The Starch Solution

Dr. Fuhrman gets a lot of mention on this blog because, well, his focus on veggies, particularly of the green leafy variety, and legumes (yeah, baby!) is in line with mine.

That said, sometimes, especially around the holidays or when short on funds, one can find themselves becoming a bit of a carbaholic. Shhh…

During times like these, it’s nice to give Dr. McDougall a little more play, because obviously we’re not talking about white flour and sugar here, rather whole grains and potatoes, and he defends them vociferously.

Consider this post as therapy. ;)

Resources…

His last book: Dr. McDougall’s Digestive Tune-Up (2006)

Study mentioned in talk: Kon All Potato Diet

Gladiator’s Were Vegan Full Documentary on Google Video.

Have a wonderful holiday season! Enjoy your complex carbs and stay healthy. :)

    Thanks for the props for McDougall. He deserves some credit for doing this longer than just about anybody, since the 70s! He even inspired Esselstyn to undertake his study in reversing CVD. Remember he bases this on some very long lived and healthy populations like the Okinawans and the Tarahumara, who ate 80% or more of calories from unrefined starches with fabulous results.

    I enjoyed this video and Dr. McDougall’s ideas. I second his notion that “artificial” vitamin supplements are generally toxic and not the ideal way to go. Eating your vitamins through more natural fruit and vegetable sources is definitely the better alternative. More people should be sharing this idea.
