Thank you for your post,

Delicata, acorn and butternut squash are winter squash and considered a starchy vegetable.

1/2 cup is about 40 calories and 1/2 starch exchange.

You can add these items to your menu by utilizing the Limited Free Foods (about 90 calories total). This should not affect your weight loss success.

Best wishes!
