so after reading just about this whole thread i decided to reply. just a sidenote, reading this thread sounds like its a bunch of recovering ______aholics. like just replace grains with any drug and it sounds like we are in recovery LOL esp when it goes off on some tangent about what food we miss or how we used to eat this or that haha. it literally sounds like an addiction support group and a bunch of addicts about to relapse. i know addiction isnt funny, its just the nature of the thread thats hilarious. and i truly honestly believe grains and sugar are absolutely addictive substances. anyways, just a little Cw funny moment i had on facebook...
me:you can get just as much fiber from strawberries as oatmeal!
my dumbass aunt: not true...strawberries only have 3 grams of fiber per cup where oatmeal has 4 grams per 1/2 cup. i know this because oatmeal is one of the ways my dr. says i HAVE to get fiber. I like the quaker oatmeal best.
me:the only thing oatmeal is good for is spiking your bloodsugar. you can get all the fiber you "have to have" from fruits and vegies.
my dumbass aunt: ...hasnt responded yet...
UGH this is the one who got in my face SCREAMING at me because she will die and get a diverticulitis attack if she doesnt eat her dr. prescribed fiber one cereal every morning. she told me her doctor actually told her that if she wanted to get fiber from veggies, she would have to eat an exorbitant amount that would be impossible to eat.
UGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! whatever....i will see her this weekend and i am now 30 lbs lighter than the last time she saw me and she is 5'0 and about 250 lbs...but she does EVERYTHING her dumbass dr tells her to be "healthy" hmmm go figure!
