"I need to loose weight."

I see this one on these forums a lot. Can we please try harder people? You need to lose weight, and then you will have loose clothing.

It's saddening to see how bad people are at spelling the simple stuff.

And for what it's worth, I'll amend my previous post:

"I only eat organic."

What they are really saying: "I have too much disposable income, and I would rather blow my money on questionably healthy stuff that mocks proven, sustainable, high-yield farming methods."

"Lite."

What they are really saying: We've taken out all the natural fatty good stuff and replaced it with corn syrup and corn starch, in order to fool you into thinking you'll lose weight by choosing this product. And we're probably going to charge you more for it too. And we'll just make up words as we go along.

"It's the carbs."

As in it's only the carbs. Does a high fat diet make a line of rats fat? Did it have sugar, what what was the carbohydrate content, valid questions. But a combination of high fat and high sugar can be fattening, even when high sugar or high fat in and of themselves, are not. Even if sugar/carbohydrate were necessary conditions for fattening, that wouldn't mean that high fat didn't contribute once those conditions were met.

Of course this is the problem with the gold standard of changing only one variable, it may make it clear that that variable is making the difference, but the result is very specific to the control. There is no "control and intervention" just two interventions with a single variable.

"Eat healthy" or "Eat a healthy diet."

This advice is meaningless and no one agrees on what "healthy" is.

"Toxins."

If you can't tell me specifically what the toxins are, and what they do, then shut up.

"We need to eat more sugar because carbon dioxide."

Also, anything that suggests that Ray Peat is an authority on what humans should eat.

"Everything in moderation." (Repeat)

What they are really saying: "I have nothing intelligent to contribute to the conversation."

Whenever somebody says, "Everything in moderation," my eyes roll into the back of my skull, I just can't help it.

"Gut bugs outnumber host cells in the human body."

1) I'm not sure it's true.
2)What makes it relevant?

Also "The gut is the second brain." Evolution-wise, which came first, the gut or the brain? Maybe there's relevance to brain health for the gut, calling it a second brain doesn't seem to add anything useful to the conversation.

Also--I was listening to a podcast the other day, and the keto folk on it were talking about parallels between doing a keto diet and knocking out gut bugs with antibiotics. Yeah, not a thing. It will certainly change your gut bug profile. But keto dieters do have gut bugs.

Also--the assumption that if we do have gut bugs, they'll suck, and chew up our innards, is unwarranted. We do have gut bugs, if our intestinal health improves with fiber removed from our diets, it may be from a change in our microbiome, it won't be due to lack of gut bugs.

Sometimes I see zero or low carbers down-talking the role of gut bugs in human health. This seems like an unnecessary defense until somebody shows that the accusation that zero or low carb worsens the gut bug profile is actually true. I think we should at least wait until somebody's made a criticism that has legs before we get all defensive.
