The title of this work is worth discussion and research, perhaps with a conference for multidisciplinary professionals in mind.For an engineer or a physical scientist not trained in the biological sciences, it may come across as a statement that defies the definitions of science. The title may come through more as a marketing statement, to draw readers to the article. It may also cause confusion among the general population. That foods come in at least 5 broad categories, viz. fruits, vegetables, carbohydrates, proteins and fats, may give a hint that there is real substance in the statement. A mini literature review is made on the subject matter. A few deductions about venturing out of the recommendations by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) are made that could be useful for weight loss purposes.
