    Another question: Why are people more concerned about what we eat when we're eating healthy? If I showed up at work in the morning with McDonalds breakfast with a soda, had Taco Bell for lunch with a soda, and then pizza for dinner - complained of a headache the next day - not a single person would mention that maybe its due to the food that I ate the prior day. But if I eat Whole30 and then complain of a headache - people are concerned that I may be missing out on a nutrient or something.

    I find it hilarious when people tout that they 'only' spend $100 a week for a family of four... I hear that all the time and the next question I ask is 'do you count all the money from eating out in that $100?' The answer is always, well no, you said 'groceries'. And I say, yes well everything that goes into my mouth, including beverages, is made out of INGREDIENTS in my kitchen... so it's not really fair to compare your $100 for a family of four, plus eating out to my '$100/week'. Duh!

    Ironic that that the white rice - though not W30 approved - is pretty much innocuous compared to the who-knows-what was in/on her meat and veg.

    The two that really get under my skin are:
     
    "You're following a fad diet." 
     
    or 
     
    "You're orthorexic"

    Father in law was looking at some FB photos of his aunties in Italy, sees a picture of his two aunties over 90 yrs of age in front of the pizza oven. He sys 'see no Paleo for them they are in front of the pizza oven everyday, they are both over 90'. U by proceeds to stay quiet. He then says 'they both have to inject themselves with insulin each day but they are over 90.....'
    Oh my gosh

    On Galentine's day (Feb 13), all my coworkers treated each other with cheesecake, fried chicken biscuits, and donuts. They all know about my W30 and never offered me any -- and they never make fun/say dumb stuff either (they're all impressed with my resolve, actually). So you can imagine my surprise when I returned to my desk after a meeting to find...
     
    A bite-sized frosted brownie.
     
    Me: "Who even put this here? Is this a joke??"
    Coworker: "It's from _________. She left one for everyone and we just didn't know what to do with it so we just left it there! I'm so sorry we tempted you!"
     
    LOL. Please. I watched them all eat chocolate-dipped cheesecake. A walmart brownie with crusty frosting would not be my undoing.

    I love my co-workers.  I really do!  Another one today, "Are you still on your diet?"  Nope!  And I never will be on a diet anytime you ask me.  
     
    I just smiled and replied that I am going to lose about 25-30 more pounds by eating nutritious food and staying active.

    That was my hubby tonight. I got on my computer and read everything I wanted to read, did everything I wanted to do, ran out of stuff to do so I got up and got the NomNomPaleo Kalua Pig in the slow cooker, loaded the dishwasher, did the hand washing, cleared off the table...
     
    I'm not even on a Whole 30! I just have energy because I have a cold and have been trying-ish to eat cleaner to reduce the waking up at night coughing annoyance. I wasn't even particularly good today (I'm looking at you, gluten free baked goods at the movie afternoon at a friend's house!) but still. I have way more energy at home than him. To be fair, my weekday job is less strenuous than his.
