    Being the smart-a$$ that I am, I like to ask these people this question. "Have you priced a heart attack lately? How about a stroke? The daily rate in ICU?"
     
    Husband and I have had NO medical bills (other than preventative & exams) since 2008. We take no prescription medicines. I'm 62 and he's 71. A big part is genetic, I know, but IMO, lifestyle often trumps genes.
     
    YMMV

    They also paint all humans with the same brush (cut carbs, lose weight) and they forget to mention "Cut carbs, lose your mother effing mind for 2 weeks a month, nearly get divorced, have high anxiety, lose focus, wicked headache, oh we're sorry, women actually need carbs but screw your physical needs, LOSE WEIGHT."

    A coworker brought in cupcakes and said "I'm sorry you can't have any on your program because they're made with mayonaisse."
    Side note - I work for a large pharma company in the diabetes/insulin department and at least three days a week there are sugary treats 10 feet from my desk. At our health fair the juvenile diabetes table was covered in candy and I finally had to say something! They said "well it's sugar free". I said that wouldn't really make it better ... But it's actually NOT even sugar free.
    :/

    Since the recent U.S. News, and subsequently CNN.com, article ranking paleo really low among "diets," people keep pointing this out to me.  The author of the article gave it bad marks for not being sustainable because it's too restrictive. 
     
    Better stick to something less restrictive, like Slim Fast.   
     
    I can't put enough eyeroll emoticons on this post today...

    Today my grandma told me that "Bill O'Reilly says you need to do ___ and you'll never have to diet."
     
    Regardless of your political views, I think we can all agree that Bill O'Reilly is no expert on nutrition or a healthy diet.

    I pulled out some eggs to cook for my breakfast and my mother (who is temporarily living with us) said " I would have cooked you an egg for breakfast but I thought you were avoiding dairy" It was all I could do to not burst out laughing!
