I did a search but I didn't find anything.

I feel like I don't know anything about nutrition. Sure, everybody knows chocolate is bad, too much sugar makes you fat, etc. But there is enough contradictory information out there that I'm not sure where some things stand.

If I see something that has 100 calories and 60 of them are from fat, why do I care whether the calories it was 100 calories with 10 from fat and 90 from sugar or vice versa?

Carbs from pasta are good for building muscle. Carbs from pasta/rice make you fat. Carbs give you energy. Carbs cause your body to release insuline which makes you tired.

Most mainstream nutrition information seems to come from new "experts" that tell you that you can eat what you want whlie still losing weight if you just follow their secret. That secret can be no bread, lots of yogurt, etc.

Here's the main question: Do you have a favorite website that avoids trendy diets and explains proper nutrition?
 
have you ever heard of KASHI. its a whole grain cereal that is great for you (whole grains, high fiber, high protein).......anyway their website has good info, and they have a newsletter. http://www.kashi.com

i hope it isn't reparation for hiroshima and nagasaki.........although it would make more sense to poison mcdonalds to kill americans, then it would to poison something healthy.
 
I saw an interesting programme on american health and obesity the other day and this generation of children in america are the fist to ever have a life expectancy lower than their parents...this is due to all the sugary and fatty foods that are so easily available and cheap in your country.

As for nutrition advice http://www.anitabean.co.uk/nutritionforsport.html has some good info.

We're just the first. Great Britain and a number of other first world countries aren't far behind.

McDonalds started in America, it didn't end there. Remember that, outworlders.
