I would add to that calorie density, chase the fibre and no liquid calories. If calorie density is too high, then the body won't meter well. The fibre is for gut health and help with satiation. Liquid calories are also metered poorly. But I suppose that is a lot to remember when you're trying to keep it simple. Calorie density would be my number 1 because it addresses much of the processed foods.

Thanks for the video. I found it interesting. I should ask the guy at work who has had a heart attack whether he's been checked for diabetes. The other guy who's had a heart attack has diabetes. The video gives me some confidence that I don't need to get a CAC and expose myself to that level of radiation. I believe my insulin sensitivity for my age is good. At least my fasting BG is 4.3. BG may not a good indicator, but it's the only one I have so far. If I was willing to get a BG tester and prick myself 6 times in 5 hours, I'd probably know more.
