How to Win an Argument With a Nutritionist I love nutrition, but I really hate the way it tends to be practiced. Many dietitians are NOT basing their nutrition advice on the latest science (1). The general guidelines are completely outdated. They have barely changed in the past few decades, even though nutrition science has advanced greatly. I’ve personally stopped getting into arguments about nutrition online, because it is time consuming and frustrating. But I know that a lot of people do get into these arguments often, so I’ve decided to write an article to give people some “weapons” to win these arguments easily. By far the best way to win an argument about nutrition is to have a link to a good scientific study. If you ever find yourself in an argument with an outdated nutrition professional, vegan or low-fat zealot, then feel free to use the answers and studies listed below. Make sure to bookmark this page if you tend to get in these types of arguments often! The low-fat diet is a huge failure. Studies Answer: This is a myth.

Animal protein-rich diets could be as harmful to health as smoking | Science A diet rich in meat, eggs, milk and cheese could be as harmful to health as smoking, according to a controversial study into the impact of protein consumption on longevity. High levels of dietary animal protein in people under 65 years of age was linked to a fourfold increase in their risk of death from cancer or diabetes, and almost double the risk of dying from any cause over an 18-year period, researchers found. However, nutrition experts have cautioned that it's too early to draw firm conclusions from the research. The overall harmful effects seen in the study were almost completely wiped out when the protein came from plant sources, such as beans and legumes, though cancer risk was still three times as high in middle-aged people who ate a protein-rich diet, compared with those on a low-protein diet. The study throws doubt on the long-term health effects of the popular Atkins and Paleo diets that are rich in protein. "Spend a couple of months looking at the labels on your food.

List Of Low-Carb Doctors How is caffeine removed to produce decaffeinated coffee? Fergus Clydesdale, head of the Food Science Department at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, provides this answer: "First, some background. Coffee is the second most popular beverage in the world, after tea. "The first process for decaffeinating coffee was invented by Ludwig Roselius in 1905. "There are three main decaffeination processes currently in use. "One method is water processing. "A mixture of water and green-coffee extract that has already been reduced in caffeine is circulated around the coffee beans within the extraction battery (oils in the coffee extract aid in the decaffeination process). "A second decaffeination method is the direct solvent method. "The third approach, supercritical carbon dioxide decaffeination, is very similar to the direct solvent methods, except that in this case the solvent is carbon dioxide.

Are Carbs More Addictive Than Cocaine?: The Body I'm sitting in a comfortable chair, in a tastefully lit, cheerfully decorated drug den, watching a steady line of people approach their dealer. After scoring, they shuffle off to their tables to quietly indulge in what for some could become (if it hasn't already) an addiction that screws up their lives. It's likely you have friends and family members who are suffering from this dependence—and you may be on the same path yourself. I'm in a Panera Bread outlet. The answer is that fast-burning carbohydrates—just like cocaine—give you a rush. You aren't supposed to talk this way about carbohydrates. "You could live your whole life and never eat a single carbohydrate—other than what you get from mother's milk and the tiny amount that comes naturally in meat—and probably be just fine," says Gary Taubes, the award-winning author of Good Calories, Bad Calories, which is helping to reshape the conversation about what makes the American diet so fattening.

Carbohydrate Counting 101 | Joslin Diabetes Center There are several different ways people with diabetes can manage their food intake to keep their blood glucose (sugar) within their target range and one such method is 'carbohydrate counting'. Carbohydrate, or carb counting is a method of calculating grams of carbohydrate consumed at meals and snacks. Foods that contain carb have the greatest effect on blood glucose compared to foods that contain protein or fat. What are the benefits of counting carbs? · Counting carbohydrates is a good solution for many people with diabetes. · Another benefit of counting carbohydrates is that it can bring tighter control over your glucose readings. · Lastly, if you take mealtime insulin, counting carbohydrates allows you to decide how much carb you want to eat at a meal, rather than having to eat a certain amount of carbohydrates, even if you do not want to. Who can use carbohydrate counting? Carbohydrate counting can be used by anyone with diabetes, not just people taking insulin. Tools of the Trade 1.

Too much jogging 'as bad as no exercise at all' 3 February 2015Last updated at 06:20 ET National guidelines suggest exercising for 150 minutes a week Too much jogging may be as bad for you as not putting on your running shoes at all, a report in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology says. Scientists studied more than 1,000 healthy joggers and non-joggers over a 12-year period. Those who jogged at a steady pace for less than two and a half hours a week were least likely to die in this time. But those who ran more than four hours a week or did no exercise had the highest death rates. Continue reading the main story “Start Quote No exercise recommendations across the globe mention an upper limit for safe exercise, but perhaps there is one” End QuoteJacob Louis MarottResearcher 'Upper limit' Analysing questionnaires filled out by all the people in the Danish study, scientists concluded the ideal pace was about 5mph (8km/h) and that it was best to jog no more than three times a week or for 2.5 hours in total.

How to Optimize Your Omega-6 to Omega-3 Ratio Today, most people are eating way too many Omega-6 fatty acids. At the same time, consumption of animal foods high in Omega-3 is the lowest it has ever been. A distorted ratio of these polyunsaturated fatty acids may be one of the most damaging aspects of the Western diet. Why Care About Omega-6 and Omega-3 Fatty Acids? Omega-6 and Omega-3 fatty acids are called polyunsaturated because they have many double bonds (poly = many). Our bodies don’t have the enzymes to produce them and therefore we must get them from the diet. If we don’t get any from the diet, then we develop a deficiency and become sick. However, these fatty acids are different than most other fats. The thing is… Omega-6s and Omega-3s don’t have the same effects. Of course, inflammation is essential for our survival. Put simply, a diet that is high in Omega-6 but low in Omega-3 increases inflammation, while a diet that includes balanced amounts of each reduces inflammation (2).

Modern Nutrition Policy is Based on Lies and Bad Science January 19, 2013 | by Kris Gunnars | 19,717 views | 23 Comments Two weeks ago I posted a presentation by comedian Tom Naughton about the difference between good and bad science. A must-watch for anyone interested in nutrition, in my opinion. Today, we’re back with Tom Naughton but this time he tackles the science (or lack thereof) that originally implicated fat as a cause of cardiovascular disease and shaped the dietary guidelines of the past few decades, with devastating consequences. This is actually a video split into 6 parts, total run time is a little over an hour. It starts with a small clip from Tom Naughton’s movie, Fat Head. The Seven Countries Study In the year 1958, an American scientist called Ancel Keys started a study called the Seven Countries Study, which examined the association between diet and cardiovascular disease in different countries. The problem is that he intentionally left out: The McGovern Committee Basically, the dietary goals were:
