>>7639328 >>self-reported compliance >many people lie to themselves 24/7 Uh yeah, I was just wondering if maybe the guidelines are stated in a retarded way such that when the average person tries to follow them, they get fatass mode.
>>7639389 You'll find no citations here. I can't see a viable way to even evaluate it and control for everything you'd need to. The set of "data" that poster included is evidence of this on its own.
No, I don't have any organized evidence. But from what I know about biology, food, and people, I'm relatively sure whatever working conclusions I come to are reasonably accurate in the ways they need to be. Simple heuristics can be used to internally control for error.
>>7639397 >I can't see a viable way to even evaluate it and control for everything you'd need to. Just give people access to a stocked pantry and tell them to eat according to various sets of guidelines. Control group is told to eat as they normally would. Come back in a month to check changes in nutrition status and weight.
>>7639406 >This doesn't show how a population responds to a set of dietary guidelines being released by some government body. It shows the real results of someone trying to follow them though, which should be significant I think if the goal is for it to help people who use it.
Shouldn't be too expensive anyway considering how much the US at least spends on foodstamps already. If it reduces obesity 1% it would pay for itself in a year lol.
>>7639407 >It shows the real results of someone trying to follow them though, which should be significant I think if the goal is for it to help people who use it. I suppose I'd agree with that. I more meant determining what effect the mere existence of the guidelines had in a broader sense.
>>7639416 >I more meant determining what effect the mere existence of the guidelines had in a broader sense. Right. Yeah that's a tough one. Guess the only way to test it would be to recall all officially released guidelines and tell everyone to eat how they want/think is best and track the results. Obviously it would be difficult to draw sound conclusions because the plethora of variables but it would be interesting nonetheless.
