    Yeah, it's amazing.

    A few years ago I was in the states and the woman wanted to goto Cheesecake Factory (barf), so I took her. The triple heart attack fudge cake desert was so large, and soo sweet we couldn't even believe it was real. No human needs, nor should ever consume, something that sweet. It's just plain unnatural. This was like lab fructose instant diabetes sweet. My old boss in the states used to bring in homemade fudge that was the same way. Nobody else in the world does that.

    Americans taste buds are fried.

    Cheesecake Factory was my last stop before becoming primal. I had a simple dinner of salmon, roasted veggies and potatoes, and then a slice of Dulce du Leche cheesecake. I didn't even eat half the cheesecake. I came home and my skin was just crawling and I felt toxic for 2 days. It felt like "whoa...I've been poisoned." And I will tell you, at the time, I could put down some sweets, so it wasn't like a new thing to have a dessert or a bunch of sugar.

    I don't know what they put in their food- to this day, I make cheesecake and will eat it. Of all desserts you can make from scratch it is pretty primal and doesn't have a ton of sugar in it. I have no idea what the hell was in that food, but in a way, I'm glad I ate it, because it was the final sign that the foods I was eating was going to kill me. It felt like acid in my veins. Very disturbing.

    I HIGHLY suggest if you travel to America that you do not eat at chains. There are some amazing local restaurants everywhere. I mean, if you ate at Olive Garden, Appleby's and Cheesecake Factory I can see where you might assume we all lack taste buds. But every town has some local options worth trying.

    Hehe I know right? I still remember we talked about that fudge cake for like an hour afterwards; about our weird sugar rush feeling and about why anyone would serve such a crazy thing? And hell, why we ate it?

    This is just a good rule in general. Whenever I go on road trips with friends back to where I'm from, I have a rule that we don't eat at any chains during the trip.
    I wish I liked to eat liver.

    I have a friend who I used to work with, and he started going to the gas station across the street every day at lunch and buying a box of Krispy Kremes. When he first started this he was very thin, and about 3 months later he had put on a bit of weight and grown quite the set of man boobs. Freaked him out enough to stop eating them.

    Teacher: "the school goes on about how healthy it is - but have you tasted their biscuits?"

    I looked up in hope...

    "yeah, you can literally taste the butter in them." she sighed.

    So, we got the National Geographic in the mail, and on the front is a .... CUPCAKE! BUT!!!!!! It was an article on how bad sugar is for you and how much us Americans love to eat it.

    Pointedly pushed it under my daughter and husband's nose. But I must say mu DH was the one who pointed it out to me.

    Maybe... maybe people will start to believe.

    Thanks for linking to that article. On the way to the gym just now I was listening to NPR and the author was being interviewed along with another doc. Planned to buy the magazine.

    My parents were over and Mom was about to bake apple crisp. Finding only butter and not margarine, she freaked a little, and muttered under her breath that all that butter is gonna give me a heart attack. Chemical margarine? No thanks. It doesn't even taste good.

    She's also subtly suggested Weight Watchers to help me lose the baby flab. And she's also quick to tell me how fat I am, what the newest research is on health/ weight loss and trying to get me to eat fat free yogurt and Crystal Light.

    I can't really snap back at her regarding PB, as I've just started and haven't lost more than a few pounds.
    Needing some accountability, so here's my stats:
    34yrs old, 5'5"
    CW: 163lbs (07/2014)
    GW: 135lbs or less
    Eating mainly paleo, but including a bit of white rice (don't call the Paleo Police!)
