    Now I'm consumed with a burning curiosity about Wesson. I'll have to take a peek at the label when I go to the grocery store tonight.

    Not a funny moment but a rather sad one IMO. I never preach to anyone about my choice of eating, but if people ask I gladly will tell them about it. Someone asked me about PB and I explained what I eat and what types of food I choose to exclude. Their reaction was to tell me that if they were to restrict their diet then there would be no enjoyment in life. Then proceeded to say that I will probably outlive him by 20 years, but at least he'll be happy during the time he's alive.

    Yeah, I always feel miserable when I'm eating grilled ribeye and asparagus roasted in garlic butter. It makes me lose the will to live.

    I just recalled one of the worst CW moments that occurred at my brother's house last year visiting. He is employed as a chef and knows how to cook. He made a roast chicken for supper and it was sitting on the counter resting before he was going to carve it up. I went to the table and couldn't wait to dig into to that delicious bird. When he came to the table with the carved chicken there was no skin on the plate. I asked him where the skin went. "I threw it out. It's too fattening" he said. I went to the garbage and had to look. Sure enough it was there. I think I shed a tear.

    Today is employee appreciate day at work. I of course chose not to participate in coffee and doughnuts, however found myself a bit peckish as i had not eaten before leaving. So i warmed up my 8 oz greek burger and was walking down the aisle. My manager saw me and asked if i had gotten a doughnut then looked again and said " that looks way better than a doughnut"

    How can they say things like that but still tout grains? I see it as they subconsciously know meat is better but cant consciouly accept it.

    The other day I went out for lunch with some coworkers as a team-building exercise to California Pizza Kitchen. I ordered a salad and the man sitting across from me (my project manager) said, “A salad? You looked at the calorie counts* didn't you? Don't even look at those, get what you want. You don’t need to diet."

    In my mind I was like, "No asshole, I didn't look at the calorie counts. I looked at what was delicious!" But in life I just sort of looked away and mumbled “glutenfreemumblemumble” and then everyone at the table started talking about home theatre systems or something.

    And for the record, I looked it up when I got back to my desk and my salad was over 1000 calories, and I ate the whole damn, delicious thing! It is so aggravating that he would just assume I’m on a diet.

    I love too how people see you eating well and say things like "you don't need to diet" ... Its like "well, dummy, I don't stay so fit and healthy by slogging down the crap YOU eat."

    Yeah. Now that I am at my goal weight, I get that all the time. "You don't need to diet". Well, how do you think I got here? By eating whole pizzas? People just don't get that eating healthy /= dieting.

    Yep, I looked at the label last night, and sure enough - soybean oil. Then I made a face and picked up a good quality extra virgin olive oil.
