    I am always recommending "How Not to Die" by Dr. Michael Greger to folks. He also has a non-profit called NutritionFacts.org where he reviews medical journals for the latest scientifically up-to-date nutritional facts. Spoiler alert: a plant-based diet is the healthiest diet. Not so surprising, really.

    Fat =/ fat related disease Fat related diseases are actually heart breaking yet medically facinatating

  • Roger Willms Reply

    There is indeed a dearth of basic research on diet. eatingacademy.com's Peter Attia, and the famous Gary Taubes are teaming up to do a bunch of basic research that is badly needed.

    Nutrition doesn't deter any systemic diseases.

  • Ramona Gerlach Reply

    True dat. Moreover, only very rare diseases can cause the body to be unable to use its fat reserves.

    Having sex with Earth? Do you KNOW how many diseases that fat bitch has on her?

    how high is this guy?

  • Lucinda Hammes Reply

    Dr. Oz lost all credibility for me the week he roasted Gary Taubes for supporting low-carb eating just days before he had some dude on pushing a diet plan that was....low carb.

  • Jermaine Donnelly Reply

    The problem with budgeting is that is requires the same discipline and self-control that the people who need budgeting most usually lack. So in the end, budget apps become like abandoned diet journals.

    Its not about the sticker, but vegetables today, organic or not contain alot less nutrients than when your grandparents lived. https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/soil-depletion-and-nutrition-loss/

    Taubes is wrong.

    Fat acceptance is cringe but there are diseases that keep you from losing weight.

  • Cornelius Marvin Reply

    This. This is how I get fat. Or intestinal diseases. Either or, this is not good.

  • Jedidiah Bashirian Reply

    It works but research it first people make lots of mistakes and blame the diet rather than realise they made mistakes.

  • Jewel Ferry Reply

    A calorie is not a calorie, diet-wise. See: Gary Taubes, Peter Attia, Robt Lustig, et al. How much you eat is important, but not nearly as important as what you eat.

  • Elijah Green Reply

    Here is a piece by Harriet Hall on the speaker of this lecture and his other work. https://www.sciencebasedmedicine.org/index.php/death-as-a-foodborne-illness-curable-by-veganism/ Seems he largely cherry picks data, and doesnt seem to show at all any cases where a diet with any amounts of animal products are in fact more optimal for health. The speaker has deep ties to veganism, and is a noted proponent (or zealot, if you like), and his website is largely a shill site for veganism. Some of his claims are bending interpretation of studies, or omitting context or parameters. No one worth their salt is going to claim a high vegetable diet is a poor one, but his claims to his zero animal product diet being the BEST is a matter of ideology. Edit: ALSO, if you're ever told that someone did the work so you don't have to (Ala this guy at the start of his lecture), be immediately suspicious of what they're selling. Science is an open process, if working correctly. If you cant fact check yourself, at least cross reference the people that do. Everything was sounding great in the lecture until I realized that everything he said only supported a single perspective. Health advice is rarely unilateral.

    The Keto Diet Guide App answered a lot of my unanswered questions on why including links to the research. Check the side bar abd ruled.me, too.

  • Gavin Cronin Reply

    Okay. I failed to noticed that the curriculum did not include details about nutrition. It's a bit of a surprise as obesity is the root cause of so many diseases. I mean, my GP was the first person to address about the details of my diet.

  • Nayeli Littel Reply

    Not according to Gary Taubes

  • Ebba Oberbrunner Reply

    Good nutrition fixes diabetes. Good nutrition fixes gout. Good nutrition fixes plenty of diseases. "Mental illness" isn't one disease. It's many. Some are helped by drugs, many are not.

  • Rita Rogahn Reply

    Ok, thanks. I replied above but the gist of it is that i'll do some more research before i fully commit to such a diet, apparently its way too much.

  • Orion Lynch Reply

    I'd love to see more research both into diet, and also climate (well beyond just "heat is bad")

  • Kaia O'Connell Reply

  • Imelda Wilkinson Reply

    Well, your know, they say diseases are caused by inflammation, and that's caused by your diet, eating shitty food. Very few doctors are as educated as Joe Rogan is in nutrition.

  • Genesis Kuphal Reply

    I was in India during the last Olympics. I read an article basically saying how India was great at cricket but sucked at every sport in the Olympics despite the number of people. The guy was basically saying that Indians are unathletic. This was coming from an Indian. He did talk about the lack of infustructure, nutrition, training, etc. a little.

    Diseases are for fat cats!

  • Dejuan Crist Reply

    The article has nothing to do with poverty and malnourished. How did you get to that point? The article is talking about how even with better nutrition and food security, children are malnourished due to diseases from fecal matter.

    Bahaha just days after the big thread about nutrition being pseudoscience. This article right here is a textbook example as to why people might think that. God can mods delete this or something?

  • Sean Pollich Reply

    What worked for me was low carb, the best book I can recommend on the subject is "Why we get fat, and what to do about it", by Gary Taubes.

    #Being fat is not healthy. No amount of yelling otherwise will change that. Being fat increases the risk of cardiovascular diseases.

  • Paige Bartell Reply

    You're wrong. Also your article just shows that a perfect vegan could theoretically be as healthy as a non vegan diet. In practice veganism is less healthy http://journals.plos.org/plosone/article/asset?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0088278.PDF

    There is also the work with a low fat vegan diet by Caldwell Esselstyn. He published reversal of arterial plaque in Lancet, one of the leading medical journals.
