Here is a thread on this same topic from the archives:
Starch VS. Fruit--which is better?
Also, the Perfect Health Diet is all for starchy carbs (less so fruit, although they include that as well, but do discuss keeping your fructose intake to under 50 grams a day.) Kind of a starchy twist on paleo--here is a discussion about it w/ links: http://www.marksdailyapple.com/forum...ct-Health-Diet
I say try going no fruit for a couple weeks, and using a bit of starch, then doing the opposite, and seeing what feels best _to you_. I've found eating lots of fruit leaves me w/ more food cravings and less able to IF. Eating a little starch (but not too much!) doesn't seem to impact me nearly as much as all the fruit. Larger amounts of starch though (say, more than one servings worth a day) TOTALLY has me carb craving as well, and I will also start getting bloated asap if eating too much starch. (I'm not Perfect Health Diet material, as far as the starch goes, although I find the book and site helpful in other ways.) Small amounts of lower fructose fruit (1/2 cup of berries, etc) is really no big deal in the cravings department. I'm really still working it all out for myself, and find including small amounts of either does not impact me negatively, but larger amounts of either is not a good thing for me. That said, YMMV!!
