    "I could never give up bread/cakes/protein shakes/add any non-compliant food here" - Pretty much anyone.
    Yes, you could. You might not want to though.

    "I should not have told you what was in the stew, then you would have eaten it" - My mom after I said no thanks to a beef stew with red wine and non-compliant broth in it.
    No I wouldn't.

    "Why are you still trying to lose weight, you're already married?" - A co-worker of mine.
    I wasn't trying to lose weight before the wedding, I'm not trying to lose weight now and seriously, WTF?!

    "Sorry you couldn't join in on our coffee break, but there is only cupcakes and cinnamon buns, no carrots" - Another co-worker.
    Well, I can still join the coffee break and enjoy my tea and the company (of other, nicer, co-workers). No cupcakes or carrots needed.

    I also managed to upset a friend of mine when she first asked me if I wanted to join a wine-and-cheese-party and shortly thereafter if I wanted to hang out and have some wine and chat. I said that I gladly join both the party and the hangout, but that I'd pass on the food and wine (just so she would know she wouldn't have to get any for me). She sourly told me "Well, just forget about it then" and when I asked her why she was so upset she said that it made her sad/angry when I said no to every suggestion she had made. I still really don't understand the problem, I just said no to the food, not the company (which I thought I made clear I was really looking forward to).

    My almost 16 year old daughter is along for this Whole 30 with me. She has been an amazing help prepping food,whipping meals together,etc.
    She was in her bedroom and was about to light a really nice smelling Yankee Candle that she got for herself last month when we visited the outlet store. I walked by her room and saw her standing there, confused. She said " I just for a second thought I could not light this because it wasn't paleo".
    It was a vanilla cupcake scented candle...

    You know, I was reading this the other day and I felt a bit embarrassed - I don't want to act like I'm better than everyone else just because I've eliminated things from my diet. I don't want to look at what other people are eating (just like I don't want them to look at what I'm eating) and judge them. Everyone has their own journey, I thought!
    Then my sister asked me if the reason my boyfriend (who is on whole30 with me) has a bit of a cold is 'because he's not getting enough of something?'. Uh, no. Pretty sure we're eating more nutrient-rich food than we ever before.
    Then asked me at least three times if I've lost weight. Well, yes, and I'm happy about it, but that's not the point.
