• starchy foods, like potatoes, which are not that
great because they contain no protein and have a
fairly high glycemic index;
• grains: wheat, bulgur, buckwheat, corn;
• pulses: lentils, field beans, chickpeas.
To summarize, you can choose from rice, pasta, lentils, semolina,
green peas, beans, potatoes, wheat or buckwheat, as all contain
complex carbs."

So it looks to me like the typo is the one that says .5 to 1 oz. Or it could be that they meant to put 1/2 to 1 CUP, instead of 1/2 to 1 ounce. That would be a minuscule amount of food. 150 to 200 grams is the same as 5-7 oz.
Okay... I'm now conflicted. The 0.5 to 1.0 sounds small, but when I look at it in terms of pasta, the box says 2 ounces is a serving, and 5-7 ounces seems like a huge amount of food. I'm going to ask tonight at the workshop...

Sheesh! Who knew Phase 4 was going to be so confusing?
