Aim for the lower calories starch selections. Since they generally have a fairly large range. If you go with 9 50 calorie starches, that is just 450 calories.. versus 9 100 calorie selections which would be 900 calories. At least on the old plans 100 calories was about the max that they would consider one starch... I think they've gotten more generous, but I think if you went a little "old school" and started counting any thing that was 50 calories worth of starch as 1 serving, that the COD would likely be OK with it.
