I started Dr. McDougall's Starch Solution plan and I lost 2.5 lbs. on the first day. I ate starches the whole weekend and stuck to the plan and gained 3 lbs! I did eat a couple of pieces of bread and some homemade rice pudding with stevia and a little regular sugar so maybe that's what caused me to gain.
So, I'm going to try cutting out bread and as much sugar as I can this week and see how it goes.
If anyone else has done this diet and lost weight, I'd be happy to hear any pointers.
