    Nutrition research articles are usually pretty blah. They make outrageous claims like alcohol is healthier than exercise or eating a handful of nuts daily extends life by a decade!

    This week we cover a great study funded by the NIH that proves a casual relationship between weight gain and processed foods!

    This is because America's idea of producing food prioritizes shelf life and maximum sales weight over nutritional value or even flavor. This is why you see shelf stable and heat to serve products full of artificial substances, sodium, and hydrogenated fats or palm kernel oil.

    I disagree that processed foods are cheaper than cooking your own food. The only thing that's "cheaper" is the time cost, and even then it's debatable or not worth the health risks.

    This was always obvious to me. To me it seems that processed foods are cooked, long term stored, and loaded with non-food filler to the point of not being nutritious (both because of degradation from processing and storing and counteracting effects of all the filler) or able to be utilized by your body at all. You will miss all the micronutrients that actually nourish you and make you feel full on top of whatever negative effects the non-food ingredients have on your body. A home-cooked meal from whole foods will always make you full faster because you aren't essentially starving yourself by only eating pure calories with no nutrition like you are with processed food. This lack of nutrient balance in your body plus the overeating of sheer caloric intake and fake foods disrupting your hormones etc. no doubt is a deadly combo.

    It's easy to find out. Eat completely home-cooked foods from raw and whole ingredients, don't overcook them or let them degrade too long in storage after preparation, then eat highly processed foods. You will stay hungry eating processed foods as well as find a creeping lethargy as the days go on because your nutritional balance is off in some way.

    They should do this kind of study with the Ketogenic diet along with all the other diets to see which one is best.

    Something to also consider: back in the day(grandparents/great grandparents) a lot of folk worked super physical jobs. What gives you energy? Fats and sugars. My gran used to tell me some of the things they'd eat and just omg no. Spam sandwiches. Likr just spam and mayo. It wad cheap, filling, and provided energy for doing all the things. That behavior gets passed down and folks still eat stuff like that because energy even though a lot of us are living way more sedentary lives.

    That's it? High amount of calories? Just eat them less, problem solved. I wouldn't say they're bad just coz they full of calories, you're just more limited how much you can eat them before gettin' weight.

    I will never understand why eating healthier costs more money. It’s incredibly shocking that low SES individuals are almost forced to eat unhealthier. Unbelievable.

    Shouldn't the experiment have made it so participates ate the same amount of both to compare the actual difference in type of food? Pretty sure we all know eating more results in weight gain.

    Now they need to replicate the study multiple times. A study done once is great but replication is important to truly prove it
