    Even if it is statistically significant, there's a big difference between statistical significance and practical significance. For example, if someone could extend their life by 6 months (on average)...

    True, and sometimes the results do carry over.

    Nutrition 'science' and medical research often reminds me of this video:

    Do any of the studies you've seen go into any detail? Ideally, it'd be nice to segment the data to some degree by looking at all-cause mortality, mortality related to heart disease, mortality related...

    This is highly debatable. Those ratios work for some people, but definitely not everyone. Besides, using percentages as a guideline is often useless because the optimal ratios depend on the total...

    Absolutely. Even then, there are always degrees of consistency and evidence. It seems to me that in a lot of nutrition research the degrees of evidence are weak, but it's the best we can currently...

    Thanks for all of the links. I'll definitely check those out.



    I'd just like to see something that actually backs up the claim that PUFAs from natural sources pose any real risk to healthy...

    I'm no expert, but both of these seem pretty weak. And that's not to say you're wrong about PUFAs -- just that there might not be much evidence in your favor yet. If you have anything more solid, I'm...

    Are there any RCTs in humans that support this view?

    I'm completely ignorant on PUFAs, so I tried poking around online and this was the only thing I found (which doesn't exactly support your...

    What does "carbs are full of calories" mean? A single gram of carbs is 4 calories (which is the same as protein), while a single gram of fat is 9 calories.

    Well, now you're talking about a separate issue. Here was your original comment that I was responding to:

    I always hear that too, but it's hard to know if it's reality or if people are simply deluding themselves when they say it.

    Here are two articles that discuss the topic in greater detail:

    That's a tricky question.

    On one hand, weight loss takes time. You said you've only been stalling for a month or so, which is really nothing to lose any sleep over. Especially when you consider...

    Sure, our ancestors never dieted on purpose. But there still were times that they had to go without, and their bodies would tap into its energy stores / excess fat. So isn't that pretty similar to...

    I don't know. That probably depends on your goals. If you're trying to lose fat, I doubt any stalls would be a result of eating too few calories (although it could have other negative consequences,...

    Good point.

    I think the idea that keto is best for weight loss comes from the fallacy that being in ketosis automatically means burning up stored body fat. In reality, being in ketosis means you...

    Weight loss is simple in theory, but hard in practice. But that's true of any behavioral change. And that's probably why behavioral changes have such high failure rates across the board, whether...
