    Catching up from the last few days ...
    Husband: I'm really not hungry enough for lunch because I haven't done anything today.
    He then ate at least four servings of a check mix thing (loaded with MSG which he knows he can react to) and a bag of Dr. Pepper jelly beans.
    Then there was the lady at the store that was overweight. Her cart had Double Stuffed Oreos and a box of diet cereal.
    Husband: but they cancel each other out!
    A friend of ours, after seeing our cart with a ton of veggies in it: man, she's really strict about your food! I'm going to go get my bachelor food ...
    He then walked to the frozen pizzas while we stocked up on meat.
    Am I the only one whose husband is serious about thinking he will keel over and die without his bread and pasta? He agrees that it worked for me and for his dad, but is convinced he would go into shock and die.

    I have to post this. It's not really something stupid that was said - rather the opposite. Nothing said and nothing stupid...for once.
    I've been paleo since Aug of 2011. I've been to see my parents (they live in FL, I live in Oregon) about 5 or 6 times since my switch because I travel to their area for work twice a year. I've been to see them three times now while on a Whole30 (I even put copies of ISWF in some stockings at the holidays this year!). Every time, it's a food battle with my mom and mostly because she likes to question me and my motives (not because she disagrees that my food is healthy). Every visit, I try to be as non-confrontational as I can and I often buy and prepare my own meals or dishes on the side.
    This past visit, I arrived and she immediately pulled out all the stuff she'd bought for me: a big container of baby greens, organic apples and blueberries, compliant chicken apple sausages, a new bottle of olive oil and avocados!! My parents don't eat ANY of these things (except olive oil). I didn't ask her to prep anything either. She just got it all right, without having to ask. All these visits and what do you know...she was paying attention!
    For dinner that night we had grass fed lamb chops, roasted veggies (in olive oil) and a greens loaded salad (my dad skipped the greens - he can't eat them for medical reasons...don't ask). No sugar. No bad oils. No grains/legumes/starches. I didn't even have to ask.
    AWESOME. Truly. (plus, they loved the dinner and are eating more like that even when I'm not around!)

    Only two days in and I already had one last night where dreamed I woke up early while we were camping and there were Hershey Kisses on the picnic table. I put three in my mouth before I realized what I was doing (this would never be something I would actually do). I chewed a bit but didn't swallow when I realized what I'd done. I spit it all out and washed my mouth out under a faucet at the edge of the campsite, when I realized that it was soy water (right...). I was SO upset I had to start over on day one. And yes, I am only on day two. I don't even eat all that much chocolate to begin with!

    While I realize that the purpose of this forum is to poke fun at "other" people who say stupid things, I must confess my own bent towards stupidity. Before starting my Whole 30 (I am on my second one; I relapsed pretty badly ) I realized how insane and pompous my behavior towards certain "unhealthy" foods was too. For instance, "Oh no, I don't eat avocados. They are too fattening. I'll just have the queso with my chips, thank you very much!" Or how about this one: "No bananas. They are too high in carbohydrates and are bad for you. I'll have a cup of ice cream instead. Oh, make that ice cream and Fritos. Yeah, that's better!" Fortunately one day, I heard myself say these things (out loud ) and then looked in the mirror and said to myself "You're an idiot".

    This is the number one response I get, Derval! Another one is..."What do you Eat?!" It always make me laugh when I get the googly eyes from the response of, "Real food." In trying to explain my Whole30 compliant coffee creamer, I had my friend ask me several times what dairy I used. I kept repeating, "Coconut milk." Finally, in exasperation, she asks, "Yeah, but isn't that milk?" Oh, boy *shaking my head*

    Now that I'm on Day 30 of my Whole30...
    Everyone and their mother: "So are you going back to eating normal tomorrow?"
    I wish people didn't constantly make me feel like they way I'm eating isn't normal.

    My other half has bad eczema on his feet which has been bothering him lately. As i sat watching him picking his feet (romantic night in!), i said "are you going to make another appointment with the doctor? Or perhaps you could do an elimination diet like i've been doing?". He replied "Well, i have been, haven't i? I eat the same dinner as you"
    Yes, dear.
    We'll just discount the porridge oats for breakfast, the pizza/burger/sandwich/sausage roll at lunch, the chocolate biscuits in your cup of tea (milk, one sugar), the bowl of ice cream with chocolate raisins after your Whole30-compliant dinner, the nightly can of beer & the smoking. Sounds like a pretty good Whole30 to me!

    What?
