I ordered the pumpkin spice latte, but only half of the latte and "just fill the rest up with regular coffee." I figured that would dilute it enough to enjoy a subtle pumpkin flavor. Queue brains exploding all over Starbucks. I was all "Literally make a small pumpkin spice latte, pour it in a large cup....and top it off with coffee. Done." Finally, after much explanation, the guy making my coffee finally talked me into a modified pumpkin spice latte - only half of the pumpkin spice syrup. It was good, but still a little sweet for my tastes.
    Having worked at Starbucks, this shouldn't have been difficult with baristas that knew what they were doing!

    Perhaps next time, try ordering a Venti Misto with a shot of espresso and 1 (or just a half) pump of the syrup. This will give you what you're after. By default it will be made with 2%, so specify what type of milk you want! (Single venti, 1 pump PS, <milk>, cafe misto)

    This thread was one of the first I read (along with the Before/after pics!) and it gave me a headstart on just smiling and nodding at people and their diet choices and opinions. I really don't bother giving suggestions unless they're actually interested! Keep them coming.

    I'll add that I had a bit of a moment in the break room, as it's past Halloween and now there's candy everywhere. I can easily pass by them with no worries, but a coworker came in and exclaimed "Why do they do this! Bringing candy in, I shouldn't eat them!" and proceeded to do just that, picking from the bag of chocolate sweets.

    i love putting heavy cream in my coffee, but whenever i ask for it at my local coffee shop, they always look at me like i have ten heads. they probably think im weird for wanting to put that in my coffee (it has so much fat! how could you possibly want that!?), but is it possibly taboo to put something like heavy cream in coffee? like, for "coffee purists," is it offensive to put something as strong as heavy cream in coffee?

    Nope. Everything that people usually put in their coffee is either a lower-fat or synthetic approximation of cream. Cream is the original.

    Side note: My wife's friend lived in NYC for a while and loved the hot chocolate at this one particular place (a truck or cart, perhaps?). Eventually she found out it was made with equal parts half-n-half and heavy whipping cream, plus the cocoa and sweetener. It sounds delicious.

    I used to make comments like that all the time. I though it was funny because I don't appear fat. Now I don't think such a lack of self restraint is funny, I think it's sad, because that person's mind is so warped.

    Sometimes I just get really pessimistic about the SAD and CW and I don't want to laugh at these people because 1. I was like them once and 2. laughing at ignorance is one of the worst things you can do.

    I found this out the hard way. I get comments like this on my wall because it's true.

    you are under the impression that every one is unhappy with themselves and they all want to lose weight
    Well I actually believe this haha. I rarely see anyone who doesn't wanna shed a few extra pounds of body fat. It just gets in the way.

    The only people who don't wanna lose weight are the people here... you sick people wanna GAIN it back in muscle. Tsk.

    Oh definitely. I wasn't laughing (Which yeah, I guess under the 'Funny CW moments!' can be taken that way eh? Hah), more just sad for her since she's also trying to lose weight but it is slowly rising due to various things (she says). I did try to give her a bit of willpower by saying "Don't do it!" as I also walked by the bag, but on the way out she was definitely choosing something. Ah well.

    Only a few months ago I was saying the same thing when the inevitable coworker birthdays (+ cake) roll around. I had lost a bunch of weight before I started Primal, so I get the usual "But you deserve it!" comments, which I say thanks to, but still ignore the food. I was one of the people that would indulge in desserts when eating out, and inevitably encourage whoever I was with to have some too. Now I'm the one putting her foot down!

    I was one of the first people in the pantry when the announcement went out about food. My cubemate and I would be sure to let the other know if there was food about that hadn't necessarily been announced. Not too long after I started PB, I didn't even want the free pizza they were giving us for all the overtime of busy season. I still have candy on my desk they gave us in a meeting about a month ago. I just don't want it anymore.

    FYI- I discovered that 1/4 or 1/2 C of heavy cream (I use big mugs) plus cocoa (sweetened or not) and boiling water works great. It's easier than heating milk on the stove. If the cocoa isn't sweetened, a dash of vanilla is good too.

    Just got the dropped-jaw look from several people as I grabbed FOUR pieces of pizza brought in by the Home Care rep today. Considering they're about 1.5 inches wide at the crust end, that's not a lot, really --- especially when you're getting rid of the crust and only eating the tops.

    The rep kinda glared/gaped at me as I stood right there and denuded his offering (after I'd thanked him very much for lunch!)...too frickin' bad, dude!

    saw this on FitPerez:

    When baking, use mini chocolate chips that are 70% cacao instead of using big milk-chocolate chunks. You’ll save calories and gain antioxidants!
