    JulieP757 got a reaction from Ktaylor3 in W30 Bacon   
    I found Pederson's sugar free bacon in Harris Teeter and it's surprisingly good - super expensive though.  I've purchased some before at US Wellness online and thought it was yucky.  Hope you find some you like.

    Ya, my brother is fat-phobic.  He eats toast with jelly but not butter ... does soy "chicken" ... eats low-fat Cheez-Its crackers ... etc.

    Another question: Why are people more concerned about what we eat when we're eating healthy? If I showed up at work in the morning with McDonalds breakfast with a soda, had Taco Bell for lunch with a soda, and then pizza for dinner - complained of a headache the next day - not a single person would mention that maybe its due to the food that I ate the prior day. But if I eat Whole30 and then complain of a headache - people are concerned that I may be missing out on a nutrient or something.

    My very overweight, very unhealthy, lives on fast food neighbor last night:
    I've learned that as long as you take a multi-vitamin, you can eat anything you want including fast food because the vitamin gives your body the means to deal with the toxins. The problems come when you eat the junk and DON"T take a multi-vitamin.
    I was dumbfounded.

    My mother told me this afternoon that food allergies are just a fashionable thing to have, like autism
    I have aspergers...and a wheat allergy.

    I was at a health food store looking at Vitamin B supplements. One of the ingredients was sorbitol, of all things. When I asked someone who worked there why they have to put sorbitol in a vitamin that you swallow, they said not to worry its a "good kind" of sorbitol.

    My mother asked me this morning if I was having my cholesterol checked...apparently now I'm not able to eat wheat my cholesterol must be soaring (I haven't told her about the ghee, the homemade Mayo or that I don't eat other grains either!)
    As if I don't have enough health wise to worry about just how...and no, I'm not having it checked...

    Good food is my #1 expense.  It is about priorities  I don't eat out much, so there are savings there.

    I find it hilarious when people tout that they 'only' spend $100 a week for a family of four... I hear that all the time and the next question I ask is 'do you count all the money from eating out in that $100?' The answer is always, well no, you said 'groceries'. And I say, yes well everything that goes into my mouth, including beverages, is made out of INGREDIENTS in my kitchen... so it's not really fair to compare your $100 for a family of four, plus eating out to my '$100/week'. Duh!

    I just saw an Atkins commercial that really ticked me off...it was advertising "candies" so that people who "missed indulging" on their sweets could satisfy (fall victim to) their cravings.  The commercial ended with some stupid slogan like "Cut carbs...lose weight."  Really????  I guess it's just after all I've learned about being healthy from Whole30, stuff like this just really gets under my skin.  First of all, they're wrong about cutting carbs altogether, but it's also horrible that they're pushing these sugar-alcohol laden, chemically formulated balls of garbage on these poor misguided people.  Oh, sure, you'll lose some weight, but you'll be spending some "quality" time with your toilet!  Those rotten things wreck your system.  I'd rather be pudgy than be sick from eating fake "diet" candy.  People need to wake up and educate themselves about what they're doing to their bodies. 
     
    End rant.  Thanks for reading.
