I ate the way they said to and exercised every day for years. My job is physical. I only ate Oreos in true emergency situations like family gatherings and baby showers. I believed the whole-grain myth as much as anyone ever has.
I taught it in class. But then I realized something was wrong and started looking at the science and it became blatently apparent that it was time to either look at things from a different perspective or just give up entirely.
When I started this I was so opposed to change that I'm sure I drove everyone around me insane by repeating over and over, "Look, I'm not going to be able to do this, but FOR NOW I'm just not going to eat that."
No one could have convinced me that I would EVER come to prefer eating the way I do now. But I feel so much better, I lost a LOT of weight, my blood work has NEVER been better and to top it off, the food is fucking fantastic.
I know you won't believe me, but my almond flour brownies are the best brownies I've ever eaten. Clients are offering to pay me to make them for them. When you hear that they're sugar free, grain free and no artificial sweeteners you have to think they must taste like shit. But people LOVE them. They're millions of times better than any Oreo cookie I've ever eaten. No one is more picky than me about food, especially snacks. Not even Adam.
The down side is that I have to cook them. I don't love cooking. I still put it off until there's nothing left in the fridge but some lemons, frozen grass-fed beef and dead lettuce. But because I don't like cooking, I've boiled this down to simple, but rich, filling, totally delicious food that actually makes me forget that Oreos exist. Whenever I'm out somewhere and there's something I used to eat that I don't think I'm going to be able to pass up, if there are almond flour brownies in the freezer at home, I can always find a way to ignore the bad food in front of my face. I could never do that before.
The reason I can do this is because it's so much fun. Part of what's fun is finally learning the truth about how the body works and how to trick myself into going against my ingrained-by-our-culture ways of eating and getting to what makes me feel good and is actually healthy. It was a mindfuck at first but now it's easy.
And it finally makes sense.

You didn't answer...the question.

I love you guys

Haha I don't really care about Erguments so much as silly silver bullet nutrition type crap. In like every chingchonger country they consume tons of PUFAs and refined carb's (white ri') yet are pretty healthy, and you can find huge exceptions to whatever the nutrition industry pushed every 3 year cycle, yet there's always this new single cause that's supposedly why postindustrialized nations are fat fucks.
It's never holy shit you're a sedentary fuck and consume too many high calorie foods; it's always oh you're getting too many PUFAs, insulin spiking foods, fats, processed foods, whatever so that some magical change is going to give you a 6 pack.
If there's anything we can really take out of this debate is that Jerma really is a woman and isn't pretending to be one like 99.994% of the "girls" on the internet. No man takes any and all criticism and views it as personal attacks like she does.

I thought the lack of a sense of humor or understanding irony was the assurance she was a broad either that or she's the newbie engineer juco concrete thinker dude.

I had to vote "top of the line" because I don't think they're overrated. They are rated just fine as a decent store bought cookie, though in the grand scheme of cookies I don't think they're the best.

Over-rated by itself, but top of the line when milk is in play.

Never been a fan of oreos, not even when i was a kid. I was always more into chewy softer cookies and baked treats rather than crispy dry ones. I do enjoy cookies and creme ice cream though.

Can we vote on the cookie alone? The filling is fine but not the good part. I could eat one of those Oreo pie crusts by itself. Mmmmm.

Twinkie diet helps nutrition professor lose 27 pounds
http://www.cnn.com/2010/HEALTH/11/08/twink...ssor/index.html
For 10 weeks, Mark Haub, a professor of human nutrition at Kansas State University, ate one of these sugary cakelets every three hours, instead of meals. To add variety in his steady stream of Hostess and Little Debbie snacks, Haub munched on Doritos chips, sugary cereals and Oreos, too.
An N = 1 study, but a very clean design.

The problem with this poll is that the options for selection are poorly worded. Not sure if the contrast should be Overated VS Top of the Line Cookie. If you are going to use over rated, it then should be VS underrated.
The correct answer is it's neither. It's a fucking mass produced lunch snack/desert. Which is quite good with milk. (despite the input of some tards here). And because it's so well hated, that not only do they have outstanding sales, but many companies create imitation products. Yes, people HATE oreos! No market for that at all.
I declare this poll null and void. The conclusions are founded on poor poll question design. It probably would have been better to simply have it as like VS dislike.

It is rated as the cookie of america, the top of the line cookie.
So top of the line cookie vs overrated.
Poll is accurate. You complain because your precious Oreos suck.
