Eating dinner with someone who has successfully lost weight on a low-carb diet, they commented how she can't use lemon because it has too many carbs. They comment that we are "cheating" now by using lemon juice on baked chicken. Jicama, carrots and other veggies are off limits because they have too much sugar/carbs. But go ahead and enjoy this vegan hummus...
She shows me her paleo indulgences book with mostly paleo cookies, cakes and smoothies. Then asks me to make a paleo bread with dinner from a recipe they have. I make it (I'm post Whole30) and it takes a day for me not to want a second piece. I explain what SWYPO is and they says, but sweets and breads are ok in moderation, right?
They spent around $4,000 to the nutritionist for the diet plan, I just bought ISWF and the Whole30 emails.
I eat real food. I don't have to count carbs and don't have cravings. I ate the most amazing whole30 compliant breakfast today and don't feel hungry 3 hours later. Tried to explain to DH how I felt I we had jumped on the "carrot train to crazytown," but he thought we are equally crazy.
