What exactly do you mean by controlling your insulin? Keeping it consistently in a certain range?
And if you don't think calories have much to do with weight gain or loss, what do you think does? Carbs, or something else?
I know that personally, the way I've lost and maintained weight loss in the past was to eat less calories, period. For me, that meant 1 donut instead of 2, 2 Taco Bell tacos instead of 4, a bit less Coca Cola, and so on. I didn't really add anything good or remove anything bad -- I just ate less. (I would continue this plan today, but I'm trying to eat a bit healthier, just not only fight weight gain.)
