I know for a fact that starchy carbs made me fat. I can have them in huge amounts 3 times a day. In my culture we mainly eat starchy carbs with sauces or soups so, it's the main dish, kind of. Whatever can be really called food in my culture is a starchy carb.
I seldom binge, I'm not a sugary food lover, I hate food with loads of fat and have them truly ocCasionaly. However I'm super fat.
So for me slimming down equals reducing my amounts of starchy carbs consumption.
I'm losing 5.5 lbs 12 times. I'm currently left with 8 times!!!
