本书金句 Key insights

● It’s unhealthy to prioritize certain foods based on their calorie content. A 200-calorie serving of french fries is much more unhealthy, for example, than a 200-calorie serving of nuts.

● These refined, or processed, carbohydrates give us an immediate boost of energy. The body in essence is flooded with glucose, which causes insulin levels in your blood to spike. In turn, fat cells work to absorb excess amounts of glucose and fatty acids to remove all that sugar in your blood.

● When blood sugar levels are high, your pancreas secretes even more insulin, which can overstimulate cell growth. Your molecular control system may be unable to stem that growth, which can increase your chances of developing cancer.

● If you’re consuming unhealthy foods, you’ll take in more calories than you need and gain weight. Aim to take in a high amount of nutrients from smaller portions, instead.

● It’s also important to eat mindfully, and indfulness is an important part of staying in control of your cravings. Your cells will become more sensitive to insulin again once you cut out processed carbohydrates from your diet, so you won’t need to eat as many carbs to feel satisfied – as long as you eat mindfully.
