    I was told recently "You're just going to have to train your body to eat that kind of stuff again" when talking about not being able to tolerate gluten anymore.  As much as I miss bread...no thanks!  I'd rather not be sick all the time!!!  :-)

    I was at a party on the weekend. I had a conversation with an aquaitace.
    A - You've lost weight - you look good! What are you doing?
    Me - Thanks! I'm eating only plant and animals these days and I feel great!
    A - Oh wow! I could never do that. I enjoy my food too much!
    Me - Politely smile while thinking - what?! you don't think I enjoy my food???
    Same party - my very good friend who I left a copy of ISWF - Are you going to eat anything?
    Me - No. I really can't.
    Friend - Come on, you can break your diet just once can't you?
    Me - No. I can't (Besides all the pizza, pasta, and fried stuff did not even remotely even appeal to me - not to mention the effects it would have)

    Back story: My father has only been nagging me for the odd 26 years to lose weight. Convincing me that I should be excersising more, should be eating more fish, cut out bread [not a bad idea - I think he was onto something here!! ].
    I spoke to him over the weekend and reported that I had lost roughly 18lbs since July 1st. (I last weighed myself mid October somewheres) and that I had averaged losing about 1lb a week. (July first was my first step into Paleo type eating, and October 1st was the end of my whole 40. He had heard via my brother what I had been undertaking and thought it was a very good move on my part.
    .
    His comment was - That's much too fast! you must not be eating healthy at all!
    The man would fall off his chair if he would see how MUCH food I am eating and yet still losing (on avg) a pound a week. (We'll see what it is after my second round is finished)

    Yesterday I read this thread front to back.

    "You're so good at losing weight, you're always fluctuating."
    Said by my BFF who I don't think quite understands the incredible emotional pain that comes from food issues.

    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.

    Renee - how about everything in moderation - including moderation!
    Yep I think we've all heard about doing things in moderation. I usually ignore that comment and walk away. Clearly I'm speaking to a brick wall.

    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.

    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?
