    The crazy things people say

    In a discussion on a weightlifting group on Facebook, in which I mentioned that I woke up this morning with a broken blood vessel in one eye, my second one in two weeks, some dude told me that Whole30 is a "dysfunctional and restrictive fad diet," that it's low-carb, "needlessly restrictive," filled with "energy-poor choices" that are "notorious for not being able to support a decent activity level," and -- wait for it! -- the possible cause of my recently-diagnosed hypothyroidism. This is the kind of thing that makes me regret speaking to other people, as opposed to, say, breaking a chair over their heads.
