I'm soooo tired of these kinds of comments!! The whole "you must have whole grains to survive" (not just grains, but WHOLE grains) or "if you don't balance out that protien with carbs, you're gonna mess up your [whatever today's CW catchphrase is] system".

Uhhh... "Again -- no GRAINS, no LEGUMES (which includes soy), great big bunches of GOOD fats and avoid processed foods in general, especially those with sugar".
"So, what can I feed you next time you come over?"
"Have some lettuce and a carrot ready, Mom... just pretend I'm a cartoon rabbit when I'm at your house"
I was having fun talking to people about what I'm doing... until about 2 weeks ago. I still enjoy speaking to those I haven't seen since before I started (42 pounds ago! ;-p). It's the ones that I work and/or live with every day that are really getting on my nerves with all the 'helpful' advice and newest "facts" they heard on that Special K commercial last night.
Don't they get it by now???
Started 7/5/11 at 274 lbs
Now 214 -- that's 60 lbs!
Goal 160 lbs -- last time there was in junior high!
