Food for Thought (articles)

This is where you’ll find my easy to understand articles that explain the science of health, nutrition and diet in terms that people without a science background can understand. In the archives, there are also a few personal articles that are marked as such, about my own health- and weight-recovery journey.

As of the end of December 2020, there were 188 articles that I have written in total with a few key articles organized by topic here.
