    It depends on your body type and your overall caloric intake. If you eat more calories than you consume you get fat. If you eat too much starch and you aren't an ectomorph, chances are you'll gain weight. But if you don't have enough glycogen (sugar storage) in your muscles and you need it for weight lifting chances are you won't be able to do that exercise.

    Too Much Starch

    starches are just complex carbohydrates. how many carbohydrates a person needs depends on the activity level of that individual and their body composition. starches are converted by enzymes and hormones to glycogen. glycogen is then converted by another process into ATP which is a cellular energy source used to help perform muscular contractions.

    It's very hard to not consume enough starch. the body can convert proteins and lipids (fats) into glycogen.

    By "starch" what kind of starch are you talking about?

    I'm not sure that too much starch does anything to your body. Was that scientific enough for you?
