Been only eating Pringles for the last two weeks. When I discovered that the cause of my terrible state was caused by junk food like that, I immediately thrrew everything away. Sorry if this is the wrong sub, I havent slept more than 4 hours for days so everything is hazy.

How long can I expect it to take to not feel terrible anymore? Is there a way to speed up the recovery?

I was doing my own research on whether or not French fries are healthy. Here's what I found: (If i'm wrong, let me know, i'm no expert)

Potato section:

  • High in nutrients, obviously. Like vitamins and potassium.

  • The carbohydrates are complex. (The good carb)

  • Removing the skin is a bad idea. The skin contains much of the nutrients.

Vegetable oil section:

  • High in unsaturated fat. Which based on my current knowledge, is very healthy.

  • That's the only thing they have, but maybe a little saturated fat if my memory is right. (The bad fat)

The only health risk I found is people putting too much salt on. So if you don't salt them, or salt in moderation, then they are healthy, right?

Is there any downside to a 23:1 intermittent fasting type diet in terms of the way our bodies absorb nutrients from a large meal? If so what is the best way to go about eating this one large meal for health?

Hello, I am curious are there any people basing their nutritional choices on the foods effect for pH of the body? Does it have any merit at all, or are the "alkaline" diets a quackery?

The common paradigm is that it is healthier to 'eat' your nutrients rather than to supplement with them in their pure form.

I have always taken this to mean that vitamins(and other various "good" compounds" in less bioavailable states are more common in supplementation rather than food (such as cyanocobalamin vs methylcobalamin), and also the digestibility goes up when they are eaten along with food.

However, it occurred to me that many see this as a reason to say that it is always more ideal to get your nutrients this way rather than, say, the soylent method. I don't know of research which supports this (not saying it isn't out there actually, I just don't know of it, so please post it if you have some)

Assuming you had a version of nutritional shake that gave you the optimal nutrient ratio, fiber, compounds (whatever they may not be)- perhaps taken in different parts throughout the day to maintain efficient use of different pathways, would it not be at least as efficient as eating "whole foods"?

The only argument I can think of is that there are beneficial compounds in these foods which we have not yet isolated (which I have no doubt is true), however this still doesn't prove the axiom "it is INHERENTLY better to be eating your nutrients rather than supplementing with them" - rather, it just shows us that we have more compounds to learn about, especially into how they interact during the digestion and utilization process.

I currently have a girlfriend who chooses not to eat red meat for the health benefits and has sparked my curiosity about these "benefits" and whether they can simply be achieved just either reducing the amount of more fatty cuts of meat or simply eating less of it. For a little background of my own dietary habits regarding meat, I've have always tried to balance my meat intake by eating lots of vegetables throughout the day or simply reduce the amount of meat I have within a meal. Tofu is often eaten within my family but isn't ever served to replace meat but to supplement it (often being cooked with ground beef or pork). I suppose that the biggest difference would be iron intake (besides the obvious fat differences) or at least being more mindful of it but is that all there is to it? Additionally while I can easily find tips and suggestions about eating meat after years of being a vegetarian, but its a lot harder to find things about returning to red meat from a diet with meat. Is there a transitional phase for those that cut red meat since they do still consume animal based proteins.

have been eating a pound of stewed beef every day and dump out atleast 50-60% of the broth.

Never thought twice about it, but then yesterday and today I had a pound of steak and felt suuuper satisfied.
