    Eh... that probably isn't true, though, because then all the people with celiac would've died years ago. :/
    So instead of eventually dying, I now know that I will definitely DEFINITELY die at some point.

    Yeah, this. If my chance of dying was 1 percent and now it's 6 percent, that's not really very impressive.

    Alright guys. I havent visited here in a while but I have a CW moment that has me face-desking.

    Some girl last night (pretty good shape, cardio bunny, curvy in a decent way and not in a 'rationalizing obesity' way) asked me in a text (since Im into nutrition/lifting and lost/kept off 115 pounds, etc) if sweet potatoes were good, and I gave a 'heck yea! Great nutritional starch, go for it'.

    And today she said she ate one baked one, measured and put it in her app or whatever, and was shocked..."WHY DIDN'T YOU TELL ME THERE WERE SO MANY CARBS!?"

    ... because starch =/= carbs, and I guess potatoes are made up of all fats and proteins (if she even knows what macros are..)

    Yes, you get the idea. Except that these numbers are probably 3 orders of magnitude and change higher than your real chances of dying on any given day, unless you're quite elderly, have been diagnosed with a late-stage terminal illness, or work in a field like deep sea fishing or alligator wrestling.

    I was standing in the dairy section of the grocery store while waiting for my daughter in the bathroom.
    I counted three types or brands of butter, and 34 different brands or types of margarine. Wha???
    I hate margarine; that stuff is so nasty.
    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!)

    On the fashion shoot on Thursday the girl we shot had 2 large donuts and an apple salad.

    -_-;

    She has a hot figure so I guess it works for her...

    I work in a dairy department in a grocery store.

    Story 1: A woman was asking about the difference between cage-free and organic and "certified humane" eggs. As we are talking she says, "I'm just trying to do the best I can. I was vegan for years, until my fingernails fell off."

    Story 2: A woman was asking for a specific flavor of a specific brand of yogurt for her baby. I didn't have it, but I had that same flavor as a "baby" yogurt. She looks at it and says, "Whole milk? I haven't given my baby whole milk in over a year!"

    I was in a big supermarket in Dundee today, I was looking for the offer on butter (sometimes the Kerrygold, normal price 1.60, is on at 2 for 2). The butter is in one section, the margarine is along a bit, twice as big, but between them are the "spreadable butters". If you look at the ingredients they are like buttermilk, vegetable oil, emulsifier, skim milk powder, colouring... and yes Kerrygold do one too...

    So no actual butter in the spreadable butter? Not that that would come as a surprise, though.

    Add:
    My God, this is gettin insane. In my grocery story, I saw a tub of "whole French curd cheese" ("whole" as in the whole in whole milk, so full-fat). I felt like trying it and checked the ingredients.
    The first one was skim milk.

    "Bread-Bread-Dinner
    It ain't makin' me any thinner
    I eat a sandwich for break-fast
    And then I have a sugar blast!
    I eat toasted bread for lunch
    And enjoy my mid-day crunch!
    At dinner I eat pasta
    And end my day with a sugar disasta!"

    From the How am I not starving??? thread. Enjoy the read.
