I have seen so so many testimonials of people on the Starch Solution. If the testimonials are to be believed, countless people have experienced weight loss and reversal of a host of medical conditions like type 2 diabetes, heart disease, IBS, allergies, skin problems, liver disease among others following the starch based diet. Their diets are based on potatoes, rice, beans with vegetables and fruit and whole grains. Most of the calories are from the starches. It’s odd eating this way as a type 2 diabetic but I am enjoying success. I can’t eat wheat so I don’t. And I still eat a little meat. But for the most part I have given up dairy and the huge amounts of animal protein and fat I used to eat. I eat about a third of the meat on some days. And I go without meat some days. I have more energy and feel better than I did eating the mostly meatarian way. And I’ve lost another 5 lbs since following this regimen off and on over the last month. I am now going to try following it more closely. I will keep y’all posted.
I do continue to incorporate the intermittent fasting component. After my last meal in the evening I don’t eat until the passage of 12 to 16 hours. My night’s sleep is included in that fast so it’s easy to stay with it. The benefits of a short fast begin at 12 hours. I am finding that the Starch Solution blends very well with IF. I don’t know why this is the case but it has been my experience so far.
