    At lunch on a cruise recently I was seated next to a dietician. She raised an eyebrow when I buttered my bleeding steak but never said anything about food until after lunch, when my cheese plate showed up. She brought up how she lost a bunch of weight by eating low fat/low sodium and exercising a lot, how it works for everybody, etc. Since I'm still pretty fat I knew what subject she was tap dancing around. I told her I was eating a Primal diet, only real whole foods and losing weight steadily (at the time I had lost 30lbs). She said, "That's great, but I don't like a diet that eliminates whole groups of foods. Cereals and whole grains are good for you. Just stay away from processed foods." WTF do you think cereal is? LOL

    The bit I left out is that I am IF'ing atm and that's the only food I ate that day. And it's slightly more than I would usually eat in a day (I tell ya, I was stuffed when I finished the second dessert).

    Nothing. I just microwaved it for a minute. That cooks most of the banana and melts the chocolate nicely. Then the cream gets added for creamy goodness.

    Here's an awesome alternative with more protein. Mash up a banana and mix with an egg. Spoon into several teflon muffin trays. Cook like a muffin (12 minutes at about 180degC). Eat with whipped cream, yoghurt etc.

    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

    TQP: I find for me that nutrition is much more important than what I do in the gym.

    I saw a post on Facebook today where a woman was talking about how her 6-year old daughter is alergic to wheat, corn, soy, and peanuts...then she asked what (genuinely perplexed) she could feed her child that was a healthy alternative. WTF? How about nothing with wheat, soy, corn, or peanuts for a start? Healthy food doesn't have to come out of a box, you know.

    I was discussing my new strict regimen (anti-candida plan, basically nothing but meat & nonstarchy veggies) with a very overweight relative, and explaining how bad grains are for health. Then she brings up how her husband (a longtime diabetic) likes to buy huge containers of pretzel rods & eat them with each meal, and I winced & commented on how poor a choice that is for a diabetic. Her response: "Because of the salt?" :P


    Another relative was recently hospitalized with complications due to diabetes. While in the hospital, they forced her to have only "diabetes-approved" foods -- that is, very little meat, but as much cereal & bread as she wanted. She reported to me that her blood sugar levels were in the 600-700 mg/dL range during her hospital stay, while when she returned home & started being able to eat semi-primally again (I've been giving her info & she's been slowly incorporating some of the ideas into her lifestyle), her glucose levels returned into the 60s...

    Reading all these stories makes me laugh initially - But after that i get angry. How is the world filled with IMBECILES 'teaching' us health. Dieticians classifying bread as 'unprocessed', hospitals trying to nuke the bloodstream of their patients with glucose, yet more doctors claiming that unprocessed food is a 'fad'. WTF ARE YOU DEMENTED!?!? How can pre-industrial food be a FAD!? How did the f***ing idiot ever pass medschool!?
    If i ever encounter people this dum, i fear that i shall degenerate into a verbal ocean of unpleasantry that shall not seize untill security carries me out ...
