Evelyn Johnson | Healthy for life

She came for the bargain books, she stayed for her health
...
When veteran homeschooling mom Evelyn Johnson of Abilene, Kansas first discovered VegSource.com in March of 1998, she was looking for some good deals on the site's busy curriculum swap boards .
...
Evelyn says that she had "played around" with ordering meatless selections from menus in the past, but had "never dreamed I would become a vegetarian."
Evelyn remembers well the day she "went vegan" -- December 13, 1998. On the eleventh day of her new life, December 24, 1998, Evelyn's husband Tom gave her a wonderful Christmas present: he decided to eschew all animal products as well, and joined her on the McDougall plan.
"We went from being a big meat and potatoes family to total vegan over night! says Evelyn. "I convinced Tom to 'McDougall' with me by telling him I needed the support. He promised to do the 12 day program, probably more to help me out than to do anything for himself."
Tom liked the idea of shedding a few extra pounds, as well, and so he decided he would "McDougall" with Evelyn for three or four months, then go back to "regular" eating.

Prior to McDougalling, Evelyn hadn't bought a swimsuit for 15 years. Shopping for a new one was a delicious experience, she says.

When the amazed clerk asked how Evelyn had dropped so much weight, Evelyn responded, "My husband and I just started eating a low-fat total vegetarian diet with no animal products. Evelyn said the clerk's mouth just dropped open.
...
Evelyn's four children switched to a McDougall-style diet at the same time Evelyn and Tom did -- and have benefited, too. "My 16-year-old, Emily, has gone from a size 12 to 7. Craig, 12, no longer has headaches. Heath (7) and Lydia (9) tell people in stores and restaurants, 'We used to eat that, but now we're McDougalling!'"
Feelin' good, lookin' good!
Evelyn says the changes in her family have gone beyond the physical.
...
Evelyn says that before that moment she had never even given a thought about how all these animals had gotten there. "It sounds crazy, but I don't even think that I had thought about them as being 'animals' until that point. I remember suddenly thinking to myself, 'I will never eat an animal again.'"
Evelyn says her children are "so much more aware than I was at their ages -- they have a different attitude towards nature than most people do. I believe their becoming vegetarian has something to do with that."
Helping others, by example
Evelyn has also inspired other VegSourcers to follow in her successful footsteps, as she leads a mini-McDougall support group at the HomeSchooling Breakfast Nook board .

Another homeschooler Evelyn met on VegSource, Michele Teal, decided she'd give McDougalling a try, too.
...
Another friend Evelyn made on VegSource, Renee Crites, said, "Never in a million years did I expect to be a vegetarian!
...
So, do Evelyn and Tom find low-fat vegan food "boring?"The question amuses both of them.
"Last weekend we had a getaway with just the two of us, and had dinner at a sushi restaurant. As we ate our veggie sushi rolls and udon noodle soup, we discussed how if we had been served this a year and a half ago, Tom would have turned up his nose. But of all the vegan food we ate that weekend, his favorite was the sushi!"
Evelyn said that before McDougalling they had never had a lot of different foods, like sushi, and so this was just another example of how fun and exciting sampling new foods has become for her. "We're much more adventurous when it comes to food, I'd say. Now you want to talk about burgers -- that's boring!"
"I am so grateful to Dr. McDougall and to VegSource," Evelyn concludes.
