MYTH: Avoid White Potatoes and Other Starches

Foods that are high in starch such as beans, rice and pasta are actually an important way to get and store energy for the body. While white potatoes and corn get a bad rap, let it be known that you can maintain a healthy weight while eating these two foods in moderation. Potatoes are a rich source of vitamin C and several B complex vitamins, and corn is high in fiber and other nutrients. How you prepare them makes the difference between healthy and unhealthy. Adding a lot of butter or heaping on high-fat toppings, like cheese or sour cream, is what will pack on the pounds
