Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

I read this whole thread! I'm gonna give myself a gold star.
Fun CW conversation a few weeks ago:
Me(29, lost 30 lbs in 2 mos., RN)
Mom(54, also an RN, WW/Atkins/gastric bypass, now skinny-fat)
Dad(56, 2 heart attacks, high lipids, hypertension, joint issues, 100 lbs overweight, statined so long and so hard he's losing skeletal muscle)
They stopped by to see the kids as I was taking food off the grill. Baby back ribs, steak, sea bass, and chicken.
Dad: I haven't eaten like this in forever. (Delicately picking at the ribs)
Me: I've lost 30 pounds eating like this.
Mom: Yeah, we'll, we'll just have to see what happens to your cholesterol.
Dad: Hun, what happened to yours when you were on Atkins?
Mom: They said it wouldn't change... and it didn't...
Me: (whispering into ribs) Thirty pounds..
Not sure if this is primal funny or CW funny but the guy I am dating told me for many years he ate the skin off the chicken despite hating it because he thought the skin was the most nutrifious part. Then his sister corrected him that only vegetable skins are the healthy parts and that chicken skins are horrible for you...
He told me this bc I don't cut off the fat off of my ribeye.
Oh, and at Bareburger (a place with grassfed beef patties and you can get it wrapped in lettuce or gluten free bun) they talked about how their fries are so healthy because they only lightly fry it in CANOLA oil. ;(

Talking about desserts this thing is zero sugar AND zero carbs, how amazing!
I just hurked a little in my mouth. Jell-o is nasty enough as it is, but chem puft Jell-o takes it to a whole new level.
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"
