Foodlady, What you were saying earlier about having TOM and feeling like your blood sugar was way down. Part of what I have to fight is keeping my blood sugar at an even level. I have to eat on time or I've noticed the same feeling as you. Some people can wait a long while to eat but I cannot or I start feeling sick and get a headache. Even if you are not hungry, by the time you finish cooking, usually you will be hungry then. If not, save it until you are hungry but the good food will be there instead of the bad stuff.

Meme, so true. The cinnabon craving was Pinterest's fault, though.

Will girl, Your right that most people think that those huge stuffed (high starch) baked potatoes are good for them. I've seen people eat that and nothing else for a meal and they think it's healthy.

Guilty of the above, and worrying there was too much butter/sour cream on it.

It's funny how the people who tell you to exercise instead of doing low-carb need to lose 30 pounds themselves.

Food Lady, It's that old adage, Don't do as I do, do as I say do....

There comes a point when (most) people stop telling you you are eating all the wrong things because visible results speak volumes. Most people won't try to argue with success even when it makes no sense to them.

I say "most" because there are always going to be people who cannot process the truth even when it hits them over the head. In my life, my mother is the only one left who doesn't "get" that I am living a very healthy lifestyle.

No one else in my life is willing to eat anywhere close to as healthy as I do but I find it interesting that my sort of vegetarian cousin (no red meat, but occasionally poultry) has admitted a few times that she should eat the way I do...

A vegetarian once told me he was against my way of eating because he rejects all extremism. I didn't go there but how the hell is his way of eating not extreme? Mehhh.

I made this at a pizza party with two of my carb loving friends who made whole wheat pizza crusts, and my cali crust was devoured by them, while the whole wheat pizzas grew cold. It's seriously good. Make sure to get as much moisture out of the cali as possible.

I have a whole pinterest board dedicated to high carb foods. I just like looking at them and have convinced myself that I will make them for my non lowcarb boyfriend for his birthday. Don't know if that's going to happen!

BTW, found this: Low Carb "Cinnabon" Sweet Rolls (Induction Friendly)

Please don't judge all of us by his nonsensical logic. Some of us are normal. Well, mostly normal.

Don't get me wrong either I have nothing against people being vegetarian for whatever reason they do it but I still think he was kinda throwing stones from a glass house.

I always say that I cannot criticize anyone who eats meat. I can be at peace with someone who's different than me.

Met with couple of friends tonight and we visited another friend at his place.

He had a large bowl of potato chips on the table.

I politely said no thank you.

One friend said "one chip won't kill you" and then shortly after the other one said "yeah, it's like your diet has become a religion or something".

I didn't want to go there so I just ignored it and opened my Pepsi Max.

Anyway one of the guys said "I'll just have a little taste".

About half an hour later when he had finished half the bowl he said "I need to stop already" with a frustrating tone in his voice.

That's when I said: "This is why it has to be a religion".

I haven't really looked at it that way before though... but somehow it felt fitting in this context.

This time they didn't respond to my comment.

That's the right attitude.

There are some vegetarians out there kinda on a war mission but from my experience most are not like that and don't judge others for different choices.

Honestly, I am thinking about going back. It's just that I see raw meat and say "ewww." I do miss all kinds of seafood, though.

People who make comments like, "one won't kill you", demonstrate a distinct lack of knowledge and it is a clue for me to realize there is no teaching how wrong that statement is because it would take a lot of explanation. You had someone demonstrate for you and then you made your point. AWESOME!!!

A friend at work is "trying to eat healthy" - last night for work she brought a special K bar, fruit and was praising a new "healthy" restaurant in the next town over that has an awesome crossiant (sp) sandwich with BAKED chips and the desserts were 'to die for' !!!

I just walked away ........ poor thing .

It astounds me that most people trying to diet today are making all the same mistakes I did decades ago. Over & over again. Don't they know how to Google? lol...

It's something we all share in common, so it's an easy topic of conversation when you run out of other things to discuss.

I had to kill 1.5 hours yesterday in Costco while my car was having some work done. I entertained myself by looking into other people's carts in an effort to find a person that looked like a low carb. Came up zero. Except mine which had avocados and hwc and that was all.

And it wasn't just carts with a few carby foods but rather mountains of it and very little real food! Carbs still rule in my neck of the woods.

I see it as my job to overcome these social situations. These are good friends of mine and I think in this case they don't mean to sabotage but yes perhaps it's a lack of understanding. I haven't really opened up about my level of carb addiction.

They have known about me eating this way from the start though so I wonder why I'm getting comments like these now. I think maybe because I have reached my goal. It's easier for people to understand diets than lifestyle changes. The whole "you're thin so you don't have to be so hard on yourself" thinking.

Yes, and throughout most of history food made the difference between starvation and survival. Now we live in a world where many people go hungry while many of us suffer from too much crappy food.

I have a book from the library that I need to return, but have thought to have another look at it first. The Table Comes First: Family, France and the Meaning of Food, by Adam Copnik. The idea of the title is that the first piece of furniture a young couple gets should be a table. The table is like the hearth, it is the place the family gathers around.

He also asks on page 4, Why DO we care so much about our food?

Stay tuned for second installment . . . . .

There is something to be said for being grateful we have food at all, but gratitude for this one body I have dictates I should not just eat whatever is put before ne in the name of thankfulness, since I do have a choice. There is something called stewardship.

Well that's a old tradition from back when all food was real food so you can't really compare it with the complex modern way of eating.

The aspect about the "one won't kill you" statement that gets me is the idea that someone else is going to decide for you what that one thing is.

Eating is pretty personal. Who are YOU to decide which ONE of those things I will eat? Unless I've asked you, why do you have an opinion about it at all?
