I am starting this in analogy with "the Food Thread". The point of this is to thread is to house people's comments and to collect their resources and to foster discussion about the highly important and relevant-to-our-daily-lives topic of human nutrition. I want people to post here particularly healthy meals that they have discovered as well as particularly unhealthy meals that they want to warn people against eating. I want people to post here their concerns and questions and dilemmas associated with how to consume food and beverages in such a way as to optimally supply your body with what it needs. Here are some useful resources that I have found for nutrition: 1. The book "Understanding Nutrition" by Eleanor Ross Whitney is now in its 11th Edition and I think it is the most commonly used book in introductory college level nutrition classes: http://www.amazon.com/Understanding-Nutrition-CD-ROM-InfoTrac/dp/0534622267 I checked out the 9th edition from my university's library and from Chapter 1 it began debunking my misconceptions about nutrition and opening up my world to a whole new outlook on eating. Basically everything I knew about nutrition before I read this book, I learned from my parents and from my first grade teacher which is sad because nutrition is a thriving field of science and thus deserves a lot more attention and consideration than just learning about it from hearsay and popular mass-media magazines. 2. "Nutrition Today" magazine. I read the three most recent issues and I was really impressed by the professional quality of the articles. The articles range from the history of nutrition to the regulation of nutritional labeling to the forefront of nutritional science. 3. http://www.mypyramid.gov/ This is of course the standard point of entry for someone interested in nutrition in the United States although I have personally had some trouble making effective use of that site.
