A thesis statement is the thing that the author is trying to prove. It is usually found in the first paragraph of a paper or essay. This is the case with the article you referenced above. Here the author clearly states, "my purpose here is to...answer a series of key questions about adult human nutrition." The author goes on to outline several such questions. The easiest place to find support for the author's thesis is in the "controversial questions answered" section of the article. Here the author goes back to those initial questions alluded to in the thesis statement. The author also claims that pseudoscience attempts to answer many of these questions. You can find supporting details about these pseudoscience answers in the "what do we know" section of the article.
