There are a lot of questions in the review queue that are marked with the nutrition off topic reason.
Questions on nutrition are off-topic unless they relate directly to exercise.
Some of those questions are not about nutrition, but on diet, although closely related, please note that our help center states:
and it is not about …
nutrition unrelated to exercise, such as food safety, nutritional needs for children, etc.
achieving physique milestones
is part of our on topic items.
I think that most questions on diet fall into this category, as weight loss is a way to achieve a specific physique.
I can see two ways to handle this problem:
- change the item to "achieving physique milestones using exercises"
- accept questions about weight loss, that are not overly specific.
Expanding on the second bullet point:
"How can I decrease my appetite to lose weight" would be on topic, it targets the personal goal of loosing weight, I think it is in our capabilities to answer such a question. "Does green tea helps losing weight?" would be off topic as a good answer needs to look at the nutritional aspects of the item in question, cite studies or something in that line.
This is a very borderline and grey area, but I think that we are closing too many questions that lie in our current sites scope.
