What are your most stimulating nutritional foods?

For me it is bananas, melons and milk. Sausage would be a contender, but it's full of sulfites and not nutritious. What are yours? Feel free to post a picture if you have that inclination.

Since exercise no longer affects TDEE, should the activity multiplier always = 1 now?

In the old days when exercise affected TDEE, we would recommend people use a multiplier against their BMR, based on activity and exercise level and frequency. Now that exercise no longer affects TDEE, should we just recommend people to use a multiplier of 1?
