This should be required watching for anyone who's out to convert people to their dietary religion . While there are a few points I would argue (the vitamin C thing has been pretty well debunked, and his comments about the Peterson's display a lack of research*), I think you could broadly apply the points he makes to any diet. The need for group identity often interferes with our logical reasoning, and he does a good job of pointing out that there's a pretty significant absence of large-scale clinical dietary data. There are only a few dietary strategies that have been well researched (Mediterranean, low carb, intermittent fasting, vegetarian, SAD), so if you want to do anything else, you're on your own.Brilliant one
I also dig the dry humor, "Now is your time to shine, North Korea"
*I can elaborate on those if anyone would like, but I didn't see the need to leave a multi-paragraph comment about things that are somewhat Google-able.
Another good example of the divergence between often quoted "facts" and where the research is taking us. Back in "the day" many people would have assumed that you couldn't get into ketosis if your protein intake was too high, but I can get into ketosis just fine while eating 2-3 grams of protein per day per kilo of BW. To be fair, I don't stay in ketosis consistently, which might be important for some people.Some great analysis here on studies on ketosis and protein intake
