    The crazy things people say

    Coworker just came up to me. I'm eating half an avocado, mashed, with a bit of lime juice and salt added (it's super yum!). Coworker: You know avocados are high in cholesterol, right? (Avocados have no cholesterol, but I'm pretty sure she meant fat) Me: Well, they have healthy fats. And there's a difference between good cholesterol and bad cholesterol. Coworker: Really? Huh. I didn't know that! We've had similar conversations before about eggs.

    ~~ Whaa? I mean, insulin and estrogen are hormones that are clearly affected by food, and that's just common knowledge, right?

    Okay, I don't want to flood the threat, but this literally just happened: Coworker: I went to CVS last night to get some biotin and B12 and I also found a non-sugar coated gummy vitamin! Me (thinking hmmmm): Oh yeah? That's cool; what brand? Coworker: CVS brand, mimicking the One A Day vitamin. I asked to see the bottle and the first two ingredients are glucose syrup & sucrose!

    Oh! I need to add my own thing. When I first heard about Whole30 I ranted to my cousin and one of the things I said was "But it's not healthy to cut out entire food groups! That's the whole POINT of the food pyramid!" That was the morning of the day that I was supposed to meet with my mom's friend about Whole30, and I was planning on going over there and politely telling her that it just wasn't for me. My cousin was so confused when I came home with a ton of vegetables and meat and fruit.

    ~~~~ Oh, man, I remember going to the gym with a couple of friends in college and all of us working out for an hour or so, and then going back to the dorm and eating PIZZA. And I was so frustrated that I kept gaining weight!
