    No one thinks they're healthy... at least, I never did. They're just supposed to be a treat like a chocolate bar but guaranteed to be only 100 calories. But they're still a treat.

    Yeah, I know the 100 calorie pack routine. You eat one, it doesn't satisfy you on any level, so you end up eating 2 more, then grabbing a Snickers Bar.

    I'm guilty trying weight watchers a few times. Also guilty of discovering something like 100 calorie packs were 2 points, but if you ate 2 packs, only 3 points! Bonus!!

    Then I would eat a snickers bar

    Or just eat an entire bag of micro-sized Snickers Bars.

    The snacking thing drives me crazy. I've actually had people tell me that it's unsafe and unhealthy for me to not snack. They always ask "what about your blood sugar???" which is silly, because I just don't eat foods that spike my blood sugar to begin with. Strangely enough, my snack happy friends are always the ones who get incredibly grumpy and ravenous before meals, whereas I can almost always wait longer.

    I used to work in a research lab that had toddlers come in for ~30 minute experiments. I found it unbelievable that almost every mom carried around ziplock baggies full of Cheerios and crackers so that their children could eat all day long. It was hard enough to get the kids to stop eating just for the length of the actual experiment. No wonder these kids won't eat anything except chicken nuggets: they're never hungry enough to actually try something new. I know these moms think they're doing the right thing, but Cheerios are one of the worst things you can feed your child. I wish I could tell them to start introducing a wide variety of vegetables, fruits, and meats to get their palette developing, but of course I only give advice when asked for it.

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

    Co-worker: "Going to eat a bunch of cannoli on my trip"
    Me: "Just eat some juicy steaks too, it will balance out"
    Another co-worker: "You just want to do him in, don't you?"

    Co-worker on leaner muscle gain: "So what kind of food should I eat more of?"
    Me: "Protein intake should be high. Fat intake as high as you want. Enough carbs to fuel workouts and recovery"
    Co-worker: "...Wait so I should eat a lot of fat?"
    Me: "It won't hurt. Just keep the protein high, and eat enough carbs too."
    Co-worker: "But fat will make me fat"
    Me: "Calories make people fat. Fat doesn't make people fat."
    Co-worker: "...It doesn't?!"

    EMT going to Paramedic school...

    Unless you are in emergency medicine, you truly cannot comprehend how the US is sending us straight to hell in a big white box with lights on it (mine is actually red, but that's okay).

    Sometimes, I will tell my pts in the ambulance (ambo) about primal. I've lost lots of weight, pre-diabetes symptoms go down, healthy blood, etc, etc.

    It really depends upon how scared they are as to whether they listen or not. I've talked to my colleagues, too, but for a couple of exceptions, it falls on deaf (dead?) ears.

    Went to the Maryland state Firemen's Association conference in Ocean City. I have never seen so many fat firemen. Sad, so so sad. My friend (primal... I brought her over, thank God) and I marveled how most of these guys don't keel over during a fire from heat induced heart attack... ultimately induced by too much sugar and grains (firehouse spaghetti dinners with garlic bread and badly over cooked vegetables)...

    sigh.

    O.P.U.S. here (Old Paramedic Under Stress). Spent almost 20 years in EMS working 911 and offshore/overseas and you are right.

    I started back in 1975 before there were paramedics in our part of Texas. We might have an occasional 300 pounder patient, once a month or so. 400 and above were a once a year thing.

    But then HFCS, fake oils, etc, started coming out and the average patient weight continues to go up to the point where large EMS services have special "bariatric" ambulances with stretchers with capacities up to 1000 lbs, winches, hydraulic ramps.



    The difference between now and then? The rampant spread of CW wisdom, dependence on CW medicine to solve all ills, well, y'all know the story.

    My personal best when I was an EMT? Patient weighed 526 lbs. Add the weight of the stretcher, that put us over 600 lbs. None of this fancy, smancy, roll in/roll out stuff, we had to dead lift the stretcher into the back of the unit....just the two of us.

    Surprised I still have an intact spine left after all those years.
