A bestselling writer’s groundbreaking eating plan that challenges the notion that starch is unhealthy
From Atkins to Dukan, the fear-mongering about carbs over the last few decades has reached a fever pitch; the mere mention of a starch-heavy food is enough to trigger a cavalcade of shame and longing.
In The Starch Solution, bestselling diet doctor and board-certified internist John A. McDougall, MD, and his kitchen-savvy wife, Mary, turn the notion that starch is bad for you on its head. The Starch Solution is based on a simple swap: fueling your body primarily with carbohydrates moderately than proteins and fats. This will will let you lose weight and prevent quite a few ills.
Fad diets come and go, but Dr. McDougall has been a proponent of the plant-based diet for decades, and his medical credibility is unassailable. He is among the mainstay experts cited in the bestselling and now seminal China Study–referred to as the “Grand Prix of epidemiology” by the New York Times. But what The China Study lacks is a plan.
Dr. McDougall grounds The Starch Solution in rigorous scientific fact and research, giving readers easy tools to implement these changes into their way of life with a 7-Day Quick Start Plan and 100 delicious recipes. This book includes testimonials from a number of the hundreds Dr. McDougall has received, including people who have lost more than 125 pounds in mere months in addition to patients who have conquered lifethreatening illnesses such as diabetes and cardiac ailments.
