Since I work all day and that means lunch with co-workers, I explained that I was doing this low-carb thing because my husband is and I want to support him (which is technically why I started it again). This was a conversation that took place last week.
Co-worker: So all you're eating is chicken?
Me: Yeah, cause I can eat as much of it as I want. It doesn't have any carbs.
Co-worker: How do you know it doesn't have any carbs?
Me: Because it's just chicken. All lean meat.
Co-worker: But what if that chicken ate a lot of carbs?
Me: *incredulous pause*... It doesn't really work that way... You just eat the muscles, which are all protein.
Co-worker: Ew! You eat the muscles?!
Me: *more incredulous pause*.... Yes... That's what meat is. What did you think it was?
Co-Worker: I don't know. Just meat.
How is it possible for a woman who is almost 30 and has two kids to know so little about what she is eating?
