I guess I'm not interested enough in the latest nutrition speculation/biohacking to dial in. If I have a genuine question that might lead to something I'm willing to act on, I'll look it up. Don't have the bandwidth or need to passively filter other people's flavor of the month. They aren't liable to give me anything better than "eat more whole foods and stay active".I get that, but personally I don’t have the time or the skills to dig through mountains of research, evaluate methodologies, guess at why some things contradict, etc.
Pretty much all I can do reliably is ignore in vitro studies and assume RCTs are probably pretty good.
I find people that do go through those studies and provide wrap ups like MASS do give a great value add.
Granted there are a TON of people that try to masquerade as doing the above, but are just fishing for the next fitness/ nutrition trend. They are pretty easy to spot if you stay on the biohacker trends. Just searching for “seed oils” in their past pieces usually gives you some insight into their credibility or tolerance for proof.
Fitness is even easier to spot a charlatan. Do their program for a while. If it sucks you will know quick.
I get that this isn't really in the spirit of the OP, but I have learned to tune out a lot of contemporary "new insights" into age old issues. Too many wind up being nothingburger or (case in point Attia's anti-sugar crusade) turn out to be factually wrong.
