  • I love how people pull out the word 'metabolism' like it is some mysterious force that makes you thinner.




    If they believe calories in=calories out, why would they worry about how fast food is processed?

      My mother...greatest CW dieter in the world!

      DH and I had lunch with her at that same Serious Texas Barbecue yesterday. She was amazed that I put away a half pound of turkey and DH did the same with the pulled pork (sadly, sweetie son wasn't there to give me his burnt brisket ends ) while she had a smallish sandwich. "Isn't that a lot of calories? And aren't you gonna have some bread with that?"

      "Mo-om! You've known for months that we don't do grains and it isn't just the quantity of the calories, it's the quality"

      "One little slice of their white bread isn't gonna hurt you...and it'll fill you up with less meat, which would be cheaper since the bread is free" (takes sip of iced tea w/ Splenda)

      Face, meet my friend Palm.

        I think she just didn't want to be alone in eating that stuff. People always feel better when they have allies in things- she probably knows your way of eating is better than hers deep down inside. And your comment "Face, meet my friend Palm" made me laugh- love it.

        • On another forum (one that's all about losing weight, which we all know isn't the same thing about getting healthy), someone proudly announced that s/he was "100% carb free" but still ate "fruits and vegetables."

          Repeat after me: 100% grain free =/= 100% carb free...

          (But hey, at least the person is grain free!)

            Our hospital actually has a food service awesome enough that people come to the hospital to eat! And not expensive either. I got a seared tuna steak salad a while back for 8 bucks. All good stuff! (you can of course also buy a big ass fountain drink a bag of chips, etc but at least there is also real food there!

            • Quote from a friend's FB page "am making pear and apple puree for M to have on his toast tomorrow as he's turning into a butter fiend and already heading for a cholesterol problem!".

              So wrong in so many ways but I have gone back and forth trying to think of something to say about it and just can't think of a way to do it without offending/sounding like an idiot! So am not going to bother, but it makes me so sad. The baby is only 6 months old and he knows better what is good for him but isn't going to be allowed to eat it! :-( Thank goodness I have learned better and my kids get to eat as much butter as they like (off the spoon/with their fingers if they want) whenever they want!!

                    True.. when my mom was in the hospital (I was pregnant at the time) I did not mind eating at the hospital.. they had an omlette station, a stir fry station and great food like tuna off the grill.

                    • From the examples I've seen hospital cafeteria food is supposedly fine. It's what they make you eat in bed that's not.

                      • I was asked what side I wanted with my burger (no bun) today so I said I would like bacon, she said "you want bacon on it?" So I said sure, or on the side either way...so she said "oh, I can't do that, you can get fries, onion rings, or coleslaw". I said "fries I guess", then she asked if I still wanted bacon on the burger so I said sure.

                        I got my receipt and she charged a whopping $.50 for the side of bacon and a side of fries costs $2.00.

                        Why can't establishments pull their head out of their asses and make the substitutions you want as long as it's a less expensive substitution. So I threw away $2.00 worth of product that they could've sold to somebody else and they got $.50 out of me for the bacon....net -$1.50 for the restaurant.

                        • It's like asking for your burger with no bun... it is easier to just order it normal and toss the bun instead of short circuiting the brain of the teenager behind the counter.

                            • I order "no bun" because that way, half the time the waiter reminds ME that I don't want croutons on my salad either. Otherwise I end up picking them off and it's not pretty.
