MTA: because it is rare I dont have more to say
"When I got too tired to run anymore I just pretended I wasnt tired and kept running anyway" - my daughter Age 7
My mom argued with me about eating only meat (with rare exceptions) after we had just talked about how your body can syntesize sugars but not fats or proteins. It took eating a soggy salad and overcooked broccoli to shut her up.
Of course, she trains paramedics and was halfway through becoming a doctor before she had me, so she'll obviously support CW.
Does this count as a funny CW moment?
I found it via the Primal Wisdom blog - a reporter following the dietary recommendations of Tracy Anderson and Gwyneth Paltrow (brilliant, superb idea) and reporting,
So she's malnourished, exhausted, depressed, constipated and looks ill. And she's 'happier with her body than she's been in a long time' because she's thinner."Well, I'm no Gwynnie but since January I have lost a stone in weight and dropped from dress size 12 to 10. I am happier with my body than I have been for a long time.
"Those are the positives.
"On the downside I feel woozy and find it difficult to concentrate. At first I had loads of energy but now I'm always tired and am told I'm horribly grouchy to boot.
"My skin is terrible and my nails are flaking and weak. And - how can I put this - my system has become, shall we say, somewhat sluggish. Normally I'm as regular as clockwork. Not any more."
Is anyone else having a WTF? moment?
Has anyone seen those new commercials for General Mills cereals?
"The average American only gets half of the recommended servings of whole grains per day! All of General Mills cereals are a healthy and great tasting way to get the whole grains you need..."
All I could do was gape at the audacity, and scream at the TV that no one needs grains...
Then wonder if there were more primal folk out there than we thought?
lolz@the 'gwynnie' post. Holy cow.
My daughter a while back had the nerve to pipe up in (health or food tech(cooking) class, i can't remember which) about how her mum said some fats were good for you and grains weren't, and the teacher aparrently replied "yeah I know, but I'm not allowed to teach that". Which is more sad than funny, really.
If we’re not supposed to eat animals, how come they’re made out of meat? Tom Snyder
