That doesn't surprise me. Starch is useful for gaining strength, as it supports building and maintaining muscle. Primal for inactive people is essentially a starch elimination diet because primal tells you to count fiber (wtf?) and fructose as carbs. It encourages people to completely eliminate an entire food group - starch.
