🥔🥔Happy Potato Day!!! 🥔🥔If you are like me, you 🎉 celebrated by eating ridiculous amounts of potatoes! But to be fair, that is a typical day for me.
I ❤️ POTATOES!!! They are one of the staples of my starch-based diet. *
But wait, don’t potatoes make you fat, contribute to type-2 diabetes, and give you heart disease 🤒? Nope. Nope. And nope. If you have these diseases, I promise, you did not get them from eating too many potatoes. Maybe what you put on the potatoes (🥓🧀) or what you put them next to (🥩🥓🍗) over and over, but definitely not the potatoes themselves. *
🥔 Here’s a brief overview of the science. This is not new information, but there is no money in the prevention of disease, so it is not talked about. * 🥔🥔When you eat fat (meat, dairy, oils, butter, processed foods), it is simply stored as body fat. It takes only 3% of those calories to do this. In other words, it is “easy” and your body always takes the easy route. When you eat starch (potatoes, grains, sweet potatoes, corn, ect.), your body converts what it needs for energy into simple sugars. Your 🧠brain needs sugar. Then, it can store about 2 pounds of simple sugars in the liver and muscles to be used later. The rest is simply burned off through non-exercise activity💪🏻. It would take the body 30% of the calories to convert the simple sugars to fat. It is just too inefficient for the body to store carbohydrates so it gets rid of the extra. *
🥔🥔🥔 In simple terms, eat starch. For breakfast, lunch, dinner, and everything in between. It will make your liver happy, feed your gut, and keep you feeling full! Need more proof? Read the “Starch Solution” by Dr. McDougall. It will change your life!
