I figured since we're in the private beta stage, that we can use some more 'refining' of what's good and bad for this site. I suggest placing questions and/or answers that are of high quality as 'answers' to this question. Users can then up-vote or down-vote as they agree or disagree.
Note: Please DO NOT place your own questions or answers in here. This is not meant to be a promotion of your question, but rather a place to learn from other's success's. I personally will seriously consider down-voting a self promoted question/answer.
Ivo Flipse's answer to "What should I look for in a running shoe" is a perfect example of well documented answer that is beneficial to the general public:
Here's an excerpt:
So how do I know which one I need?
Well one easy way of determining this is looking back at your history:
You never had anti-pronation shoes and didn't sustain any injuries? --> Get neutral shoes
Do you run a lot and for long distances? Neutral shoes
You're not overweight? --> Neutral shoes unless move point 3 applies. If not, more stable shoes
Did you ever have any injuries that are linked to pronation? Get more stable shoes.
If you're overweight and you have a history of pronation-related injuries then yes, probably you need the heaviest kind of support you can get. In most other cases, the neutral shoe is of such decent quality that you don't need anything else.
Only one upvote at the time of writing, but I really do think detailed answers with original content like that one will ultimately be the difference between this being a mediocre site and a serious resource for professionals, enthusiasts and the general public alike.
The diet I'm including in my answer is safe, but has a marginally higher daily calorie intake. It originated with a Dr. Tran in France about 30 years ago, made it to Canada, and about two years ago was approved by the FDA for the USA. It's typically administered by doctor's offices or health clinics.
Ideal Protein Diet
It operates on the basic principle that the modern diet typically has far too much sugar and other insulin inducing chemicals. As a result, our pancreas gets overworked and produces too much insulin (trapping the calories as fat and making you hungry again). The diet consists of four phases:
Phase 1: let the pancreas rest and lose weight. (80-90% of weight loss goal)
Phase 2: get the stomach used to digesting more whole proteins (remainder of weight loss goal)
