OP, for what it's worth I did six months VLC / LC, reintroduced starch recently and feel a million times better for it. My diet's now moderate - high carb, and I feel great and haven't put on weight. Everyone's different though.
Reintroducing starchy carbs is worth it for the increase in libido alone...! IMHO

"I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.
In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."
