" that is used for those who eat meat and translate that to the McDougall plan, small portions of grains, legumes, nuts and the majority of the plate full of freggies. Works for me!
Thanks for posting it!

Reading older posts here I found this bit of information which I found very useful:
***

"These are averages that I use for each category that I think covers the range of the category fairly well and if anything, errs on the side of caution.

Fresh Veggies are around 100 cal/lb
Fresh Fruits around 250-300 cal/lb
Starchy Veggies/Intact Whole Grains around 450-500 cal/lb
Legumes around 550-600 cal/lb
Processed Grains (even if their Whole grain) around 1200-1500 cal/lb
Nuts/Seeds around 2800 cal/lb
Oils around 4000 cal/lb

What they have found is if people follow the guidelines and principles of calorie density and the calorie density of the food is below ~400 calories per pound, most people will lose weight.

Between ~400-~800 calories per pound, with some regular moderate exercise, most will lose weight.

Between ~800-~1200 calories per pound, most people gained weight, except for those with very high activity levels

Over ~1200 calories per pound, most everyone seemed to gain weight. "
