  • So my MIL is totally a CW fanatic, she is a perfectly healthy weight fortunately - probably due to her not allowing anything slightly delicious cross her lips in the last 15 years (she does have BP and cholesterol issues). Anyhow the other day we were discussing my BIL who has recently married into the family. He's unfortunately rather overweight and slowly gaining more, he's also 6ft 6in and as we say in these parts 'built like a brick sh*t house', so he's huge in more ways than one. We are all quite concerned about his health, and the fact that his ability to work depends on regular medical clearances (he's a pilot).

    My MIL can't work out why he's gaining so much weight as both he and his new wife do eat a CW diet. I briefly talked about the way I eat (Primal) and said that I wondered if he might benefit from this type of lifestyle too. MIL totally ignored what I just said and proclaimed that it must be the quantity of food he eats and that if he simply ate less then he'd loose weight.

    Seriously, she wants to tell this giant of a man to eat less? If only they could all see that it doesn't need to be that way, that actually I do eat as much as I want (and I have a healthy appetite) but I maintain a healthy weight. So frustrating but its not my fight.

      No. No it is not.
      lol, man, we only wish! I bet that PE student is healthy though.

      • My SO, bless him, was telling a friend of his that I lost 50 lbs in months on paleo (not accurate, but gotta love him). He misses details at times. But the guy says it is too expensive and is doing WeightWatchers instead and.... not losing. Yet they drink beer out at a bar 2-3 times a week. But Paleo and Crossfit too expensive. $100 a week sitting on their asses drinking beer could be applied to buying good foods and a $125 a month Crossfit package.

        The funny thing is the guy loves meat- he BBQ's all the damn time. Just ditch the grains and he'd be golden!

The other comment, when I made some significant money was "you'll be able to afford to buy proper food now (lol)" again despite spending lots more than any of them do

          so yup it's not up for discussion with CW believers, even my friends
          This reminds me of my sister, who tells her friends that I'm on "some hippy diet." Um, no offense to hippies, but when has eating tons of meat and BACON ever been seen as hippy-ish? Ha.

          • another *facepalm* on facebook:

            Preheat oven to 350; smoosh refrigerated cookie dough into the bottom of each well. Place Reese cup upside down on top of cookie dough (or an Oreo!). Top with prepared box brownie mix, filling 3/4 full. Bake for 18 minutes! HEAVEN!

            A must (SHARE) if you love the people on your friends list!


            No, you know what? I love the people on my friends list and that's exactly why I WON'T share it. *headdesk*

                  Ha, one of my facebook friends shared this recipe too. I'll admit that pre-primal it's definitely something I would have eagerly devoured. Glad I know better now

                    Yep, I get the same sort of remarks from some of my friends and family too. I could tell them 20 times what kind of food I eat and they still call me a granola hippie. Some people just don't listen or pay attention.

                        • I just had someone send me a sweet and sour soup recipe from Martha Stewart's website. The protein was tofu. I told him it sounded good, but I'd probably make it with chicken. He told me I was becoming a wacko. I told him I hope he will enjoy his future man-boobs.

                          • At the gym the other night, someone had flipped the cooking channel on. Paula Dean was showing people how to make Snicker's bars brownies, where you line the pan with Snicker's bars then put the brownie batter over it. I kept thinking, well, this is why you're overweight, Paula...
                            Stumbled into Primal due to food allergies, and subsequent elimination of non-primal foods.

                            Start Gluten-Free/Soy-Free: December 2012; start weight 158lbs, Ladies size 6
                            Start Primal: March 2013, start weight 150lbs, Ladies size 6
                            Current: 132lbs, Ladies size 2
                            F/23/5'9"

                            26lbs lost since cutting the crap.

                              I'm the "go to" friend whenever someone wants to "get in shape". I just shrug and say "Eh, don't eat crap, lift some weights. It's not sorcery."
