This means that they may do things that in fact do not contribute to their overall health - but because these things are frequently associated with healthy people, are falsely credited as being healthful.

    Case in point: I was obese and on Metformin when I ate brown rather than white rice.

    I am now healthy and lean year round, and I rarely eat brown rice. I occasionally eat white rice. I routinely eat plenty of meat, vegetables, and healthy fats. And I keep my weight down.
