I have a friend who can be described as a "meat and potatoes kind of guy". His favorite foods are "goopy" (his word choice, not mine). Think: casseroles made with cream of [insert starch here]. Macaroni and cheese. Velveeta-on-white-bread sandwiches (no, really).
His 30th birthday is coming up and now he's "focused on the goal" (again - his words, not mine). He firmly believes that this will be accomplished by eating a high-fiber diet because it will make him "go" more often. I know, I know...not the best route for weight loss. But he knows his body better than anyone else, so we're all supportive. Plus, the drastic decrease in solid fats has got to do something, right?
Anyhoodle, I just got the following IM:
"all I've had today is oatmeal, a salad and an apple. oh, and fingernails."
I don't have the heart to tell him that fingernails are protein, not fiber.
