The McDougall Starch Based Diet is a vegan diet that has been made popular by the American Doctor John McDougall.
Its staple foods are starches that include grains, root vegetables and pastas.
Compared to the large majority of diets out there that often contain animal products in them including (Paleo diet, Atkins diet, South Beach), it is much better as it is all plant based and so can help people heal diseases, including cancer, heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
However, there are some downsides with basing your diet upon starch with grains being included.
There is more and more research now highlighting the negative effect grains can have on your health.
Grains are low in various nutrients including vitamins A, B, C and E and grain products can lead to blood sugar spikes.
