  • Taiwanese friend is eating some white globby thing from a container that says "pork." I ask to see the container to look at the ingredients. Soy flour is near the top of the list, along with other garbage that I forget. She says, "I have lots. I'll bring you some next time." I say, "Thanks, but it's got soy in it and I don't eat soy." She vehemently denies that there is soy in it. She points to the ingredients list and says, "Soy flour," as though it had nothing at all to do with soy. I said, "Soy flour, made from soy." She understood.

    • I had the same thing when I went grocery shopping with The Boyfriend. He's not primal, but I still look at what he buys in case it actually is something good I might like.

      Last week's "Seriously???" item was a frozen broccoli beef meal. Now broccoli beef is pretty easy to make, but whatever. The "beef" in this one was actually called:

      "Cooked Seasoned Beef Pectoral and Modified Food Starch Product"

      and contained more than 20 ingredients. I truly lost count about halfway through. And that's just the supposedly "beef" part of the dinner!

        I forget which comedian said it but this makes me think of a bit that goes something like, "No one ever tried to make a steak look and taste like tofu."

          Turns out the non-Primal Coffee-Mate loving boyfriend had discovered the joy of using heavy cream instead. Now he's hooked.

So I am there trying to get a lid for my cup while this woman has parked herself by the flavored coffee mate (by the lids of course). So as I work on my coffee I notice she adds coffee mate, stir, taste, coffee mate stir taste. She makes a comment that it has to taste just right and asks if I need cream. I said nah, there is no real cream so no thanks. She says but its coffee mate! I reply, but it full of chemicals!

            Headed to the local grocery store (not any bigger than the convenience store) for some real cream.
            Now, why is it when I read something like this, my mind immediately shows me a picture of an overweight person?
            Oh, right, because two-thirds of america is overweight due to their diligent following of a CW diet.

              Overweight? I was thinking super-obese-needs-a-scooter-to-get-around. I mean what was she parking?
              In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.

                  • +100! I have a 4 lb. Pom who would strip that like a school of piranhas.

                    • I can't find the post now but you mentioned having lots of meat in the car for the dog so I assumed you were another PMR feeder.
                      I'm amazed by that picture, I got a similar sized dog, she would love that bone haha
                      When she was 12 weeks I gave her a big pork leg bone, looked funny

                      • Not really a CW moment, but...

                        On Friday, a co-worker from a different department asked me if I was getting shorter, too! She has been enthusiastic about my weight loss and is very supportive most of the time. She's not the brightest bulb in the pack, but I thought she was a little more intelligent than that!
                        Started 7/5/11 at 274 lbs
                        Now 214 -- that's 60 lbs!
                        Goal 160 lbs -- last time there was in junior high!

                          "pants on the ground" keeps going through my head LOL

                          Yeah for your success!!

                          • "Shorter"?? Man, I'd almost take that as an insult. Don't overweight people look less tall, due to the expanding width? Yeah, if someone said I was looking "shorter", I'd be insulted.

                            • Maybe she just takes "smaller" in general to mean ALL dimensions..... lol

                              It could be the 'pants on the ground' thing...or the fact that I seldom wear my rocker-bottom "toning" shoes anymore -- they added about an inch to my height! She's seen me without them often enough that she should know better, but as I said before, not the brightest!

                              • Hey I lost an inch as I lost weight so it's not that crazy. I attribute it to either swollen joints adding height or fat on the bottom of the feet.
                                Oh and I'm 6'4" and HATING IT! I loved being 6'5"!
