Our body is our subconscious mind, and anybody who thinks that their conscious mind is running the show is seriously mistaken. In fact the conscious mind just may be the most narcissistic entity in the universe, it thinks it's running the show. It's not.

And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.
Not sure if this is a CW moment but didn't want to make a new thread
Was in the supermarket today and saw 'bacon pieces'. They basically looked like crispy bits of bacon. Looked at the ingredients, NO BACON IN IT AT ALL. It was made from Soy and vegetable gum with 'flavouring'. What??! It wasn't even in the vegetarian section where all that weird fake food is.
If people want bacon flavoured food, BUY BACON
Ok so I have a funny CW moment. I'm a nanny, and my boss was asking about my diet and how I lost the weight. She is a very intelligent woman and we had a really lengthy convo about primal and how bad grains and sugar and legumes are. And also about gluten and stuff. She mentioned she would like to lose a few lbs herself. She isn't overweight, but just average. So the kids tell me a few days later "mommy went on a diet" and I'm like oh yeah? And they are like "yeah she is only eating arugula for lunch and snacks and a lean cuisine for dinner. But she is throwing away half of the lean cuisine and filling it with arugula." Wtf?!?!?!;!;! My mind was boggled at this point but of course I just said oh ok cuz I'm not gonna freak out the kids. And then a few days later I notice she had some gluten free granola bars and gluten free cookies in the cabinet and I asked the girls why they had gluten free food and they said "mommy is gluten free now too just like you! " I'm like "oh no does mommy have celiac too?" And they said " no. She saw an accupuncture guy and he told her to stay away from wheat sugar and soy and legumes." I'm like "oh wow I coulda told her that for free!" They were like "we know chels, you have said that for a long time" haha. Kids are so cute. I felt like telling her that gluten free junk food is still junk food but its not my place and none of my business really. But dang people are so blind sometimes!!!!
Weathergirl: For. Real.
I told my dad I've been having super bad sugar cravings lately and he suggested I check out Breyers CarbSmart ice cream because that's what he eats.
"Ingredients: Milk, Skim Milk, Cream, Sorbitol, Polydextrose, Whey, Glycerine, Natural Flavor, Cellulose Gel, Propylene Glycol Monoesters, Mono And Diglycerides, Cellulose Gum, Carob Bean Gum, Guar Gum, Sucralose (Splenda ® Brand), Acesulfame Potassium, Carrageenan."
Uh yeah. No. Thanks, but..... No.
Lol I know I wanted some ice cream and I looked at the "no sugar added" stuff. I didn't know that meant "a bunch of alcohols and sugar substitutes added" why can't they just make a less sweet ice cream?!?!?!
Back to my boss though, I was just thinking, isn't it messed up that even if she was doing that stupid arugula diet, that she was teaching her kids that its ok to basically starve yourself and throw away half of your food!!!!?????!!!!! Wtf is that?!?!?!?!?! It makes me mad now that I think about it like that. Way to prime your pre-pubescent girls on healthy eating.
Yeah, that's really fucked up. What about that even sounds healthy? Like, even to a CW person. Maybe you can ask if she wants some meal plans/recipes since she's doing what you're doing now? Like, nice and easy, no guilt. Just "Here! Have some easy and tasty recipes that'll make it easier to meet your weight loss goal! Smiley face!" I mean, she would be dumb not to use your expertise.Back to my boss though, I was just thinking, isn't it messed up that even if she was doing that stupid arugula diet, that she was teaching her kids that its ok to basically starve yourself and throw away half of your food!!!!?????!!!!!
