Main points:

1. population studies show no correlation between average GI of food and obesity/diabetes

2. caloric balance is the main indicator for obesity

3. high insulin levels are a product of obesity more than a cause for it

4. activity creates a caloric deficit that is not matched by a corresponding increase in appetite - therefore active people are less obese
