    Roz Griffiths got a reaction from Karen in The crazy things people say   
    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?

    My mother-in-law has numerous allergies & sensitivities, including (but not limited to) dark chocolate, bananas, washing powder, hayfever, damp & strawberries "that have gone over a bit". She's recently been suffering from an all-over itchy fine rash, which she's attributing to excess washing powder deposits in her clothes. I casually remarked that sometimes an underlying & not-immediately-obvious sensitivity to wheat or gluten could make the immune system overworked & unable to fight off other allergens, "fascinating" i said... She smiled at me blankly & said "Yes, i think i'm just going to buy a new washing machine"
    Hmm

    Yep, everything homemade equals healthy by default in her world. It's only store bought cupcakes that are nasty. I wonder when the magic transformation from bad stuff into healthy food is happening? Probably when you open dry muffin mix at home and it becomes homemade
    Her best so far is "I am watching what my family eats, I even bake with Splenda!".

    My office is mostly women and there are maybe two of us who take a realistic approach to healthy eating and weight control. The other woman is a big fan of WW, but she's at least respectful of my choices and eats a balanced diet (ie, she doesn't use up all her points for a day by eating one meal of crap food). Anyway, the other women are dangerously skinny. The older ones all have serious health issues. They enjoy sitting around before most of our staff meetings one-upping each other with their latest fad diets or starvation techniques. I've never seen a group of people who get so much joy out of publicly bragging about their disordered eating.
    Recently, during one of their bonding sessions, they noticed I was sitting there and the worst of the lot of them said, "Oh Laura, we just don't know how you've managed to lose all that weight while eating as much as you do!"
    What I actually said in response, "I know! Must be some sort of black magic!"
    What I wanted to say in response, "It's amazing what can happen when your concern is health and happiness over what the ladies at the club might think if you aren't fitting into a size 0 anymore."

    I pulled out some eggs to cook for my breakfast and my mother (who is temporarily living with us) said " I would have cooked you an egg for breakfast but I thought you were avoiding dairy" It was all I could do to not burst out laughing!

    "That's ridiculous. I'm going to eat what I want and actually ENJOY my life, thanks."
    That's your choice. I'm going to enjoy all the foods I eat with actual taste, my elevated energy levels, my mental clarity, and my lack of doctor's bills!
