    "Oh no, you can eat quinoa - it's not a true grain!"
    Ummm, no. Thanks for helping but no.
    It's been said but I get "so what CAN you eat?" a lot. Plus I love when people are feeling bad for my "restrictive diet" - don't get me wrong, I would love an easier way to get compliant bacon, but I don't seem to be conveying the pure decadence of what I'm eating! I had a pile of carnitas covered in guac tonight - sooo good!!

    500 calories per day? Unless I'm violently ill and sleeping all day, I'd never be able to do that. Ever. I eat at least that much at a single meal, let alone for a whol eday!
     
    Drop that guy, that's TERRIBLE advice. Ugh.

    This has happened to me today, I posted in my log, however I feel like sharing in this thread too
    I love liver and all organ meats. I am walking down the aisles of the organic store. I see this pack and get all excited.

    Conversation while paying. Cashier: "Oh your dog is gonna love them!" Me:" I don't have a dog". Akward silence. I stare at the pack. It's a dog treat. Facepalm.

    I just find the whole concept of ANYONE commenting on my food, life choices or decisions ALWAYS just plain rude.
    I do not, HAVE NOT, and WILL NOT ever feel the need to make a comment about a person's decisions - food or otherwise
    What is it with people who don't have a "basic courtesy valve" in their mouth..there are plenty of them
    I actually see it as more a case of them feeling attacked for what I have chosen to put on my plate - like it somehow reflects badly on them, therefore they feel the need to lash out with a statement that backs up their position.
    If anything, it makes me more determined - I sit there silently losing weight, gaining control over my eating while they plunge headfirst into the abyss..enjoy the trip, peeps!!!
