Dr. John McDougall explains why he uses the term “starch-based” diet despite that, to some, it has a negative connotation. While we prefer the term “plant-based,” we strongly agree on the need for people to focus on those low fat, starch-based foods that provide sufficient calories for energy – foods like potatoes, sweet potatoes, beans, corn, rice, barley, etc. While leafy vegetables are important in the diet, it’s these low fat, higher calorie foods that provide the energy to fuel the body and allow us to thrive for a lifetime. Excluding these foods, on the other hand, can lead to hunger, cravings, and poor nutrition. Click here to read Dr. McDougall's article.
