    Does the same apply if you’re an ectomorph who just wants to be healthy?

  2. Jon says:

    The dietary guidelines I suggested should make/keep anyone healthy, regardless of the speed of their metabolism. Rich in protein, fiber, vitamins, minerals, phytochemicals, and heart-healthy fats, the foods listed above will completely – and effectively – sustain human life. An ectomorph can simply get away with eating a larger quantity of food without gaining [as much] weight.

    My roommate (my older sis) has her doctorate in nutritional science. She’s a health FANATIC, and you just described 90% of her diet. Truly impressive.

    What about the cholesterol in eggs?

    • Jon says:

      Cholesterol isn’t the enemy. In fact, it’s absolutely necessary for the production of vitamin D, as well as estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, and other hormones. Some studies actually suggest that it acts as an antioxidant. I don’t believe the constant monitoring of one’s cholesterol intake is at all necessary unless you have a true genetic predisposition toward abnormally high cholesterol levels, in which case it might be beneficial to restrict it according to a competent doctor’s recommendations. That said, eggs are an excellent food source; especially if they’re organic.

    Awesome info, but what about calcium? The diet seems deficient in that.

    • Jon says:

      It isn’t. Salmon, mackerel, and sardines are good sources of calcium. Spinach has it too. As does kale. And broccoli. And romaine lettuce. And quinoa. And almonds. And walnuts. And – especially – cheese. All of which I suggested.

    Aren’t you a fucking know it all. Arrogant prick.

    • Jon says:

      You are attempting to antagonize me with simple inflammatory comments as a result of a wide variety of fundamental insecurities that cause you to feel intellectually inferior around people who actually know what they’re talking about. Hush now.

  7. Natalie says:

    I’m not the one who gets off on others faults and mistakes, asshole.

    • Jon says:

      Here you’re making an effort to detract from my last comment via shifting the focus to something completely inaccurate and absolutely irrelevant. You did that because A) You were unable to form any valid, intelligent response, and B) Changing the subject was far easier than addressing the basis of my initial comment (that you’re lashing out at me because of insecurities surrounding your lack of intelligence). Once again, it’s time to hush.

    Fuck you, you ego tripping piece of shit!

    • Jon says:

      Exclamation points are used to portray emotion. Curse words can serve a similar purpose. That said, “Fuck you, you ego tripping piece of shit!” is a very emotional response. It’s a volatile overreaction; one that leads me to believe you are having difficulty dealing with the sudden understanding that I’ve made swift work of revealing how unable you are to cope with certain realities; that there are, in fact, many people out there, who, compared to you, know a lot more about everything. Remember what I said about hushing?

  9. Natalie says:

    You aren’t shit.

    • Jon says:

      Lastly, you’re projecting. My analysis of what lies beneath your frustrated logic has left you feeling worthless, so you chose to say something that you hoped would leave me feeling equally without worth. Alas, it didn’t pan out. Better luck next time. And don’t forget to hush on the way out.

    I thought frying with olive oil was bad?

    • Jon says:

      If you are a fan of frying, use a small amount of high quality coconut oil. If you’re cooking at lower temperatures, olive oil should be just fine.
