Paleo Diet: More Commentary On Safe Starches

Just when you thought that the commentary on safe starches was over, Dr. John Briffa posted a follow-up post on his drbriffa.com blog entitled “Is There Such a Thing As A ‘Safe Starch’?”. “Every so often the nutrition blogosphere explodes with interest and much-fevered writing about a topic for debate.

Is Intermittent Fasting and Paleo a Good Match?
