Cassava is starch: Cassava is tapioca and is a starch, which means carbs or carbohydrates. People usually don't lose weight by eating carbs, unless they are eating just a little bit of carbs. Eating carbohydrates makes people hungry for more, a short while later. Not sure what "provision foods" are, as that doesn't sound like an american term.
