How do you cope with how overwhelming food is?

How do you cope with how overwhelming food is? Eating is the most important thing we do as humans yet there are so many foods that do so many different things, and the worst part? There aren't even consensuses on what they all do.

Fiber? Completely changes your digestive system. You eat fiber and it will digest very slowly throughout your body. Is this a bad thing? Many people stress how important it is, and you have many people saying the opposite. One thing is for sure though, it DOES have an impact. And fiber is just one thing. Red meat? Grains? Dairy? Low carb diets? High carb diets? Low protein diets? High protein diets? Everything is like this! We don't have consensuses on anything yet it all impacts our body TREMENDOUSLY! And the scariest part is that most people don't even track this! They could possibly even eat a little bit of everything throughout the day one day, then the next day only eat grains for example, then the day after that only eat protein, and they expect to feel the same every day, but this is not possible when foods do so many different thing!

So I will end by asking again, how do you cope with how impactful food is whilst its impacts have such a lack of consensus?

      What about fat, the most important macro? Minerals? Vitamins? Fiber? Red meat? Fish?

      I'm currently doing my doctorate in an unrelated to IST field and the main concensus in research is that it's all bullshit. One study can find a correlation between cancer and a certain syndrome while the following study says there is a reverse correlation. Knowing how fickle research is doesn't mean you throw it all in the trash but go out and actually read the studies people post. Remember the onion test boost memes? Did anyone actually read anything about it?

      When you realise how useless most of the studies out there are you stop obsessing about how many muscle fibres are activation with how many degrees of pronation on a certain style of row. You stop worrying about the latest article saying eggs no longer kill you like they did last week. You learn to just do what works for you. Eat in a way you enjoy but doesn't harm you. It's amazing how many people can't do this. It's not rocket science. Don't go full keto and pour butter into your coffee. Don't go full vegan and think you can get everything from lentils.

      Don't over complicate shit. Your body isn't MyFitnessPal that resets at midnight so if you didn't have any fibre today but had it last night and will have it tomorrow it goes into shut down mode. Your body is better than you give it credit for. When it doesn't perform like you want it to just use common sense; did you sleep enough? Eat enough? Have you been training non stop for 4weeks?

      I understand this... moderation of everything might be the answer. But that in of itself is a new stress; ensuring you actually eat EVERYTHING.

      Fiber is mostly indigestible. Not gonna keep reading your nonsense if you don't even know that

      And what would that do to your digestive system? moron.

      Oh, no!!! Thank god truth is not decided in a popularity contest and I'm intelligent and knowledgeable enough to properly contrast the opinions of experts to form my own conclusions. All this seemingly contradictory information is simply veiled as that and if you have the information and the capacity to understand and critically look at it, you know I'm right.

      If you trust the Truth Towers, not too long ago, you would have used mercury to treat disease.

      So what's the answer?

      >needing to know

      You don't need to know all the little minutia of what different chemicals do. Eat food. If some take something away and feel better leave it out. If you add something and it makes you better leave it in.
      >what if I'm missing out on the uv protective benefits of lycopene on my DNA
      Stop thinking about things. Get money. Get fit. Get a waifu. Get land.

      Your equation has way too many possibilities to test to be credible.

      The closer you eat to normal the better you will feel and the healthier you will be. Not the new normal, what has been eaten for thousands of years. High fiber grains. Meats with organ meats. A variety of garden vegetables. Stuff without preservatives. Fruits and berries. White flour, pure sugars, and only lean cuts of muscle meats are really not natural and should be avoided.

      Then the question comes, how much of each and how often? Fibrous vegetables may bloat you and ruin your whole day. How much fat do we eat? White flour is in whole grains remember that.

        Buddy you have autism. You're over thinking this and over complicating it. You seem fixated on these minor details. This obsession is normal if you have autism but it's also necessary to reflect on your own behaviour and pause for a moment. If everyone is telling you that you're obsessing over pointless shit you probably are.

        I'm not trying to be rude but this is classic autistic behaviour and it's ok mate everyone gets caught up on things but if you're this stressed out you need to first acknowledge your behaviour isn't normal nor conductive to a happy life. You're not going to be happy obsessing about insoluble fibre intake along with vitamin A on a Tuesday afternoon after work. If you recall that game QWOP where each key controls a muscle group. You're trying to run in QWOP mode now anon. It's shit. Stop overthinking it and just walk

        That's a really broad question and the type of data that is convincing to people can vary widely. I could tell you to eat to meet YOUR nutritional needs without getting too much of the harmful (to YOU) components in food but that isn't very helpful unless we go through all the extensive details. Like you could have familial hypercholesterolimia and that would result in dietary cholesterol being able to easily elevate blood cholesterol to dangerous levels or you could consume it and clear it from the blood effectively.

    First of all, disregard 90% of the peanut gallery here. Secondly, by eating intuitively and following seasons, giving what my body needs, poring over all sources of research, and determining from there to do what is right for my own body and needs. It is good to keep questioning things but ultimately, no one knows you better than you.
    Your intent matters, so prepare your food thoughtfully and with love. Be thankful, it makes a difference.

    Insoluble fiber is just bulky matter for shitting it does nothing it's pretty much inert besides pull water into itself because of its osmotic properties. But it can irritate some people's gi tract.
    Soluble fiber is absorbed and is the one that affects blood sugar, and fat absorbtion this is where the myth that it's heart healthy comes from. It's not really healthy or unhealthy unless you're a diabetic or eating such carb heavy meals your blood sugar has peaks and crashes. This is largely mitigated by just not eating a ton of carbs in a short window.
    Most dietary substances are highly contextual based on the amount, age, race/genetics, gi health, sex, exercise habits, other dietary substances and diseases a person may have. So that's why there's no absolute consensus on everything and why you're probably not going to get to the bottom of it unless you make an AI to filter the research down to things studies with participants closest to you and by their credibility of which there is alarmingly little.

    its not that big of a deal really, just understand calories, ratios between carbs, protein and fat thats it.
    You can literally eat the same thing everyday as long as its good quality food you'll be fine

      That won't help you. Eat more lean beef, lamb, chicken. Grilled or stewed mainly.

    I monitor my skin appearance, mood and energy levels constantly throughout the day. I am aware of some of the "active ingredients" and over time I am able to draw correlations on what food types and nutritional patterns work for me. My diet is slightly unconventional and it changes but I improve over time and my vitality reflects that, my quality of life has risen as a result. You have to find what works for you this way, some people are more sensitive to the foods they eat whereas others don't feel the effects as much.

    >inb4 "eat what?"
    Food that is not too processed, a bit of everything. Change ratios until you find what works for you. How often you eat, at what time, when do you drink during the meal and all that moronic stuff doesn't matter for your gains (unless you're in the top 1% of athletes). It may matter for your well being but not for your gains

    Just read older books on diet, from before basedence. It makes a lot more sense than what we have today. Just go back to the 1980s, it's already much better. Or maybe the 50s. Or go to before the 1900s, ie before CICO was invented.

    If you eat more than 4 or 5 things, you're degenerate
    There is only:
    milk, beef, eggs, fruits, honey
    if you anything other than that, you're doing it wrong and you are part of the problem
