    Interesting read. Thanks for the link. The quote below pretty much sums up what I think about all of the scientific studies (and conclusions). What are you supposed to believe?

    “Almost every single nutrient imaginable has peer reviewed publications associating it with almost any outcome,” John P.A. Ioannidis, a professor of medicine and statistics at Stanford and one of the harshest critics of nutritional science, has written. “In this literature of epidemic proportions, how many results are correct?”

    The big common sense things are pretty much undisputed except by cranks. Ignoring the big picture to focus on smaller things like weird claims about individual foods or debates over percentage of various macros is a good way to drive yourself crazy. Don't like the perfect be the enemy of the good.

    This is a good piece: https://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2014/03/science-compared-every-diet-and-the-winner-is-real-food/284595/
