I was out shopping today (Christmas shopping) and I popped into the supermarket to get some butter. As I was standing in the queue, to my right I saw 3 overweight ladies scrutinizing the labels of something. As the line went down, I saw that it was a slim-fast drink. And they were talking about something, and I heard something like "...but only had 900 calories yesterday so it's ok." and they were buying diet cokes, too, because you know how they have 0 calories.
I felt really bad, because I know what it's like. I mean, I was never slim-fast or anything, but I know what it's like to have my life ruled by calories. It's not nice. I'm so grateful that now, I have a better relationship with food (not my body, but I'm a teenage girl, so y'know)
I just want to tell everyone about paleo. But I still have pounds to lose, so I can't really tell them that butter will make them feel good until I have abs or something. Besides, it's none of my business how people eat, it's just those people obviously don't have a good relationship with food.
So do you openly tell people about how you eat, and how good it makes you feel? Or do you wait until someone asks? I mean, I know it's different with family and friends, but I just felt really sorry for those people today.
