Suggestions for one or two good comprehensive threads on nutrition and eating well. Blue or Green, but something comprehensive to recommend to someone that kind of covers the current thinking about diet, diet related to health and well being, and eating well.

Over the years, good or bad, I've realized a lot of the information I've learned about eating well (or at least knowing that I should be eating better) have come from reading metafilter and linked articles. But it's from reading many many threads. Are there one or two threads that stand out as really comprehensive? Maybe one that covers the multitude of current thinking, from calories in, calories out vs cutting out carbs, vs various other diet trends like the paleo diet, etc . . . why weight isn't the end all be all (the prevalence of skinny fat, weight around the middle, etc . . .), why specific food stuffs are important (fiber, protein, veggies, etc . . .)?
Some of the best threads I've seen have been those debating the different view points on the blue, but I haven't been able to pinpoint a single one that covers it all. I realize it's a tall order for a diverse topic, but hoping there is a megathread that zigged and zagged all over. Your recommendation for one that comes closest would be most appreciated.
