Comprehensive List of Dangerous Starches?

Answered on August 19, 2014

I've seen people use the hilarious phrase "Safe starches" so I'm assuming that there must also be some "Dangerous starches"?

But to answer your question, probably all the grains and pseudo-grains, beans, and legumes.

Do the numbers convey some hidden meaning?

Legumes and grains? (And there is grey area there - healthy individuals may find properly prepared grains beneficial). I'd say your typical beans and fibrous grains (whole-wheat and refined) are less than ideal.

My definition of safe starch is liver and eggs.

Paul and Shou Chin Jaminet (Perfect Health Diet) coined the phrase "safe starch" - so it's probably best to refer to what they think of as not safe.

Cereal grains, especially wheat, but also corn. Only white rice is exempt.
All beans and legumes, but especially soy, peanuts and kidney beans.

They do mention that nightshades could be problematic for some people, so that would include non-sweet potatoes. But I think they feel tubers, in general, are fine.

I'm pretty close to being in line with PHD, but maybe not as strict.

Nope. Each person has a different tolerance for various foods - what's dangerous for you may be awesome for me. It's all N=1.
