Does the 2000 calorie daily recommendation account for the prevalence of obesity?

Almost everyone would swiftly lose weight with this daily allowance, even with a sedentary lifestyle. Almost everyone also eats well above this amount anyway. So, does the recommendation deliberately factor in what in many cases would be a huge caloric deficit in an endeavor to combat the...

Where can I find vegetarian bacon?

I'm considering trying a different religion just for this weekend. The consumption of pork is prohibited, but I like bacon. Are there any sources of non-pork bacon besides turkey? I would be willing to try ostrich or emu bacon, but can't find any.

Why does bottled water only taste like crap AFTER you open it?

I have had various brands of sizes of bottled water for weeks, months, even years. Have left bottles in hot cars for weeks at a time. And every time, when you first open it and break the little safety seal, the water always tastes fresh. HOWEVER, if you open the bottle, take a drink, and then...

Why is the BMI equation needlessly complex?

srs... If BMI is just a formula calculated based on height and weight... why can't you just use height/weight to get a ratio? Why did they instead throw in a bunch of extra steps?

Plain chicken breast is tasty and is not boring: what's your take?

Add some seasoning of your choice, bake it, and then eat it cold the next day by itself. IMO it's refreshing, satisfying, convenient and obviously a jackpot of lean protein, not some kind of a boring chore to eat, or even something that needs to be doused in sauce to make tasty. Obviously it's a...

Why are there no beef rinds or poultry rinds?

There are pork rinds, but no rinds from cows or chickens or any other animal that I can think of. Why is that? Does the food industry discriminate against cows and chickens? If I was a cow, I would sleep better at night if I knew part of my body would be converted to beef rinds.
