    Nadia B got a reaction from Austin in The crazy things people say   
    Co-worker: "I am going to get food, I am starving". Comes back with a bag of chips. Then he goes: "Look, guys, they have new flavour, guacamole! Wanna try?" I politely refuse. "I thought you said you CAN eat avocado" (very disappointed voice).

    I cannot imagine my life on 800-900 calories. My in-training breakfasts were regularly over 1000 (not that i would know, because i would NEVER count my calories)

    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

    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 have to share. I asked my co-worker a question and then noticed that she had her headphones on. I walked to her desk and she goes: "I am sorry, I am watching videos how to speed up metabolism". The best part? Half emtpy box of shortbread cookies in front of her
