A Quick Update on Mat Lalonde’s Research on Nutrient Density

Well, I posted a video of Mat Lalonde’s presentation on Nutrient Density (AHS 12) just the other day. I originally intended to follow up with a copy of his research (with permission). When I asked for the data, however, Mat surprised me with this response:

I put the data through a stress test and found some inconsistencies. It turns out that there was too much variance in the data to use a standardization method. As such, I completely revamped my approach and divided the nutrient data by the RDA in order to make the values unitless and bring them within similar orders of magnitude. I’m now working on getting the data published and cannot share the spreadsheet until this is done.

Nutrient Density: Sticking To The Essentials – Mathieu Lalonde (AHS12)

I’ve been a big fan of Mathieu Lalonde ever since I saw his Science of Nutrition lecture. Seriously, if you can buy a copy or attend one of these all day affairs, you’re going to come out with a lot of knowledge you didn’t have when you walked in.

So it was with great anticipation that I’ve been awaiting his Ancestral Health Symposium (AHS) 2012 presentation: Nutrient Density: Sticking to the Essentials. Well, it’s finally out, and as with most things Matt Lalonde, it’s well worth watching.
