Of course, the processed food industry works ceaselessly to convince us that we must eat highly refined starchy foods, such as breakfast cereals and white bread, trumpeting that they give us energy. But all food gives us energy. Contrary to what we have been led to believe, there is no dietary “need” to eat starchy carbohydrates at all.
I agree with that last statement. That’s how a healthy adult can live two months without any food whatsoever: any carbohydrate we need (glucose) can be made from our stores of protein and fat.
