I consider that to be my starting diet.
Amaranth: A high-starch flour which, when broken down in the body, equals sugar. In Nigeria and other areas it’s considered is a common starch dish.
Carrots: I hate repeating myself, but this is another high-starch food.
Beets: In the south and several other areas these are called “sugar beets.” You can probably guess why.
The sweet taste of beets is a reflection of their high sugar content. This makes beets a source for the production of refined sugar; thus, the name, sugar beets.
Cranberry juice (unsweetened): The fact that it’s unsweetened has little significance. An 8 oz. glass of unsweetened cranberry juice still contains 30 grams of sugar.
Chickpeas, chickpea flour: A total of 47% of the carbohydrates in chickpeas is starch.
Snow peas: The green pea family contains many different names. Some are called ‘sugar pods’ and others are called ‘sugar snaps’ for a good reason; that’s because they all contain sugar and starch.
I could go on, but if anyone is wondering if there are negative effects about the diet, this should answer the question.
The list I provided is a small portion of the list provided in the book.
If this is a small portion, it’s difficult to imagine how much worse it could be.
