I am new to Starch-Smart. It's only been a week and a half. I am starting to see some good changes to my skin. I'm real happy about that. I'm getting in 55-60 minutes of walking, mostly 60 minutes. That is such a BIG change for me! But I'm feeling tired. I'm wondering if this is ...
I have always been fearful of getting on the scale. I know I am overweight and needing to lose. But I bought a new scale and I decided every Friday I would have a weigh in. I was afraid last night it woud show I gained. But I am so happy--I lost 3 pounds! I hope and pray this wil...
Dr. Carney, I posed a question to you on the McDougall support group site and you suggested I post it here so here I go: I want to better understand an issue with olive oil. First let me say I take the attitude that oils are not necessary for our health and are generally harmful...
I am a plant based cooking club coordinator so I am always on the lookout for tasty and healthy recipes.  Have you ever had Irish mashed potatoes? They call it Colcannon in the Emerald Isle. Potatoes, cabbage and onions--easy food to grow for centuries over there. In my Michigan...
I have been oil free for 5 weeks and believe this is the right way to live. But I realize this is a controversial issue among health educators. Just today, I was talking with a health ministries director who shared this with me, "Extra virgin olive oil contains 34 different antio...
Thank you for having this forum. I am new to Starch Smart--I just started this week though I have been oil free for a month. I am hoping to lose 30 pounds and getting rid of a face rash that I have had for a year now due to inflammation. It's been so freeing to finally have answe...
Are there any groups here?...
I have been off oil for 5 weeks. On Starch Smart for one week. I have had a bad rash on my face for a year that's never gone away. I I couldn't find out what was causing it either. But it is already responding! It is smoother, flush is lighter in color. Dr. Carney recommended usi...
Hello--Thank you so much for this site.  (I came here again to ask a specific question, but have found a LOT of other useful info as I normally do!)    My question:  My dear friend, who has been vegan for more than 40 years---and VERY particular about his diet (everyone on this s...
In recent conversations regarding dietary fat and the pursuit of "good fats", I often mention that it is virtually impossible to be fat deficient - regardless how fat-free one tries to be (unless starving). I mention that every whole food has more than enough fat - even lettuce w...
Twice today, I've had people argue with me about "necessary" oils and the "good fats". I'm at a loss how to respond to them, they both have health issues, but are obviously listening to the wrong doctors. Any suggestions? ...
Hi Dr. Carney, You recommend chia seeds, flax seeds and walnuts as sources of omega 3 fats because they do not create inflammation in the body. I'm assuming this is the case as long as they are eaten within reasonable amounts of course : ) How about hemp seeds? ...
The story about Ken Thomas entitled Ken's Engineered Type 1 Diabetes Whole Food Plant Based Low Fat Lifestyle proved to be extremely popular, generating many questions and comments to the point that we decided it might be easier for people to find this information if it was inclu...
I have just begun trying to follow your startch smart suggestions, but am needing some suggestions for gluten free whole grains acceptable for those who are celiac and also pre-diabetic.  Thanks so much for all your help!!...
Sean, Right after I wrote my previous reply, I shared the link on my Happy Vegan Couple Facebook page, Vegan Tucson and my own Timeline. I told all to check out Dr. Linda Carney! Happy too!  Is it appropriate or not on your web site for me to post any of my Happy Vegan Couple Coo...
Hello, I was reading Ken Thomas's diabetes discussion and was very surprised to hear that the oils in body lotions can actually affect your blood sugar levels! Makes me wonder about body wash and lipsticks or lip balms? What does everyone think about these items?...
Has anyone tried Niveau Krill oil for thinning hair due to the effect of menopause? I have read good reviews, but I want to hopefully get some first- hand experience from any users on this forum.Thank you!...
Hi everyone, recently started weight training a week ago. I do three days of heavy weightlifting and 2 days of cardio. The program I'm doing is Chelean Extreme from Beachbody. It focuses on building muscle to speed your metabolism. It focuses heavily on muscle fatigue. I'm seeing...
Hello everyone, I was wondering if metabolic damage real. It is a topic heavily discussed in the high-carb vegan community. Metabolic damage is the damage caused by long term calorie restriction, either through dieting or eating disorders. People who have a history of calorie res...
Hello everyone, I was wondering why plant-based doctors  such as Dr.Esselytn and Dr.Mcdougall discorage the use of healthy fats, while others like  Dr.Fuhrman encourages the use of fats to lose weight and for overall health. I find this to be confusing.  Many of Dr.Mcdougalls rec...
