    That usually shuts them up.

    They also have a lot of help from the media that keeps telling them they don't have to give up grains.

    Were you not ever guilty of those excuses... or others? You can't make anyone SEE, they have to work it out for themselves. Concentrate on you, forget about other people.
    Yes thank you. And the funny thing is that there are so many posts from people on this BB about:
    1. Feeling like crap following primal.
    2. Not able to resist cheats.

    Mostly when I read these posts I imagine the posters to be like the smug vegans I used to know who just "had no need for dairy or meat as tofu and veggies kept them full satisfied.... yum as good as steak you weak meateater"

    The only thing that irritates me is when people comment on how healthy/fit I look, and then ask at the next breath: "Are you a vegetarian?"

    Oh, wow. I must have some awesome friends then, because through our collective various diet choices through the years, I have never gotten anything remotely like that one (or given, it either).

    A thought popped into my head when I read you: a long time ago I bought the Bill Phillips book Body for Life. It was the first (well, only) time I had ever purchased anything bodybuilding-related ever. I found a video at the library that went with. And one portion I remember clearly to this day is this - in the post-contest interviews the wife of one of the original 10 Body for Life contestants was holding the "after" shirtless photo of her husband, and said that her own best friend gave her the photo right back and said that she couldn't look at it because she didn't want to have lustful thoughts about her best friend's husband...

    I can imagine you and your wife, both trim and ripply... a little accidental shirt-hiking happening... as you say something totally cool-headed like, "very well, thank you"...

    I get this all the time where I work...I just smile and politely say, "Do I look like a vegetarian"?

    I also get the exercise question allot my answer is "less than you think....twice a week I lift four about an hr." Along with "I also walk and do sprints every so often"

    Response is "you should be running more...at least three times a week" says the skinny fat girl, and the guy with no legs and back says "you need to lift 4-5 days a week hitting different body parts"
