And it just so happens that they have a book to sell as well, what a coincidence!

My rule of thumb is that if a diet pins all dietary problems on one "evil" food ("Wheat is what's making you fat!") or claims that a single "superfood" can fix everything ("These acai berries cure cancer!"), it's probably full of shiat.

tl;dr summary of this article:

"I've fallen for every stupid fad diet that's come down the pipeline in the last 20 years and none of them have worked. But this one totally will. For reals. Also, ain't us girls stupid?"

If you want to lose weight, there are several reliable ways. Loss of limb is quite common, and effective. A diet high in fecal matter is also usually fairly effective.

Don't eat too much sugar. Eat a fair amount of fruits and veggies. Eat reasonable amounts of salt. Avoid trans fats.

Eat an amount of food that reflects your amount of activity ( more food and more exercise is better than less food and less exercise).

It's not more complicated than that ( could be less complicated ).

Anyone who says otherwise is selling you something.

I blame being fat on the food instead of my inability to control my portions and the fact that I'm a lazy-ass that refuses to exercise.

The problem with article like these (aside from the obviously fact that they're all high on the placebo effect) is that it would be easy to eat healthy if someone would come to my house and make me things like trout fillets with carrot taglietelle and curry on a daily basis with variations to keep my interest.  I bet I'd be damn happy if that happened too.

In reality it's a win today that I have leftover fish tacos in the fridge or I might just eat cereal for lunch after a busy Saturday at work.

Bullshiat level: High

From the alleged neuropharmacologist: The most beautiful thing to eat when you have heartbreak is turkey, because turkey has the amino acid tryptophan, which is the basis of our hormone serotonin. But the girls just don't know that.

Even if this notion that tryptophan cures heartbreak weren't BS, this would still be nonsense, since turkey does not, in fact, have particularly high levels of tryptophan.

You know what does? Chocolate. Also cheese.

So maybe "the girls" are smarter than the so-called expert.

Snarcoleptic_Hoosier: The rule I've heard is eat more colors: Green, Red, Yellow, Orange. And then avoid white things.

Seems to work well enough. Haven't gained any weight from college.

/Green popsicles totally count

This is why I smother my baked potatoes in butter, cheese, bacon and chives.  Sour cream is okay because it makes the other colors stand out.

It's like when my brother started the paleo diet and my mother said he was losing weight and feeling better. I said, "That's what happens when you control portion sizes and actually monitor what stuff goes in your pie hole." She was disappointed I wasn't wowed by the awesomeness of the latest fad diet.
