Diet gurus must address the protein, fat, and carbohydrate content of foods. If they cannot answer that then they do not know what they are talking about. There is a large amount of biochemical and epidemiological research on the optimal ratio. Over the last million years hominids have averaged to 1/3 on each of protein, fat, and carbohydrate. This approximates most traditional diets as well.
Within the protein category there are dozens of amino acids. There are also dozens of kinds of fats carbohydrates, and fibers. There is much research as to what these do and how much is needed for what purpose.
I have noticed that supermarket isles are filled with brightly colored boxes of carbohydrates glued together by vegetable oils, but little protein. This is also reflected in junk food establishment menus. Burger king hamburgers are more balanced, but when you throw in a shake or coke with french fries they are protein deficient. Most junk food is fiber deficient. Excellent site below detailing junk food nutrition.
Junk food stamp liberals eat too many calories and not enough protein or fiber. Food stamps give them freedom to buy within certain constraints (WIC women infant children is on some labels). What is worse is that liberals eat very bad forms of calories such as hydrogenated vegetable oils with bad omega balance, high fructose corn syrup, sugars,… And it is mostly genetically modified GMO frankenfood. I am surprised they are not sicker and stupider than they already are.
I have looked at the Michael Eades protein power blog. He cites numerous good studies. There are lots of facts there and elsewhere online for those willing to study. But a good understanding would take more than a college degree in molecular and cellular biology. Takes a bachelors to be able to read the literature and another 10 years to read it.
Traditional diets are in general better — they were developed over long periods of time. I tend to migrate toward ethnic cusines more than the modern multicultural junk foods. I suspect most liberals would be better off poor working hard on the family farm than living on drugs and welfare in big fancy houses driving big fancy cars in the big cities without any garden, cow, or source of quality food. May be time to ship them back to where they came from so they can grow it themselves. Would do wonders for government budgets not to have to pay them to eat themselves sick and then to pay doctors to try to fix them or exterminate them.
