    A chest freezer doesn't solve everything. I spent 15 minutes digging through piles of frozen meat in mine the other day to try and find the two packages of stew meat I'd buried under all the roasts. I think I'm going to get a few plastic storage bins to try and organize the meat a little better....

    I'm playing freezer jenga right now having downsized on that appliance significantly with this move. Sigh.

    You make sure to bring your reading glasses to the supermarket so you can read all the labels carefully (while your husband stands by and rolls his eyes).

    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.

    When your son points out how lean and compliant rabbit dishes would be if you let him start keeping rabbits.
    Gotta say that was a new one for me.

    The house smells amazing on Sunday afternoon but no one gets to eat it because it's going into the freezer for later in the week.

    ...When people ask you what you want for your birthday and you wonder if asking for a 5 gallon pale of organic, cold pressed, whole kernel coconut oil is too weird of a request! I already asked my wife if I can have another slab of grass fed prime rib!!

    ... When you tell your friends you eat fat in order to lose it. And then have to tell them again when they don't believe it.
    ... When you internally judge everyone around you in the grocery store with boxes and boxes of cereal, gallons of milk, 'healthy' cookies & frozen dinners, bread, soda, etc., internally noting why each one is bad for them!
    ... When you have no patience for your friend - who falls for every "health: food fad - and all their medical complaints, completely oblivious that they're totall related.

    . . . quickly avert their eyes and change web pages when they accidentally stumble upon paleo dessert recipes.
    . . . get excited and too chatty when they see a fellow grocery shopper with grass fed beef and coconut oil in his or her basket.
    . . . develop a thick skin to righteously indignant vegans and vegetarians. Thinks to themselves, "I wish them well, but just wait until they see my new bod and energy."

    you have this conversation with the waitress at a Kountry Kitchen in rural PA while on a business road trip with a colleague after ordering a salad.
    Me: "Do you have olive oil and red wine vinegar?"
    Her: "Yes"
    Me: "Is it olive oil? I have to have olive oil. If its canola oil or some other kind of oil, It bothers my stomach a lot. Are you sure its olive oil?"
    Her: "Im pretty sure its olive oil. I can check with the cooks in the back. They would know. You want me to check?"
    Me: "Thats ok just give me the red wine vinegar. Does it have sugar in it?"
    Her: "I'll bring you the bottle" She brings me the bottle and sure enough its just regular red wine vinegar, nothing added.
    Her: "By the way, I did check with the cook. He said it is canola oil!"
    She was the sweetest most patient waitress ever!

    You attend your niece's wedding reception, get asked to help slice the wedding cake for guests, spend 15 minutes slicing and serving multiple layers of a beautiful cake with various fillings plus thick and creamy frosting, and you STILL DON'T TRY A BITE OR EVEN LICK YOUR FINGERS WHEN YOU ARE DONE SERVING THE WEDDING GUESTS!

    This thread kicks booty! I laughed out loud more than once. (The "gets mad when sees paleo pancakes marked as Whole30 approved" was my favorite.)
    Maybe me and Melissa Joulwan need to make a video called "Sh*t Whole30 girls say."

    -- they are really disappointed when spaghetti squash is out of season and thrilled when strawberries come into season
    -- they find themself standing in front of the refrigerator saying "man I wish I had a cauliflower!"
    -- an egg is warming on their counter because they are going to make mayo
