Proteins from Starch

Pasta, bread, rice, potatoes, grains and so on being non-complete in their amino-acid profiles… Not included into your daily macros and seen as empty calories, correct?

Not included in your protein totals, but not really empty calories. Think of them more as fuel for your workouts.
