Use reputable sources

Anyone can claim to be a diet expert on the Internet these days. Consequently most available information is misleading junk. To navigate through this jungle only use independent and reputable sources that provide professionally curated information.

Also never forget people’s agendas… The egg industry will always sponsor studies concluding that eggs are wonderful. The dairy industry, the meat industry will do likewise. 

Here are some examples of reputable sources:

The FDA (Links to an external site.)


The Harvard Health Publications (Links to an external site.)


The Mayo Clinic (Links to an external site.)
