    It has been 4 months from being on here (reading rather than posting etc)

    First message left about low carbs... on a low carbs page (I believe) and got jumped on by someone judging me as a parent! as a low carber! as a meat eater! Wow. I didn't pass judgement on them so why do people think it is fine to verbally attack others who don't hold the same beliefs and views? feel really bad for coming back on now!

    Thank you.
    I was upset and couldn't sleep for a bit but had a cup of tea and take it on the chin, @Juicyj was really lovely so it wasn't until I spoke to her that I was able to sleep!

    I don't like it when people try to put us in boxes.
    The book my son was working from had :
    Fruit and veg (most healthy eat most of): included CHIPS
    Carbs: (next healthy to eat a lot of) bread, pasta, rice
    Meat: included fish (not so healthy only eat a little!
    Fat and sugar: this included all dairy products so cheese, yoghurt, butter along side sweets chocolate, cakes and biscuits!
    There was just too much to change so I skipped that page and went on to plants...

    It is heartbreaking to think this is what is being passed as "healthy" and wondering about the future health of our kids!

    My kids eat a healthy Mediterranean diet so to teach them that actually chips is more of a healthy diet... arch that will just undo all the good work I have done!

    The main thing I have learned since joining this forum is no one thing is the same for all of us and what might work for me may not be good for you it's all about learning what's good for you with regular testing but some help and advice can be a good thing .
    What you read in books and magazines is so out of date .

    Hi,

    Just seen this.. Not condoning any "judgment". Sometimes people are reading this forum from a mobile device like a phone?
    They see what they (think they) see & "knejerk" a reaction..
    That's why "memes" are so popular on media like Facebook it's savvy media manipulation for those who can't fit "war & peace on a tiny vocal communication device.. It's easy to pick up & respond on a phone... By the time a PC has booted? More thought has gone into a response... If at all...? ;)

    Stick with us. Your profile is self explanatory on an iPad.. :D

    Lol, I am on my phone! I don't have a computer or anything else ... the screen is large enough though sometimes especially last night it was struggling to load the pages... the other problem is it doesn't load other responses until you reload! This means you answer something and are always a step or 2 behind.
    The response was lovely though, and I don't believe (truly) in cutting off people. I may be angry for a while but I will always try to change opinions... which is difficult to do if you have blocked/ignore them... ;-)
