It's nice that she won $25,000 to support PCRM with a vegan dish.....but she sure likes her olive oil.

I agree the olive oil was a lot. BUT, keep in mind that she did raise awareness for PCRM and having a vegan diet. That part I thought was great. Awareness leads to knowledge which could lead to positive changes for all!

I do agree that its great that she brought awareness to PCRM, but there are a lot of unhealthy vegans out there who enjoy their french fries, coca-cola, donuts, and oreos. The message should not just be focused on vegan, but rather a low-fat healthy vegan lifestyle.

So the lesson for the day, by way of Marilu Henner, is the only way you can win a healthy vegan eating contest is to load it up with fat?

Does she realize that her meal, which consisted of 3/4 cup of olive oil, has the same amount of fat as SIX McDonald's quarter pounders with cheese.

3/4 cup olive oil = 162g of fat, 22.369 g of saturated fat and 1432 calories.

It makes me shudder. Sad

Olive oil is no good, if you're following John McDougall, Caldwell Esselstyn, or (m)any of the other vegan MDs who have our ears at present.

Of course, if you're comparing olive oil to corn oil, there may be a preference, but no oil is better than any oil .


no oil
Very Happy

any oil
Twisted Evil
