I recently started seeing this rugby player and the other day while we were waiting for a movie he said he had a tough training session that day and was pretty hungry. He also mentioned that he does the whole eat-every-3-hours thing. So I commented that he’s lucky that he’s able to make some really delicious meals for himself because he has plenty of time in the day (he doesn't work a 9-5, he plays rugby full time, but for far less than 8 hours a day). And he said, “No, all my meals are really boring. Everything delicious is bad for you.” I asked him what he meant and he went with the usual low fat blah blah blah, so I said that fats are actually really important. He said “Well yeah, but only "good" fats and those are not the ones that taste good.” (Which, side note: avocados are generally accepted, even in CW, as “good” and they are fucking delicious. But whatever.) I told him that actually science doesn't back that up, and he said he had years of trial and error the does back it up. I decided to drop it because I realized that this was really not a discussion/argument I wanted to have with him yet. (Only been on a few dates and he is in pretty insane shape already and my experience has shown me that people who are getting results with a routine aren’t likely to change it regardless of the science.)
Then he ordered two hot dogs a Coke at the concession stand and laughed at me when I said I don’t drink soda.
Face, I’d like you to meet my friend Palm.

No disease that can be treated by diet should be treated with any other means.
The cure for anything is salt water - sweat, tears or the sea.
