    I'm with you. I get pretty defensive when people question me. I don't say anything to them regarding the way they choose to eat so they shouldn't care about my decisions and make comments that I don't eat "normal" or I am "weird". Very frustrating.

    I was at the Dr. discussing my cholesterol and the Dr asked if I drink milk. I said no. He said, you need to--but drink 1%!

    Best tasting soda ever is club soda + lemon juice. You can add a bit of stevia or coconut sugar to it to make it sweet - but amazing how much less sugar you need after a Whole30

    Yesterday I was filling out the paperwork for a new doctor (I'm seeing an oral surgeon next week). One of the questions was "are you on a diet?". Am I on a diet? What kind of question is that?...and from a doctor's office, no less! I mean, had they asked 'do you have any dietary restrictions?' I would understand it. Way to perpetuate the 'diet' mentality...
    I answered 'no' by the way because I am making the assumption they mean "are you eating in a certain way, temporarily" and I'm not, but really, anyone eating food is on a 'diet'. I can't wait to point it out to them when I go into the office next week. Yes, I'm going to be 'that' person.

    Yesterday, I went to a Christmas lunch party at my boyfriend's work. I wasn't expecting to get to eat anything, but they had bbq, so I just had brisket with no sauce.
    My boyfriend's coworkers, who I'm also friends with, said, "Awww, I'm sorry you can't have dessert."
    Me: "That's okay, I'd feel like crap if I ate it anyway."
    My boyfriend, who is very supportive, said: "Before you get too down on her diet, Cristina (coworker), you should know she had ribs for breakfast." I made them in my crockpot. Delicious. Thanks, PaleOMG!
    Cristina replied, "Oh, so you fatten up around Christmas too, just in a different way, right? *chuckle*"
    Me: "Haha, Actually, I've lost about 10 pounds in the past two weeks."
    Her face:

    Me (rocking a killer cold): Cough...cough...sneeze...sniffle...cough
    Roommate: Oh! Here! Take a cough drop!
    Me: Thanks, but I can't. W30 won't allow for slip-ups, regardless how small.
    Roommate: But there's no sugar in it! It's a cough drop!
    Before starting the W30, my boyfriend could down a tray of cookies at the alarming rate only equal to that of our Pit Bull, Wynnie, eating her dinner.
    Boyfriend : So, I was making the marinade for dinner tonight and before I knew it I ate 3-4 figs and 2-3 dates. I read the forum...dates are called "sugar bombs". My stomach doesn't feel so great now.
    I also agree with everyone...if I hear "Oh...so you're doing Adkins?" or "How much weight have you lost so far?" one more time, I might just let out a primal yell!

    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!!!

    Co-worker who has borrowed my copy of ISWF, but hasn't read it: "I've given up on trying to lose weight. I would have to live off of lettuce."
    Me: "No you wouldn't, have you read ANY of that book? I eat steak & eggs and good food."
    Overweight/Sedentary Co-worker who lives off of donuts & cookies: "Yeah, but that's the Atkins diet. I did Atkins for YEARS..."

    I find it easier sometimes to just say I eat Paleo, other times I say I eat a simple diet of whole, unprocessed foods. I don't mind the Paleo tag and have found that often telling somebody I eat Paleo opens up discussion cause they ask what that is. My sister has given up all red meat, pork and hardly eats any chicken or fish. Her personal trainer (that she is crushing on) is a vegan and I think that is influencing her a lot. I LOVE to say Paleo to her cause it bugs her. lol
