Publisher's Summary

From Atkins to Dukan, fear of the almighty carb has taken over the diet industry for the past few decades - even the mere mention of a starch-heavy food is enough to trigger an avalanche of shame and longing. But the truth is, carbs are not the enemy. Now, best-selling author John A. McDougall, MD, and his kitchen-savvy wife, Mary, prove that a starch-rich diet can actually help us lose weight, prevent a variety of ills, and even cure common diseases. By fueling the body primarily with carbohydrates rather than proteins and fats, listeners will feel satisfied, boost energy, and look and feel their best.
Including a 7-day sure-start plan, helpful weekly menu planner, and nearly 100 delicious, affordable recipes, The Starch Solution is a groundbreaking program that will help listeners shed pounds, improve their health, save money, and change their lives.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Life changing information

Most of us are so misinformed about what food is healthy. I thought I was eating well until I started looking into the actual evidence of nutrition and what effect it has on your body. You MUST read this book and others to educate yourself on how to feed yourself and your family. It could save your life. The other huge benefits of this diet are of environmental urgency and animal welfare.
