QUOTE from Dr Fung (emphasis mine): 

Step 1 – Don’t put sugar in …

The first step is to eliminate all sugar and refined starches from your diet. Sugar has no nutritional value and can be safely eliminated. Starches are simply long chains of sugars. Highly refined starches such as flour or white rice are quickly digested into glucose. The optimum strategy is to eat little or no refined carbohydrates.” [1]
