    When people tell you it's not PB that does it

    Primal Fuel
    When people tell you it's not PB that does it.
    Meaning that any benefits/changes that you've experienced going PB are written off to other lifestyle changes.

    Now of course my parents have no idea about PB and think I still eat bread for lunch, but it's still funny to see what they come up with.

    My chronic cold is gone because I blow my nose harder.
    I sleep better because I go to bed earlier. (But I also get up earlier, doesn't that balance it out?)
    I'm more energetic because of my full-time internship. Even though the job is sedentary and takes up way more time than school.

    Anything else?
    "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.

    No one has ever said that to me, actually. Just like no one has said to me, "oh, you're young and you have a good metabolism." I'm actually hoping someone DOES say that to me someday. It will be a milestone moment.

    Pretty much every time someone says something horrible like "...But it's the fat-free kind, so it's good for you!" and I have a comment back to them about not understanding what they think is healthy, I get some variation of:

    "Yeah, but you, like, work out all the time, so you can handle it!"

    I didn't realize that 2-3 hours of weights per week, total, was "working out all the time", but whatever.

    By that metric, I must poop all the time!

    Nah, that was hyperbole. I'm actually very efficient. But if I don't want to be bothered for 15 minutes I'll do some reading and not rush back to work.

    LOL, pooping 2-3 hours a week.

    Yah, I can eat 4 eggs a day now because I'm young. Grandma told me I'll get diabetes and high cholesterol when I'm older. (If the food has the same effect now, then why don't I get high cholesterol now? I'm not that active...)

    I get that too. I had a discussion with someone about how dietary cholesterol is not harmful, and how I sometimes eat 20-30 eggs per week, and their response was "well, you must burn it off or something because you are active". I guess my body uses cholesterol for fuel?

    I see this same claim on these very forums from time to time. When did cholesterol become a macronutrient?
