Hi, my name is Stella Metsovas, and today we're going to be talking about the serving sizes of starches. Oh starches how much we all love them, I know, bread, pasta, so good but you have to understand one important thing not only from the serving size of pasta, but the foods that you consume, the actual food groups like starches can make or break your weight gain or weight loss okay, so make sure that your food groups are always in the correct amounts and starches are one of the most important things to look at including sugars. My top picks for vegetable-based starches, so starchy vegetables, those are my number one picks are sweet potato, yams, squash, these are all top picks. The Mayo Clinic has a great resource to actually check your serving sizes of starches. With that said, I'd like to divide the amount of serving sizes according to activity level. Number one, sedentary, number two, moderately active and number three, someone that is really active almost like an athlete. So always make sure to look at starches based on your activity level. Again they can make or break your attempts to be healthy and lean.
