8/18/2016 – Diets


Welcome to Five Course Trivia! Five days a week, we’ll post five questions about something from the culinary world, from soup to nuts and all dishes in between.

One of the suggestions I got a long time ago on the LL forums for an entry on FCT was a post about diets, so I figured today was finally the day. I was inspired to do one in early January, but my enthusiasm waned until now. Good luck!

1. Let’s say I’m a 5’9″ male at about 200 pounds. Of the values 10, 30, 50, or 100, which of these is roughly the number of Weight Watchers points I’m allowed each day?

2. The image below is the first image that appeared on Google when I searched for what diet regimen, which has gained in popularity in the last few years?

Question 2

3. What’s the basic definition of someone with a pescetarian diet?

4. Name the man seen here, known for his low-carb diet that peaked in popularity in 2003/2004.

Question 4

5. One of the biggest criticisms of the paleo diet is that thanks to artificial selection, not all foods that we eat today were around in the paleolithic era. A great example is what vegetable, whose best known variety is the Calabrese type, and is a word that precedes “raab” or “rabe” in the name of another cultivated veggie.

6. Oh, and the best thing I learned while reading the Wikipedia page “List of diets”: If you are on the “grue diet”, meaning that you are enjoying a product known as “nutraloaf”, you are in what exact situation?

Tomorrow: Looking at the questions used at the LLRC in Vegas this last weekend, I’ll ask some questions about beer slogans.


1. 30
2. Juice cleanse / juice fast
3. Diet that includes seafood and fish, but not other animals
4. Robert Atkins
5. Broccoli
6. You’re an inmate in prison who isn’t allowed to use cutlery
