    I tried Lean Cuisine just once and could never get myself to buy one again. Blechhh... And the portions were just so small for my 5'0", 120# self. I wonder how all the 6'plus men in my work place can feel sated with these.

      So, yesterday, a group of my friends decided we should get together and watch movies at one of their houses. (When they called me, it was about 1:00 pm, I was out on a walk and hadn't eaten since dinner the night before.)


      When I arrived, they had wine and snacks, which were Guacamole, Tortilla Chips and Goat Cheese with crackers. I seated myself as far from the chips and crackers as possible--- Ali, the hostess brought me a spoon for the Guac, and a knife for the cheese. All told, I had one glass one wine, some cheese and Guac...and somehow avoided all the crap.


      This woman is a true friend, even though she happens to be a vegetarian. She gets it!

        My family took my out to my favorite sunday brunch buffet for my birthday yesterday.


        I had 5 eggs benny (and removed the english muffin) a big pile of bacon, and 4 thick slices of wonderful medium rare roast beef. They were all concerned that I hadn't "got my fill" and "wasn't I still hungry?" lol

          This was posted in the comments on a blog I frequent:


          "Since I am a dietitian, I have to make a few remarks about food choices. Starchy tubers and grains do no give anyone Type 2 Diabetes. Type 2 Diabetes happens when you weigh so much that your body shuts down you insulin receptors to make you lose weight. Not surprisingly, Type 2 Diabetes was unknown during WW1 and WW2 and the depression in between. What is the one universal thing we are seeing now and have been seeing for the past 30 years? Overweight people. When I was growing up there was one fat kid in my whole school. Go to any grade and high school now and you will see that most are overweight.


          Pasta and bread causing mental fog. Yes, that is carbohydrate dumping. If you do not have any protein with your meal and you eat a whole lot of carbohydrates like bread, pasta, grains, etc, they go from your stomach to your intestine very fast resulting in a rush of blood to the area around your intestines to absorb the nutrients.


          We are ominoves for a reason. We need some protein, I think with each meal, but some means an ounce or two or three. North Americans are overweight because they eat too much of it. Also we have stopped eating complex carbohydrates and changed to simple sugars. Complex carbohydrates contain fiber which fill you up and you must chew, slowing you down. Candy and soda are fast. I think I can eat a bag of chips without taking a breath, I certainly can with a bag of cheesies."

            Can't do quotes but I hope that dietician isn't in my country!!

            I wish my body would shut down receptors so I could lose weight!!


            There there Grok, dry your eyes...

              I visited some food blogs recently that I used to frequent earlier and many of them claim to be health blogs and they have recipes for whole-grain this and whole grain that, replacing AP flour w/ whole grain flour etc, making cakes sans eggs or butter... I feel really bad because they ARE trying in earnest to eat healthy. But sadly their definition of healthy is as defined by the USDA. In some cases, a perfectly healthy recipe like a coconut-based dip is made "healthy" by subbing the coconut with tofu. I'm sure if they knew what is healthy, they'd all change but imagine their reaction if one were to tell them fats are good.

                Can I just say I love this thread? So funny and so sad at the same time!


                I've had plenty of funny CW moments, but one that often recurs is not-so-funny. Whenever I go out to brunch with friends, I usually go for an omelet or eggs with breakfast meat. These things always come with toast on the side, and I am usually asked what KIND of toast I want. I say "no toast, please" and then one of my friends invariably chimes in "I'll take your toast!" And it kind of makes me feel badly, but what can I do? They know about my lifestyle and have seen the changes in my body first hand. Live by example, that is all.


                Keep the stories coming, all!!

                  Another misconception that is pervasive among the Indians is that wheat is a healthier option than rice. When any of them is diagnosed with heart disease, diabetes, hypertension or just wants to start eating ealthy, the first thing they do is ditch rice and start eating wheat.

                    Talking with people about diet invariably leads them to spout the cliched "well, everything in moderation," or "it's important to eat a balanced diet." Hold on a minute, here. Do you even know what you're talking about when you talk about balance? Can you explain how 50 grams of (non-saturated) fat and 400 grams of carbohydrates per day is balanced? How a deck-of-cards sized hunk of meat is balanced with 11 servings of breads and cereals? Ironically a diet "balanced" in terms of macronutrients would be almost right on track: 100 grams of carbs, protein, and fat. Sounds all right to me.


                    Next time that comes up I will try to remember to say that instead of being polite and respectful.

                    You lousy kids! Get off my savannah!

                      I ditched my membership to any online nutrition forums. It's seriously not worth arguing with people. Why have that stress in my life? I hope, though, that in some of my conversations I'm able to convince some people to add some wholesome animal fat and Omega 3's to their agenda, though. If anything, it's a step in the right direction.


                      There are truly only a few forums I've found that seem to have a grasp on nutrition. This in one place. Crossfit is another, for the most part. There's a couple others.


                      I enjoy how CW turns an average person into "instant cardiologist" the second you tell them you enjoyed a breakfast of steak and eggs. Dudes, there's a reason it's called a "Warrior Breakfast" and your giant sugar muffin is NOT.


                      Eh, anymore if anyone comments on my weight loss I just feel like holding up a sign that reads "BODY BY BACON."

                            mrd - Body by bacon!! omg i love it!! hahaha


                            PrimalChild -- that is a great point about the "balance" argument. ppl always say stupid things like that! when they find out i eat low-carb, it&#39;s all you can&#39;t cut out a whole "food" group. blegh. think i&#39;ll bring up the 100g of each argument next time, too

                              I just got accused of being a, "vampire" by my buddies. Every time they get together, it&#39;s all about carbs, and I&#39;m not hungry...


                              I think I like this :-D

                                this entire week at work, i&#39;ve sat back and watched people shovel crap into their mouths. i&#39;ve brought lunch daily because these were the options: delivery pizza, potato chips, pretzels, cookies. not a veggie tray in sight or even a piece of fruit for crying out loud! i was the only person in the room who didn&#39;t eat that stuff :/
