7. All carbs are not created equal.
The multi-grain bread I make in my bread machine is not the same as a loaf of Wonderbread. An apple isn't the same as a Snickers. I think carbs shouldn't be the enemy, but refined carbs should be. I think that is the difference between the Mediterranean diet and the Standard American Diet--they eat more fresh foods and fewer highly refined foods than we do. I don't know for sure but I'd bet that they cook from scratch more, too.
