It's all set out in books by Dr. McDougal - one that IS focussed on weight loss is :McDougal's Plan for Maximum Weight Loss.
I second this. When I switched to this way of eating I went from a size 20 to a size 14, while eating all I want, whenever I want.

I would have to disagree. I am at the healthiest point I have ever reached! I am rarely ill, even when others around me are. My skin glows, my hair is healthy, my nails grow like crazy... and I feel wonderful! I get about 15% of my calories from fat. Dean Ornish and Dr. Macdougall have books that call for the same kind of diet, though Ornish does have some low fat/ fat free dairy. You can reverse heart disease, help your aching joints, keep your blood sugar under control and dramatically lower your blood pressure, among other things, by eating very little fat and eating a lot of whole grains, beans, and veggies!
