    YES - exactly that! It's like we're weird for eating actual food.

    My favorite is "well what CAN you eat"
     
    I say "meat, fish, chicken, fruit and vegetables" 
     
    Then they don't know what to say.

    You know, I've always said that the secret to looking young is a little bit of pudge. I'm willing to roll the dice though...

    I don't eat eggs at all ever as I am doing the Auto Immune Protocol. 
    I eat a regular meal for breakfast, whatever I would eat at another meal. Steak, chicken fish, fat, salad, a bunch of veggies, yum. 
    Plenty of recipes to be had on Google for Whole 30 breakfasts with no eggs. 
    Enjoy!
     
    PS I can hold a whole chicken in one hand.

    Fran, I use teeny tiny little Rubbermaid containers with red lids. Got 'em in the grocery store. When I make clarified butter, I pour some into a couple of these containers and then put them in the fridge until they are needed for going out to dinner! I'll take a photo tomorrow.

    When you are on a road trip, sipping a glass of cold silky zucchini soup, sprinkled with shredded chicken and this seems perfectly normal to you.
     
    When you travel with your own homemade ghee.
     
    When you sit in a restaurant with family, and you're not eating because you just couldn't feel sure about what they put in their food.
     
    When you stay up late cooking...all the time!

    Actual conversation between myself and two of my close girlfriends.
     
    Girl 1: My doctor is making me give up diet sodas. She thinks they may be linked to my migraines.
    Me: totally worth it - you are basically drinking a can of chemicals and there are a zillion studies that show how bad they are for you.
    Girl 1: yeah, and I read an article linking diet soda to Alzheimer's.
    Girl 2: I'd rather get Alzheimer's than give up my diet soda.
    Girl 1: I'm going to switch the diet soda for crystal lite. That's healthier

    Carla 1#/week is actually a great average, congrats!
    When I talk about the Whole30 program, I often get negative response from people who think it's too restrictive. Their answer to health and weight loss: Everything in moderation.
    I have two problems with this:
    1: Everything: Everything? Really? So a moderate amount of cocaine is alright? How about arsenic? Sure, these are obvious things, but there also are less obvious things. Bread in moderation doesn't work if you're sensitive to gluten. Milk in moderation doesn't work if you're lactose-intolerant. There are also MANY signs of inflamation that are much more subtle than all of this. And you don't know until you self-experiment. Eating everything in moderation won't teach you anything about your body.
    2. Moderation: There are no "guidelines" for moderation. If I eat sushi once a month, most people would say that's moderation. If I go to a restaurant once a month, that's still moderation. Same thing for candies, for baked good, cheeseburger, fries, chocolate, ice cream.. But if I add all these up, it's not moderation anymore. Nobody knows what "moderation" means to their body until they remove some foods from their diet, then reintroduce. Then again, we're back to W30/strict paleo.
    And just by the way, I've never seen anyone improve hormonal response, improve their digestion, their sleep, etc. just by eating everything in moderation. Health is NOT just about weight, people!

    The other one is: "Why should I deprive myself?"
    My answer: "Why do you eat food that does not nourish your body?"
    Their answer: "Because it tastes good!"
    My reply: "If your car's gas tank had taste buds and demanded lemonade instead of gasoline, would you comply?"
    Their answer: "Of course not! Cars cannot run on lemonade!"
    My reply: "Exactly. Your body cannot run on frankenfood. One of these days, it's going to crap out."
    Their answer: "My mother ate (insert crappy food here) and she lived to be 90."
    My reply: "Good for her. You are not her."
    Their answer: "Whatever."
