The "no carb" thing really drives me bonkers. It's like people just can't get their head around it, they need it to fit into a little box they already think they understand.
The W30 FB page can drive me nuts, too. Particularly when people say something like "I woke up today with a 104 degree fever, chills, and hacking cough. I think this 'diet' is making me sick and I should quit". Yes, it must be that. Eating healthy is making you deathly Ill, not the severe flu that's going around. *rolls eyes*

"I could never do that" is another one. But I've also heard that when I tell people I have to give myself injections on occasions to manage my bleeding disorder. I just say "of course you could, if your health depended on it. If I don't do this I'm going to end up with a very painful injury that will take a good while to clot and a really long time to heal. I'll be at increased risk of infection to the wound because it takes longer to heal over. If I don't do it myself, the other option is sitting around in the ER for hours waiting for someone to do it for me, and that is again putting me a higher risk of infection, and with the wound being on my (insert limb here), those plastic chairs really don't help with the pain". And everyone I've had that discussion with admits they would in fact suck it up and do it themselves. W30 is no different. We just do what we have to to be healthy.

Dialog with colleague:
- Nadia, I've made fantastic caramel bars, I'll bring some for you.
- Thanks Mel, so sweet of you, but save them for your family. I don't eat sweets.
- But they are homemade! They are good for you!
- No, thanks Mel, I guess they are just less bad rather than good.
- I'll show you a recipe, they are perfectly healthy!
Turned out to be a 3 step thing: put crackers, top with butter/sugar so it forms caramel layer, top with huge layer of chocolate.
They are so perfectly healthy that I might quit Whole30 and eat them for bf, lunch and dinner
