I've been reading this thread over the past few days, and found it all really funny, though being new to primal eating I thought it would be a while before I had anything to share myself. Well, as it turns out -
Last night at the church potluck after Assumption mass I scan the food table and see a few promising options. The "official cook" had made jambalaya, and though he spooned it over a dish of rice, I just went into the kitchen and helped myself to the crockpot of meat. Went back out to the food table and grabbed some deviled eggs. I wanted some veggies, but the options were green bean casserole, corn bake, or iceberg mix salad. I saw I had a bunch of jambalaya broth swimming around my plate, so I spooned onto the corner of my plate some of the lettuce. I felt very pleased.
But while I was helping myself to the lettuce, a sweet old lady came up to me and commented, "That's how you stay so thin, you eat the salad." I just smiled and said thank you, but on the inside I was going "?!?WHAT?!?" Do you not notice that 7/8 of my plate is jambalaya meat and deviled eggs? Do you think the 6 pieces of iceberg lettuce I'm putting on the side is all I'm going to eat?!
Unfortunately, I only came to primal off 2.5 weeks of the FSND Reboot, so I can't attribute my 20-pounds-in-one-month weightloss to just eating meat and fat. But, I mean, my plate of meat and eggs was right there under her nose, and she attributed my current weight to the paltry salad?
I guess it's true, CW really does put the blinders on people.
