      • To the turkey haters: try making a goose for Thanksgiving. It will blow your minds.

        To stay somewhat on-topic, commercial turkeys are horrifying. My family has had goose for Thanksgiving all my life, so I had never even seen a whole turkey until two years ago when I went to my boyfriend's family's Thanksgiving. The thing just looked so wrong to me - how in the hell could a bird support a breast like that?! It was like a poultry Pamela Anderson.

            QFf*nT!

            Mmm... yams roasted in leftover goose fat...

            CW moment for the day--I read all kinds of weird stuff, thanks to Project Gutenberg. The other day I picked up a set of old reference books, several of which are "how to do everything" sort of books. And when they said "everything" in the mid-late 1800's, they meant "everything".* One has a recipe for "oleomargarine", which is truly horrifying.

            Oleomargarine is a sweet, pure, clean food product made from rich cream and edible fats. It contains every element of nutrition found in the best creamery butter.
            And then it goes on to tell you how to make oleomargarine. Whether or not this could actually be accomplished at home I'm not sure because the pressure needed is pretty great, but the recipe is there!

            *want to know how to make pen ink? Plate silver? Cure a horse of the glanders? Make your fence posts last forever? These books are fabulous!

              co-worker: wow! How much weight have you lost
              me: *smile* Well enough I am in smaller jeans (I am not ready to give a number)
              co-worker: I can tell!! So, what are you doing? Just watching what you are eating? or is it a certain diet?
              me: oh, I suppose you could call it watching what I eat. I eat meat, veggies and a little fruit. No grains, beans, very little dairy but more fat and protein.
              co-worker: you mean no bread??!!!!! I could never do that! (what is this hold bread has over folks??!!)
              me: yeah well, increase the fat, increase the protein and you achieve weight loss. This is a new body by fat.
              co-worker: *dumb look*

                    Yeah, it's weird that most people immediately get incredulous about no bread.
                    I didn't even eat that much bread before PB. It's really scary how much bread SAD includes o.o

                    • Co-worker being 'nice' when our drug-rep lunch got canceled due to weather the other day:
                      Her: (looking in her drawer 'stash') Well...I've got crackers, which I know you can't eat. I have a couple cans of soup! Do you want Beef Barley or Chicken Noodle?
                      Me" Those still have grains in them. Thanks, but I'll just pass and eat when I get home.
                      Her: But you won't be able to concentrate if you're hungry this afternoon!
                      Me: I'm not really hungry and I had a good breakfast.
                      Her: But you HAVE to have some lunch!

                      This is after 3.5 years of working with me, and in the last 5 months -- seeing that I sometimes fore-go lunch, have lost over 50 pounds, and am the most productive I've been in the entire time I've been there -- and have spoken extensively about "what I'm doing" to accomplish this!

                      *face -> now permanently dented spot on wall next to desk*
                      Started 7/5/11 at 274 lbs
                      Now 214 -- that's 60 lbs!
                      Goal 160 lbs -- last time there was in junior high!

                      • So what is it with people thinking you HAVE TO eat lunch? I was in the hospital and had scrambled eggs and bacon for breakfast as well as a couple of hard boiled eggs my hubby brought me. A couple of hours later the nurse wanted to know what I had ordered for lunch. "Nothing. I am not hungry." "You have to eat lunch!" "Why? I AM NOT HUNGRY." I finally got her to accept that I WAS NOT HUNGRY and told her I was fine with putting 'patient was offered lunch and refused it' in her chart.

                          Well...speaking personally, I used to get irritable and weird when I didn't eat lunch at the right time. If you think everyone is like you and needs their three squares, it's off-putting to meet someone who doesn't. Or who formerly did, and now doesn't.

                          I used to be starved by noon. Now I get to 2 PM and don't notice. I should actually add a post to the "frustrations" thread about this...as I frequently miss the lunch window (noon to 2) because I don't have the hunger signals to tell me to take a break from work.

                          • I have been PB for about 8 weeks now and have had plenty of conversations with others about “What are you doing, you look great”. At 63, I think I am looking good. Dropped from a 36 to a 33 inch waist in jeans. Building some muscle, better posture, energy out the whazoo, and living life large.

                            The best conversation was with my doctor’s nurse when I first started this journey. I was advised by a fellow cancer buddy, who is definitely PB, to request a series of blood tests before I began. This would give me a baseline so that I could see evidence of the changes PB could make in my life.

                            I called the docs office and was telling the nurse the tests I wanted to have run as I was embarking on a new lifestyle and way of living. She asked what diet I was going on. I told her it was not a diet, but a change in living in general. Every few minutes of the conversation she asked again for the name of the plan.

                            Finally, I told her it was something that I was sure she had never heard of, Primal Blueprint.

                            In kind of a hushed and lowered tone she said, “That’s great, my husband and I have been Primal for about 8 months and it’s fantastic.” She went on to tell me that she doesn’t talk about it much at the office unless she is asked directly. And she is asked often, because she too is looking and feeling great. She works at a large (and very recognizable) national cancer center and said that the CW crap she has to put up with when it is discussed is just not worth it.

                            It sure is a comfort to know that one of the folks on my medical team is a fellow Blueprinter.

                              Oh my goodness, that is really awesome! It's especially heartening when you find PB followers in the medical field.

                              • Just got sucked into an argument on Google+ trying to dis-theorize (cause you cant really disprove it) the "Nasty, Brutish, and Short" trope. Its going something like this:

                                Other people: our ancestors lives sucked because they were difficult and short
                                Me: Well, yes, but new ways of thinking are that their lives were pretty good UNTIL they were short; they were healthy and engaged by their environment
                                Other people: Yeah but there were violent deaths and stuff, and infections
                                Me: Im not denying that, they certainly died from infections a lot more, but im saying that doesnt mean that everything they did in their lives was wrong because of it.
                                Other people: Yeah, but, a sword to the gut is a really shitty way to die.
                                Me: ....yes, well a sword implies NEOLITHIC heritage, not PALEOLITHIC
                                Other people: Whats the difference?

                                This conversation is frustrating because one of these people is a medical student, and also because they are all fixated on the idea that Death = The #1 Worst Thing in Life and pure length of life is the best variable for the relative "goodness" of life. I argued back that I think a long life of slowly falling apart and rotting from the inside out, drooling in a wheelchair in the corner of some nursing home is the far more tragic life than getting gored to death on the plains by an aurochs. But no, apparantly, being old and a vegetable is better because you have a bigger number to chalk up to your legacy. Epeening, much?

                                tl;dr: SOMEONE IS WRONG ON THE INTERNET!!!!!!!!!!!
