From Atkins to Dukan, fear of the almighty carb has taken over the diet industry for the past few decades even the mere mention of a starch-heavy food is enough to trigger an avalanche of shame and longing. But the truth is, carbs are not the enemy. Now, bestselling author John A. McDougall, MD, and his kitchen-savvy wife, Mary, prove that a starch-rich diet can actually help readers lose weight, prevent a variety of ills, and even cure common diseases. By fueling the body primarily with carbohydrates rather than proteins and fats, readers will feel satisfied, boost energy, and look and feel their best. Including a 7-Day Sure-Start Plan, helpful weekly menu planner, and nearly 100 delicious, affordable recipes, "The Starch Solution "is a groundbreaking program that will help readers shed pounds, improve their health, save money, and change their lives."

Dr McDougal's plan works wonders and this stuff really should be thought in schools to our kids, the book has helped me loose lots of weight and bring my BMI down to around 21 all without doing any exercise! I really dont think i could ever go back to the standard diet after reading this and Dr Graham's 80/10/10 book!
He does well to cram the science information and also a rather comprehensive game-plan into just one book, but just by the nature of such an endevour the science may not be as thorough as some readers might desire. However that is not to say the science information is very dissatisfactory or lacking. If you come to this book with a certain stubborness, you will find the science insufficient so therefore if it's a greater volume of proof you want then The China Study by T Colin Campbell should pass the test.
In general though if you want to possess a considerably greater control over your own health then this book is about as good a place to begin as you're likely to find.
Following a vegan, starch based diet provides you with optimal energy, you feel in a great mood, your digestion is better, skin complaints clear up and you are NEVER HUNGRY! There is no calorie counting and all the meals are just delicious and oh so satisfying.
Thank you Dr McDougall - this book has transformed my health.
I would also recommend you see his many videos on YouTube.
