But then I open my mouth and I tell them you know it took me 56 years to finally figure it out. The FDA and The Diet Food Industry have fed us with a bunch of lies, whether intentional or not they are lies!!! Un-Truths! Misguided? Intentional? Yes ... I climb my soap box ... then I share that I don't count calories, I don't count carbs, I don't measure my food, I still eat as much as I want, I do not use portion control, I'm still a volume eater...I am NEVER EVER hungry! I eat Lots of food, I can eat out ... even fast food!
You know you have them .. you can see the excitement ... but then when I tell them I don't eat anything made from or with WHEAT, CORN, RICE or SUGAR ... "Oh low carb... you know that light that was just in their eyes? its gone. "oh I couldn't do that"
I get so frustrated ...as soon as those words are out of my mouth ... they stop listening. I guess they were hoping for a magic pill or something.
I get a lot of "What's left? Lettuce and bacon?" and my favorite "oh it's expensive to eat that way". Then the snide remarks ... "Oh, you know Dr. Atkins died" I have to tell myself to not take it personally ... they just don't get it ... and they won't until they do. I didn't.
I have to remind myself ... who do I think I am??? Just because this is working for me doesn't mean it will work for everyone ... does it? That's right I'm special! I am special because I get it!
Okay ... Rant over ... I feel better ... well until next time!
