moogiemynes's Journal, 20 June 2018

I have 92 unread notifications. Well, at least it's not over a hundred. I may not get to reading them all, so I'll pray for you. I left when I saw some disagreements, (i.e. war), brewing around a couple of the people I was following. Also, my children had arrived from out of town, so if I posted at all, it concerned only the food diary. Yep, I was doing good to simply record what I ate.

The social aspect of this site attracts me, but the main reason I come here is to keep track of my food. At Sunday dinner, my diabetic brother-in-law smugly reminded me of his medical degree when I responded to his lecture on the necessity of fructose in my diet. Instead of trying to recall the exact wording of the 20+ medical studies I have read in the last ten months or the uncounted educational videos I've watched, I told him that I'd send him some links.

I sent him this: and suggested that he read ALL of the supporting documents and watch all of the supporting videos as I have. Seriously, it took me months to sift through all of the documentation, but I have done it! I have new purpose, and expect to do better with compliance. There's nothing like a family argument to cement one's position.

Welcome back Moogie. Good for him and his degree. He can stay in his own lane. As for doing better with compliance Moogie, I prepared my lunch and planned my dinner so I too can be more compliant with eating in a way to get my body to release the fat. Much success with your new purpose!

Well, as a former health care professional I can tell you that most medical schools cover nutrition only on a very superficial level if at all. Sounds like this guy just wanted to feel superior. Just my two cents, lol!

How necessary is fructose to anyone? I didn't know it was necessary. I dno't think that reading studies really gets to the truth of things. You have to be able to assess the quality of the study in order to really appreciate whether its conclusions are any good or not so i leave that up to the peer reviewing mob.

I agree with Tarreymere, I have also been led to beleive that doctors are far from expert in nutrition but frankly i think almost no one really knows much for sure. What we know for sure are some basics and on teh finer points, the jury is really all out. Nutrition science is really hard to do and to get right because we can't do enough experiments on human bodies.

Thanks for the link. It is now on my "to read/study" list.

This is so true. In my lifetime I have seen every single diet and way of eating villinized, or at least been shown to be ineffective long term. I just try to keep up on what the latest research is showing. My focus is not weight loss, but my general health. I find the whole subject of diet, nutrition and WOE fascinating. I find there are take home messages from many of them and try to incorporate some of those findings in my own life.
