    Dunkin’ Donuts: The Curious Case of the Executive Chef and ‘Productive Calories’

    1296003983712Yes, I know.  I often pick on Dunkin’ Donuts.  I’ve alluded to the fact that if “America runs on Dunkin’”, then it’s probably gasping for air after twenty seconds.  I’ve repeatedly pointed out some of the chain’s horrific nutrition figures (i.e: their large mocha contains as much added sugar as nine Oreo cookies).  And, yes, I’ve “WTF”-ed at some of their ingredient choices (their cheese danish contains over 60 ingredients, including high fructose corn syrup, two artificial dyes, and partially hydrogenated oils).

    And, well, their new YouTube channel — which showcases their DDSmart “healthier-for-you” choices (read my harsh critique of said choices here) — just adds to that bowl of fun soup.

    You Ask, I Answer: Omega-3s Increase Type 2 Diabetes Risk?

    080708193249-largeWhat are your thoughts on the reported link between omega-3 intake and type 2 diabetes recently published in an article featured in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition?

    The AJCN is a well-respected, top-of-the-line journal, so it is no surprise that many of its studies resonate all over the Internet.

    This one, titled “Dietary omega-3 fatty acids and fish consumption and risk of type 2 diabetes” is particularly controversial, since its main conclusion is that there appears to be “an increased risk of type-2 diabetes with the intake of long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, especially with higher intakes (more than 0.20 g omega-3, or more than 2 servings of fish a day.)”

    You Ask, I Answer: Low Histamine Diets for Skin Issues?

    Atopic_dermatitis_childI have some autoimmune issues, namely atopic dermatitis, which flares up for mostly unknown reasons. Some of it has to do with having an immune system that over reacts to environment (certain materials, chemicals in soaps) and food.

    I’ve read that eating a diet of low histamine foods can really help.  Your posts about food and medical issues really inspired me and I thought you might have some helpful thoughts.

    While histamines can’t be singled out as the cause of conditions like atopic dermatitis, eczema, and rosacea, a good percentage of people who struggle with those conditions are highly sensitive to histamines in food, and should, in my opinion, try out a histamine-free (or at least very low-histamine) diet for a few weeks to see if this alleviates symptoms.
