  • Once upon a time I was subletting a room from a family in Santa Rosa. Yup, Northern California wine country, fresh fruit and veg available year-round and Trader Joe's a short bike ride away. We shared the kitchen, but not meals. Why? Well, I was eating dinners based on sale items from TJ's like caviar with sour cream (3 bucks a jar, this was Back in the Day), wine (2 bucks a bottle), king crab legs, fresh asparagus...meanwhile the roommates, in the interest of "eating healthy", were chowing down on...

    ...wait for it...

    ...a large bowl of fat-free microwave popcorn (shared).

    Their teenage son, who wasn't down for the popcorn superfood goodness, usually ate his dinners at Burger King.

The server might simply be trying to avoid a future problem by determining that you definitely understand the situation.
              Entirely possible Elliot, but I think if you knew me you'd agree that just by looking at me everyone can plainly see I'm not an idiot...see below:

                  • Following the sweat theme...
                    I go to a hot yoga class and part of the reason I love it is for the sweat I get out of it. When other's ask me about it, their usual response is that it sounds too sweaty for them.

                      I love hot yoga/bikram for the sweat as well! Also saunas and steam rooms.

                      • My husband and I did some time as strict vegans. For months, his work colleagues watched him eat nothing but vegetables. After we switched to Paleo, my husband attended a business conference where a buffet lunch was served, so he helped himself to salad and some roast beef. All was quiet as the men sat around a table together, enjoying their first bites, when one of my husband's co workers noticed hubby's Paleo plate and yelled out loudly for all to hear: "DUDE! You're eating MEAT!"

                        • So, I was at a Greek restaurant with friends the other day at lunch and it was funny. They've known me so long that for many years I couldn't eat bacon or pork. It turns out that the inflammatory response of the gluten causes me to have problems with pork. And other things. So, for a long time, if I had pork, I had the requisite stomach upset, etc. My two friends know this and when I was ordering food, ordered souvlaki, which has pork.

                          And they both yelled out, "NO" at the same time. The server's face was precious. I told them that I could eat bacon and all it's delicious friends since I wasn't eating grains, but I'm not sure they were convinced.
                          The eyes of all hope in thee, O Lord: and thou givest them meat in due season.

                          • It's death by food week at work. So. Much. Food. Each department has a potluck this week.
                            Today was my wing's holiday potluck. I brought bacon wrapped jalapenos stuffed with cream cheese. Someone brought smoked salmon. Someone made a turkey. Not one vegetable (besides jalapeno that I brought) or fruit was present on that table. But I was able to eat at the potluck. Felt fine afterwards.
                            Things I heard others say after eating everything else that was brought:
                            -I'm sick
                            -Why do I eat so much
                            -I wish I could put sweatpants on
                            -I need bigger pants
                            -I need a nap now
                            -I'm skipping the next 2 weight watchers weigh-ins so I can recover from this week before weighing in
                            -I'm stopping weight watchers until Jan. Can't do it during the holidays
                            -I'm taking a plate back to my desk for an afternoon snack (had cookies, cakes, candies on it)

                            And they will do it all over again tomorrow....

                            • When faced with a choice of "bad" foods outside of the house, I make better choices. I wouldn't have been walking back to my desk with those things but I definitely understand it

                                That's pushing it in terms of vegetables. Love it.

                                I do understand treating yourself over the holidays- our office party had amazing home made egg nog, chorizo/goat cheese dates.... good stuff. But it really has turned into a season, hasn't it?
