Pseudoscience is essentially opinion, not any form of science. Statements like "eat more fiber" have the hallmark of pseudoscience since it is made with ignorance of how much fiber I am currently eating. There is a optimum amount of any ingredient in any one persons diet. Without knowing how much, it is only opinion. 

Pseudoscience is often written to look like science. It may as well be published in the Onion. It is often nothing more than restatement of public held misconceptions. It is equivalent of stating the results showed something and withholding the data or filtering the data to remove all extraneous results. It like this editor I am using, it gives a choice of justification of the text, but regardless of the setting, everything is left justified. Henry Ford, you can have any color you want as long as you want black. 

So why am I on pseudoscience today?? and 

All less than true, or unbalanced. Caffeine is also an appetite stimulus for some of us, n=1 test anyway. WTF. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot.
