I just want to print this out and bring it with me:

    David Brown on Saturated Fat Phobia's Demise and the Omega-6 Hazard | Free The Animal

    Of course, my real hope is to bring a Halloween costume prop microphone that I have from last year with me, utter the words "why does the AHA still recommend replacing safe, healthy saturated fats with linoleic acid?" (Their guidelines literally recommend replacing butter with soft margarine in a tub). Then I'll drop the microphone and walk out of the room.

    And of course, I'd love to provide the following article on the salt issue: Shaking up the Salt Myth: The Human Need for Salt .

    Unfortunately, for the foreseeable future, I need the job and hope to continue to advance (at least in salary) before I can realize my entrepreneurial aspirations, so treading lightly is imperative. At least someone removed all the AHA flyers with their dietary recommendations from the lunchroom.

      • I work in physical therapy and we have a lot of older patients. We had one today who was an older lady who wouldn't stop talking about how healthy she eats...lots of egg whites and peanut butter on celery and whole grains...then she was talking about some special occasion where she made her homemade blueberry pie. I was polite and said that it sounded really good. Her response was, "It's the only time I eat cholesterol."

        • My husband and I went out for some ice cream as a splurge. While standing in line I heard a mother ask her daughter if she wanted M&M's and peanuts mixed in, her daughter saw chocolate chips and said she wanted that mixed in and mom said she didn't need chocolate chips and chocolate ice cream. What? Chocolate chips are worse in chocolate ice cream than M&M's mixed in? I just rolled my eyes at my husband.

          • dd had a friend spend the night. My kid is not primal and neither is her friend. They beg for "comforts", and I go ahead and make them (bad mom), anyway dd's friend says, ummm I notice every time you make these you never eat any. Why? I say, I don't eat grains. She says grains? I explain wheat, corn etc. She says but they are good for you. I reply with "why do they feed cows grain?" She says "to fatten them up". With a look that said enough said she got to thinking, then mentioned how they were bad for my tummy. So then she replies, yeah but they have 4 legs. I said, 4 legs?? Then they ought to working it off faster right? She was stumped, I was amused. LOL Yeah, ok.. she was 10 hahahahahah

I'll give her a break 'cause she's in high school, but... c'mon, what are they teaching kids these days!?
              My daughter is a freshman in high school. Her health teacher didn't have a clue what a frittata was or what quinoa was.
              I can understand her not knowing about quinoa, but a frittata, come on man.

              • Well maybe she knows it by another name, such as omelette or quiche. But she probably doesn't teach it since it's full of cholesterol laden eggs.

                • Did ay one else get a letter from their health insurance co (Anthem Blue Cross) stating they wanted to help you eat healthy? Included were coupons for highly processed diet food made with grains. There was one coupon good for fresh produce...but you had to purchase cereal to make the offer good.

                  • Hell, I don't remember where I saw it, but some insurer offered a free coupon for a Happy Meal if you got your kid vaccinated.

                    • Not so much funny as infuriating. I watched the latest episode of The Biggest Loser. For people here I'm guessing that'd be enough said, but some of my particularly favorite moments where:


                      ***Just incase, I guess I should say spoiler alert***


                      - One of the contestants was eating out with friends who were ordering burgers, fries, pizza, and quesadillas while he was having a salad, and he was talking about how this moment was the harest thing he'd ever done but that his friends aren't overweight so they can do whatever they want. Since I've really started paying attention to the existance of it, I'm really annoyed by this cultural attitude that skinny people are have a right to eat junkfood by the virtue of not being fat.
                      Plus, that eating for good health means less enjoyment. Oh and he added that at the ranch they 'never cook with grease' like all the food at the restaurant had. No mention of the fact that it was probably corn or soybean oil.

                      - After the public workout the show gifted everyone who attended Subway gift cards. I mean, yeah, I suppose it could be worse but I feel Subway is one of those places that has somewhat of a false 'health halo.'

                      - One contestant and one of the kids talked about how the obesity epidemic is an issue that's being ignored, and that people need to start talking to peoplein their life who have weight problems. In other words, the old shaming will get people to lose weight myth.

                      - At the public workouts all the talk it was about 'getting active', 'keeping moving', and 'working out'. No mention of play eventhough they had children as young as 3 participating.

                      I was somewhat of a Biggest Loser fan before, but PB has definitely changed my view point on it.

                      • Having Paleo/Primal called a "diet"... whilst I sat there eating TWO 150g burgers (made with butter and fatty mince, of course), two rashers of raw bacon, 100g of cheese and a banana. I'm restricting myself so much, poor me.

                            Id just buy some plain granola or unsugared cereal and put it in my birdfeeder ;D
                            "Since going primal, I've found that there are very few problems that cannot be solved with butter and/or bacon fat."

                            • I'm home sick (I thought Primal was going to make me invincible?!), and I've been watching a lot of bad TV on the couch. The commercials during the day are all for injury lawyers, Life Alert, and questionable diet products. My favorite so far is a diet bar called Slimfull. The chipper skinny girl says something like, "Losing weight is no secret. You eat less, you lose weight! It's a great plan, until you get hungry. Then there's Slimfull.... Eating less is a beautiful thing!" Riiiiiight. If I ate one of those shitty chemical bars every day, MAYBE I would feel full enough to eat less actual food... but who says eating less food will necessarily make me lose weight? Why is that just assumed to be true? Millions of Americans are practically starving themselves on small amounts of low-calorie, low-nutrition, low-taste diets and not losing weight... How does it help to tell them to eat even less?! NO soda and NO packaged chemical crap, but MORE bacon! MORE butter! Food is not created equal -- it does matter WHAT that food is. Arghhhhh...
