  1. While watching TV that 5-Hour Energy commercial comes on, "Eating lunch isn't hard work... so why do you feel so tired afterwards? Instead of feeling refueled and focused, you're foggy and sluggish. It's that 2:30 feeling again." And they yell at the TV, "Because you're eating crap food and your blood sugar is out of whack!!!" Then their spouse tells them that they're becoming a real diet and exercise snob. Touch´e.

    The crazy things people say

    People always ask why I have a cooler with me and I tell them that I'm transporting black market kidneys. That or urine samples.

    Need help with snacking

    Also Occupy Monsanto put out a list of GMO foods which included Lara Bars. That has kept me away from those. Like everything else, better to make your own.

    Need help with snacking

    Oh and I usually by a whole organic cooked chicken every few days and pull it apart and store it in a Tupperware in the fridge so I always have a go to emergency protein source, aside from leftovers or uncooked meat I'm planning on eating.

    Need help with snacking

    I generally don't snack but if I find myself truly hungry between meals I have a palm sized (or less serving) of chicken and a 1/4-1/2 avocado. I find that the protein fat combo usually does the trick. I work out a lot so if I feel exhausted like I really need a carb I will do the chicken with 1/2 cup sweet potatoe. I never eat fruit or nuts by themselves as a snack because you'll just be hungry for more in an hour, if not immediately after.
  6. .... They are constantly baking sweet potatoes at random intervals to make sure they are supplied for post WOD snack at all times. To quote on of my favorite (late) comedians, Mitch Hedberg, "It takes forever to cook a baked potato in a conventional oven. Sometimes I just throw one in there, even if I don't want one. Cause by the time it's done, who knows?" (Its much funnier by his delivery.)

    My mother-in-law about my friend and I who are doing Whole30, "I don't know why you guys do that to yourselves!" Two days later, "I need to get on some sort of diet or do SOMEthing! I think I'm going to go back on Atkins."
