    Conversation during lunch at a fabulous Mediterranean Deli....

    Friend: "You aren't eating the Naan and Hummus? Don't you like it?"
    Me: "Remember I told you I was not eating grains or beans now? With my family history, I am trying to minimize my chances of developing type 2 diabetes."
    Friend: "Have you talked to a Doctor about this? I think if you don't eat any carbs, you might be setting yourself up to GET diabetes."
    Me: "Eh... I didn't say I don't eat carbs.... and also.... oh never mind. How's your saffron rice?"

    ******
    I can't figure out how to explain or avoid conversations about how my husband and I choose to eat. I try to avoid, but just keep on getting in awkward convos. Oh well....

    Go Grok!

    Out at a coffee house with two friends, size XL and XXXL. I'm at the counter ordering while they are at the table chomping on cookies that are (no exaggeration) about 8-10 inches in diameter plus slurping up mocha lattes. They are looking at my newly slimmed posterior and don't think I hear them as I am getting my large unsweetened herbal tea.

    XL: Wow, Robin really has lost a lot of weight. (chomp, slurp)
    XXXL : Yeah, it really shows. (chomp, slurp)
    XL: She's just lucky. (chomp, slurp)
    XXXL : Yeah, she must have one of *those* metabolisms. (chomp, slurp)
    XL: Yeah, that's so unfair. (chomp, slurp)
    XXXL: Yeah, I could never do that with MY metabolism. (chomp, slurp)
    XL: No, me neither. (chomp, slurp)

    I have told both of these people about Primal but they would rather ascribe my success to "luck" or one of *those* metabolisms than take a hard look at their own behaviors. Now, I'm not saying that real metabolic disorders don't exist, but I think there are a lot of people playing the "metabolism card" as an excuse to not make better choices.

    That night I just decided to pretend like I didn't hear them just because getting into it would be pointless. These are well educated intelligent women with all the resources of MDA (thanks to me) but still refuse to change. That is their choice I guess. Oh well.

    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".

    My mother was feigning interest yesterday...
    she says "So, besides the no bread or pasta, no soy and low fat, what else can't you eat?"
    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!

    The greatest CW myth of all time:

    "Subway. Eat fresh."

    Now with low-fat yogurt parfaits with one entire serving of fruit to go with your sugar and chemicals.

    The thing that kills me about people eating Subway is the whole attitude "Well at least it's not fried. It must be a little better for me than fast food."
    Except that the meats still contain hydrogenated oils! And plenty of other stuff you can't pronounce. What difference does it make if it's fried or not? It probably undergoes some sort of heat-treatment in processing anyway. Bad oils.

    And if I hear the media cite "healthy eating" one more time as the reason for Subway's expansion and success, my head is going to explode. It's really not that hard to read ingredient lists. I really think people are just content to be ignorant. / rant

    My mother has actually sometimes tried to convince me not to eat the (healthy, primal, meat-and-vegetable) dinner I've cooked for myself, by saying, "I'll get you a Subway sandwich instead. It's healthy."

    Advertising: somehow, people fall for it.

    And in Alaska, plastered on the sides of city buses, there is a young woman, an inspiring Olympic xc skier, with potato chips, a coke and subway sandwich in a subway ad. It made me cringe, in part because of the number of young athletes that look up to her.

    I bought some organic unsweetned coconut flakes at Whole Foods. The recipe on the back of the package is for making cupcakes with the coconut and suggests topping the cupcakes with organic gummy bears. Umm . . . organic gummy bears? What's the point?
