    Nuggets from a conversation with my yoga instructor today about diet:

    "You should eat a variety of foods. It's not good to cut out any food group... except for meat of course. I haven't eaten meat in a year."

    "You shouldn't eat eggs for breakfast everyday. Try oatmeal. It's very filling and will help you lose weight. In fact, I eat oatmeal (and I'm thin!) My whole family eats oatmeal (and we're all thin!)"

    "It's not good to completely stop eating grains because once you start eating them again you will gain weight."
    (Well, yeah, that's the idea...)

    Her: "Brown rice is very very good for you and will help you lose weight."
    Me: "I eat yams a few times a week (so as not to be constantly VLC)."
    Her: "That's not good, yams have too much sugar."
    Me: "But doesn't brown rice also have sugar?"
    Her: "But brown rice has lots of nutrition and it will give you energy."
    (Here I'm thinking to myself that even if that's true, which I doubt it is, yams are so much tastier.)

    Later I looked up some nutrition facts:
    1 cup of yams (boiled or baked without salt)
    158 calories
    0g fat, 2g protein, 37g carbs (5g fiber, 1g sugar)
    glycemic load of 16
    nutrient balance score of 43 (nutrition data)

    1 cup of brown rice, long-grain, cooked
    216 calories
    2g fat, 5g protein, 45g carbs (4g fiber, 1g sugar)
    glycemic load of 22
    nutrient balance score of 33

    Nutrition Data also ranks yams as 1/2 star better than brown rice for weight loss (I'll admit this is a kind of weird scale, but lots of people do use nutrition data), and a whole star better than brown rice for optimum health.



    The worst part of CW is that people think that, of two choices, the one that tastes worse must be the 'healthier' option.

    Not to mention the phytic acid in brown rice that gives lots of people a ton of horrible sideeffects!

    The other thing that's interesting is that white rice is a better choice because it is missing the outer layer that contains the toxins.

    I have a friend that refuses to even try Primal/Paleo b/c she's fat phobic (I'm convinced). She says fat gives her an upset stomach. Whaa-? *confused*
    I've never gotten an upset stomach from fat. Excessive grease, yes. Fat, no.
    So let me get this straight... she gets nausea every time she eats eggs, avocado, coconut, or dairy? Hmm...

    So every Friday at my office there is one guy who, without fail, always buys donuts for everyone. This morning before he arrived, we had a vender come by and he dropped of some catalogs... and a giant bag of bagels with some kind of low-fat smear.

    So my co-worker shows up about 20 minutes later, two boxes of donuts under each arm. He spots the bagels and makes a comment about how "we have a healthy option for breakfast today" to go along with his donuts.

    My mother asked my previous family physician (who I grew up going to) about my Paleo diet to see if it really works and what he thinks.

    He said that it is "legit" and as long as I get all the nutrients I need I should be fine. However, most people that try this diet tend to quit after a year and they gain all of the weight they lost back.

    [sarcasm] Oh really?! [/sarcasm]

    My Mom delivered this news with puppy chow (one of my favorite treats growing up) on one of her visits. Thanks Mom. *face-palm*

    I'll leave it at that, there are just too many mommie dearest stories in stock.

    Oh sorry, it's a common thing here in the Midwest. It's actually funny to read that if you are unfamiliar with the "treat."

    Puppy chow is:

    crispy rice cereal squares
    peanut butter
    chocolate chips
    cups confectioners' sugar

    Combined to look like this:
