    No, I didn't read your post about your friend. So what? What's your point? That a doctor told him to eat more salt, so sometimes 'bad' things are actually 'good' for you? Is that the point your trying to make?

    There are some donuts in the cupboard. I feel like a donut but it is bedtime and I don't eat carbs at night most of the time. But you guys keep reminding of the donuts.

    He was talking about the original post you cut up, which said the donuts were specifically prescribed to counteract an insanely high metabolism. You completely overlooked that in your armchair diagnosis, to cut down the doctor -- pretty bold, considering you have no idea of the patient's medical history and immediately just called the doctor a quack. (I usually prefer to get more info before insisting that a specialist in an area I'm not, dealing with a specific situation I'm not, is a total moron.)

    I had a vegan double chocolate donut yesterday. It was delicious.

    He/she made a statement, I responded with an opinion. This is the internet. If you want a legally rigorous level of proof for everything, go to the courts. I can't imagine that there is a circumstance where prescribing donuts for better health would exist. I may be wrong, but it sounds like total quackery to me.

    What do you recommend for high calorie diets, Dr. Internet?

    Lol... still belligerent?

    I said it was silly to criticize someone's professional skill over a case you didn't read the details of, in a topic you don't have nearly the same amount of knowledge or experience.

    Did I demand proof of anything, let alone "rigorous"? No, I just said, "Be a little more reasonable" if you want to be taken seriously. That's all.

    I was never belligerent. I stated an opinion, as I said. It was and is a questionable statement from a doctor. That is a 'reasonable' conclusion. Doctors aren't required to learn much about nitrition in medical school. Were you aware of that? I think it's reasonable to question this 'prescription' on that basis. But it's none of my business. the guy can do whatever he wants to.
    Thanks for the advice. I'll weigh it more heavily since you're a former mod.
