    sjosey77 got a reaction from jennor in The crazy things people say   
    I guess the fact that I was eating a ton of veggies made a female coworker ask, "Are you eating for you and the baby?"
     
    First of all, I AM NOT PREGNANT, nor do I look pregnant.  
    Second: I would never say that to another female even if she was pregnant. 
    Third: We are not even friends so she has no reason to speak to me as if it is ok to say whatever is on her mind.
    Four: She is much larger than me (I know petty but she just called me pregnant)
    Fifth: It took everything I had not to say a snarky comment back about her health. (The comment was incase you were wondering , "Gee, I guess we all can't have your girlish figure and be as fit as you while eating that"  
     
    Rant over.

    Ready for another one? This is a conversation that I actually had at work today. I am still confused by it.
    Coworker: What are you having for dinner?
    Ali: Meatloaf.
    Coworker: How can you have meatloaf?
    Ali: ... because it is a loaf made of meat? Also veggies.
    Coworker: No, I mean... you can't have meatloaf without oats.
    Ali: I would hazard a guess that you can, since it is in fact called a meat loaf and not an oat loaf. (Oat loaf would be a great band name.)
    Coworker: Well... but you can't have ketchup.
    Ali: I can if there are no sugar and no additives.
    Coworker: Where did you possibly find ketchup without sugar?
    Ali: Oh, I made some.
    Coworker: YOU CAN'T MAKE KETCHUP.
    Ali: ... yes you can.
    Coworker: HOW?
    Ali: I found a recipe on the internet.
    Coworker: YOU CAN'T FIND A RECIPE FOR KETCHUP ON THE INTERNET.
    Ali: ... there you go again. This is a thing I have done. It occurred in the past. It has already happened.
    Her tone was seriously as though I had stated I found a recipe for the philosopher's stone on the internet. KETCHUP: ONE OF THE LOST WONDERS OF THE ANCIENT WORLD, you guys.

    "I just don't understand why you would do that to yourself!" This was uttered last night by a colleague who trained 6 days a week for a year, and barely drank any alcohol in that time, preparing for an Ironman. If she doesn't understand, who will!
    Oh, and my best friend freaked out and practically threw a tantrum today when I said I won't be drinking at her birthday gathering next week. Good to know I'm such bad company sober!

    You can get a steak Cooked with no butter, no oil. They have a healthy options menu and it's either cooked with olive oil or nothing, I can't remember. And the broccoli is actually just plain steamed - no oil, butter or seasoning - but make sure you are ordering from the healthy choice section.

    Just like a square is a rectangle but a rectangle is not necessarily a square. So grains are carbs but carbs are not necessarily grains. Why is this such a hard concept to grasp?

    I had this discussion with a friend of mine
     
    Friend - Well it's not healthy not to eat carbs.  Our bodies need carbs.
     
    Me - Oh I couldn't agree with you more.  Definitely our bodies need carbs
     
    Friend - but then why are you cutting them out if you feel that way
     
    Me - Oh but I haven't cut them out.  I eat plenty of them. 
     
    Friend - But you cut out pasta and bread - how can you be eating carbs?
     
    Me - I eat sweet potato, beets, squashes, celery root, parsnips - these are all carbs.
     
    Friend - no they are not - they're vegetables!
     
    Me - Mental Facepalm - lets' just call them carby vegetables.

    "salad is not a food!"
    wha-what? I still wonder what they think salad is.
    One of my favorites was a vegetarian co-worker who was drinking a Diet coke and eating Fritos and a hostess cupcake told me that the grassfed steak on my salad would give me colon cancer. I looked at her lunch and then at mine and said "that is a risk I am willing to take."
