From the mouths of babes (or at least folks way younger than me ;)
One of the best presentations of the weekend was the safe starch debate involving, Paul Jaminet, Chris Kresser, Cate Shanahan, and Ron Rosedale. Let me first just say how ridiculous it is that we’re even asking the question “Is there such a thing as a safe starch?” I’m sorry but it’s stupid. Especially when it followed Chris Masterjohn’s great presentation, which explained very clearly how humans, as compared to apes, have evolved the ability to digest greater amounts of starch through salivary amylase. This is not debatable. Of course starch is safe. The question is, how much starch is safe for a given person?
