Although there are many ways to lose weight, a Starch-Smart® diet has been proven to be the safest and most healthful way to achieve permanent weight loss without having to count calories, measure portions, or adding points. Replacing animal products, oils, and refined processed foods with whole, nutrient-dense, plant foods, results in remarkably easy weight loss. A Starch-Smart® diet involves changing eating and lifestyle habits that will last a lifetime. Food addictions, cravings, and overeating is resolved by meeting our body's needs for volume, weight, fiber and micronutrients. Consuming a variety of starchy and non-starchy vegetables, fruits, beans, legumes, intact grains, nuts and seeds ensures optimal nutrition as well as reversing disease and preventing future health conditions. These foods are very filling, they satisfy our hunger, and suppress the desire to overeat by keeping our blood sugar levels steady. Applying the principles of "Calorie Concentration" or "Concentrated Calories", also referred to as calorie density, results in shedding unwanted pounds by eating a higher volume of food that's lower in calories.
