I’m taking Nutrition 150 from San Diego City College online, and I swear every person in my class is fucking retarded. The book isn’t much better.
The book recommend not more than 15% of your diet coming from protein, citing kidney failure, increased cholesterol, and ketoacidosis as side effects of a high protein diet. One of our discussion boards posed the question, “Are high protein diets the best way to lose weight?” Everyone said no because of the above dangers. No one thought to eat vegetables with their meat in this diet, apparently.
I’m constantly arguing with other students about their ridiculous beliefs, like HFCS being the largest cause of obesity. Contributing factor yes, but the reason? No, that’s because we eat too much and don’t work out. We’re lazy and stupid. Shock.
