I know most nutritionists will have a fit at this, but nutritionists are there to help you live healthy, and the benefit of that is losing weight. So, nothing wrong with eating a bit of starch. However; if you have a lot of weight to lose, then putting carbs for your body to burn for energy doesn’t really make sense, does it? What you want your body to do is burn your fat for energy.

Anyway, if you have a lot of weight to lose, you can cut back on the starch until you get to the point of maintaining your weight through a healthy lifestyle in my opinion.
