So my friend Harley posted on my recent post About Keeping an Empty Inbox and I looked over it again and saw the line about how having a bunch of unfinished tasks can be overwhelming. I have a bunch of unfinished tasks.
I have a lot of research that I want to put together in a more presentable form. I have studied nutrition for five years now and have put together loads of info that have very powerful implications.
I found mistakes in the National Academy of Sciences Recommendations for Daily Allowances. I have compared nutritional profiles of the major constituents of human diets. I have researched protein requirements in depth. Recently I've been on a tear learning about Calcium and Phosphorous and the ideal ratio. Nutritionists and governments are recommending a 1:1 ratio... but how that is possible when they also recommend grains as the foundation of diet is unthinkable given that grains have a 1:10 to a 1:15 ratio and are packing it in too. It would be one thing if 1000 calories of oats had 1 mg of calcium and 40 mgs of phosphorous because that would have a far lesser effect on total Ca:P balance.
The USDA came out with it's new food plate and here's what they recommend for adult men to eat in a day.
Here they say 3 cups per day http://www.choosemyplate.gov/foodgroups/dairy_amount.aspx
And here they say 6 cups of cottage cheese = 3 cups of dairy. http://www.choosemyplate.gov/foodgroups/dairy_counts.html
