How much rice, potatoes, and pasta should you eat per week. I think pasta
should be once a week but I'm not sure about rice and potatoes. Anyone
knows?

There is no RDA for "starch" or carbohydrates, which are basically fuel.

If you stay away from refined carbs ( things made out of white flour,
white rice, sweeteners, etc .. ) I ( who am not a degreed expert ) would
say eat all you want if you are happy with your weight.

try bulgur wheat. Vitamins, minerals, and lots of fibre.

There isn't an RDA for any of these foods. I am not qualified to offer
dietary advice but the consensus opinion seems to be that refined
grains like white rice and white pasta should be used sparingly and
wholegrains (a category that includes wholewheat pasta and brown rice)
should be a staple part of your diet. I'm not sure about potatoes. For
some
reason the Harvard School of Public Health lumps them in with
the refined grains.
