  • My new low carb colleague and I were sitting with lunch with our new CEO. We were talking between the two of us about being creative with salads and our boss asks if we were following a special diet.
    me: I'm eating according to the Primal Blueprint. and translate it to Dutch when I see his confusion.
    CEO: oh, why would you do that?
    me: it makes me feel better, no heart rhythm issues anymore.
    colleague: I do it for the sugar balance. I have tons more energy through out the day. no dips.
    CEO looks impressed and ask: So you eat tons of fat and it gives you tons of energy?
    me: not only fat, proteins as well, healthy foods like bio-meat and veggies. Just no sugar and grains.
    CEO: alright, it might be an idea to throw out all sugar, than for lunch we order only whole wheat sandwiches.

    *something with a face and a palm*
    My story, My thought....

    It's all about trying to stay healthy!!!!

      I don't think he quite gets it...
      Most people don't realize how much energy it takes for me to pretend to be normal.

      If I wanted to listen to an asshole, I'd fart.

      • Someone at work today brought in a box of "White Cupcakes with REAL Buttercream Icing". They were gone before lunch, so I tipped the box over to look at the ingredients. Butter was the 32nd ingredient on the list! And that was only halfway down! And I didn't see "cream" on the list at all. Only dried milk powder.

        • So I volunteer time at a local bike co op where you can come fix your bike for lowest possible costs, on of the other mechanics comes in at 6 pm with a huge find he got from a dumpster. 12 boxes of pastry cakes. Little debbie sort of things. They went nuts on them and between 4 guys ate 40 plus cakes....

          It was almost scary to watch and by 8 30 tonight all of them were passing out, sucking back coffee and generally being a bunch of stunned arses. I said no thanks and got a weird look for turning it down but hey I was not crashing either.

          The guy that brought them was like, hey it is vegan, must be ok.

                        Adding hydrogen (hydrogenation) to veggie oil creates trans fats not saturated fats.. Meaning the hydrogens are added trans (across from each other) instead of cis (on same side of the double bond) like saturated fats are. We all can agree trans fats are horrible for you, CW or primal.


                        But nice answer on the butter one. Maybe from a chemical perspective the teacher will agree with you as saturated fats are way more heat stable due to greater van der waals forces between straighter chains (saturated) than crooked chains (unsaturated), hence more thermal energy is required to excite them to vaporization point?

                              I was going to put something along the lines of that (albeit a lot more simplistic) but I wasn't too sure of it...chemistry is my worst subject. I find it interesting - I just hate the topics that we do. I'm so sick of electrolysis.

                              Going to memorise that for when it's needed.
                              Well I don't know if your teacher knows if it is beginning chemistry or high school chemistry. Trans vs cis is more of an organic chemistry thing.

                              Our bodies can saturate unsaturated fats by adding 2 hydrogens cis across the double bond, but there isn't an industrial process (ie. catalyst) that can add cis, so trans it is. Trans fat can't be processed by the body because it isn't a naturally occurring sort of fat, so it is left in the blood stream. Since trans fat looks like a zig zag, it can easily be stacked on top of each other and form plaque in your arteries and etc. Hence people saying hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated fats are bad...
