Can I eat yucca (cassava) or taro root?

Yucca (cassava) and taro root can be counted as grains, but they have considerably more carbohydrates and far more calories than sweet potatoes and yams, so it’s recommended to eat them infrequently, as they may stall your weight loss.


In the weight-loss phase, you would only eat them in the morning, since there is no grain at lunch or dinner on the weight-loss plan.
