    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!

    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.

    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.

    Just got this one:
     
    "Beer is healthy.  They say it's the best thing you can have if you're doing heavy training."
     
    There's just nothing I can say to that.  Really.

    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.

    The most common one is "So, you're on that caveman diet?" I used to clarify how this is different, but now I find it's easier to just smile and nod. It's like when an acquaintance asks "How are you?" They don't really want the full, accurate answer. They want to hear "I'm fine, and you?" If it's a close friend or family member, and they are genuinely interested in the Whole30, I'll share more information. But the casual questions get casual responses.

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

    Today my grandma told me that "Bill O'Reilly says you need to do ___ and you'll never have to diet."
     
    Regardless of your political views, I think we can all agree that Bill O'Reilly is no expert on nutrition or a healthy diet.
