Here is a collection of articles and studies that I have collected from accross the internet. Some are from clinical studies and scientific trials, while others are from unacredited sources. Everything here can be considered either conclusive proof of my dieting principles, or simply supporting evidence for the fact that "common" nutritional knowledge, as it has been taught for years, is far from being correct.
