The /r/Nutrition Personal Nutrition Discussion Post (August 12, 2019)


Welcome to the weekly /r/Nutrition feature post for personal circumstance questions and diet evaluation requests. Wondering if you are eating too much of something, not enough of something, or if what you regularly eat has the nutritional content you want or need? Ask here.

Rules for Questions

  • Nutrition related questions about your specific diet may be asked. However, before asking, please remember to check the FAQ first and see if it has already been covered in the subreddit.

  • You MAY NOT ask for advice as to how a nutritional choice would impact a specific medial condition. Consult a professional.

  • If you do not get an answer here, you still may not create a post about it. Not having an answer does not give you an exception to the Personal Nutrition posting rule.

Rules for Responders

  • Support your claims – Where applicable ALL responses should support any claims made by including links to science based evidence / studies / data. Need to find the evidence and track down primary sources? Try looking for information at PubMed or Google Scholar. Other sources of nutrition information can be found at the USDA Food Composition Database, NutritionData, Nutrition Journal, and Nutrition.gov (a service of the National Agricultural Library).

  • Keep it civil – Converse WITH the other person rather than conversing ABOUT the other person. If you disagree about the science, the source(s), or the interpretation(s) then do so civilly. Any personal attacks will be removed and may lead to a ban. Let moderators know of these kinds of issues by using the report button below any comments containing personal attacks.

  • Keep it on topic – This subreddit is for discussion about nutrition. Disparaging commentary about others is off topic. Non-nutritional facets of food are even off topic. Off topic comments will be removed. Let moderators know of these kinds of issues by using the report button below any comments which are off topic.
