  • I'm having a really hard time restraining myself on Facebook today. I've got one friend making "healthier" cupcakes with "just four ingredients!" One of them is boxed cake mix. Boxed cake mix has a minimum of 20 ingredients. Doh. Another of the ingredients is sugar-free pudding mix.

    Another friend is starting some sort of shake program where you replace two meals a day with these special shakes that are made to taste like various desserts.

    Yet another friend is being persuaded to try a juice diet because she's always, always sick.

    Then my husband's aunt keeps posting about how Advocare can "change your life!"

    I will never understand why people will try absolutely every gimmick on the planet, yet say they could never give up bread. Really? You're going to choke down pretend food shakes all day, but you can't bear to eat a real food diet? It boggles the mind.

    • Commercial today from cornsugar.com or something like that. Dad has daughter on his shoulders talking about how he was concerned for her health so he did all kinds of research to see if sugar was really so bad after all...turns out the body can't tell the difference between HFCS and honey or maple syrup so by all means lets go all out with the HFCS.

        Went here: 24-Day Challenge Bundle

        183 bucks to "jump start" your weight loss. One of the products: http://www.advocare.com/products/images/pdf/T1251.pdf

        Ok, yes, it has vitamins, along with lots of other stuff meant to kill you. Sucralose??? really???

        I know people pushing this. I have a friend who's an Herbalife distribtor. She lost so much hair she was freaking out, even though she was really lean. Her doctor told her to eat more fats!!! She said Biotin had helped her stop losing all the hair!

        She's been all about this god fats and bad fats thing. Her doctor told her to eat more eggs!!! Well of course!, egg yolks have biotin! She's a wreck, but doesn't want to hear from me. ( still weight too much)

        All this and Herbalife stuff is FULL of soy protein isolates... even their "whey protein" has soy in it.

        geesh.

          This is one of the best quotes I've ever seen. Hell, you don't even have to give it up completely. You can make some mean rolls with tapioca starch and rice pasta works just fine. Just get rid of the gluten. If you're that much of an artisan, you can sprout and ferment your own wheat berries, dehydrate them, grind them up into flour with a food mill and actually have detoxified wheat, so there's even ways around that! People are unbelievable.
          Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.

          • This cowork last week told me about how she was struggling to lose weight. I'm on a new job, so she had no idea about my own experience and I told her with out much elaboration and showed her my Driver's License picture when she expressed skepticism. All this was in the context of declining an invite to a meal without anything I would eat. The only thing I was specific about was not eating sugar. Earlier this week, before a meeting, she got up and and asked me, "Would you like a Fiber One Brownie? Its only 90 calories!" I politely declined... I wanted to say, "How is that working out for you?" She is a very nice person was sincerely trying to be nice, so I would never say it...

              I think the problem with that proposal and the American society is that everyone just wants a quick fix. It is SO much easier to drink premade shakes, down seemingly healthy pills, and eat bread that was prepackaged and premade than making your own shit from scratch.

                There seems to be increased awareness of this risk for pregnant women in particular lately. Apparently kitty litter eating is pretty common. And some women have an attraction to used kitty litter -- my doc says there's something about the urea or something that makes it weirdly appealing.

                Combine that with the risks of toxoplasma during pregnancy, and I would bet a lot of OBs are asking, "Do you have a cat?" these days.

                HEH. Hilarious (sad, but hilarious.) I wonder if she even understands what the phrase "controlled for" means, scientifically.

                • CW moment when my dad Complained he was going to gain 10 pounds on a cruise.

                  I told him I could lose 10 pounds on a 2 week long cruise and challenged him to try it.

                  Didn't want to hear it.

                  Told him anyway. Said it was bologna.

                  I'm now itching to eat on a SAD cruise until I was full every day and lose weight doing PB stuffs.

                      As CT369 says, this is classic! +1,000

                      A (single-and-wants-to-stay-so) co-worker of mine recently moved and was lamenting about how her new place has no food or staples in it and said "I wish someone would just make me out a grocery list, then go shopping for me because I always seem to get stuck on the same old easy-fix things".
                      I tried to direct her to the PB shopping list(s) because she is trying -- a little bit -- to mend her SAD ways. I even told her I'd go shopping with her and help read labels... "oh no, I couldn't do that! I'd end up buying all kinds of things I that'll just go bad 'cause I can't take the time to fix them".

                      This is the lady who asked to shift her starting time from 8am to 9am just so she could have one more hour for her morning ablutions (which include only coffee and a toaster waffle, time for bible reading and prayer, and 2.5 hours for showering then primping hair, makeup and clothes) and comes in 10 - 15 minutes late even then!! It only takes a couple more minutes to fry a couple of eggs and bacon can (gasp) be cooked in the nuker. Bring along some of those fresh veggies or even a squash and we'll steamer-bag cook it here! Learn to use a crock pot to cook big batches and your freezer to preserve individual portions!!

                      .....and it's time for Catty to practice what she's preachin'!!

                      • 2.5 hours for shower and primping? WHAT THE HOLY HELL? Everyone gets annoyed at me, because it takes an hour from wake up to me running out the door. Why doesn't she just eat up earlier if she has to take so much time? That's ridiculous to ask to come into work later.

                        • I'm an hour too, from hopping out of bed to running out the door (including the shower). And I've got long hair and always wear makeup.

                            • People keep apologizing for eating SAD around me at work lunch. I keep telling them it's their body and I don't care what they do to themselves. They don't believe me.

                              • What really ticks me off is she then wonders why I'm leaving at 4:30 because I got there at 7:45 and took a 45 minutes lunch -- "but you're supposed to be here til 5!" It'd be different if all that primping made a huge difference, but I've seen her without makeup, etc. and she looks about the same.
                                Since she's very religious (which I don't hold against her at all) and says she's not out to impress anyone, I just don't understand her having to have only the best, most expensive makeup and clothes (which are always plain-ish and same-ish) and gets her hair cut every 2-3 weeks...sigh. Seems pretty prideful for a dutiful Child of God.

                                I just wish she'd TRY Primal for a week or two and stop listening to our other co-worker that follows CW with an almost equal religious fervor!
