[QUOTE=eKatherine;1192038]I bought some yummy medjool dates for my carb refeed. I cut two in half, wrapped each half in bacon, and baked them as a treat for my (non-primal) boyfriend. Afterwards he is acting like he's in sugar shock from them, so I suggested I take his blood sugar with my glucose meter. NO NEEDLES, NO WAY, NEVER!
So what did he do? Ran to the refrigerator and poured himself a glass of code red. Um, hello?[/QUOTE]
That is getting added to my list of meaty recipes to try...
This is addictive reading. If you want CW junk, you reaaally need to look at Slimming World recipes. I rebelled against Slimming World when I was on it with my OH, I just couldn't eat that much crap. This is hands down the grossest thing I have ever eaten - [url=http://slimming-world-recipes.blogspot.co.uk/2013/02/slimming-world-macaroni-and-broccoli.html]Slimming World Recipes: Slimming World - Macaroni and Broccoli Cheese[/url]

So of course my nosey self had to go over and look around. Looked at their approved fruit list and all melons in the "M" section are ok except for watermelon (my favorite.) But all is well as watermelon was approved once I got into the "W's. Thanks for my first snort of the day.
What the heck are "syns"?
Syns are sins - you have to have 5-15 a day. This is where a big issue lay for me - so I HAVE to eat at least 1 pack of crisps / bar of chocolate a day, so I won't go off plan? But I don't eat that kind of stuff ...
I had a discussion along these same lines with my SO who is about 100 lbs. over. She has constant hip pain. Likely degenerative. I mentioned that losing weight would help with that. She said that the problem would still be there.
I pointed out that losing weight, while it may not cure the problem, would reduce the amount of impact on the problem when she was walking.
But, she said, I would still have the problem.
that was her subtle way of saying 'stfu about my weight D:<'

I know it is just one guy's opinion, but I can safely say that you would look good in anything.
That is a good point though, I am all about health, but looking good naked/dressed is also a motivational goal.
on another note - a guy I work with is diabetic and cannot get his numbers where they need to be. He has 'changed his diet' - the only change is eating low carb waffles with sugar free syrup for breakfast instead of Captain Crunch. Everything else (chips, soda, pastries etc) stayed but that one change will make all the difference. *sighs*
Hamburger Helper looks disturbing, having read the Wikipedia on it I still don't get it, it is a packet of pasta and herbs? how does it "help" a hamburger?
