    Oi, I thought. There isn't a single meal in there that doesn't contain a processed food (with "Tofurky" being the worst of them) (seriously, Tofurky is tofuckin' awful -- at least Field Roast was edible!).

    The popular wisdom that "if it's vegetarian, it's healthy" drives me nutso.
    Wow, you really should tell her how amazingly processed just plain tofu is. I believe I read somewhere that they use hexanes (which are carcinogenic) to wash the soymeal during one of the stages.

      Friends of the family adopted a baby and (due to the lack of lactation) needed to feed him formula. They made up for it by feeding him lots of steak though. Seriously, that kid loves meat (or at least he did last time I saw him).
      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.

I went and got my coffee and couldn't help but watch the people grabbing the coupons enthusiastically (as I would have three years ago). The space in front of the big pastry display was like piranhas going after fresh kill.
        Quick trip?? LOL

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.
          YES, the girl who's a carbivore is so freaking thin and I'm a bit pudgy from my post-athletic days =P It does not help the "heavy weights make you LEAN" image that I lift often, but have a lot of extra fat to spare -.-

              Haha! I have a primal baby and I can assure you that her poo is as room-clearingly noxious now as it was when she ate grains. Primal made no difference - poo just smells bad!

              • From one of my "childbearing year" herbal resource books. The "low blood sugar, frequent snacking" thing is common advice for morning sickness, but my favorite bit is the example snacks:

                * There is a strong connection between nausea in early pregnancy and low blood sugar. Maintain your blood sugar level by eating small meals frequently (even every few hours) and by eating a protein-rich snack, such as popcorn with nutritional yeast, or brown rice with miso, or bread and tahini before going to sleep.

                  There is not enough plaster in the world to repair the amount of headdesk/headwall/headwhatever that would occur if I read that book. So much fail in one little quote!

                    "I lost 105 pounds with Slimgenics, and so can you! Call now and mention this add and get a $50 off coupon!"

                    Now...Slimgenics may be a great program (I wouldn't know, never investigated), but wouldn't FREE beat something that is so freakin' expensive that they're offering fifty bucks off????

                    Goal 160 lbs -- last time there was in junior high!

                      I don't get this. I mean, there are indigenous people who chew coca leaves in the Andes. From what I understand, doing so allows them to work at altitude for longer and harder. Something about getting more oxygen into the bloodstream. I'd totally chew some coca leaves when hiking if I could.

                      • At work today the receptionist says she tries to eat healthy - as she opens a can of coke and heats a microwave pizza......sigh.
                        Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

                          Grrr! More and more, I get so fed up with people who baldly state that they are "trying" to do the right thing while blatantly do the exact opposite!
                          I've tried to nudge, push and shove friends and loved ones in the right direction, but am drowned out by seemingly universal factors that I call the 3-C's: Convenience, CW and Cash.

                            Yep! Two weeks ago after a day of biking with a small group it was decided we needed nourishment (of course), so we went to East Side Mario's. I, of course, had the steak (medium rare) and veggies, but everyone else ordered some version or another of grain--pasta, pizza, etc. One of them mentioned about wanting to eat low carb. I stared at him, stared at the fourth chunk of bread he was currently slathering with butter (one point for him, only one) and said, "and what are you eating?" He shrugged looking only a tiny bit chagrined, and took a bite. I dug into my steak, fat and all. Note to self: ask server to ask kitchen to crisp up the fat.

                              I might mentioned something, but most of the time, for the sake of my own sanity, I just shake my inner head and go about my own business.

                              • My SIL has put on about 100 lbs since I met her 9 years ago. She was recently told by a doctor that she is pushing diabetic if she doesn't lose some weight and she should try cutting out the sugar. I overheard her tell my MIL how hard it has been for her to cut sugar from her diet... headaches, grouchy, craving, etc. MIL recommended maybe just eating HALF of the sugar she's been eating... SIL says "How can I throw away HALF of a candy bar? That's such a waste of money!"

                                *face palm*

                                Uh, here's a money saver... don't buy the damn candy bars.
                                Also, she refuses to replace her 4-6 daily sodas with diet because of the "chemicals".

                                My hubby and I told her about the Primal Blueprint and how great we have been feeling and she said she "just cannot give up bread"... Almost too sad to be funny.
