I've had to explain to a few people that I've cut sugar out of my diet almost entirely. And always explain that once you do it for just a bit you don't really miss it or desire it that match and get used to it pretty quickly.

"Oh, I could never do that." Um, yes you can, you see once you do it you get used to it...like I just explained.

I hate how everyone uses their ethnic or cultural background as an excuse for not being able to eat paleo. After a while you start to realize that almost all cultures have grains as a staple of their diets so it blows their excuse right out of the H2O

That reminds me. The other day I heard someone say...
"Oh but you know I'm half Greek, so I love food."

I remembered thinking at the time what a dumb thing it is to say. You never hear anybody say, "Oh but you know I'm half Russian so I don't really like eating." or "When our family gets together we cook terrible tasting crap." or "I come from a large German family so we have a hard time finding any foods palatable."

News Flash: People like food. It's not because your culture is the only place to get decent food, or that you like food more than other people are capable of liking it. Indians like Indian food. Japanese like Japanese food. Kenyans like Kenyan food. And there are foods from your culture that don't make you fat but you've only really chosen to keep the ones that do.

Look, now you got me all worked up. I've gotta go have a drink because I'm half Irish. Then I'm going to eat a twinkie because my folks are 100% American. You know how we are about our processed, artificially flavored, and created in a lab food.

Or supports it. If almost all cultures have grains as a staple, maybe grains aren't so terrible after all? :stir:

Re: Seen in Public today

Not sure if it counts as seen in public but the three minute legs thing on the mainpage is hilarious (it's the guided assistance technology link).

Is there a thread anywhere on these boards with all these crazy pieces of "fitness" kit? I'd love to see what else is out there.

Re: Seen in Public today

Seen at the apartment grill yesterday:
Two rather large women, smoking and drinking cans of natty ice, while grilling two of the smallest chicken breasts I have ever seen. I walked up, tossed on my 2lb of burgers, set up some rings on a tree, and did ring dips and knees to elbows after running a couple of short sprints in the "fitness center." When I came back to flip the burgers they were talking about their diet.
