tooblu96 Posted March 6, 2013 Share Posted March 6, 2013 I just had to share this. When I started my Whole30 18 days ago, a friend of mine confronted me about my choice. She stated that she was "leery" of any "diet" that limits food groups. I told her that it wasn't a diet, and my reasons behind trying (getting rid of artificial sweeteners, slaying the sugar dragon, increase my work out performance, etc). She wasn't buying, so we agreed to disagree. Interestingly... yesterday she is lamenting on facebook that she has to get rid of soy because she's having migranes. She's already allergic to nuts and eggs. I'm thinking her migranes could be due to the numerous (8+) diet cokes she drinks each day, but what do I know. She was seriously upset because she couldn't eat prepacked food anymore. She said that she had to use... gulp... OLIVE OIL. Oh no! Stop the insanity. She also said she couldn't eat any more Special K bars, rice cakes, soy patties, crackers, bread, and so on. So, here I am trying to be the supportive friend I am, I tell her that I've been eating soy free for 18 days. She says, "well, it's by choice." Ok. Maybe she'll find some new favorites. Her response, "My favorite is soy." I'm done with her. I just find it ironic that she was telling me I was going down a questionable path and now she is having to consider eating paleo... which is too expensive in her opinion.
