We eat a lot of ultra-processed food, and these foods tend to be sugary and not so great for us. But the problem isn't necessarily the fact that they're ultra-processed. This is a weird and arguably unfair way to categorise foods, so let's take a look at what "ultra-processed" really means.

We don't often discuss the mental impact of restrictive diets such as Whole30 (no "inflammatory" foods), keto (low carb, high fat) or paleo (foods supposedly eaten during the Palaeolithic era). People like to tout the weight loss and mood-boosting effects of these diets, but experts say they can push some of us toward disordered eating.

Dear Lifehacker, My friend keeps telling me to stop drinking fruit juice because "it's basically just sugar". She also claims it's just as bad as Coca-Cola. I've done some online research but can't find a definitive answer on this. Surely juice is healthier than sugary colas? Or do I really need to quit?

My oldest child will only eat one vegetable: carrots. (It used to be broccoli, but he's switched.) His little brother will only eat corn. Since veggies are good for kids, it would be great if we knew some foolproof way of getting kids to eat them. Science doesn't have solid answers, but it does give us some clues.

Coconuts have been a valued food in tropical areas for thousands of years, traditionally enjoyed as coconut water from the centre of the coconut, coconut flesh, or coconut “milk” (made by steeping the flesh in hot water).

But are the touted health benefits of "coconut oil" all they're really cracked up to be? Or is it just another fad? Here are five claims you shouldn't believe.

Do you hate vegetables? You’re not alone. About 20% of the population are “super-tasters”. Super-tasters have more taste buds than other people and are super sensitive to the bitter compounds found in some food and drinks, even at low concentrations. If you have inherited super-taster genes then cruciferous vegetables (flower vegetables in the cabbage family) like bok choy, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, radish, swede, turnip, and watercress will taste disgusting.
