**Uranium for sure. 18 Billion callories and you only need 5 grams to die.**

Oh wow didn’t expect this to get more upvotes that the post itself.

I remember reading about state fairs serving deep fried butter. That cannot be good.

When I was overweight I used to pick up these cookies from my local supermarket all the time, they were ~£1/$1 and came with 5. When I started understanding calories and macronutrients I looked on the back and seen 500kcal/100g… it didn’t specify the weight of the cookies. I checked the weight of them and it was 200g, a pack of cookies was 1000kcal

Baklava and stroopwafel have to be up there; not only is it easy to overeat them but they’re also caloric dense. I still love them though!

Which foods should always be eaten together, so that the nutrients can best absorbed? (And why?)

Off the top of my head~

Iron and Vitamin C (significantly increases absorption of non-heme iron)

Vitamin D and Calcium (the active form of Vitamin D in the body is involved in a cycle that increases the intestinal absorption of calcium)

Foods rich in fat soluble vitamins (A, D, E, K) with a healthy fat source to increase absorption.

I believe there’s also been recent research to show that the combination of Sulforaphane (found in broccoli sprouts, kale, cauliflower) and selenium (highest in Brazil nuts and other protein rich foods) which are known to have powerful antioxidant properties, potentially exhibit anti-cancer effects in the body 🥦

Bonus- consuming tomatoes with a fat source (such as olive oil) significantly increases the absorption and bioavailability of a powerful antioxidant found in tomatoes called lycopene 🙂

EDIT- taking vitamin K2 alongside Calcium is also important, as it helps ‘shunt’ the calcium to the bones, and prevents arterial buildup which can lead to cardiovascular disease

What’s the most beneficial thing to cut from a diet?

People are just saying sugar. The easiest source of sugar to cut out is soft drinks

Alcohol is frequently overlooked in this discussion but is a perfectly acceptable answer and would trump many of the ‘tik tok nutrition’ answers that are most commonly received. Red meat, for example, is actually one of the most nutrient-dense foods on Earth. Alcohol, on the other hand, not only lacks nutritional value, but depletes pre-existing nutritional stores.

Processed/refined sugar. It is nutritionally empty, spikes blood sugar, and overall has no redeeming qualities.

I know this is not what OP asked, but I will offer up anyways.

I personally focus on ADDING vegetables to every meal, rather than cutting any particular food group out. I find this mindset and approach very easy because I am still allowed to consume all my favorite foods.

So if I’m having a burger, I will opt for a salad as my side instead of fries. If I’m eating a sandwich and chips, I will include fresh carrots and cucumbers on the side.

Food for thought 🙂

alcohol and sugar. alcohol is literal poison and beer is a massive source of carbs, sugar is just extra calories with literally zero benefits.

both taste good as fuck though.
