Late last year I changed order #3, which used to read “Eat less starch and sweets”. I was embarrassed about that order because I knew it can’t be right. In China and India, the two leanest nations, people eat lots of starch in the form of rice and potatoes. They just eat few sweets. So non-sweet carbs by themselves must be okay.
The thing to really avoid is (1) sugar and (2) sweeteners regardless of calories and (3) white bread, because these things vigorously drive up insulin without satisfying hunger. Fatness is not about calories, friends; it is about insulin. Read The Obesity Code by Jason Fung MD.
