Glycemic index ipad app?

I've looked on the iTunes store for a glycemic index iPad app and the five or six I looked through all got horrible reviews. Do you use a GI app, and if so, which do you like? Both paid and free are fine. I'd also be open to other food tracking apps if they are really great. It should be compatible with a low carb / paleo type diet. Thanks.

Is enteric-coated fish oil better utilized by the body?

Aside from preventing fishy burps, is there any significant nutritional advantage to taking enteric-coated fish oil supplements over their non-enteric coated counterpart? I’ve seen ads claim that the enteric coating helps to preserve the fish oil from stomach acid and bile until it reaches the small intestine - is there any scientific basis to this? Generally speaking, will the body utilize one better than the other?

Does your body go into starvation mode?

Nutrition filter: I have read a lot of articles about how if you consume less than 1200 calories your body goes into "starvation mode." I have read other articles that claim it is just a myth. Anyone have any sense of the truth of this? Thank for your help!

What would Einstein eat?

I once read that Einstein had several outfits exactly the same, so he didn't waste time figuring out what to wear. Has anyone done this with food; specifically, figuring out exactly what to eat over the course of a week to provide exactly the right amounts of all the proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins, etc. that the body needs? If so, is this menu available? [more inside]

What should I eat?

I'm 22, male, 184 centimeters (~6ft), 70kg (161 pounds), 11% body fat (as judged by one of those imprecise electrical gadgets), and, until recently, fairly sedentary. I'm now running three times a week and plan to start lifting weights another three days a week. For the past two weeks I've been assiduously tracking everything I eat with this software (note: I'm not at all interested in "caloric restriction") and a gram-precise food scale. I'm trying to become generally fit - increase cardiovascular endurance, gain muscle, start fencing again. With all that in mind, how do I decide on nutritional targets? [more inside]
