Lost faith in "healthy foods"

I've tried to do research on the roles of saturated fats, phytochemicals, anti-oxidants, fiber, and so on.
And the more I read, the more the entire nutristionist perspective seems like junk science.

Like, I'm supposed to believe that eating fiber is going to lower my chance at getting heart disease for some reason, despite constantly making me constipated?
And that vegetables "may" have 10,000 different phytochemicals that will prevent me from developing cancer?
And that if I eat a whole bunch of saturated fats now, that I'll clog my arteries in 60 years?

It's all so tiresome.

    It really is. My mother used to do nutrition research. "No don't eat butter, Anon, that will kill you! You have to eat margarine instead!" Ten years later: "No, don't eat margarine, Anon, that will kill you!" "Eat pasta, anon! The Italians do it and they're healthy!" Develop diabetes. "No Anon, you can't eat meat, that will kill you! Just eat more carbohydrates! What do you mean, diabetes?! Oh my god how could this possibly happen to you?!?! Just inject insulin until your feet fall off and you go blind!"

      if you wat a low fat diet with lots of carbs your insulin sensitivity will be high and you will not develop diabetes.

    You're overcomplicating things. First you have the start with the official BARE MINIMUM: Carnivore diet. Humans have only recently invented things like rice/beans/vegetables/fruit/ect. Before that we've primarily survived on animal meats/fats. There's literally 0 need for things like carbs/fiber in a human diet. Use that as a baseline.

    Ask yourself this: Why don't people on the carnivore diet get scurvy?

      >Humans have only recently invented things like...fruit
      Nah, pre-agriculture humans often ate fruit. But you're right that meat and animal fat provided the bulk of calories. However, there have been genetic changes in humans since we began farming to adapt more to starchy foods.

      >Why don't people on the carnivore diet get scurvy?
      You will if you eat all of your meat well cooked. I tried carnivore for a while due to autoimmune issues and started to get sore gums and flaky skin after a couple months because I ate everything well done.

        No, according to what some research have found, it provided a minority of calories even for them. Entire carnivore diet is based on unfounded historical speculation.

        >Hayden (3) stated that hunter-gatherers such as the !Kung might live in conditions close to the “ideal” hunting and gathering environment. What do the !Kung eat? Animal foods are estimated to contribute 33% and plant foods 67% of their daily energy intakes (1). Fifty percent (by wt) of their plant-based diet comes from the mongongo nut, which is available throughout the year in massive quantities (1). Similarly, the hunter-gatherer Hazda of Tanzania consume “the bulk of their diet” as wild plants, although they live in an area with an exceptional abundance of game animals and refer to themselves as hunters
        >Australian aborigines in some locales are known to have relied seasonally on seeds of native millet (2) or a few wild fruit and seed species (20) to satisfy daily energy demands. Some hunter-gatherer societies in Papua New Guinea relied heavily on starch from wild sago palms as an important source of energy (21), whereas most hunter-gatherer societies in California depended heavily on acorn foods from wild oaks (22).

        >Although agriculture is relatively recent, most hunter-gatherer societies appear to have enthusiastically embraced it. For example, since well before the time of Columbus, tropical rain forests of South America have been inhabited not by hunter-gatherers but by hunter-gatherer-agriculturalists, small societies practicing shifting cultivation whose main crop was likely a single starchy carbohydrate. Contemporary ethnographers working in Amazonia noted that even when smoke racks are filled with game, if the carbohydrate staple becomes exhausted, the inhabitants say they have no food.

          Interesting. Although your article does say that some do get most of their calories from meat and fat. And I suppose it depends on where you lived. In colder climates you're not getting enough calories from plants. But I've also read that they fall back on plant foods when their hunts are unsuccessful and it's not their preferred food.

          Exercise has close 0 benefits for longevity.

          I think it's genuinely possible that smarter species of humans evolved when they started becoming hunter warriors. Wild animals SURE do have this strange instinctual urge to run away when they see a physically fit human approach them even though 90% of us don't chuck spears anymore and thus pose very little danger to them (except for our cheating boom sticks of course).

          Here's my reasoning: people who don't exercise (ie couch potatoes) have significantly lower intelligence than a modern day hunter warriors (military veterans) even if both come from the same race (black,white,asian,latino,orange,whatever) but at the same time the latter tends to eat LESS calories. AFAIK plants are a poor source of protein for the brain because they contain less amino acids and less vitamin B12 so you basically have to eat 1 kilogram of peanut butter to get the same benefit as 400 grams of steak. BUT THERE'S A HUGE PROBLEM

          100g protein steak (400 gram actual weight) = ~1,000 calories

          200g protein peanut butter (1KG actual weight) = ~5,500 calories

          Finally I'd like to add that it's great that we don't have to run 10 miles a day chucking spears anymore, that all seems very exhausting. Is that actually a good thing long-term though? It's seems the less spear chucking and running that we have to do the dumber we get...

    >despite constantly making me constipated?
    What are you eating that's making you constipated? People often repeat that fiber helps you poop, but it's the opposite for me if it's in dry food. Like dry fruits, whole grain crackers, peanut butter, those foods all have fiber but constipate me because they're dried out. Just drinking water isn't enough to rehydrate them in your system. But I never experience that with fresh fruits and vegetables or whole grain porridge or pasta.

    Sometimes I've wondered if the recommendations to eat more vegetables is just because they're low in calories and people want to keep stuffing themselves. So you have to do that with low calorie food to not gain too much weight. I like vegetables and sometimes really crave them in large amounts, but other times I just don't really want any at all and don't feel significantly worse for the periods where I'm not really eating as much.

      That's the main idea. Fruits and vegetables won't make you thinner, but the hope is that their water content and fiber will satiate you one way or another, usually by keeping your digestive tract busy.

    It comes down to how does a food help you maintain your body’s homeostasis, especially through apoptosis, or the controlled/programmed healthy death and rebirth of a cell.
    Google search through academic journals regarding foods that promote apoptosis and scroll down to conclusion/results of you want to research yourself.
    One of my favorites is Mangosteen, which has a compound known as xanthones. It promotes healthy cell growth and death, while inhibiting abnormal(cancer) cells.
    Raw garlic can help promote apoptosis, but it’s a specific compound that’s only in raw garlic

      Yup, obesity is becoming a world-wide problem all over the world. The human body is coping very poorly with incomplete proteins. In order to switch to plant protein without becoming fat fricks we literally have no choice but to genetically engineer some kind of Frankenstein plant with the same amino acid composition of meat at this point. Surely nothing can go wrong when humans start playing god and messing with the delicate ecological balance imposed by nature.

        We haven't domesticated squirrels for human consumption... YET. They're still too lean, we have to turn them into couch potatoes first which usually takes thousands of cycles of careful selective breeding. Not like there's any monetary incentive to do so when we have chickens which produce eggs that literally outperform the birds themselves nutrition-wise so we don't even need to slaughter them anymore but "le cholesterol is le BAD! Eat refined grains instead!" advocates prevent that from happening. That said it's very sad that we put them in cages, that should definitely be banned.

    I find it VERY interesting that we as humans can survive on a dozen chicken eggs per day from pasture raised chickens (very high in omeg-3 and vitamin D) + lemon for vitamin C probably for weeks without any ill effects but longer than a month could lead to developing an egg allergy though. Makes you question if we really need all these new man-made food sources. 1 week on this kind of diet can make you lose 10-20 pounds of body fat btw (depending how much you exercise) which is also mind boggling. I LITERALLY mean absolutely nothing but 12 hard boiled pastured eggs + 1 lemon each day (and water OFC).

        The point is there isn't any legitimate dietary requirement for 99% of fruits/vegetables/legumes. Obesity rate of the Inuit has gone up in the past few decades because of the adoption of western diets. Before that they ate virtually 0 fruits/vegetables/legumes.

        More interestingly they're also now getting exponentially higher rates of tooth decay.

        A fruit diet makes you deficient in almost every vitamin, while a raw meat diet necessarily gurantees that you get everything you need for your body, because the flesh you are consuming literally needs the same stuff that you do.

        >"Inuit dental care has been a subject of some interest for a while. It seems that the Inuit do not brush their teeth at all, and oral hygiene is delegated to a handful of water used to rinse after meals."

        Our bodies make use of shit we eat in whatever way it can. We need to eat salt, a rock lol. So eating things with a larger number of compounds in them is more likely to have shit in it that our body can use.

            Haha, that other fricking dumbass thinks salt is a rock or a chemical.
            Chemicals are poisons like mustard gas or saturated fats. And a rock is like, made out of shit and stuff that isn't food, so salt can't be a rock.

    Just a handful of the mountains of compounds unique to plants with well-established, potentially massive benefits for human health. Cardiovascular health, liver and kidney health, microbiome, anti-aging, anti-cancer, brain function, look up any of these on pubmed and spend some time with the articles and it's the same story again and again. I'm not here to promote veganism (that comes with its own problems) but if you deprive yourself of all this stuff in today's world you're shooting yourself in the foot, not to mention what a big baby you look like when you say you don't eat plants.

      Yeah, tested in a lab in a petri dish. Very different in reality once it enters a real human body. The "anti-nutrients" outweigh any "benefit". Also all the pesticides and shit sprayed on them. And fiber is indigestible garbage. Plant foods are useless and inferior to animal foods.

        You have to wash your vegetables and fruits before eating them. Or at least you should.
        Antinutrients are a meme and a distraction that israelites use to prevent goyim from eating nutritious foods

    I just eat everything, I consume the living and the dead. Mankind has been arguing about what the ideal nutrition is for so long and nobody seems to have any clue after thousands of years.

    When you eat food that contains fat, your gallbladder releases bile into the small intestine. Normally the bile will be reabsorbed later in the digestive process and reused. But if you eat soluble fiber, it becomes a gel matrix in your intestines which traps bile and causes you to shit it out. This forces the liver to produce more bile. Bile is made of LDL cholesterol so this lowers your serum cholesterol. Cholesterol in the blood is what clumps up to cause heart disease. So that's why eating fiber reduces your risk of heart disease.

    Fiber makes you constipated if you don't eat it regularly because the breakout of species of bacteria in your gut isn't optimal for digesting a high fiber diet. There are different species of bacteria that do different things and they'll live and die based on what you eat. Any abrupt deviation from your normal diet will produce negative effects. If you want to adapt for a high fiber diet you should eat it regularly every day for 2 weeks while taking a good probiotic supplement or homemade fermented foods.

    Vegetables "may" do anything because every phytochemical may have different effects and this statement is vague enough to be true about anything..

    Saturated fat goes in your blood and forms sticky clumps and it takes a long time to build up enough to form a clump big enough to fully clog an artery.

    I don't feel like any of these concepts are particularly hard to understand, nor hard to believe, nor are any of them contradictory to each other. So what exactly is the problem?

      You give a very simple explanation for bodily functions, which are always anything but.

    >Like, I'm supposed to believe that eating fiber is going to lower my chance at getting heart disease for some reason, despite constantly making me constipated?

    When you eat fat, your body produces bile to emulsify it so it can be absorbed in the intestine. Bile is caustic stuff and a main contributor to cancer. That is why a low fat diet is so healthy. Bile is also full of cholesterol.

    The body re-absorbes the bile, and the cholesterol, in the intestines.

    Fiber disrupts the reabsorption of cholesterol. That is why eating fiber lowers your cholesterol.

    Eating fiber is essential if you want to stay healthy.
