Definitely interesting and definitely a concept that I already bought into several years ago. I've never been overweight (and still am not), however I was a vegetarian for about a decade and (unintentionally) replaced a lot of proteins in my diet with carbs....and as a result ended up with a number of health issues. I feel much, much better when I include animal protein in my diet and largely avoid carbs such as bread, pasta, etc. Obviously, everyone is different and everyone has a choice, but I have always eaten fresh fruit and vegetables my entire life. It was only when I became a hard-core vegetarian did these health issues pop up.
