    As is POPCORN.

    Even before i swore off grains, I scoffed at the fact that popcorn has started to be labeled with "100% Whole Grains!" I mean, 1) Well, yes, DUH, and 2) ITS POPCORN!!! HOW CAN PEOPLE THINK THAT IT BEING WHOLE GRAIN MEANS ITS HEALTHY??

    I'm about to start grad school & we had our school of public health orientation yesterday....started out well, with a speech about how we're entering a wonderful field, how we're going to change so many peoples lives, how we can really make an impact on the obesity epidemic and help people stop smoking, yadda yadda...many inspirational quotes later, they serve us a boxed lunch of sandwiches, cookies, potato chips, & an apple. really? how are we supposed to "help" other people by eating this stuff?

    Another yogurt shopping one...

    Was in King Soopers (Kroger) looking through their massive yogurt selection muttering out loud "...low fat...sugar...no fat...evaporated cane juice...pectin...corn syrup..." A skinny young man (college-aged) looked at me like I was totally crazy when I exclaimed "Here's one...full fat, nothing but whole milk and the cultures!"

    At his continuing puzzled look I said "gotta have those good fats to burn fat". Since I'm still over 200 lbs at 5'5", I had to further explain that eating Primal is how I dropped over 40 lbs in 2.5 months and that it's not just the weight, it's the health of it all.

    I noticed he grabbed a jar of the same pro-biotic rich Bulgarian style yogurt I'd chosen...
    Started 7/5/11 at 274 lbs
    Now 214 -- that's 60 lbs!
    Goal 160 lbs -- last time there was in junior high!

    My roommate and I talking on the way to class one day...
    her " I love peanut butter, i'm addicted"
    me " Actually I heard its not so great for you, especially the typical store brands (jif/skippy)..."
    her "why!?"
    me (not trying to be too detailed) " Well the sugar/carbs, but they have studies on the toxins associated with peanuts"
    her "oh but they have natural sugars, like in fruit, its okay to eat" (completely ignores the toxin point)
    me "hmm yeah but they add sugar to most brands"
    her "the fat is the worst part, I need to get some fat free next time"

    I gave up after that and she changes the topic. I just don't think people really care at all. And then they complain about being fat or sick.

    More on the cereal theme: this is directly from Kellogg's website:

    Putting sugar in perspective
    Sugar in cereals – including kids’ cereals – contributes less than 5 percent of daily sugar intake,* yet it adds taste, texture and enjoyment that enable the consumption of important nutrients. The percentage of sugar consumed by kids from cereal is actually modest. For example, Kellogg’sŪ Froot LoopsŪ includes 12 grams – or 48 calories – of sugar per serving. In fact, other common breakfast foods – such as orange juice and yogurt – contain more sugar than cereal does. **

    That's right, kids. Froot Loops are HEALTHIER for you than yogurt. **facepalm**

    Ain't marketing grand?

    And the serving, if I remember correctly (former Froot Loops addict), is 1/2C, right? Most people eat about 2C. That'd be ... yeah, 48 grams, or 200 calories of sugar per morning. Nice start.

    I was just thinking the same thing. Most people's serving size is a nearly full bowl, and that's true for kids too.

    My dad made a sort of delicious sauce out of some sauted mushrooms, onion, dried tomato and Fage yogurt to go on top of some hamburgers. He was proudly showing it to my mother- who looked horrified and promptly held her arms away from her body, miming HUGE AMOUNTS OF FAT. I wanted to scream "FAT DOES NOT MAKE YOU FAT!" at her.

    ...that was of course when my father helpfully chimed in with "Oh, it's okay! The yogurt was fat free!" I still don't know whether I want to laugh or cry.

    To be fair, white rice does fall under the "pretty ok-ish carbs" umbrella, and for Celiac sufferers and other extremely gluten-intolerant folk, cross-contamination is a serious concern.
