Eat the Foods You Love, Regain Your Health, and Lose the Weight for Good!
The starch solution (en español) is a vegan, low fat diet. Dr. McDougall emphasizes eating starches and explains why they don’t promote excess weight gain, considering it a myth. First part of the book is all about –as you can guess- starches, what they are, types, history, etc.
There’s a section with frequent questions about where to get the protein or calcium with a vegan diet. Part three of the book is about what to eat and what to avoid, healthy substitutes, eating out, a seven day start plan and recipes.
Be aware that being a vegan is not enough to be healthy, “a great number of vegans are overweight and unhealthy” because of vegan junk food. Dr. McDougall has a youtube channel and a web site that you can check out for more information.

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.
