    Lettuce definitely has a taste and that taste is terrible

    Protein Drinks I would much rather eat my calories than drink them, but of course I am not attempting to gain either.

    Broccoli and asparagus are both delicious, but don't taste alike at all.

    They do to me. Asparagus just tastes like broccoli that's made of disappointment. It's not bad, but it's just pointless when broccoli exists, tastes way better and costs less.

    In that I think eating a wide variety of different vegetables is important, and like to eat seasonally when possible (here anyway, broccoli and asparagus are in season at somewhat different times, although I grow broccoli and not asparagus typically), I guess I'm pleased they taste different to me, both good in their own ways (and to me asparagus tastes especially good in some dishes I associate with spring and early summer -- it's not quite in season yet, but I adore asparagus with Easter dinner, for example, or in an omelet with leeks).

    Asparagus costs more here too, but neither exactly breaks the bank. Asparagus does tend to taste best in season and local, IME, although it can be good at other times, whereas broccoli (like cauliflower and zucchini, among other veg) tends to have less difference and to be easily available and just fine all year round (which is why I often find asparagus more exciting when good asparagus is available).

    Asparagus is just rubbish expensive broccoli and bacon is absolutely revolting.

    *TURKEY bacon is revolting

    I prefer turkey bacon to regular bacon because of less fat

    For weight loss it is eating less calories than you burn. To live a long life and be in optimal health what we eat makes a difference.
    I also believe- backed by science, long term studies and cultures- health is about lifestyle, plant rich diet and active lifestyle.

    On average, sure. Obviously we can all find people who apparently won the gene lottery and had an unhealthy lifestyle and lived long and healthy lives, vs others who ate well and exercised and were in good shape and yet died young or got some terrible disease, etc.

    I don't think this -- if not taken to an extreme (such as a claim that only those training super hard or eating a very restrictive diet) -- is controversial or unpopular at all. I also would agree that overall diet and lifestyle and fitness matter for health, all else equal, and think the blue zones are relevant to that (and that lifestyle means more than food and exercise, of course).

    I am talking about the Blue Zones- NOT ANYTHING that is a "current" trend, fad, phase or some celerity propaganda. I am talking about elders of Okinawa, Japan, Parts of Costa Rica, Italy and Greece. It is not high fat and low carb. It is a vital way to live.

    Not sure why you mentioned high fat and low carb, as I said nothing about that. I mentioned the Blue Zones, in fact. Like I said, if you are talking about that sort of thing, I don't think it's an unpopular or controversial or unusual opinion at all. (Blue zone diets can be relatively high or low fat.)

    Lenny and larry did something to their cookies. I just bought two boxes after not having them for half a year and yuck!!!!!!!!!!! They are completely different. I went through a phase of eating 2 of the 4oz cookies a night and they are completely different now. Not sweet at all and have a terrible aftertaste.

    Oh! Here's a really unpopular opinion - I really don't prefer hot coffee. I love it cold, and drink it that way year round. I also prefer iced tea to hot tea, though I will consent to drinking it hot on occasion when it's reeeeeeeeeally cold outside.
