One of the most interesting thing that people discover when they switch their evening meal to a small, easy to digest meal is that they then wake up hungry and ready to eat a significant breakfast whereas before they were not hungry. :-) They also report waking up more energetic in the morning. This is our experience as well. It is not essential but it is certainly very helpful.

I really hate this and I have to do this reintroducing with more items. Is there a link you have to show calorie intake ?

    • I am not sure if I can share a link to a Facebook image here but will try. It is about calorie density.  https://www.facebook.com/lindacarneymd/photos/I am not sure if I can share a link to a Facebook image here but will try. It is about calorie density.  https://www.facebook.com/lindacarneymd/photos/a.1868165823214367.1073741836.201196426577990/1868172676547015/?type=3&theater
      However, be aware the answer is not to start eating excessively dense foods as they tend to be inflammatory. Instead the answer is probably to eat MORE of the starches.
      Are you currently underweight and that is why you are worried about maintaining your weight? The reason I ask is that most people when they go on a Starch-Smart program see their weight go down for awhile, until they reach their ideal weight and then they plateau.

Dr Carney I’m having to deal with this horrid burping and no relief from a what I assume is heartburn? I’m also worried because I’m not feeling an appetite but having to force myself to eat which seems to make this heaviness in my lower chest worse , the burping doesn’t seem to relieve me. It happens every evening, I’ve tried the breathing exercises, raising my head , I took Tums once yesterday, it helped but today not so much, I’m at my wits end. More
    • Nice. Glad you found somebody. It ends up that she and Dr. Carney both graduated from the same Medical School. Small world.

    I’m so miserable on this WOE I’m thinking it was a mistake to now. Between heart burn or acid reflux that I’m having to deal with since being on this WOE. I’m losing weight and and don’t feel hungry when I need to eat? What am I doing wrong ?

    • Flora,
      It would be great if you could review the Starch-Smartest level of the Starch-Smart System. Then go through the list of items one by one to verFlora,
      It would be great if you could review the Starch-Smartest level of the Starch-Smart System. Then go through the list of items one by one to verify for yourself that you are following the program exactly. If you find anything that you are not doing please try to follow the program. We generally find that doing some fine tuning by more closely following the Starch-Smartest level works. In fact, I am not really aware of anybody it has not helped. But, we also know that many times people believe they are following the program but there are usually some deviations. Those should be remedied.
      I hope this helps. You might want to print the Starch-Smartest level up and post it somewhere like on your refrigerator or somewhere convenient in the kitchen.
      Dr. Carney just asked me to create a nice handout for the Starch-Smartest level and I will try to do that shortly.
      Sean

I can barely force myself to eat more than a couple of bites anymore and it says fruit and grains for dinner plus the greens ? I try and eat a couple of pieces of sweet potatoes with lunch and evening meals though, I can tolerate them in the morning too. I’m about to eat some split pea soup with carrot pieces, right now ,going to cut up some fresh spinach eat with it , What can I eat over them to make them more palatable ? Or I can just chop it up and eat in the soup?  More ...

The Starch-Smartest program is for people with disease reversal goals. It is stricter than the other levels. It is a highly effective program. We do understand the struggle to eat vegetables and to eat them for breakfast in particular. But, it works. :-) Dr. Carney's video entitled "Why We Do What We Do?" will help you to understand why it is such a struggle sometimes to make these changes. You are not alone. :-)
