    The crazy things people say

    Lots of people are doing the 5:2 alternate fasting here in Sweden too. I have to say that although it is not for me, it seems to work for people who are more sedetary.

    My mum is contemplating doing a whole30 in August. Yesterday she called me. Mum: How do I get enough vitamin B if I don't eat bread??? Me: Who eats bread in nature? Only humans eat bread. Monkeys don't need bread. Bread is a highly processed food, with the B-vitamins usually added back in to compensate for that. We survived without bread for thousands of years. Just eat whole foods and you will be fine. Sigh. People really have a hard time letting go of grains.

    Peg, I also just eat what I eat and leave the rest. No need to make a big deal out of what I or others eat. I have been told to have a Diet Coke - "It has no sugar, you can have that!" Hmm, it has no sugar but it is also just a chemical concoction. I honestly would not want to pour that down my insides. But I just politely say "No thanks, I'd prefer sparkling water if you have any."
