Because I eat almost entirely single ingredient foods I didn't have much problem with the food survey. One thing was very telling however. In the list of oils and fats you might eat they left out coconut oil. I use only coconut oil or olive oil. It shows where their heads are at or at least where they are not at. I don't expect much from this study. It just felt too all over the place and how reliable and valid is the data they are collecting this way? For example, they ask for amount estimates of food in cups while I use ounces for everything. Maybe they'll generate a hypothesis or two that might be worth looking into but I'm skeptical of the whole endeavor.
