  • I have a friend that refuses to even try Primal/Paleo b/c she's fat phobic (I'm convinced). She says fat gives her an upset stomach. Whaa-? *confused*
    I've never gotten an upset stomach from fat. Excessive grease, yes. Fat, no.
    So let me get this straight... she gets nausea every time she eats eggs, avocado, coconut, or dairy? Hmm...

    • So every Friday at my office there is one guy who, without fail, always buys donuts for everyone. This morning before he arrived, we had a vender come by and he dropped of some catalogs... and a giant bag of bagels with some kind of low-fat smear.

      So my co-worker shows up about 20 minutes later, two boxes of donuts under each arm. He spots the bagels and makes a comment about how "we have a healthy option for breakfast today" to go along with his donuts.

      • My mother asked my previous family physician (who I grew up going to) about my Paleo diet to see if it really works and what he thinks.

        He said that it is "legit" and as long as I get all the nutrients I need I should be fine. However, most people that try this diet tend to quit after a year and they gain all of the weight they lost back.

        [sarcasm] Oh really?! [/sarcasm]

        My Mom delivered this news with puppy chow (one of my favorite treats growing up) on one of her visits. Thanks Mom. *face-palm*

        I'll leave it at that, there are just too many mommie dearest stories in stock.

          • Oh sorry, it's a common thing here in the Midwest. It's actually funny to read that if you are unfamiliar with the "treat."

            Puppy chow is:

            crispy rice cereal squares
            peanut butter
            chocolate chips
            cups confectioners' sugar

            Combined to look like this:

                  It could be that her gallbladder isnt functioning right, from years of not eating enough animal fats. The gallbladder stores and dumps digestive enzymes needed to digest animal fats. If those enzymes arent being released, or not enough of them are, that might cause nausea and digestive troubles.

                  Wait he considered the donuts to be BREAKFAST?

                  • I used to love puppy chow.

                    Conversation while my In-Laws were visiting in July.

                    Me: I'm having eggs for breakfast, would you like some? (Third time in as many days)
                    Mom: Your Father in law and I don't eat eggs but maybe once a week because of the cholesterol.
                    Me: Ok

                    Sooo un-said to my In-Laws: You will eat high sugar, no fat and low fat junk that LOOKs healthy and avoid the eggs that are so fresh that they are often still warm from the chicken's butt, the chickens that are in the back yard eating grass, bugs, and leftovers???

                    Oh and cholesterol, ... don't get me started.

                    My girls lay the best eggs.

                    :facepalm:

                    I swear one day, I will eat bacon again. If I only find the best kind, that is since the hormones and junk in commercial pork kills me.

                      • In my daughter's 8th grade "health and nutrition" cooking class, they made that crap. I wasn't primal yet then but was still bitching about it. I'ts just another treat recipe - I don't think they ever made a healthy thing in that class even by CW standards. They said most kids wouldn't eat a healthier option. Right, so we teach them to make/eat crap?

                            Seriously - every. friday. at my office. Usually a giant Panera bagel spread - box-o-bagels, spread, raisin bread, pastry ring, etc. I work for clinical cancer researchers. How's that for irony? The conversations I overhear about food make me want to bang my head against my desk to make it stop. Just FYI: lean cuisine, diet coke and pretzels are not real food.
