4 “Superfoods” And Their Effectiveness

Yes, it appears my output this week, for both Return Of Kings and my own website, is very culinary-centric indeed. But it’s always worth talking about food: After all, one does try to eat every day if he can help it.


One of the major topics discussed in this corner of the internet is that of dietary supplements: which ingredients and panaceas will serve to give you an edge over the foot-dragging normies that clog the road in your daily life.

Personally speaking, I never really cared for specifically marketed supplements, finding that just sticking to the basics—the “Don’t Eat Shit” diet, getting a good night’s sleep, not masturbating—already makes me healthier and more alert than your average slob. But of course there is a lot of talk about “superfoods” and things that can allegedly give you an edge. But how accurate are these claims?

So with that being said, here’s four foods that can be commonly purchased that are often talked about as being great “superfoods”, and the truth about whether these claims have any basis to them.

1. Fish/Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Fish is, of course, a quintessential “brain food” that many of you are likely aware of already. This is because the central nervous system (Whether it be the axons, synapses, glial cells, neurons, etc.) is made almost entirely of fatty tissues, and the fatty acids and healthful oils in fish will of course gird and enhance these neural connections.

To clarify further, the fish—and fish oil—that you are likely hearing being bandied about as “buzz words” in your day to day life are the nigh-mythical “Omega 3” fatty acids, which you’re supposed to be eating more of, and the “Omega 6” fatty acids that you should reduce your intake of. But what do these mean?

To put it very simply: Omega 3 fatty acids are what are known as “polyunsaturated fatty acids”, that have a double covalent bond in the third carbon pair from the end of the fatty acid “tail”—which is to say that the bond shares electrons between the two carbon atoms, if you will remember your chemistry classes.

Omega 6 fatty acids, in contrast, are found in vegetable fats, and while they are by themselves not particularly harmful (being similar polyunsaturated fatty acids), excess consumption of them has been linked to breast cancer in women and enzyme dysfunction. This is likely where any problem comes from, as some studies have shown the average person today eats a ratio of 15:1 Omega 6:Omega 3, and this is likely a problem that can be solved with the aforementioned “don’t eat shit” diet.

Studies have not shown that these Omega 3 fish oils prevent cancer or heart disease as is commonly claimed, but the mental health benefits and the promotion of stable nervous function would surely be enough reason to eat fish on a fairly regular basis. They also promote proper metabolic function.


2. Taurine

Taurine is a carbon based acidic compound that is indeed essential to various bodily functions, such as skeletal muscle function, cardiovascular function, and bile production. However, it occurs naturally in meat and fish, and indeed, vegans often need supplementation for it. Increasing one’s taurine intake has not been shown to have negative effects, nor has it shown any “souped up” functions in test patients either, contrary to what your “dudical” energy drink cans say because “taurine sounds like a bull, brah!” You shouldn’t be drinking energy drinks anyway; they taste like ass and philosophically embody everything wrong with the 1990s.


Not dieticians

3. Goji berries

Goji berries, also known as “wolf berries,” are a fruit native to East Asia, part of the nightshade family that also includes the potato and the tomato, among others.

These berries are perfectly edible and are about as healthy as the average dried berry you can eat, but therein lies the key: it’s not any MORE healthy than your average occidental fruit. Sadly, many people are fooled by marketing campaigns playing up the faux-“Oriental Mysticism” angle. These marketing campaigns are, coincidentally, often run by the same Southern California burnout douchebags that push Taurine on you as well. Feel free to eat them if you want, they won’t hurt you, but I wouldn’t pay any more than you would for a box of raisins or cranberries.


4. Quinoa

I’m going to be blunt: Stop eating this. It’s nutrient composition is the same as any other comparable cereal grain such as brown rice, so it won’t hurt you. However, the increased consumption of it amongst trendy gourmands—I’m using the proper term for what idiots refer to as “foodies”—in the West has led to it increasing in price in its home region of the Andean plateau. In other words, trend-hopping Westerners are making it more difficult for people to purchase it as a subsistence crop.

I hate having to speak on this tack, as it comes off as vaguely social justice warrior-ish, but seeing as I generally wish all peoples of the world well, and feel that there are plenty of ways for people to make their plates “cooler” without leaving their home, I’ll have to ask people to stop hyping up quinoa.


If you MUST be better than the Joneses, and you want a hip and cool new cereal grain, try sorghum, which grows in your metaphorical backyard.


And as I laugh at the very concept of sorghum being cool and hip (I have some bad memories of the grain), I will reiterate that eating a sensible, clean diet is the surest pathway to health.

    1. ROK never disappoints…
      fresh new article and the first comment starts the Kratom jokes! Well done; I missed the kratom references.

      1. You can’t miss Kratom references because they are omnipresent.

        1. Foods fight for the right to be labelled Superfoods. Only a few make the cut. Superfoods fight for the right to be in the vaunted company of Kratom. Kratom looks with contempt and disdain upon them. Whispers, “unworthy”.
          Gets on with its day.

        2. I’m earning over $7k thirty days at work part-time . I kept hearing some individuals inform me what amount they can get on the internet and thus I decided to examine it . Very well , it seemed all real and has improved my way of life . This is where i started>>>

  1. Quinoa is quite tasty (it has a light nutty flavor), gluten-free (so I can serve it to gluten-intolerant friends) and is overall a nice cereal food. Too bad the damned hipsters have ruined it and driven up the prices. If quinoa costs more, try amaranth (even better than quinoa with more minerals, but harder to find), buckwheat (same as quinoa), or just plain rice.

    1. To throw a little bit of a PSA into this, if you’re looking to cook for gluten-intolerant people you should ALWAYS check the labels.
      I had to learn this the hard way after some delicious buckwheat noodles (soba) turned out to actually be wheat noodles with buckwheat. Three migraines and a week on the john later, I learned my lesson.

      1. Lesson learned.
        I accidentally became an expert on gluten because my former spouse was diagnosed with celiac disease when we were engaged. Doctor delivered the news with an interesting spin: “Congrats, you’ve got a disease that will help you live longer.”
        Funny thing is, we’ve been split up for nearly three years, but other than toast, I still eat almost no gluten. Life is better without it.

        1. The European Medal of Tolerance awarded for creative achievements in the promotion of tolerance.
          I assume one winner was Jean-Luc D’Almon the invented of Almond Milk who single handedly ended lactose intolerance

        2. I seem to remember he beat Annie F. Lactik-shack the woman behind Peanut therapy for allergy sufferers to second place

        3. ah, the invention Hillary developed a tolerance for in-between seizures. Only time she’s ever desperately wanted a big black guy jabbing at her nether regions

    2. Check out farro, an Italian grain. It’s heavier than quinoa and actually satiates, at least a little.

  2. There’s only one super food and it is LIVER, there’s only one super nutrient and it is called …. CHOLESTEROL. Cholesterol is the magic substance of the body. Low blood cholesterol levels are associated with suicide.
    The war on cholesterol was/is part of the war on men. Cholesterol is the precursor to ALL steroid hormones. Low dietary cholesterol equal low testosterone. Ever seen a manly vegan?
    Chicken liver or eggs and broccoli for the win!
    Larsen, this list of “super foods” is rather disappointing. Those are the kind of foods that usually get recommended by women nutritional typists.
    I would not recommend you eating too much fish or supplementing with fish oil. The need for PUFAs (polyunsaturated fatty acids) is incredibly small and both Omega-6 and Omega-3 can contribute to degenerative disease by increasing exposure to “oxidative stress.”
    I haven’t eaten fish for decades.

    1. You would not recommend eating too much fish or supplementing with fish oil…fuck, I have to go but an entire bluefin tuna and 200 cartons of fish oil tablets.

      1. There are charts showing murcury content of each type of fish…Tuna is pretty high and recommended only eat once per week.

        1. Tuna is high because it is a long living predator fish that eats other fish. I eat tuna only once in a while and when I do I eat blufin which is probably the most mercury but I don’t eat enough to cause a problem.
          The best fish are ones with a very short reproductive cycle and life. Less time to pick up mercury.

        2. I eat Salmon once a week and usually Swordfish once a week. They aren’t great if mercury is your main concern but I am so fucking healthy it is disgusting. Some things I just have to let slide. If I wind up in some hospital one day after 60 years of eating healthily and the doctor says I am dying due to my once weekly grilled salmon with lemon juice over spinach I will just laugh.

        3. Cooked salmon over spinach with beetroot and maybe a bit of Parmesan sprinkled on top for more flavour. Only add Parmesan if I reheat it in the microwave..

        4. I can’t reheat fish. It’s like a mental thing. I just get grossed out. Never tried beatroot. Will look into it. I prettt much just hit it on a rocket hot cast iron grill pan for about 2 minutes per side and then squeeze some lemon on top. It’s as simple as could be.

        5. The best way to consume is freshly baked but I cannot cook whilst at the office!lol Also, the only time I reheat is when the fish is split into tiny bits and mixed in with the spinach.

        6. Less than tuna. More than sardines. I wouldn’t worry too much about it.

    2. I think the reason to use these “superfoods”, in particular, is to counter the narrative put out largely, as you said, by women “nutrition nuts”. The second the nutrition trenders push one of these products, sales go through the roof and nobody does their homework to see whether it makes sense.
      As women tend to have the highest exposure to these trenders, they tend to do the spreading. But I’ve met more than my share of vegan “men” (inherently low-T and sickly) who got their nonsense straight from Dr. Oz.
      Look into the actual research every now and then, and you’ll be amazed at what you discover (my favorite – eggs and butter with low-to-moderate carb intake can actually allow your body to heal cavities, according to Dr. Weston Price’s research in the early 1900’s).

      1. Ironically, liver is one of the cheapest foods one can buy, because the idiots don’t buy it.
        My wife makes the most delicious chicken liver pate in the world. I can survive and thrive just eating that and few veggies.

        1. Youre right, but where can you find organic liver in a supermarket? I dont want to eat an animal’s filter organ when its been filtering nothing but growth hormone, antibiotics, etc

        2. It IS true that liver is a “detox” organ. But it’s NOT true that liver is where the toxins are stored.

        3. I could never make myself like the taste of liver. Maybe one day I will find a recipe that doesn’t ultimately end up in the trash, but it hasn’t happened yet.

        4. Liver is one of those foods that stays with you…I tend to not get hungry again for a long time after a serving. Salmon does the same thing for me.

        5. Apparently soaking the strips of liver in whole milk (up to 4 hours) prior to cooking overcomes the taste problem. Haven’t tried it myself so I can’t verify that personally.

      1. Doesn’t read article
        Claims article is flawed and how it could have been better

        1. Not sure about that, done right, it works well. I met a couple of vegans doing my AT thru hike that were doing 30 miles a day. I personally eat whatever I want, and like meat too much to do the vegan thing.

  3. As an alternative, look into the real superfoods out there. In particular, liver and eggs.
    Liver and other organ meats contain more vitamins and minerals than muscle meats while retaining the healthy fats and protein. And, when you think about it, an egg has all the ingredients required to manufacture a chicken, and on an ingredient basis we’re not that different from chickens.
    I observe that when my diet has enough eggs (~3/day) and only moderate carb intake, I maintain my body’s desired weight (used to be 165, now closer to 175) and get sick less. I take that to mean that I have the nutrients required to maintain my body and its internal defenses.

    1. Yep. Eggs and offal are nutritional powerhouses. Combine that with regular consumption of cruciferous vegetables and leafy greens and you’re as damn close to superman as you’re gonna get.

    2. To those living in Australia and New Zealand, I would recommend against eating livers and kidneys. Please watch the video “The Dangers of Cadmium” on youtube. Basically, they knowingly have been spraying superphosphate (a manmade fertilizer) containing large amount of cadmium so much that the soil is seriously contaminated with cadmium. The cadmium has spread across the entire area/continent, and the livers and kidneys are banned by other countries because they contain too much cadmium.

    3. I’ve gotten really into liver lately. I harvested a nice size one from a caribou and am going to make scrapple (a Pennsylvania Dutch breakfast pate mixed w cornmeal) with it and the heart.

    4. I am about to raise some chickens, lacing their feed with 29% or so of Kratom.
      First, after a few months of that, I shall test the eggs by making an omlette and eating it.
      Then after about 12 more months or so, I’ll slaughter them and eat the livers.

      1. I worry the chickens will be able to overpower you.
        Heck, with Kratom, perhaps even the eggs could.
        Make sure you double-dose before you go in.

  4. Anyone know any really good VPN providers that are cheap and have uncapped usage?

  5. Fish oil is good for muscle recovery-assuming you go in very high doses. Its cheap so nothing wrong to add it as a supplement for recovery. Otherwise, not sure why you would take it. Taurine; is average to poor for anything . I would say the same for BCAA’s and HMB as well. I think they are a serious waste of money and really don’t do much for workout recovery. If you can’t go everyday and need 3 days off; whats the point of recovery drinks?. Your just drinking money only to wait to recover so you can workout again. WTF…………Also, in my opinion,any type of grain product or red meat will get you fat/ tremendous weight gain. I think its GMO and steroids in the meat. I am not sure the human animal can digest this nasty -but good tasting- stuff.

    1. I notice a marked difference in my workouts when I use BCAA intra-workout versus when I do not.
      You are right about the meat which is why it is worth it to pony up the few extra bucks a pound and get organic, local farm, non gmo etc meat. Red meat is something all men should be eating. It’s a shame that greed and stupidity has poisoned it but you can still buy the good stuff

      1. Workouts but not sure about recovery. caffeine pre workout will get you same affect. BCAA’s seem to work good on long runs/bike rides but fast carbs – fruits do just as well intra workout. My focus is recovery and maximum effect is 30 minutes post. After that, nothing seems to help.

        1. Yes on the fast carbs. When I am not cutting I use glycofuse. But right now I am in ketosis, I think it kicked in today actually because my mental acuity is back, as I am doing a cut for my end of march beginning of april vacation so the BCAA seems to help. I still use DMAA pre workout along with caffeine and all the other stuff in my pre. Nothing helps my focus and hold my CNS together like DMAA.

        2. I am going to try the glycofuse as an additive to my post recovery drink…. DMAA seems good as well; but I don’t have extreme energy issues…T supplement helps.. Just getting older and the next days being a bitch . I also take advanced whey protein with some other things right after the workout that seem to be helping

        3. Yeah I use advanced. I dropped the glycofuse along with all other carbs when I started my cut but I find it works well. I like it intra rather than post but ymmv. The DMAA is good for energy but that isn’t why I use it. It does wonders for my mental state. Really helps me connect my thinking with each lift for prolonged periods of time. My problem comes when I am 45 minutes in and my mind starts to wander and I’m just not connected to the work out anymore. The DMAA totally resolves that issue

        4. I just started to add fulvic mineral supplement in post recovery drink..It seems to give you some post workout relief but too early to tell.

        5. 45 minutes?- I dont even get warmed up in 45.-lol….but.it really depends on how many areas you cover. Each muscle group has to have a target number of optimal reps. I prefer full body workouts as you don’t get mentally burned out from lifting every day and cardio can be fit in on off days.

        6. I’m always done in 45, either upper or lower body. But then again, I view weight lifting as one aspect of good health, not as the end-all be-all of life.
          Another problem is that it doesn’t translate well to athleticism. Leg press, for example, gets the thighs swoled up, but that doesn’t help with running or soccer. Only running and soccer can help with running and soccer, lol.

        7. Maybe you don’t. I’m not there as a casual thing. I lift for 2 hours every day and do an hour of cardio

        8. If you do 45 then your still 4 days a week plus cardio. If you only lift once per week per muscle group; your probably wasting your time as its too much time between…. 4 days plus cardio would be end-all be all in my mind. I did that in my 20’s. when I was really into it -2 hrs a day 5 days.. …..for now, I lift 2 days and 3-4 days cardio. Run, bike etc… I don’t expect anything from it.

        9. Trainer tells me 72 hrs rest per muscle group. So I do two days a week upper body, one day a week lower body, and lots of other exercise like sprints, soccer, swimming, yoga, etc.

        10. I have started doing strange mix up. For instance I don’t have a legs day any more. I have hams, calves and Biceps day and quad and abs day. Back to back. Also, I now have a chest and tricep day. Really want to isolate your chest on your different presses? Totally blow out your triceps first so you can’t compensate and have to totally isolate chest

        11. your at it on another level than I am- but what your doing will work as long as you can recover enough and handle the mental aspect. Showing up to the gym don’t mean diddly if you can’t have strong workouts………… I am older so different goals. I want lean machine ..where you probably want size. I do more 20 set reps than 4-6 with xtra weight. As long as you get to exhaustion; it works.

        12. where did the trainer get 72 hours? LoL. I hope he/she has the goods to back it up. Some of the certified trainers know less than nothing when it comes to recovery, supplements, and becoming a gorilla. Back in 80’s when roids were big; there was some guys that went in at 110 lbs and came out 310.

        13. I am pretty fucking old 🙂 you may not be as much older as you think. I am currently off my bulk and shredding down now for a beach body. I am 6 foot 2 weeks ago was up near 215 from bulking and really growing. I’m down at 206 now and will get myself to 190 by march which is pretty lean for me seeing as I carry a lot of muscle.
          Right now my workouts are aimed at shreds so it is generally 6 giant sets with 3 workouts per set with 5 sets and, depending on lift, 15-20 reps. I also do an hour of intervals on the stairs.
          Agreed that total muscle exhaustion is the goal. Normally at this time of year I would be eating a lot of carbs and lifting heavy but I’ll be on vacation on a beach in 2 months so I want the striations and leanness so I’m doing my current workout and running a keto diet

        14. I was a fat fucker at 240 in july and now down just below 208. Also trying to get below 200. A lot of reps there so you should be able to get there. I try to target 140-150 reps per group……. As far as age; my buddies are having heart attacks and on disability so I probably have you there.

        15. Lol you probably do. I have always been a skinny guy so my problem in my 20’s was putting weight on. Then in my 30’s it evened out. Now in my 40’s if I want to get shredded I have to go pretty hard at it. I have been powerlifting and body building for a really long time. I am far from an expert but I have a good sense of how to manipulate my own body and can usually help novices. I really think it is the fountain of youth.

        16. you’re in the gym for 3 hours everyday? you must have a very open schedule
          2 hours lifting seems very excessive and casual. what could you possibly be doing in all that time?

        17. I am on my way now. 530-730
          I do 6 theee movement giant sets. Later I will do 1 hour on the stairs after work. My schedule is the opposite of open, just very, very planned out.
          A 45 minute gym session is fine for general health but I have much more lofty goals.
          If I could I would spend 5 hours a day

  6. Omega 3 fish oil pills gave me massive headaches daily, am I doing something wrong?

    1. Seems like I take a fistfull of pills daily (multivitamin, D, E, turmeric, little bit of dhea, glucosamine), and it does precisely *dick.*
      Caffeine, on the other hand… works wonders.

      1. Yeah I took Vitamin B6 twice a day for 6 months and felt nothing.
        I remember taking Caffeine while studying for exams in High School, completely ruined my sleep schedule for a month.

        1. Try B-12. Huge doses make me feel all energized without the negatives of large caffeine doses

        2. I bought some B12, 30 count of 3000mcg. I really didn’t feel any difference at all.

        3. Really? Would need to ask someone who knows the science better. B12 makes me feel great

        4. I use this one
          If I am getting a lot from B-12 and you are not, however, it might just be the case that I am low in B-12 and that the supplement is helping me while you aren’t. I honestly don’t know enough about it.
          Also, as for long workouts. This morning was a doosy. I did 6 Giant Sets of three 5 sets each. So basically it is three workouts done one after the next with no rest to complete 1 giant set. then a 45 second rest and do it again until completing 5 Giant Sets. As reps go down weight goes up to induce failure. They went like this:
          Giant Set One 5 Sets
          Incline Dumbbell Press 20,18,16,14,12
          Standing DB Tricep Extension 20,18,16,14,12
          Weighted Decline Situps 20,20,20,20,20
          Giant Set 2 5 Sets
          Decline Dumbbell Presses (reverse grip) 20,18,16,14,12
          Standing DB Triceps Extension 20,18,16,14,12
          Weighted Incline Situps 20,20,20,20
          Giant Set 3 5 Sets
          Barbell Bench Press 20,18,16,14,12
          Seated Triceps Extension 20,18,14,12
          1 Minute Plank
          Giant Set 4 5 Sets
          Flat Bench DB Flyes 20,18,16,14,12
          DB Triceps Kickback 15,15,15,15,15 (each side
          Kettle Bell Russian Twists 20,20,20,20,20
          Giant Set 5 5 Sets
          Incline DB Fly 20,18,16,14,12
          Skull Crushers 20,18,16,14,12
          Hanging Leg Raise 15,15,15,15,15
          Giant Set 6 5 Sets
          Cable Cross 20,18,16,14,12
          Tricep Cable Pushdown 20,18,16,14,12
          DB Woodchoppers 15,15,15,15,15
          This was my weight routine this morning. Tonight I will go back and do 1 hour of interval sprints on the stairmaster.
          I do not recommend this for everyone and do not think that this extreme level is necessary. But this is my passion.

        5. For your incline dumbell press, what weights are you using? Why the very high rep range? Would it not be more beneficial and efficient to cut out the 20 and 18 rep-sets, and start with a higher weight to do your 16 and 14 rep sets?

        6. the 20 rep I start with 40 lbs dumbbells. I like to start with a 20 rep count. It is something I picked up from the encyclopedia of body building to get the muscles primed and I find that doing it with a light weight really “wakes up” those muscles. Also, this is strictly for cutting cycles. If I was looking for growth my rep ranges would be under 10. So for incline this morning I went
          40, 50, 60, 65, 70 with the weights. I have played around with different types of sets and different rep counts for more years than I care to admit…this is what I find works for me when I want to cut and really pull out the definition.

      2. Oh man, i take an animal pack every day. It’s like a freaking meal

        1. I considered trying their Flex pack for my torqued out back joints– but the thought of swallowing so many strange things made me feel a little dirty.

        2. Yeah it’s odd at first. The plain animal pack is chock full of vitamins and is also a good gauge of water consumption because piss won’t run clear until after you pass the gallon mark

      3. You’re wasting your turmeric if you don’t consume it along with piperine. You can’t absorb it by itself.

        1. I like Jim Stoppani’s Omega JYm pills. Always look at the ingredients. Loads of places to get fish oil

  7. Try 5 bowls of fiber cereal to clog the locker room toilet and establish your gym dominance.

  8. It’s questionable whether any grains are good for you, since humanity has only been eating them for a few thousand years. If you’re lucky, you will tolerate them…

  9. Just a note with regards to the kratom — err, I mean the quinoa…
    I’d also heard the rumor that the increased cultivation & export has hurt the Andean farmers that grow the stuff. It’s a believable thought. But I looked into it last year, and it doesn’t seem to be the case. The study I saw seemed to indicate that quinoa just as readily available now to everyone in Peru as it always has been, but the farmers may eat less bc they now have the cash to afford more expensive foods, and rely less on quinoa as a staple.
    There could be a couple potential problems with the continued popularity, though. Commercial farmers only grow a tiny handful of the literally thousands of traditional varieties, so biodiversity will sooner or later suffer. Also, call them crazy, but the farmers seem to enjoy making money off the stuff…So they often opt to overfarm land that probably ought to lie fallow. This can cause long term nutrient problems with the soil, if not properly managed.
    At any rate I do agree, we should all be trying out all the ancient grains we can. Sorghum, spelt, millet, buckwheat, barley, you name it. I’ve always felt like the diet is one place diversity is almost always a plus — but then again I’ve gotten fat and old so what the fuck do I know.
    Citation follows if you want to check my work. There’s probably more out there on the intetnets somewhere.

  10. I used to be very keen on nutrition, especially so called super foods but now I’m starting to be very sceptical about it all. The marketing is great but finding good quality scientific evidence behind them is difficult.

  11. Different foods for different societies. The research for the optimal is a work in progress.

    1. Different things are optimal for different people. If you are bedridden because you are over 500 pounds, protein shakes will only give you gas. It even changes with a person over time.
      That is why the holy grail of the optimum diet will never be found.

      1. Yep, but I guess nature has a rare way with some things that do apply to most and some things that do not.

  12. You bought a Range Rover with money earned making porn movies ???Woww Sharon you must have an arse making gold easy??

  13. “…the West has led to it increasing in price in its home region of the Andean plateau.”
    That is great news…this means less coca plantations for junkies

  14. The thing with quinoa is that it makes you feel full in your stomach so it is good for long training sessions. I put it in my preworkout smoothie and it packs a bigger punch than the same amount of oats. This also means you have to wait longer to do excercise after you eat it so you dont end up throwing up. It is costlier and harder to find though.

  15. This article is a waste of space,citing zero evidence of any kind, be it personal experience, studies, etc. Goji Berries are fabled to be part of a long life formula from people who have been looking for long life for eons. Should you trust the sales advice of a top notch salesman? Yes. Should you take the word of someone who spewed words on a page who cites no evidence whatsoever? No.

  16. Take all these articles on nutrition with a grain of sea salt. There are too many control factors to take into account to get reproducible results. A recent study of health studies found that only 6 out of 56 could be reproduced. One scientist in the UK who studies nutritional studies has determined that we only know to things about the impact of diet on health:
    1. Don’t eat too much and
    2. Don’t eat only one thing.
    All you have to do is look at the advice of centurions to see how widely varied are their diets although all claim their diets were key to their long lives.

  17. Totally agree on goji berries. Super expensive and you might as well just eat dried cranberries or dried cherries.
    SWPLs seem hell-bent on spending all their extra cash on conspicuous consumption products (like trendy fad diets) rather than building up their savings or having kids but fewer “cool” things.
