    "Die-it"... ha! Can't believe I never noticed that irony.

Anytime I tell anyone about how I started looking so good, and he's around, he tops my speech with, "Well, it obviously works for YOU but it's not good for everyone." And then he and the other person will discuss other "diets" he really knows nothing about because he's always been skinny (I call it "gaunt") and hasn't yet had any chronic health issues or had any reason to change his eating habits. Annoys the crap outta me. Now I just don't talk about it if he's around, which is hard because he's around a lot.
            I had a friend who was giving me the skeptic's look over a dinner where I ordered gluten-free pizza. Yes, yes, not really paleo, but I wanted pizza, and I didn't want to eat gluten. What swayed him (after he ate a slice of my pizza) was the Robb Wolf argument: "Have you tried it for 30 days?" He couldn't argue with that, so he DID try it, and he's now lost 20+ lbs and doing great. I just gave him some GF cookies and him, his wife, and my husband regularly get together to have paleo meals. True story.

            If you want to actually stomp on him verbally, than bone up on the science. I'm fairly well-read on the matter of diets, and I can more or less stomp on any argument if I choose to.

            But I usually don't choose to. Most people don't want to hear it, and if you start babbling about diets too much you sound no better than a fundie wanting to convert everyone to your cool thing.

            That said, if there's a discussion going on, and I'm hearing bullshit, I'll call the person on it. I don't sugarcoat (oh, wait, I'm primal -- I should say "honeycoat") and I tell them when I think something (like the "Blood Type Diet") is bunk. But I must reiterate: I don't do this unless I perceive someone actually wants to discuss it. And I don't always use that moment to talk about how awesome paleomal has been for me. I let my cholesterol results and body shape do that.

            And honestly, I think subversive is the way to go. Be the change blah blah blah. Alternately, take yummy photos of your food:
            But what do you eat? - a set on Flickr

            That's what that photo set is for. And it feeds into my Facebook status every time I update it....

              • My job had a bake sale to help diabetes research.

                I don't even know what to say to that. I donated 5 dollars and told them I didn't want anything. They tried to force me to take a few items. It was mostly baked bread, cookies, cupcakes, and cake.

                  Had an "Support your AHA sale." Nothing was heart healthy. Everything was wheat. I don't even want to donate money to the AHA in general.

                  Seriously. It's stupid.

                  • This morning was "free coffee and donuts" morning, which happens once a month in my work building (apparently so that everyone in the building can get to know each other). I bypassed the event, I'm not a great fan of donuts and eugh the sugar + following insulin spike

                        You have to love people selling products that increase the chances of getting the condition that they are trying to prevent or make you aware of. Just think about how dumb that is?

                          • I just posted this in one of the pregnancy support threads--I just found out I'm knocked up. In the last couple days I've had an absolute FLOOD of "no fatty foods! No salt! Eat soda crackers constantly!" I suspect I'm going to be doing a bunch of smiling and nodding for the next seven months ;0)

                              HAHAHA, this stuff is amazing to me. Smile and nod all the time. When your physician asks you how your diet is doing, just say you have this incredible urge to eat bacon. My wife trolls her doctor all the time like this.

                                A friend of mine just went through a pregnancy where she had practically every possible complication possible. She spent most of nine months nauseous in bed. The baby, steven, was born healthy and fine, which is a relief, but I felt so bad for her and knew that if only she was eating better it probably would have gone much smoother. :/
                                "Since going primal, I've found that there are very few problems that cannot be solved with butter and/or bacon fat."
