My Primal Meanderings
my boss is all about dieting dieting dieting! today, one of her friends came in and picked up some food bar that my boss had. she looked at the label and was like "240 calories?!? holy moly!!" and my boss was like "Ya, but its like a meal!" and friend was like "Ya, but still!"
ahgghghggjfagh just eat FOOD!
That's like expecting your car to run on air. Calories = fuel!
This girl I live with is trying to lose weight and her idea of "healthy" food is so warped.
She was cooking steak and using butter to grease the pan and kept saying how unhealthy it was to be cooking steak AND doing so in butter.
She also snacks on popcorn - wtf?
Plus we were in the grocery store and she said she wanted to buy margarine instead of butter as it apparently "tastes better" - since when?!
