I just popped over to the blog again, and it is great to see the discussions. I wanted to add here what I added there.

***************

There has been quite the debate and N=1 on MDA over starches and potatoes in particular. There is a lot of science to the results but many ppl are actually having great results by adding more potatoes. And very much YMMV.

PHD says UP TO 1lb of fruit and UP TO 1lb of starches. For many ppl it is the missing piece. Agreeable it is not for everyone. You just have to see and do what works best for you. He also discusses ketogenic diets for those that need to go that route. From my notes he says: Natural carb intake for healthy sedentary person is about 600 calories, 300 for ketogenic dieting.

Mark Sisson even wrote the forward for the new book. The basic guidelines are as follows:

low to mod. Carbohydrate (20-35%)
High fat (50-65%)
Mod Protein (15%)

By weight, 65% plant, 35% meats & oils

If you need to lose weight, he recommends dialing the fat back to 40% which he discusses in a bit more detail in the 2nd edition.

*****************
I also should have added, that if you are an athlete, he suggests adding about 500 calories per hour of athletic training.

Great post & blog!

There has been alot of great discussion on MDA regarding starches & resistant starches, potatoes in particular. Adding the starches back in really was key for me, and doing so on a regular basis rather than just for refeed purposes.

I also love that in the new PHD book, Mark wrote the Forward for the book emoticon

Thanks again Allison for taking the time and sharing this with us!

I eat white rice too (LOVE white Basmati) but I also eat sprouted brown rice which has been soaked and sprouted. This makes it MUCH easier to digest. Plus, it always cooks up perfectly; can't recommend it enough.

You can buy it on-line (expensive) or at a grocery store (don't know what it costs). I get it from my food co-op (Azure Standard) for less than half of what amazon's cheapest organic one costs.

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

Sedgey - Oh, interesting... I didn't know he'd said anything about it since I thought it was off-limits. Too bad, though, 'cause brown rice is way tastier. :-)

I responded on your blog, Allison, but I wanted to respond to Jenna here.

The primal/paleo recommendation is for white rice since the potentially gut irritating bran and germ have been milled off.

Of course, whatever works best for you. Just wanted to point that out. Mark has a few posts on the topic too. :)

Good post! I've actually been thinking about this a lot lately, and came to the conclusion (through no science or expert advice, mind you) that once I'm done with my juicing detox and start to eat primal/paleo again, I'm going to allow myself some natural whole-food carbs like potatoes and brown rice. I'll still avoid the sugars and highly processed foods like cereals, bread, pasta, etc., but I really don't think the others will hurt me if consumed only periodically, especially once I reach my goal weight. Anyway, thanks for sharing another perspective on the subject that I wasn't familiar with!

In case anyone here is working with the Perfect Health Diet guidelines but doesn't belong to that team, I thought I would post a link to my recent blog here (with photos!).
