My guess is that minimizing use of recipes of any kind would be very effective for weight loss/maintenance. Pick one whole food, heat if necessary, add a low-calorie condiment if you like, and eat.

Agreed! Good observation and a very easy concept to explain.

Here's What You Need to Know About That Teen Who Went Blind From Eating Junk Food:
https://www.sciencealert.com/here-s-what-you-need-to-know-about-that-teen-who-went-blind-from-eating-junk-food

In our case study, published in Annals of Internal Medicine, we concluded that Jasper's junk food diet and limited intake of nutritional vitamins and minerals resulted in the onset of nutritional optic neuropathy – a dysfunction of the optic nerve, which is important for vision. It is a rare but serious complication of several types of nutritional deficiency.

Deficiencies of vitamin B1 (thiamine), vitamin B2 (riboflavin), vitamin B3 (niacin), vitamin B6 (pyridoxine), vitamin B9 (folate), vitamin B12 (cobalamin), iron, calcium, magnesium and copper are all known to cause optic neuropathy and are easily misdiagnosed as other disorders if the doctor doesn't have the patient's dietary history.
With the decline of food traditions and people learning to cook, I think we will see an increase in these kinds of cases in the future. I don't just mean knowledge of recipes and cooking techniques. Anyone can find a recipe and follow instructions, perhaps even watch a video. Any culture had a basic set of everyday meals that would be more or less adequate to keep people healthy. These varied hugely across societies, but each cobbled together through trial and error something that worked. Now we have so much choice. Education could be a substitute, but it's inefficient.

Another good reason to just eat whole real food and none of the processed junk.

Too much ultra-processed foods linked to lower heart health:
https://medicalxpress.com/news/2019-11-ultra-processed-foods-linked-heart-health.html

Researchers at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found that for every 5% increase in calories from ultra-processed foods a person ate, there was a corresponding decrease in overall cardiovascular health. Adults who ate approximately 70% of their calories from ultra-processed foods were half as likely to have "ideal" cardiovascular health, as defined by the American Heart Associations' Life's Simple 7®, compared with people who ate 40% or less of their calories from ultra-processed foods.

The good news is that 40% of calories from ultra-processed foods doesn't require Spartan strictness. I think that's within reach of anyone who cares at all about their health.

From the article:
Foods were categorized into groups by the extent and purpose of industrial processing they undergo. Ultra-processed foods are made entirely or mostly from substances extracted from foods, such as fats, starches, hydrogenated fats, added sugar, modified starch and other compounds and include cosmetic additives such as artificial flavors, colors or emulsifiers. Examples include soft drinks, packaged salty snacks, cookies, cakes, processed meats, chicken nuggets, powdered and packaged instant soups and many items often marketed as "convenience foods."
Pretty much all the crapola you already know to avoid.

We all interact with many people - some of them beloved friends and family - who will not adhere to The Primal Blueprint or anything similarly comprehensive. Being able to mention small, easy-to-implement changes that may make a significant impact on health outcomes is a huge win.

A high-sugar diet rapidly enhances susceptibility to colitis via depletion of luminal short-chain fatty acids in mice

two-day exposure to a high-sugar diet rapidly alters gut microbial composition, depletes short chain fatty acids" => loss of intestinal barrier function => increased s-levels of LPS & immune activation
