Starchy carbs sparingly?

  • Can you explain why it's recommended to eat starchy carbs sparingly on Ignite? Is it based on a concern that people tend to overeat any carbs? Because things like sweet potatoes, beans, chickpeas, brown rice and quinoa are such nutrition packed, low calorie foods that don't seem to include any of the evil six. If you could, please provide an explanation or guidance on how much of these is too much. Thanks!

    Yes, it is true that many people tend to overeat starchy carbs. If you are not carb sensitive and do not have blood sugar control issues, then by all means eat some starchy carbs with your meals. Just don't make them the centerpiece of the meal. Eat a starchy carb as a side dish.
