  • A Facebook friend posted this today, saying how good it is. I commented with my opinion, of course! Still waiting for a reply:

      I posted the same story on facebook a few days ago.. At first I got a bit of a fight, but then I got in a mic drop moment. It was pretty nice.

      In an awesome non CW moment, my boyfriend and I were out to dinner and ordered this amazing seafood dish in a creamy tomato-y sauce. He asked out waitress for some bread to soak up the sauce and she informed us that she was very sorry, but they don't serve bread! Most of their deserts were grain based, so it's not really a paleo restaurant, but it was still quite a surprise.

        • My aunt is a dietician and she absolutely hates my primal ways haha I can't convince her other than waiting to see the results over a long time and sticking to my guns!
          Anyways the other day I was helping her take her cats to the vet and she offered me lunch afterwards but she said I could only eat something 'carby' because she believes I will keel over at any second because I havnt eaten bread, pastas, grains or anything like it for months (obviously don't need to!)
          Little does she know haha :P
          I feel so isolated as every day I search for others like me, I havn't found them yet but I will one day...

            That seems just mean on her part, trying to force you to eat only certain foods instead of offering you a complete meal of the sort that she would be having.

              Perhaps those "certain foods" ARE a complete meal of the sort that she would be having!

                She normally tries to eat healthy on the CW (but it doesn't work cause she is overweight lol) but whenever I'm around its like she tries to force me to eat the crap

                • My company's cafeteria there is a new notice at the entrance.
                  "In this cafeteria we use solely canola oil for cooking " - (so, frying, baking, sautéing...) - "because of its low saturated fats content"

                  Thanks for the info: I never ate there, and now I know I never will

                    I agree, trying to explain it won't work (and generates useless stress). Concrete results are the best argument ever.

                    Sometimes, especially when I speak to doctors and dietologists, it seems to me they have all the information at hand: they just cannot "connect the dots" and see the picture.

                      Yep that's exactly the problem D: one day hopefully something will break through and we will see a change in society

                      • I have an FB friend who says that she has to eat off a divided plate so that she knows that she is getting her protein, starch and veg per meal. It's from years of following WeightWatchers/JennyCraig/NutriSystem, that if she doesn't get what she's "supposed" to, she feels cheated and overeats later. I told her that those weren't diets, they were businesses.

                        Another friend sat and listened to (my last ever) spiel about what I eat and why. Her take? "So, everything in moderation, right?"

                        I do so enjoy the What Should We Call Paleo Life site.

                          I'm sorry, Alex. Were you saying something? I was distracted by looking at your abs. If those are really yours, nice work.

                          • Greatest CW fail of the day courtesy of Facebook:
                            Yummy breakfast! Only 27lbs more to loose :-) I'm SO excited! I love watching the scale go down and feeling my clothes getting bigger!
                            Then a glorious picture of a healthy breakfast:
                            A bowl of frosted mini wheats, a bowl of strawberries and blueberries, a banana and orange juice.

                            *so much sugar* *facepalm*

                            Good luck with keeping off the pounds my friend, cuz you're gunna need it.

                            • My partner got a box of these as an unexpected birthday gift.

                              Eat Natural bars

                              The big letters on the front of the packaging say:

                              Eat Natural with cranberries, macadamias and dark chocolate and nothing dodgy

                              Ingredients: Dark chocolate 20% (cocoa mass, sugar, cocoa butter, emulsifier: soya lecithin), shredded coconut 14%, glucose syrup, sultanas 12%, brazil nuts 11%, crisped rice (rice, sugar), dried cranberries 7% (cranberries, sugar, sunflower oil), macadamia nuts 6%, honey.

                              Nothing dodgy huh? But part of one made a great snack halfway through a 30 miles cycle ride in the Scottish hills in the wind and rain.
