    Friend holding a large bag of twizzlers: Want one?
    Me: No thanks.
    Friend: Why? You don't like them?
    Me: Insert 3 sentence of explanation of why I won't eat candy.
    Friend holding up twizzler: Here have just one.
    Me: No.
    Friend: wow your tough.
    Later in the afternoon. Received a text from the same friend.
    "didn't make to the gym this afternoon. I have the worst headache."

    Not quite the same but it cracked me up today. I went to lunch with a coworker/good friend. I brought mine, she was picking up hers.
    She said to me, "you know, your like a drinking buddy who's on the wagon now!" I couldn't help but laugh when I noticed she didn't order the cheeseburger and onion rings she usually gets!

    Miracle noodles have no carbs and no calories because our body doesn't recognise them as food and cannot use them. If I said to you put this gas in your car but by the way the car won't recognise it and the engine can't use it - you'd think I was mad. Yet somehow humans now think it's acceptable to eat *food* that our bodies can't use. Sorry but this is one of my pet peeves W30 is about eating real wholesome nutritious food that will nourish our bodies not 'stuff' that will provide us with absolutely nothing  so please, please no miracle noodles

    We recently had a major snow storm here, and we had a standby crew stay at the fire station for the day. (We're a volunteer department, I'm the Chief). We were getting some snacks from the grocery store to tide us over, and the people who were going shopping said' oh yeah, the Chief doesn't eat crap, what would you like?' I asked for some fruit. They came back with the usual processed garbage and a pack of green grapes and tangerines. I was happy to see by the end of the day that everyone had eaten all of the fruit and several bags of chips and other toxins remained unopened.
    I occasionally, once every couple months, will have some Chinese food. Way off the reservation, but a treat. About 15 minutes after eating it a couple weeks ago, I said to my wife 'You know, for someone who eats the way I do, eating Chinese is like cheating on your wife. You immediately regret it.'

    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?

    There's just nothing I can say to that.  Really.

    People always ask why I have a cooler with me and I tell them that I'm transporting black market kidneys.  That or urine samples.

    Just had the "that so-called Paleo thing is nonsense" conversation with a friend. She is a natural food/anti GMO proponent, but cannot and will not accept that grains were not in the hunter/gatherer diet. Well, they were certainly not a staple, which she agrees to, and they were certainly not in the forms we commonly see now, which she also agrees to. But giving them up is nonsense and a fad.
    She's an English Lit major. I have a degree in Ancient History. We both have health issues. Mine are more severe/debilitating. She is about twice my size (taller, bigger boned, more excess weight) and an authority (self-styled) on all things healthy. I am misguided.
    Do I feel superior? No, just a little frustrated. Have I told her she's wrong. No, just that her way doesn't work for me.
    I am still "misguided".
    Ok. I shall be blissfully misguided then.

    My almost 16 year old daughter is along for this Whole 30 with me. She has been an amazing help prepping food,whipping meals together,etc.
    She was in her bedroom and was about to light a really nice smelling Yankee Candle that she got for herself last month when we visited the outlet store. I walked by her room and saw her standing there, confused. She said " I just for a second thought I could not light this because it wasn't paleo".
    It was a vanilla cupcake scented candle...

    Eating dinner with someone who has successfully lost weight on a low-carb diet, they commented how she can't use lemon because it has too many carbs. They comment that we are "cheating" now by using lemon juice on baked chicken. Jicama, carrots and other veggies are off limits because they have too much sugar/carbs. But go ahead and enjoy this vegan hummus...
    She shows me her paleo indulgences book with mostly paleo cookies, cakes and smoothies. Then asks me to make a paleo bread with dinner from a recipe they have. I make it (I'm post Whole30) and it takes a day for me not to want a second piece. I explain what SWYPO is and they says, but sweets and breads are ok in moderation, right?
    They spent around $4,000 to the nutritionist for the diet plan, I just bought ISWF and the Whole30 emails.
    I eat real food. I don't have to count carbs and don't have cravings. I ate the most amazing whole30 compliant breakfast today and don't feel hungry 3 hours later. Tried to explain to DH how I felt I we had jumped on the "carrot train to crazytown," but he thought we are equally crazy.

    My closest friend and I agree on just about everything. Well, everything but food. She holds fast to the belief that fat is bad and calories mean everything.
    She's decided it's time "to start being good again." So the other night when she came over for dinner she knew I was baking salmon and had asked if I would be offended if she brought over her own sides. For many reasons, I told her I certainly wasn't offended.
    So as my family sat down to dinner we enjoyed baked salmon, confetti style faux cous cous, and asparagus cooked in ghee and fresh garlic.
    On her plate was a lovely piece of salmon and a sad little pile of plain brown rice.
    By those standards, I never want to "start being good again."
