    no sugar OR starch. So where do i get my carbs from??

    Primal Fuel
    All these anti inflammatory diets suggests no sugar (which rule out all fruits right?) and no starch. So where can i find 100g of carbs per day? I thought sugar and starch where the only two sources of carbs.

    And Im not interested in eating 40 pounds of some weird Himalayan flowers per day or something like that. Something practical.

    You can get plenty of carbs from nuts, vegetables and low sugar fruit such as berries. And the primal diet includes taters, tapioca, though most of us eshew the skin.

    yes i eat alot of tapioca. would hate to give that up.


    OK.. so when someone says "no sugar", berries and low sugar fruits are still considered tolerated??

    Can you please give an example of a vegetable high in carbs but no starch or sugars?

    What diet is this that said no starch or sugars? Did they really mean absolutely none? Because there is a whole world of healthy fruits, roots and tubers that can be eaten that are not going to trigger inflammation.

    I'm doing it too. And you are right it is hard to find enough carbs. A lot of the things people are suggesting are either nightshades (potatoes) or starch (I hate tell you but tapioca is pure starch). From what I understand certain fruits are allowed but they must be fully ripe for example bananas, pears and apples. Of course you can eat berries but that won't get you very far in terms of carbs or satisfying hunger. I've been eating sweet potatoes which everyone seems to love but w/o butter I can't really get that excited about them.

    Recently I made a mash of celery root and carrot that was pretty good. First I saute the carrot and celery root in lard (I have some I rendered from our own hog) then I add chicken broth (homemade) and a couple of whole cloves of garlic, I then cook it until everything is tender, if there's still too much liquid I take the top off and evaporate the excess. Then of course I mash the whole thing and add salt.

    How long have you been on the protocol? I'm just about 2 weeks in (doing it for Hashimoto's so I'm not having goitrogenic foods either) and I'm finding it very limiting. I'm often hungry and since I'm not actively trying to lose weight I'm not that keen on feeling hungry. I'm getting tired of coconut in all it's forms.

    Veggies.

    Depending on your goals, you can still eat some rice or sweet potatoes or something. Starch won't hurt.
