On red meat: "this is sure to be controversial"
5 systematic reviews, including 100's of studies, millions of participants, RCTs, show little evidence for adverse #cancer or cardiovascular outcomes…
@AnnalsofIM ★editorial- 6 papers
@aaronecarroll @DrTiff_
@AnnalsofIM @aaronecarroll @DrTiff_ @IUMedSchool The 6 papers/guidelines are all #openaccess
This does indeed fulfill the Dunning–Kruger effect
(The less people know, the more they actually think they know) owing, in part, to poor methodology/analysis/bias of #diet studies
@AnnalsofIM @aaronecarroll @DrTiff_ @IUMedSchool What a wacky day for #diet research:
1. Red meat may not be so bad for health risk, after all? (I haven't had for ~40 yrs)
2. ⬆️vegetarian diet by increasing choices; see @PNASNews by @eegarnett89 @MarteauTM
3. Cooked plant food ->⬆️ gut #microbiome diversity @NatureMicrobiol

Every single diet zealot seems to use the term 'this is how we evolved eating' in their argument to support their way of eating.

There's a couple of issues with this...
Number 1: it can not be proven or disproven to be accurate > hard to perform a recall on a Homosapien from 20,000BC.

Number 2: whether you're a vegan, keto, carnivore or other, you could all technically be correct. Which kinda makes the whole argument a bit null and void.
Where your ancestors were placed geographically would have influenced how they ate, and the changing seasons would also have a major part to play on the availability of different foods.

What is the the IDEAL DIET?

I've spent the last few years experimenting and reading about a bunch of diets and I feel pretty certain about some Ayurvedic principles that work to improve the health of EVERYONE.

Sharing insights 👇👇👇
According to Ayurveda there's no such thing as an IDEAL DIET for EVERYONE, because Ayurveda believea bio-individuality.

Thus one man's poison is another man's nectar, HOWEVER there are certain health principles which are universal. Discussing that below. Simple stuff for all.
1) Sugar is pure poison - No exaggeration at all. Sugar has addictive properties that work very similar to the way cocaine works on our brain. Just google "sugar cocaine addiction". In rats sugar is 8 TIMES MORE ADDICTIVE THAN COCAINE. Use jaggery (brown, unprocessed) not the

1/ Is willpower myth or muscle? Using eating & #dieting as an example, let’s discuss the science behind #willpower, when willpower fails, and what we can learn from all of this to help us break bad #habits. A long thread, but follow along to learn why willpower is really a myth.
2/ If you're a #primarycare provider trying to help patients lose weight, a #nutritionist trying to get someone to stick to a healthy #diet, or simply trying to eat better yourself: Do you ever feel frustrated, helpless or like a failure in changing #habits?
3/ Why is habit change so hard? Have we not come up with the perfect strategy? Do we simply need more #willpower (or a kick in the pants)?

For years you’ve been told that willpower is the 🔑 to breaking bad habits… but what if I told you that science says otherwise?

Food used to be my crutch. I can be quoted saying, "I'll never be skinny again cause I like food too much"....

The truth is my body was addicted to the constant exogenous supply of glucose.

I used to have arthritis in my knee, and if I didn't eat, I got severe....
Hunger pangs and hypoglycemia.

A doctor when I was young told me I had insulin resistance and told me the solution was to keep candy in my pocket.... worsening this condition

I counted calories
I ate sugar laden protein bars
I got energy drinks (cause at least they have ...
Metabolism boosters.... or so I thought)
I took diet pills
I ate sugars and treats in moderation
I went to the gym and did copious amounts of cardio (and one time I did get skinny and keep it off for a few years in the military)
But after I regained, I could not get it back off..
