For after all what is man in nature? A nothing in relation to infinity, all in relation to nothing, a central point between nothing and all and infinitely far from understanding either.

Actually - this is my #1 shock and amazement with the women I know... 99% of them have no idea how many calories they eat or how many they burn during exercise... but they ALL think as long as they exercise, they can eat whatever they want.

Just today i called up a small dairy who produce unpasteurised jersey dairy products, to ask if they're 100% grassfed..
The lady was explaining she feeds oats and beans and stuff, and right now there's not much fresh grass so they're eating hay as well, etc etc...
Anyway, then she goes "but actually oats are very good for the milk...they lower the cholesterol in it" ... i just smiled and said "ok" ...
I also remember aaages ago, i was at the farmers market and was buying quite a bit of cheese. This other lady there said to me "aren;t you worried about all that cholesterol?"... And then i started talking about how theres nothing bad about dietary cholesterol...she just listened and nodded...mustv'e thought i was crazy! That's when i learnt not to talk about health/nutrition to most people still brainwashed by CW..
Oh, and i just remember yesterday i was talking to a friend and he said he had a sore throat, and when he got home he had a lot of fruit. I didn't say anything, but i was thinkin "whyyyyyy?!"... Why do so many people think that when they're sick fruit is the best thing to eat?!
I've been getting snarky comments about how much weight I've lost and how I look, mostly from jealous people. I've gotten used to it. The one I loved was in a diner. A "friend" said "1 cinnamon can't possibly hurt, as skinny as you've gotten." The "cinnamon roll" was the size of a dinner plate and coated with a cream cheese icing. Easily 100 g carbs alone. I said "No, thanks, the wheat and sugar would tear me up for the next couple days." His reply? "Your loss. These are how I get my fiber in." *facepalm*
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"
My Latest Journal
Last night the lines at the grocery store stretched all the way back into the aisles, and I found myself crammed into the section that featured Safeway "Eating Right" low fat fruit multigrain bars (shelved, perhaps not without irony, right next to the fruit by the foot and other fruit snacks). While waiting, I heard a little kid behind examine one of the boxes and then exclaim "Low fat? I wanna eat fat!"
Party on little Grok!
