Publisher's Summary

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, best-selling author John A. McDougall, MD, and his kitchen-savvy wife, Mary, prove that a starch-rich diet can actually help us lose weight, prevent a variety of ills, and even cure common diseases. By fueling the body primarily with carbohydrates rather than proteins and fats, listeners 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 listeners shed pounds, improve their health, save money, and change their lives.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

    "Life changing information"

    Most of us are so misinformed about what food is healthy. I thought I was eating well until I started looking into the actual evidence of nutrition and what effect it has on your body. You MUST read this book and others to educate yourself on how to feed yourself and your family. It could save your life. The other huge benefits of this diet are of environmental urgency and animal welfare.

    "Life changing, life affirming"

    This book could have been titled The Simple Starch Solution because Dr McDougall really does make it simple to understand and easy to follow how to bring health and heading to the table every day.

    "Great For Vegetarians Looking to Improve Health"

    I know a LOT of my fellow vegetarians who live on really unhealthy food and i also know a lot who have lost a lot of weight and improved their health by following Dr McDougall. I have already corrected a lot of health problems and lost some weight but I'm hoping to lose more weight and make this lifestyle more sustainable and satisfying.
    The recipes are really good! My kids love the pancakes and desserts and I just love eating all the potatoes i like!
    If you want to get off insulin, blood pressure drugs, reduce pain from arthritis, alleviate autoimmune disorders, have tons of energy and alleviate gut issues, this is worth a try.

    "So informative!"

    A very easy listen. Everything makes perfect sense and because of it I'm going to change my diet. The book has helped me confirm that my health comes first and that there's a community of people who have gone through what I'm experiencing (the difficulty of letting meat go) and have changed for the better.

    It's difficult to refute the facts McDougall lays out. I'm going to walk this path.

    Excellent narrator!
    Excellent story!

    Everyone will love it!
