Good episode? Give it some love!
Do you love your corn, potatoes, beans and rice, and wish that they just weren’t starches so you could eat them to your heart’s content?
Well if so, then do we have a myth-busting, turn-things-on-their-heads, no potato left unturned, starchy show for you!
Today we'll be talking with Dr. John McDougall, author of 12 National Best-Selling books, including The Starch Solution: Eat the Foods You Love, Regain Your Health, and Lose the Weight for Good!
Today we’ll be talking about starch, what it is, why it’s supposedly not good for us, what the studies show, why you’ve never heard this before, and perhaps the shocking truth.
For I want to get to the bottom of this, because I love my potatoes and with a bit of salt, but for years, wouldn’t touch a single one. I’ve been high ketone, high fat, high veggies, lots of green smoothies, but always, above and beyond everything else, LOW STARCH…and don’t even get me started about the glycemic index. But we’ll talk about all of it today in a mind-blowing, myth-busting show. Nothings sacred today, and especially not the potato.
