You must expend a ton of calories each day. 4000kcal is a TON of food. I've never ate that much on a regular basis, even while gaining 2lbs each week training 4-5 days a week.
You do realize starchy foods are complex sugars, right?
No way that's correct. Though there's not much difference, high fat, protein, and relatively low carb diets are proven superior to low fat or low fat/protein diets in the short AND long run.
...Over the next 20 years, Williams gradually began to realize that "idiosyncrasies might be widespread rather than extremely rare." In time, he decided that they were in fact extremely widespread. In time, he decided that "each of us is built in a highly distinctive way in every particular, and that this is the basis of individuality." He decided further
that human bodies can't be averaged and that an adequate single picture of the human body, or any of its major parts, cannot be drawn. A picture which purports to show the human body is bound to be misleading and may be vicious in its effects.
Williams wrote that
normal individuals are highly distinctive with respect to their stomachs, esophagi, hearts, blood vessels, bloods, thoracic ducts, livers, pelvic colons, sinuses, breathing patterns, muscles and their system of endocrine glands. In all of these cases inborn differences are observed which are often far beyond what we see externally.
And remember that the differences we can see among individuals externally are sufficient that we can identify a particular individual from among hundreds or even thousands who are superficially similar in appearance just by looking at him or her. If the internal differences among individuals are even greater than these, then they must be significant indeed.

Ask how to lose weight and suddenly everyone's an expert.
Actually. Your body does not store glucose, it uses it for energy in a regular diet. Your body does store fat though when your body is told to store fat due to insulin secretion.
The human body needs surprisingly little glucose to run...
The brain is the main reason we need to eat -some- glucose in a day, but your body will make it with protein if it has to.
So I think more protein is the way to go.
... But lately I'm reading articles saying that too much protein can shorten your lifespan.

Inactive lifestyle -1000 - 1500kcal (sitting around all da
Mild to moderate activity - 2000kcal (regular light exercise)
Decent activity level - 2500kcal ( regular moderate to high intensity exercise)
This is a VERY rough guide. I was chucking 5000kcal per day down me last time I did Norway just to maintain. Want to lose weight? Less crap food and run more.
I eat nuts and other stuff

I was always told by my mother (who was a nurse) "everything in moderation, even moderation". you can eat whatever you want just not the entire tub of ice cream have one piece of fish not three etc, studies have shown that eating five to six snack size meals may be better than the regular three large ones we tend to eat for energy and nutrient absorbtion throughout the day it is supposed to also reduce craving for food as a craving generally means your body is telling you it wants something.
in the winter months add more foods with vitamin D in them cus your not getting as much since there is less sunlight.
basically go ahead and have some crisps just not the whole bag and not every day.
good one mate/
