  • Diet Cokes are addicting; there was a long time in my past when you would not see me without a diet coke in hand and another one at ready.

    • Not much of a story really, but a cute girl on a dating site wrote she was vegan.. being in an asshole mood I sent "why on earth would you ever want to be a vegan" and she told me that in 10 years i'll wish that I was a vegan.

      I'm not sure what happens in 10 years but i'll stick with what's given me results. I was gonna send back 'the only men i've seen who are vegans look like pussies' but I didn't haha.

      • I'm not so sure how funny this is but my husband overheard his students discussing Senior Projects, one teacher is giving credit for not eating any animal products for the rest of the school year. Apparently he does this every year.
        Someone needs to upset him by eating EXTRA animal products!

          Before we met, my hubby met a gal via a dating site who said in an email that she was a vegetarian. He was in a snarky mood and wrote back it was fine with him as long as she didn't mind that he liked to eat the burned carcasses of furry little animals. She didn't write back...

            HAHAHAHA that's awesome.

            I ended up writing back "nah i'll stick to paleo as it's got me all my results, so you're going to have to learn how to cook steak for me".. for some reason she didn't reply.

                Forks Over Knives is hilarious. In one scene they talk about a study done with rats in which the rats fed less protein developed less cancer. They take this as evidence that protein promotes cancer and therefore we should all eat low-protein diets. But they make the mistake of actually displaying the study's abstract on the screen. If you pause the movie you can read it.

                Right there, in the abstract, it says the group fed the low protein diet died more. Significantly more. This implies we should really eat higher-protein diets. We might develop cancer but at least we'll actually be alive!

                When I reached that scene and read the abstract, I laughed out loud. Unfortunately, most people will probably not read it and just accept the movie's biased interpretation.

                    • Recipe search led to a weight watchers blog, and I thought, what the hell I'll check it out, it can't be that bad right?

                      Omg.

                      Everything is sad and pale and covered in a scattering of cheese and a shitton of bread.

                      The recipe I found contained 12 ounces of chicken and was estimated for twelve generous servings. One ounce of chicken in a "generous" serving??

                      Poor girl.

                        That 12 ounces of chicken would be my meal. One serving, all mine.

                          That was actually my dinner last night. On top of some hempseed tabouli and an avocado.

                          Just for the lulz I poked around a few other "healthy" recipes. This one from the Kitchn, "Lighter stuffed shells with low fat cheese, the same stodgy pasta, and none of the satisfaction."

                          I really used to be a pasta fiend. Like could finish a whole basket of Olive Garden breadsticks and spaghetti with marinara (no meatballs). Now it just kinda grosses me out. Like wet bread. It's crazy like even the texture is just... ew.

                          • This is sort of the opposite of this thread but I want to vent... WHY is there so much bacon in my house?!? It's like every time they go out, my parents see more bacon on sale and they have to buy it. Damn it... sure, we eat bacon every morning, but we have like six packs in the fridge downstairs and more in the freezer. STOP IT with the bacon for a while!

                            Ohhhh well. It could be cake?

                              Too much bacon can never be a problem.
