This isn't remotely true.

This sums it up in detail:

And it is typically fat you store as fat...since it is already fat. You need to eat the least calorie dense foods that keep you the fullest longest - those are what you'll lose weight best on. Find your high satiety foods. The "Carbohydrate Curve" only seems to work in the beginning because you're removing flours, sugars and other low-satiety, low-nutrient, high calorie foods from your diet. If you simply stick to fruit and potatoes, the "Carbohydrate Curve" falls apart because they are generally high-satiety, high-nutrient, lower calorie foods. One of the greatest satiety-per-calorie foods in existence is the white potato. It is one of the highest GI starch sources on the planet, but it is one of the most effective tools for weight loss because they are extremely difficult to overeat, very nutritious and stick with you for a long time. Potatoes and whole eggs for me are two of the best fat loss tools.
