Hi, I’m Will aka Potato Strong. I can help with the backup plan for cooked starches as I have lots of tasty recipes. I'm an average, sedentary person who want to spread the word about healthy, low fat high carb low fat eating without doing tons of exercise. This means lots of potatoes, such as mashed potatoes, shepherd’s pie, baked fries, gravy, chili, tacos, nachos, pizza and other yummy foods. I love salads and fruit as well. These are all low fat, no oil recipes but rest assured they’re soooo good!
I was a big meat eater in the past, living in Alberta, Canada which is cattle country. Over 10 years ago we went vegetarian mostly due to animal welfare, but would still eat fast food on occasion that had turkey/chicken or a sub. I’d feel bad of course but it was hard to kick the addiction. For many years we’ve been basically vegetarian but looking back we ate a lot of cheddar cheese, mayonnaise, oil, sour cream, etc. My absolute heaviest was over 220 lbs as a meat eater, but even in the last couple years it crept up to around 214 lbs on a vegetarian diet.
After watching Forks over Knives, Engine 2 diet and reading books such as Food for Life, The Starch Solution, Pleasure Trap, The China Study and others I finally decided to throw out all the junk food and go 100% low fat high carb. I think this is key as moderation doesn’t seem to work. Whenever I ate something fattening I would start thinking about it a lot and end up eating it again within a few days. I like to think of myself as an addict, moderation doesn’t seem to work for cigarette smokers and alcoholics! This food is just too addictive!
My family has a historyof heart disease. Lots of heart attacks and related issues so as you get older you start to worry about those sorts of things.
I now live in New Brunswick, Canada (on the east coast above Maine). That's what I'm all about!
