  • Butternut squash/ pumpkin

    I love these so much especially pumpkin and have it 3-4 times a week,i know
    they're starchy do they stall weight loss?

    They might

    You have to experiment and see what works for you. Typically though, starchy veggies should probably be avoided by anyone trying to lose some weight. But, I've read on here about people having immense success keeping said starches in their food plan and losing weight dramatically.

    I personally feel you will lose weight no matter what once you cut out all grains. Just don't make squash and sweet potatoes the only veggies you eat Your body needs variety too!

    Do not allow yourself to become wrapped up in a food 'lifestyle'. That is ego, and you are not that.

        Depends on your personal circumstances and how active you are.

        If you are active, and want to avoid a depressed BMR, then no problem whatsoever.
