Dr. Doug Lisle and Chef AJ (revised)
Remember this blog post, where Dr. McDougall and Jeff Novick both chime in on why eating a mostly-vegetable diet isn't such a good idea? Well, last week Chef AJ had a teleconference with Dr. Doug Lisle, and besides repeating things he mentioned in his other videos, such as The Willpower Paradox, Losing Weight Without Losing Your Mind, The Continuum of Evil, and even Forks Over Knives: The Extended Interviews, he mentioned how important it is to your brain function to get some carbs/starches in early in the day, preferably first thing in the morning.
Hear for yourself:
I do have to agree with Dr Doug, and have even argued with others who are following UWL program who were eating only veggies until dinner time. Even Chef AJ has mentioned that you can eat starches at breakfast , just make sure to get your veggies in first. She says, that yeah, if you're not satisfied with those 100+ calories (or 200+, if you get all the required 2 pounds in at this time) of green veggies then go ahead and eat some starch, unlike what Dr Lisle (And Dr McDougall) say, which is that the starch is more important and you should make sure to have that before anything else, like veggies.
Let's all don our Starchivore t-shirts and hats and proudly eat those spuds! LOL
