I haven't kept up with everything Mark has written for the past two years, but he has, in the past, been comfortable with rice and white potatoes in moderation. I believe he even uses sugar (horrors!) in his coffee (or did). It seems like he is a lot more flexible and moderate in his approach than many on the forum. That's what most attracted me to this way of life. Legalism and dogma are so tiring and even stressful to me. Live and let live. I cannot do VLC and find it difficult to get enough carbs if I don't add a little potato and rice. When eating out, being able to eat some of these two definitely broadens options. It's not easy finding a winter squash on the menu at most restaurants. At home, sometimes I just need something really quick and handy and potatoes and rice help with that or the odd banana and Mr. Anthony has proven that is not a bad thing
