I had this conversation with my sister just the other day too. It went something like this;
Me: I often dont eat breakfast, and somtimes if Im busy enough I wont even eat lunch, and I feel great.
Sis: That is so unhealthy! You are starving yourself which will cause you to overeat at your next meal, which will make you put on more weight. Also, if you dont eat you wont have any energy to run on!
Me: I have plenty of energy, thats what fat stores are for. I just said I felt great and have plenty of energy and also I wasn't making a point to not eat breakfast; I simply was not hungry. Why should I force myself to eat if I am not hungery?
My sis really had nothing to say to that. Also, Im a size 2-4 jeans, and I just told her that this has been routine for me since going primal, does it look like I binge at my next meal and get fat? Uggh...
One last thing, even though it wasn't really a moment, more of an ongoing annoyance; My soon-to-be inlaws think they've got it all figured out; they eat low fat, high carb (always whole grain). My S.O. always ate like this while he lived with them obviously and he had horrible acne, was underweight, and stuggled to make any gains in weightlifting. Soon as we switched to primal they told us we we're killing ourselves, even though Kyles acne cleared up and he started making gains like crazy when he lifts. Same goes for me *and* I lost 40ish pounds. This is the saddest part; she has horrible osteoporosis, passes out (litterally!) if she doesn't eat every three hours because of her horrible blood sugar crashes (docs solution; eat more often ) and even though both of them hike up a huge hill for 2hrs every morning, I can only describe them as skinny-fat, right around the middle, in a way Im pretty sure isn't healthy and indicates high cortisol levels due to all the cardio. He thinks that because he can climb that huge hill he is way healthier than anyone, including Kyle, and often makes jabs at him and me about how we cant walk up that hill as fast as he can. I've (sadly and embarrassingly) lost my patience a couple of times and asked him to squat 25+ pounds more than he weighs 25x's and then we can talk and they still make comments like Kyle does this to play along, and maybe it works for me but I'm a special little snowflake, Kyle is normal and should go back to eating like them because they're doing so well . Honestly, Im so frustrated by this sometimes its hard to be happy to stay at their place in Hawaii every summer, but my S.O. cant bear to not see them for a few weeks every year so off we go...I love him so I have to suck it up and try my hardest not to explode at them... Wow, I really had to vent that. Sorry
