    Tveen got a reaction from Javagal78 in The crazy things people say   
    I'm studying to be a registered dietician, so bowel movements are an every day normal conversation between me and my friends.
    My favorite question has been when they ask "But how do you get fiber?? You need whole grains, you must be so constipated!!!"
    To which I respond "I've never felt so regular and normal in all my life!" Hello, vegetables?? Oh goodness...

    My favorite, from discussing with a trip leader what I'll eat while we're backpacking:
    "So what do you eat, then?"
    "Lots of meat, vegetables and healthy fats, some nuts, a lot of spices."
    "But how do you stay full? And where do you get your protein from?"
    Because pasta, tortillas, and peanut butter are just chocked full of protein.

    you have this conversation with the waitress at a Kountry Kitchen in rural PA while on a business road trip with a colleague after ordering a salad.
    Me: "Do you have olive oil and red wine vinegar?"
    Her: "Yes"
    Me: "Is it olive oil? I have to have olive oil. If its canola oil or some other kind of oil, It bothers my stomach a lot. Are you sure its olive oil?"
    Her: "Im pretty sure its olive oil. I can check with the cooks in the back. They would know. You want me to check?"
    Me: "Thats ok just give me the red wine vinegar. Does it have sugar in it?"
    Her: "I'll bring you the bottle" She brings me the bottle and sure enough its just regular red wine vinegar, nothing added.
    Her: "By the way, I did check with the cook. He said it is canola oil!"
    She was the sweetest most patient waitress ever!

    first, don't enter your food in one of the calculators. It makes you crazy, and it's not allowed during a whole30 for a reason! Your food looks fine to me. Here are the questions you should be asking: 1) do my meals fit the meal template? 2) am I unreasonably hungry between meals? If 1) is yes, and 2) is no you are all set.
