Better energy with a starch based diet
Know someone eating a low carb, low calorie diet looking drained and sluggish? It’s no surprise that eating this way has got them looking and feel like the walking dead. In a a society that promotes starvation diets, low carb diets and frankly downright dangerous eating habits it’s hard to find the truth. Any starch based diet is shunned. Sugar is a crime. Fat seems to make people slim…
What you need is something that’s going to give you stacks of energy, helps you reach your perfect weight and allows you to be the best version of yourself.
A high carb, low fat, vegan diet is certainly the way to go. Starch, sugar, carbs, it’s what our body needs to survive and more importantly thrive.
This excerpt from The Starch Solution by Dr. John McDougall sums the whole concept up well.
“Every year, millions of people lose weight without necessarily improving their health. In fact, these weight-loss methods often cause illness. The best example of this negative effect of dieting is the once-popular Atkins-type, low-carbohydrate, high-protein approach. These diets work by severe carbohydrate deprivation, which causes a state of illness (with the common outcome of ketosis). When people become sick they lose their appetite and lose weight. This method for losing extra pounds is analogous to the weight loss seen in people taking cancer chemotherapy drugs. To the careful observer, people following low-carbohydrate diets look and acts sick, too.
A starch based diet, on the other hand, brings radiant health along with the loss of excess body fat. Endurance athletes know the benefits of “carb-loading.” In addition to enabling peak performance, a starch based diet improves blood flow to all tissue in the body. The skin glows with a clear complexion from the improved circulation. A welcome by-product of eating low-fat starches is the elimination of oily skin, blackheads, whiteheads, and acne. From weight loss and the resulting relief from arthritis, people on a starch based diet feel active, agile and more youthful.”
