The Rice Diet: What, Why, How To?


Why has the Rice Diet been the most effective approach for helping the severely ill and the overweight at Duke University, for almost seventy years? Why does Dr. John McDougall recommend it? Find out why, this coming Wed. Aug. 27 at 6 pm. Dr. Francis Albert Neelon, MD,graduate of Harvard Medical School and endocrinologist, will describe via video the rice diet and the clinical results observed at Duke University Medical Center. Then the nutritional and health benefits of black rice, basmati brown rice and other varieties will be discussed. Sample menus for a vegan rice diet will be shared with those who attend.

First, enjoy a delicious vegan dinner prepared by a certified Nutrition Consultant, Patricia Allen Koot, NE, NC. All vegan and all health-supporting, made without eggs, dairy, honey, oil or added sugars, the diet still tastes delicious. Enjoy Patricia's vegan cake made without oil, sugar, or baking powder. You wont' believe how good it tastes! Dinner is all you care to eat. Bring a container and take some home with you.

Location is the Opera Plaza Community Room, 601 Van Ness. Take the elevator to the first floor, then Security will key you down to the mezzanine for the event.

A fifteen dollar requested donation covers the all you can eat vegan dinner and the presentation on the rice diet. The Nutritionist donates her time. Funds go toward facility rental, food, transport and other expenses.

    Steve V, to put things in perspective, billions of people in many countries, rely on rice as a daily staple diet. They are not the ones who become ill. It is those who adopt a Western diet that become ill. As a point of reference, Duke University Medical Center has found a rice diet to be most beneficial in dealing with serious disease, for almost 70 years.
