Low fat low sugar low salt and the odd treat and plenty exercise well its worked for me i have lost 5 stone and gained muscle for me it has to be the low sugar first then the low fat then the salt as sugar turns to fat 😊

That's true, and starch is a string of glucose molecules.

Too much protein is also easily turned to glucose.

And fructose suppresses the immune system.

All the best jules1973!
