Abstract

A tendency in the optimal diet literature has been for researchers to test the predictions of a single model without regard to alternative models. When incongruencies between observed and predicted arise, post-hoc explanations are formulated. Studies should be aimed at examining results in comparison to alternative existing models with an eye toward improving these models and building new more robust models. -from Author
