hi tracy...do you have a source for finding out what is starch and what is
carbohydrate? I keep getting
confused...i.e. starch is bread. potatoes..but also turns out to be
certain vegetables...whereas bread and
potatoes also do contain protein...

Thanks. I believe the last paragraph says it all.

The upshot of these different metabolic processes is that a calorie of
carbohydrates will tend to make you fatter than a calorie of fat that is
eaten in the absence of carbohydrates. That is because excess carbohydrates
turn to fat, which is stored, but excess fat is broken down and excreted.

Avoid hydrogenated oils and sugar.
Do not mix starch with protein and /or fats.

Tracy, you ought to change "Do not mix starch with protein" to Do not mix
starch with protein and/or fat.

One can live without carbohydrates (starch/sugar) but not proteins and
fats! Eskimos and other tribes have demonstrated this.

My partner says by normal definition of "bread", it has to have flour which
is starch. Your turn.


Then they have got your partner well and good! Tell her to try some of
these before condemning them. Nice thing is that once you reduce your carbs
you will get sick if you eat them the old way. So now I get just about the
same enjoyment form cakes etc at less than 1/4 of what I needed before to
be satisfied . Hence, I don't need them much.




Don't be misled by all the talk about protein their good info here,
although I think this diet is too lean as per my previous emails as
referred in below.

sooo...no toast or bread with butter, since butter is dairy i.e.

Yep. You can make nut breads, like I do, and then have butter (preferably
raw if you can find it). For recipes see my earlier email at:


Link for recipes is in the 1st letter.
