  • Someone I consider to be a mentor in just about everything recently had to change her diet pretty drastically because of GERD. She's essentially doing a low fat Paleo, by her own trial and error. I applaud her for making it that far on her own and turning away from doc advice that much.
    This woman does not have the pounds to lose, she was already too thin. I've tried, repeatedly, to tell her to introduce more fat, in whatever forms she can have of it, or she'll waste away to nothing from sheer lack of calories. She refuses to hear me. "The docs say that fat is bad for GERD, and fat makes you get fatter." I've tried reason, science, and logic (you'd think a fellow engineer would see those.) It's to the point now where I just leave her alone about it, and hope she sees it on her own, esp seeing my primal success.
    I love this woman. She has stood in for my mother many times when I didn't trust my own. She has been my own Yoda at times. I watched her journey on the health road, and watched the docs screw her over time and again, only to go "Nope, that's not it, let's try ths." I can see her making health mistakes I made on a similar path, and I can see her being just as stubborn as I was. She'll get true Paleo eventually, but she'll suffer to get there. It's heart breaking.
    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

          Oh.

          Ouch.

          Stop using butter; substitute marshmallow creme instead?

          At least the commenters have some sense.

          Ow, my head.

              Oh man, the comments section is like some beautiful, enchanted otherworld, though. Never in my life would I have expected so many wonderful, and CORRECT comments on a mainstream website. It almost brings a tear to my eye. <3 Is this a vision of the future?

                        It's really the mouseover text that nails it for me, though.

                        • Yep. Almost makes me wonder if he's gone primal or paleo.

                            His wife has been dealing with breast cancer, so its possible hes stumbled across some nutrition stuff that leads him this-a-way. But I can also testify that there are a lot of hardcore nerds (here in Silicon Valley at least) who wear vibrams because they simply like being weird and different but are in no other way paleo/primal (for example, they eat crap and stay up all night coding, and think that the fact that theyre skinny means theyre healthy), so its possible hes been exposed to them through this crowd.

                            • Yeah, but I was referring to the mouse over comment. Prob wishful thinking on my end.
                              My CW moment today is more of a helicopter parent moment. I was at a playground with my niece a few nights ago, watching her while I swung on a swing. A little kid started climbing onto the swing next to me. I stopped swinging and turned to help him out and offer him a push (his legs didn't quite reach the ground.) His mom (I'm assuming) came sprinting across the playground and scooped him out of the swing. "Why were you on the swing? I've told you, you could fall out of the swing and crack your skull or someone could take you." (Mind you, this is a semi modern one with the soft rubber padding for ground, not gravel.)
                              She turned to me, probably to chew me out, and I smiled and said "I fell out of several swings myself growing up. Worst that happened is I gave myself a bruise."
                              "Yes, but little Juvie is special and shouldn't get bruises or cuts."
                              "Oh, he has a clotting disorder. I'm sorry. I had no idea. I'll watch out for him then."
                              "No, he doesn't. He's a little kid, Little kids shouldn't get bruises or cuts ever."
                              Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"
