For The Love of Food

Welcome to Friday’s For The Love of Food, Summer Tomato’s weekly link roundup.

Tough decisions were made this week to narrow it down to 10 stories. Love the calorie infographic, also the commentary by Dr. Ludwig on industrial food and the “small” 32 oz. soda at a SF movie theater.

Want to see all my favorite links? Be sure to follow me on on Digg, Twitter (@summertomato) or the Summer Tomato Facebook fan page. I’m very active on all these sites and would love to connect with you.

    The LA Times article on processed food interviews David Ludwig, not Bob Lustig (in which case it might have been more fructose-centric). It’s confusing that the two big names in that area are so similar – I’ve made the same mistake :)

    Routine Periodic Fasting Is Good for Your Health, and Your Heart, Study Suggests <<Fasting data is a lot more convincing than the “eat every 2-3 hrs” data. Just saying. (ScienceDaily)

    This links to the wrong site.

  3. I so love deviled eggs. I could eat and eat and eat until sick.

    Here’s my favorite way, with salmon roe & nori.

    Love your Friday wrap-up, Darya. I find fun/interesting new sites.

  5. I don’t disagree with you in principle re supplements, but if my fuzzy math is correct (and Science Daily is right re the 15-25K IU doses), they were giving these mice ~1000 IU of vitamin D per gram of body weight. That’s roughly equivalent to about 68 *million* IU for the average 150lb person. Yeah, I could imagine that could be problematic!

      Good point. I have a lot of trouble trusting rodent nutrition studies in general. But I like to demonstrate whenever possible how *NOT* black and white nutrition is, so that none of us start pretending we know everything for everyone.

    Thanks for the heads up on the fasting reference – I’m very interested in that idea.

    Interesting who funded that sugar study… :). Not surprising, is it? I wouldn’t take much of anything from those results. The powers of retrospective data… I do like the mindfulness idea though. Or, it could be that people who are eating lots of candy don’t want to report it (self-presentation bias), and those who eat some do report it, so the people who are reporting eating candy are thinner than those who don’t report eating (but do eat) any at all!I probably would have put a “?” at the end of your title for that article.

    I agree with Beth. That mouse study involved ridiculously large doses, and there is some nicely done, placebo controlled, double-blinded research that show benefits of taking vitamin D that are far lower than the dosages in that study (and much more likely to be helping with Vitamin D deficits). I hope that this kind of study (with this kind of publicity) doesn’t cause people who take vitamin D (because their levels are <30) to stop taking it.

    Congrats on the PhD Darya!

    Best,
    Ashley

    It appears that the benefits/risks of IF may be gender-specific.
