This is allw ell and good, but ity is pure conjecture, you have provided no scientific data to prove this theory of real food being bettert than supplementing to hit micronutrients.
I am not attacking clean eating. I am not looking for arguements, I was merely hoping proponents of clean eating could provide me some peer reviewed studes, concrete data or anything that overwhelmingly states in clear fact that vitamin and fiber supplements are less effective than eating lots of fruit and or vegetables.
Anything without evidence is not an answer I am looking for.
I myself can find no evidence that clearly proves vitamins from food is superior, more absorbance or gives you any other noticeable benefits.
If you eat a high fat snack with your vitamins the absorption rate is optimal and not an issue.
Anyone who can prove micro nutrients from food are better than those from supplements, please post some evidence.
By the way guys, thanks for the answers, I appreciate the interest but I am only after scientific data, not personal anecdotes.
