  • @Nourished yea I agree. How I feel after I eat is a big influence on how and what I eat as of late. Im 28 and I feel completely different after a night of binging on fast food than when I was 18

          i will be bold enough to say most of us on here do not want simply to live but to THRIVE.

          I have read everything by Taubes, Weil, Nestle, Pollan, Atkins, et al.
          I have read over 3 dozen books on nutrition in the last 20 years.
          soooooo, less than 2 books per year? is it slow-going sounding out all the big words and dragging your finger along the page so as not to lose your place?





          I thought trans fats were banned years ago.
          I know for a fact that McDonald's stopped using trans fats.
          They have been removed from about 75% of the food supply.
          mono- and di-glycerides are transfats by another name. same devil, different cloak.

          But, in fact, I can actually prove fast food is healthy for you.
          The control will be a person eating no food. Starvation.
          The experiment will be a person eating fast food.
          After about 50 to 70 days, the zero food subject will die.
          the only option in your scenario is no food or big macs? not dying from starvation does not mean your food is healthful or nutritious. it's merely sustenance. medieval beggars lived on gruel when they could get it. not dying didn't equate health. in. any. way.
          As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

            Go to the small black menu bar. Drop the menu down under "forum action" and click on "edit profile." In the column on the left, click on "edit signature."

                    One explanation is that your taste buds changed as you aged.

                    That's weird. Last time I ate a BigMac, I was STUFFED after eating like half of it. I stayed full for hours, also.

                      am not 100% sure what that is, but if you were driving and eating something that needed a fork? please, god, no.

                      some idiot woman nearly killed me the other morning because she was driving, eating yogurt and talking on her cell as i tried to cross the street. idiot.

                        Big words? You must be confusing that with pure sophistry. They had an idea, skipped the science part in the middle, then put out a book to market to people who like to feel big by cataloging knowledge to pretend they possess knowledge(see: everyone on this forum). You might have the entire collection of quack nutritionist books to present at hand, but you have no intimate working knowledge of any of it, as shown by the fact you're actually promoting it. You have the memory of the day you remembered lipid theories, and that it seemed like a cool idea, which has strayed even more from anything like a practical assembly than a lopsided mess, which precludes you from getting flour on it like a cookbook, or navigating through anything other than its associations to brandish at your opponents in an internet debate. All science requires you to assume the precepts of the field, and always allows for argument. "Read this book!" is just showcasing a profound impotence in understanding, and an appeal to authority--one which is no authority at all.

                        • blahblah. the op is the one bragging about reading weil and nestle. not me.

                          why 2 books a year about most anything warrants mention is beyond me.

                              Organic vegetables can be more harmful than GMO anyway. Is there any real difference anymore?
