Time For Another Vent…

I am low carbing because I finally found something that works for me.  I feel great, i feel healthy, I am not sickly…do not have chest pains, etc.  I think I am eating healthier than I ever have in a long time.  My diet consists of lean meats, vegetables, lots of water, some berries if I feel like eating it.  I do eat butter instead of margarine and I use different oils for cooking and for flavoring.  I have at least two salads a day and vegetables…I just do not eat the low calorie or non fat dressings.  They are loaded with sugar…I DO NOT eat…

  • sugar
  • flour
  • pasta
  • bread
  • starches

It can be boiled down to those groups.  If it falls into that group or has something from that group in it I do not want it.  Period.
That is established…hell most people know that when I say that I am low carb.  I do not see the sense in lying about being a diabetic or being allergic to this or that because that would mean that I am ashamed of what I am doing.  I am not…I love my way of eating.
So tell me this…
I am eating my lunch and someone comments that what I am doing is not healthy and that I am slowly killing myself.  This is what I was eating:

  • 1/2 rotisserie chicken (yes I ate the skin)
  • 2 cups steamed broccoli and cauliflower with melted butter (no salt…don’t have the taste for it anymore)
  • 1 liter of water
  • sugar free vanilla pudding  

So I am killing myself because I am eating butter and I ate the skin on the chicken.  I also have no bread (I guess they are saying that I am missing a grain or something). 
The person that made this comment was chowing down on this:

  • Whopper with cheese with everything on it including the BREAD
  • A Caesar side salad with 2 bags croutons (she is on a “diet” and skipped the fries, but got a extra pack of croutons)
  • A King sized Diet Coke (I guess the “diet” in Diet Coke negates all calories)
  • a slice of cheesecake (that vanilla bean one that BK sells) she needs her treat after a meal

Who has the healthier meal??  I am eating like this daily…I do not deprive myself.  She is always eating low calorie/low fat…working out at the Gym…yet she is losing NOTHING.  She tells me daily that I am unhealthy and Atkins died from his diet (the man was 72 and died from a fall and a heart attack not related to his diet) and I should be careful because that can happen to me.  Sometimes she is telling me these things while eating potato chips, or cookies, or candy, ice cream, etc.  She always has a Diet Coke in her hand (I guess that is the Diet part that she is on).
I am just fussing…i am getting to the point where I will just tell people that I am allergic to the things that I do not eat.  If I mention low carb I am then looked at like I am some kind of crazy person.  I may be crazy…but I am the one losing weight.

    I am a dieting guru, although dieting is hard for me to do. I don’t see how anyone COULD lose weight eating like she ate. No wonder she isn’t losing. Ignore her. What works for you, works for you. She’s just jealous. Seriously. Good work on the size 4. That must feel fantastic. Make sure you post pics.

    Robin,
    You should do like I do and just say forget you. (Just make sure that you don’t make a mistake and use that other F word) You should just blow it off. Who cares what that lady thinks! She is obviously “Diet” confused. How could she eat all that junk and then say that she’s on a diet. Just remember what we talked about the other day. You are still technically “smaller than” me. I told you I don’t even look at sizes smaller than 8 anymore. And to think I used to wear a 2. Maybe I should be low carbing.
