Re: i crave starch

IMO, definintely! Carbohydrates also produces a chemical called seratonin, which is a calming "feel good" chemical in the brain.

Hey! Sure carbs are okay. I prefer whole grain over refined white carbs though, it's much better for you. I guess it's okay as long as you don't go crazy!
