    Well, he’s a marketing guy. Why does he get to have a say on nutrition? I would discard him based on that alone.

    Also:

    “It’s also hard to find compelling research suggesting milk is bad for you”

    which seem strange given that he can list several links on canola oil. Obviously he is not a PubMed kind of guy.

    Yes Oatly is a processed food, but carbohydrates don’t cause diabetes and you don’t get all the sex hormones from oatly that you get from cows milk, nor the saturated fat.

    Ideally you should only drink water, but between cows milk and plant based milk, plant based milk always wins from a health perspective.

    Ohh I’m going to try those! I miss them from my time in China.

    Can also highly recommend vitamix. It’s not fancy, and it’s also pretty loud but it blends everything to atoms!
    All those cheesy sauce recipes where you have to soak the nuts... forget it. Just put the dry nuts in, add some liquid and blend.

    I dont know if you resolved this, but 11/8”=1.125 inches=2.8575 cm

    Which is as close to 28.6 as you can get. Have you tried fitting the stem?

    You can also get square taper chainsets in 110bcd. Sugino makes some, and old Mtb Shimano deore/LX chainset Are also an option.

    That’s just from heel rub.
    It’s slammed so not much adjustability but it’s a great bike for the price.

    You don’t need to go 1/8 on the synch drive.

    If you are lucky those chainsets are 110 bcd, and you can use any inner from a compact chainset, they’ll only be 34t but they’ll be really cheap.
    Pair it with an 8s KMC chain and you’ll have a cheap and strong setup for the synch drive

    It takes quite a while to get a deficiency, and also to reverse one. If you’re iron deficient it’s not going to give you an energy boost from eating some meat.

    You can be vegan on beer and chips, and vegetarian on cheese and eggs alone, but it wouldn’t be a very healthy diet.
    Nutritionfacts.org has something they call the daily dozen, which focuses on what you should try to include in your diet.
    https://nutritionfacts.org/video/dr-greg­ers-daily-dozen-checklist-2/

    If you strive to follow that you are going to get all your macro and micro nutrients covered, except for B12. Everyone on a vegetarian, vegan or plant based diet should supplement with B12.

    The page is abundant with science based information on what is the healthiest diet, and I’d encourage everyone to spend some time on watching a few videos on any topic that might be of interest.

    Thanks. That’s a great summary with very good points that I wouldn’t have thought of!
