    People are masters of rationalization.

    They've been trained that "a calorie is a calorie", and deep down they think diet means nothing. Just buy what is cheapest and push it down your throat.

    Thus if you have positive changes, it must be from something other than nutrition.

      I'd probably starve on the cheapest stuff. So of course I'd lose weight! See, it's not the diet doing it, it's the starvation because I simply can't swallow the disgusting cheap stuff!
      "Bread-Bread-Dinner
      It ain't makin' me any thinner
      I eat a sandwich for break-fast
      And then I have a sugar blast!
      I eat toasted bread for lunch
      And enjoy my mid-day crunch!
      At dinner I eat pasta
      And end my day with a sugar disasta!"

      From the How am I not starving??? thread. Enjoy the read.

        Wikipedia states that only 2% of dietary chol gets absorbed by the body. Maybe you can tell them that?
        I don't think there's much use in telling them anything. From my experience, people are not very rational when it comes to this stuff. The conventional wisdom diet is supposed to prevent diabetes, poor cholesterol, high blood pressure, etc., yet people who try to follow it usually still end up with these problems. It never occurs to them that maybe the conventional wisdom is not so wise.

            I agree. Somtimes I feel a bit frightened when I see how many people pick up a product that has "conscious choice!" or "healthy choice!" on the package without even reading ingredient lists or anything. They just toss it in their grocery cart. Way to be conscious of what you buy, people.

              Especially those "heart healthy" cereals, that are fat/cholesterol free and low-sodium, and made from GMO wheat paste, chemicals, sugar, and "fortified" with added vitamins/minerals because they otherwise don't qualify as food for humans.

              Oh, but they have a red heart symbol on the box, and a friendly, cute-looking character, so they can't be bad, as long as you eat it with skim milk.
