highly processed

That's kinda a bullshit term.

do not taste better than foods cooked from scratch

Not when I do it, true, but everyone else, I dunno.

Also a whole of lot unhealthy people gorge themselves on the blandest foods, taste isn't what drives their eating habits.

Couldn't you simply eat precisely the amount of sugar that your body needs

If people could than they would, but they can't so they are fat.

Isn't there really a whole lot going on with satiation besides sugar?

Sure there is more, but that does not mean this sugar effect is not very powerful.

Mightn't you be conflating sugar with grains just a teensie bit a la donuts, cookies, cake, cereal, etc?

No. Most of those products are loaded with sugar.

Even though carbs are complex sugars they likely wont have the same affect on apetite because they are not naturally found in high fiber foods.

Aren't you arguing that fiber has some sort of magical role in the body?

No.

Isn't arguing for a zero-sugar diet pretty much just rejecting the evidence that every great ape consumes massive amounts of sugar?

No.

If you are trying to lose weight then eating sugar is counter productive because your body will react by making you more hungery and over consume.

Nothing about that statement is false, nor does any of your categorization apply.

This is the crux of it all. In nature sugar has to be extracted from fibrous sources which means you need to eat a lot of the source material to get a usable amount of sugar. That is most likely why we evolved to get more hungery and eat far more when we consume sweet food.

Imo highly processed foods do not taste better than foods cooked from scratch. They only taste better than the cardboard flavour they would have without the extra flavourings. They process foods to extend self life and reduce costs then have to process it some more to get people to actually eat it.

Also a whole of lot unhealthy people gorge themselves on the blandest foods, taste isn't what drives their eating habits.

༼⁠ ⁠つ⁠ ⁠◕⁠‿⁠◕⁠ ⁠༽⁠つ food science

Saying highly processed foods are bad and calling it a day is a little weak. We engineer food to make it taste better. It is the goal of every cook, every chef, every food manufacturer to produce a good tasting product. And we use science to do this.

Salt. Fat. Acid. Heat. Sugar. Chemical additives. These are some of our favorite food things.

u/melodic_programmer always gives me shit I use Knorr brand bouillon a lot. I use it because it has msg, disodium guanylate, and disodium inosinate. I add those to my salt as well. It makes things taste better than they otherwise would.

This boils down to: yes, we wouldn't overeat if our food tasted worse.

Didn't you kinda sorta miss the fact that they consume 40 pounds of greens per day? Aren't succulent greens actually rather high in sugars if you start counting them by the pound? Isn't this normally the only alternative to sugar consumption for great apes? Don't we pretty much observe the same behavior in orangutans when their favorite fruits aren't in season? Wouldn't they probably consume large amounts of sugar every day if they could?

The "classical" Christian-influenced afterlife is bs. There is no tunnel and no heaven.

I'm not sure if there is a hell, or maybe life on this planet itself is hell. But every time I had a near-death experience: There never was a tunnel with light or this usual anecdotal bs.

There were ravens circling above my head and the sky was all diffusely "dark" lit with no feeling of gravity itself. My teeth I then took out crumbled like sand one time, e.g.

But I neither saw a light nor a tunnel so far.

Neurons in particular must have intracellular computational abilities. I don't buy the claim that all the thoughts and ideas are contained in the arrangement of axons.

This type of AI has also predicted that there are double the amount of processes that go on inside a human cell than what we know. Also, this AI seems to be better than humans of diagnosing medical conditions.

NPCs are REAL. Check the EYES for No 'MINDS EYE'. They have a physical telltale. That’s crazy how so many people literally don't have thoughts. I never knew there were people that existed who couldn’t think. by Chipit in science

it's not a test to determine NPCs.

Yeah it is. It's literally what it is. How else do you explain people who support the current thing, who get all of their opinions from the media, and vote how they're instructed to vote? There is no thinking going on. Just like a scripted NPC in a video game.

It's just a different way of thinking, it's not a test to determine NPCs. There's pros and cons. Some people think aphantasia is linked to the ability to speed read. Did you know most people sound out every word they read in an internal monologue and that limits how fast they can read. If you don't have to imagine something, it frees you up to process abstract data faster. That's the idea anyways.

I identify with some of the things the articles said, like thinking counting sheep was a turn of a phrase, and bad spatial memory, although I have the ability to visualize things, I don't generally rely on it.

Yeah my exes sister was really skinny and went to the hospital with pains and had a kid like really fast right after she got there. Really fucking weird, and the baby wasn't small to the point it was premature. Nobody knew she was pregnant. Obviously she didn't either.

I've heard it happen to a skinny person before. Pregnant women don't actually need to get that big, it's mostly fluid not baby (and over eating). Likely as a flight attendant she's quite tall so has more space in her torso than the average woman.

I find this story hard to believe, considering she's a flight attendant. I've heard of this happening, but the mother is always obese.

There's a "spark" released when a spermatozoon meets an ovum. Scientists just took a picture of it. by iamonlyoneman in science

Nevermind that they had to play god to do it. This is a chemical reaction that emits a fluorescence that's detectable.

Hot take: Women who knew the moment they had conceived a baby may actually have sensed this event. Fascinating.

Science has become a game of creating the most alarming claims to get the most attention and funding. No one who challenges the desired narrative of the wealth holders gets any attention, money, or notoriety.
