this is all so wrapped up in emotion, though, isn't it?
I mena, when i eat, it's never this emotional. If i'm not hungry, and I happen to eat something to please someone else, I might say it like "I didn't like the taste of it, and boy, it made my stomach hurt!" Not "i hated it."
See the difference?

Well maybe I didn't hate it but the night before I almost threw up and I don't think I should be pushed to eat when I feel sick anyway.

He also keeps asking "do you want a sandwich" "do you want ice cream?" and I keep saying no and then he calls me obsessed while in reality he is the one constantly talking about food, I'm just responding

It sounds like your dad is worried about you. Watching your child regularly skip meals and worry about every morsel would ring alarm bells in my head too. Have you got a copy of Primal Blueprint that your parents could read, to understand a bit better what it is you're trying to do?
Perhaps next time you're offered ice cream, rather than 'i can't have ice cream' or something like that, how about 'i've just had an omelette (or whatever you've had) so i'm nice and full thanks'.
I suspect your dad can tell you have food issues but doesn't know how to help.

Yes Gadsie, if you don't want your dad to be worried about you then keep putting on weight. And if the ice-cream is "clean" there is no harm in having some. Haagen Daz do some very simply ice creams. Their vanilla has only cream, skimmed milk, sugar, egg yolk and vanilla in it, and the plain strawberry version is very similar with strawberries instead of vanilla. If you are lifting weights as often as you say you are it is very likely to be beneficial for you to have more sugar in your diet.

You know, I was wondering about this 'cheat'. Ice cream is actually the only non-primal thing I crave. I want it BAD. but i can't really enjoy small portions so when I eat it I want an entire pint. So I think I shouldn't do that too often. maybe once a month max?

Well, I was actually thinking about haagen dazs macadamia nut brittle, If I remember correctly, it was clean. And if I just buy 1 pint, I can't go overboard because I don't have more

If you are doing weightlifting you can have it every day or two. I do in the days following a gym visit. I think sugar facilitates cell division, which is great for growing children and people building muscle, and terrible for cancer victims! With the amount of lifting you do I am not surprised you crave ice cream. So go for it. The important thing is to be picky about the ingredients, an not end up eating soy, veg oil and HFCS. They all say what is inside on the label, so not difficult.
