The Starch-Plus Diet

How To Lose Weight and Regain Health Eating Your Favorite Comfort Foods

About the Book

Imagine you could eat tasty, filling food while reaching or maintaining a lean body weight. No more stress, no complications of weighing food, counting calories, watching portions or painful exercise. Well that in a nutshell is what this lifestyle is all about. 

For a few years now I’ve had amazing success eating a starch-based diet. I lost the excess 35 pounds I had, my cholesterol dropped from ‘off the charts’ to 112 mg/dL and my blood pressure went from 145/85 down to 105/65 and even lower at times.

You may have a lot of preconceptions about how you should lose weight. I receive a lot of questions on my social media channels so I hope I can address most of your concerns in this book.

This book is based on my years of my experience with the lifestyle, personal learning, interviews with some of the best plant-based doctors in the industry, and all the questions I have received from my viewers. If you read this book and use my recipes you will have a really good foundation to be successful with this lifestyle. Plus get all future updates to the book, free!


"Will you are an inspiration to me. I bought both your ebooks. I went strict on McDougall's plan last year. Lost steadily in a month and a half I went from 147 to 129. No effort. Ate lots of mcdougall food. But was lazy and ate the few things over and over. Got bored and slowly caved in to oil. Then wine. Then hungry because not eating foods that satiated me. And I gained lots back. So I'm motivated by you. Today I made your banana oat pancakes. To simply "die" for. Yesterday was first day back on. Big bowl of pasta and fat free marinara at dinner. In one day lost 3 pounds. I'm Syked. You are my guru. Lol

"I am truly SO proud of you and what you have accomplished! Because we are both guitarists in search off Jazz instruction and our mutual admiration of Robert Conti, I met you on your "My Robert Conti Learning Experience" Facebook page. It was there that lead me to your "Potato Strong" Facebook page discussing weight loss and health, based around eating potatoes and starch based plant based foods. I thought to myself "this guy is off his rocker and totally nuts!" Everybody knows carbs, especially potatoes, makes you fat! Being extremely skeptical, I had to check out your Potato Strong page and see what was up. I think you were just less than a year into your Dr. McDougall plan. I was surprised at your success! So, after gaining and losing between 30-60 pounds 3-4 times in my life, trying several fad diets, I decided I would commit 100% and try your crazy potato starch based plant based diet for 30 days. I was TOTALLY amazed! I lost 18 pounds, blood pressure and glucose dropped and I was never hungry and felt great! Here I am 2 years later at 50 pounds lighter! I have reached my goal! My blood pressure, cholesterol and glucose are now in the healthy range and I feel better than I have in years! I followed yours and Dr. McDougall's advice and my exercise program was easy and simple. I bought a bicycle and rode it or walked about 30 minutes 4-5 days a week as my main source of exercise. Also, I occasionally did push ups, ab crunches and some light dumbbell exercises maybe once or twice a week. Thanks to you and Dr. McDougall I have found out how to stay trim and healthy by simply eating nutritious, natural, easy to prepare, inexpensive food without harm to a single animal or the planet. I hope we can meet in person someday so I can personally thank you. Great job my friend and much success with your new book!!!"
