I wanted to reach out to let you know how The Starch Solution has changed my life, as well as my mother’s. I am so grateful for your knowledge about a starch-based diet. I am 24-years-old and have lost a total of 70 pounds since February 2020 after becoming plant-based! In April of 2020, I was researching nutrition and diets because I knew there had to be something more I could be doing for my body and health, and that’s when I came across The Starch Solution. I started The Starch Solution and went straight into doing your plan for Maximum Weight Loss. I lost 36 pounds from just eating starches. Rewind to last February: I was 191 pounds and, 7 months earlier, had given birth to my daughter. I had a rough pregnancy and was diagnosed with Gestational Hypertension. I gained 55 pounds during pregnancy. I had a very tough labor and minutes after giving birth, I suffered from a severe hemorrhage losing 2 liters of blood and almost lost my life. That was my biggest health scare yet. I didn’t realize that my diet was the reason for my health declining so much during pregnancy. I lost weight initially after birth, but gained more weight back due to my poor diet. Now I am 128 pounds, almost 30 pounds less than I was before I got pregnant! I no longer have high blood pressure, chest pains or high cholesterol. I am so thankful that I came across your diet. It is truly such an amazing lifestyle. 


Last year, I started a YouTube channel, The Mommy Vegan, to share my weight loss journey and tell everyone about The Starch Solution. I also share simple meals that are Starch Solution compliant. I have been getting thousands of views on each video and have over 16k subscribers! Many people subscribed to my channel are starting their own Starch Solution health and weight loss journeys. I am very happy that I can inspire them! I feel so grateful to be able to share this amazing information with them! 

taylors-momMy 48-year-old mother has also lost a total 55 pounds since last February. She also started The Starch Solution last April and has lost 26 pounds! We did this journey together and have supported each other during our weight loss. She had foot pain, dizzy spells, and peri-menopausal symptoms before starting The Starch Solution. Now they are all gone! We can’t thank you enough, Dr. McDougall! This is a lifestyle that we will continue with forever. We feel amazing inside and out!
