  • This isnt exactly food related but is still appropriate:

    So i now wear vibram five fingers almost exclusively. I currently have 3 different pairs (KSOs, Sprints, and a new pair of Jayas). I got my first pair of Sprints almost 3 years ago now, so I've been doing the VFF thing for quite a while. People ask me about them a lot and I usually give a short spiel explaining them. People are usually interested, amused, or politely skeptical.

    But just this afternoon, I was poking around in a store when a middle-aged woman asked if she could squeeze past me. I moved, and as she moved past she glanced down, saw my shoes, and exclaimed in surprise. I smiled politely. She muttered something about the toes being funny, but then peered closely at them, and exclaimed, "Arch support!" I blinked, and opened my mouth to reply, but before I could say a *single thing*, she started LECTURING ME about the importance of arch support, especially on hard floors and concrete. I finally got a word in edgewise, politely saying that the LACK of arch support helped my feet exercise more naturally and strengthen my arches. She muttered more things about arch support and walked away in a flustered huff.

      I wear mine almost all the time and I still have this conversation with family members:
      "Oh you've got toe shoes, are those comfortable?"
      "Yep" (still as comfortable as last time I saw you and you asked that)
      "I'm thinking about getting some"
      "You should" (get a pair and stop this Groundhog's Day bullsh*t)
      If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.

          I bet she was watching a podcast of Dr Oz at the same time.
          Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

            Weaker souls what live in dense urban areas For the first time in my life, I actually DID see a needle lying on the street in the Mission the other day. I got strangely excited, being all, "Oh hey! This is what people warn us about! It really happens! "

            I got strange looks.

              Groan. Sorry guys, I couldn't help it.

                      Speaking of junk, have you guys seen the new Crossfit-marketed Fitaid drink that they market is "Paleo-friendly"

                      I asked for their full nutritional label and also if their "blue agave" they sweeten it with is essentially agave nectar and what the fructose content was. No response.

                      • I love my father, I truly do. He's trying to lose weight and get healthy and such, for which I applaud him. I went to Dallas and stayed with them for a few days during a family event. Apparently, my father's knowledge of healthy stopped around the time I was born in '85. Low fat all the way, with minimal saturated fat. He knows that I do Primal, so he adapted some of it (butter and olive oil, no pasta, extra veggies.) It's good he's watching his health, and it's better that he knows he needs at least a little fat, but it still hurts to watch him take the bad path after he's seen the primal path work so well for me.
                        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!"

                        • Speaking of dads..

                          My dad just emailed me the other day saying he's bummed out because his weight loss has stalled. He's been doing Atkins. Which I guess is nice because we're on the same page w/r/t macronutrients. But he's also eating such wonderful things as: diet coke, Atkins-approved candy, chocolate soy milk, pre-cooked bacon, those cardboard boxes full of bargain burger patties, etc.

                          I realize that he has lost 30lbs, and this is a huge improvement from how he used to eat, if you can believe it.. But it is so hard to bite my tongue sometimes when all I want to do is scream "OF COURSE YOU STOPPED LOSING WEIGHT, YOU'RE STILL EATING POISON....."

                          • Ugh, I remember those stupid Atkins bars and drinking mass quantities of caffeine free diet Coke.

                            Now, even when I completely fall of the wagon and get run over by the wheels, I STILL won't eat that crap.

                            Not at all what Dr Atkins had in mind back in the day.

                              For sure. The poor man must be spinning in his grave.

                              • naidaknight--I know exactly what you mean: my 77 year-old mother (who has actually been active and is in pretty good shape) still adheres to the 80s ideal of low or no-fat, lots and lots of fiber, etc. I would never try and supervise what she eats, but I know if we lived closer it would be a struggle to get her to see a different WOE.
