  • This morning in the gym I learned that because women evolved separately from men, we shouldn't do even body weight bearing activities
    That's a classic! Ya gotta wonder how that person thought they evolved past generation 1 if they did it separately.
    The Buck stops here. I am responsible for my past and my future. So for today: I choose to be happy. I will seek wisdom. I will be a servant to others. I will greet this day with a forgiving spirit.

      Edited to add: What is tocos?

      Edited a second time: Nevermind about tocos, it's a superfood... man, no wonder this is expensive. The only dandyblend I'm finding is a herbal coffee substitute, though, which doesn't make much sense.

          I don't know where the picture was taken, it was posted on another site as sort of a "WHUT?" kind of thing.

          • My wife has been wonderful, really - she's not primal herself, and isn't sure about it for her or the kids, but fully supports me doing it. She understands that it should help me manage my weight and risk for diabetes and other illnesses, and she's seen my positive results over the last year or two, especially the last few months.

            That said, she still reverts to CW from time to time - understandable, since it's hard to totally break free from it. Yesterday morning, I made myself a beverage of canned coconut milk, instant coffee, cocoa powder, and a little maple syrup to sweeten - very delicious, by the way. Part of my attempt to break free from Diet Mountain Dew as a regular source of caffeine.

            Upon seeing my drink, her reaction was: "How much coconut milk? Half a cup? All that fat can't possibly be healthy! I know it's supposed to be the good fat, but still - what's wrong with regular milk? (which in our house means rice or almond milk.)" For the record, my drink had about 200 calories, 20 grams of fat, and maybe 6 grams of carbs - hardly unreasonable!

            This after a breakfast of GF apple cinnamon pancakes (for her and the kids) and eggs over easy (for me) - bacon was enjoyed by everyone. Guess who was hungry again by 11 AM, and who waited until 2 PM for a light lunch.

            • I've been boiling ever since my long term, thin, friend asked about my diet. When I tried to explain about primal, others put in their 2 cents, so I never got the floor and the last thing I heard from my long term, thin, friend was I eat everything in moderation. It seems she just wanted to throw that out there and not really learn about primal at all. Should have known the minute the question was asked.

              • Whoops.. I wondered why that woman was asking 'what is tacos' and was like "who the hell doesn't know what a taco is'.. but I was totally wrong!

                I'd goto that coffee shop.

                • The new gym instructor at my gym is interesting. I talk to him a fair bit and he is cool, but i'm not sure he is qualified.

                  Well he has the 'technical' qualifications and the paper but that doesn't mean shit to me. Anyway, I was talking to him after my workout today and I forget how it come up but he does 'stupid people doing 10 reps' and telling me that these days all that matters is strength and that everyone hates bodybuilders.. I said it depends what you want and personally I want a bit of both, I want strength but to also be muscular and look good and he's like 4-6 reps is all that matters for everyone.

                  Then we talked about food and the look on his face when I mentioned paleo.. "they've proven it doesn't work".

                  "Whos they"..
                  "Everybody..."

                  "Everybody? Well I read the book and it sounded good and I tried it and i've proven with my own experience that it works" and he's just like "but everything works". And I said "anyone can pay enough to come up with any results they want in a study, but it's getting me awesome results" and he went quiet and didn't really have much argument past "everybody has proven it doesn't work".

                  Coincidentally if I hadn't seen him working in the gym and working out there a few times i'd have no idea that he ever worked out because he is skinny and doesn't look like he's ever touched a weight... so much for his 'interesting' ideas and his great arguments that he couldn't expand on when I questioned it.

                  I guess personal training licenses are found in cereal boxes.

                    • So I'm listening to the Diabetes Summit, largely because I'm sick as a dog and don't have much better to do. Rebooking holiday time, yay... eheh. So I was listening to the low carb diet stuff and I said to mom...

                      Me: Hey, can you imagine telling your co-workers that eating more fat and meat would be good for them? Would their heads explode?

                      Mom: Probably. I would never mention that summit to them... my boss's daughter tried to convince her that sugar is bad. Well, that's just crazy talk! Sugar isn't bad, you just need to take your insulin.

                      Me: ... Seriously?

                      Mom: Yep.

                      Me: Nothing can get in the way of those doughnuts, I guess.

                            Sigh... your mom could be describing my dad! He's not a sugar fiend by any means, but he still eats his fair share, along with all the bread and cereal he pleases. He's sure that as long as he takes his insulin each day, he'll be fine.

                            This while he restricts his red meat consumption and loads up on the Egg Beaters, Smart Balance, and skim milk...

                              Honey Bunches of Oats? That stuff is like dessert in a bowl! Seriously, my teeth hurt just thinking about it. A quick Google search shows it has 2g of fiber per serving, and five kinds of sugar on the ingredients label!

                              Now take a breakfast I have as a treat occasionally, which is hardly health food - a shake of canned pumpkin, protein powder, almond milk, spices, and an egg, sweetened with some xylitol and a touch of maple syrup. This has 9g of fiber along with a bunch of Vitamin A, protein, and other good stuff.

                                They have been showing a Honey Bunches of Oats commercial recently where a factory worker brags that she smells like cookies because she works there......
