Most Foods Seem Useless. Any Insights?
I've made a massive spreadsheet of nutrient data for foods and have been comparing them. Most foods seem to be completely useless. There are a few worthwhile, but even those are somewhat suspect. Perhaps, someone can shed some light on this.
For example: for the most part I can't see any reason to eat anything but 20 tbsp a day of spirulina with 3000 calories of various fatty oils. And the rest of all vitamins, minerals, etc filled in using supplements.
This would give me well above the RDA of every nutrient and I'd never have to even look at a stove again.
This thread of course assumes that the person gives not a single $#%^ what it tastes like and is only interested in performance and health.
Anyone have any insights into foods? Some do have special properties like coconut oil being somewhat anti-fungal, but I can also just take much stronger anti-fungals than coconut oil. And the same goes for every food i've found so far. It may do something cool, but it can be replaced with some other supplement that just does it better so why bother eating it.
Of course, please assume, the same as I do, that I am missing some details here and do not have the whole picture. If you do know the things I don't know I don't know, feel free to point out my errors and comment. I am thick skinned ;-)
