    criticism at workplace for diet


    anyone else get deeply criticized by some tossers at their work?

    I do. I get criticized by family too but that's a different issue.

    At work , i'm basically eating ...

    meal 2: 200g Tuna from Tin and almonds
    meal 3: chicken breast and almonds
    meal 4: chicken breast and walnuts and sometimes salad

    some critics here say crap like "that's not a fat loss diet, that's a glutton diet, you do that and you'll gain" amongst a lot of other non-sense.

    and another dude seeing what I eat noticed that i'm not eating any red meat such as pork. He goes "are u muslim?"...
    Felt like saying "no moron, i'm doing a f**** diet which doesn't involve pork"

    You should have said something like "Do you see me blowing myself up in the middle of the office?"

    I get made fun of at work alot for my eating habits and grocery bags of food I bring in.. what do I do? when someone says something, I look at them, flex the bicep and walk off.. actions speak louder than words and most of the people I work with are tubby bastards.

    I usually give them a sarcastic glancing over and then "Why don't you stick with what you're doing and I'll take my chances with my plan."

    Most of the people that say stuff like that to me are either fat w/ no muscle or little skinny people w/ no muscle.

    I just look at them and say "I care about my body and health"

    1. a container of beans/corn/onions/peppers/tomato/chicken tenderloins topped with walnuts.
    2. a sport bottle of protein powder/pure cocoa powder/walnuts/milled flax
    3. a container of salmon, egg omelet and spinach
    4. a bag full of celery and carrots to snack on at meals

    And what's the guy I relieve eatin'? A hot pocket.

    haha. you're right..
    i'm thinking similar now.. i hope i can get down to about 8 - 9% bodyfat 6 weeks from now. There's australia day river bbq for work where these tubbies bring their families. That way I can have revenge on them by showing their wives what abs really look like.

    i always thought it was red. Either way, it's quite high on saturated fat which i'm trying to minimize.

    There is nothing more disgusting to me than a fat chick eating a candybar and drinking soda.

    I just want to tell her "Thats how you got fat."

    mmmmmm

    I don't know what type of people you guys are working with, but I never get that...well, I never get it from people to my face.

    I always get this "hey, teach me how to eat like that" or "damn, I wish i had the patience to eat that way"

    or...when i occasionally eat a slice of pizza, they all look at me like...."is he really going to eat that"...lol, I love that look....

    Everybody that I work with are pretty much cool with what i eat...I even got a pot going, for 250 bucks. Whoever loses the most weight (im not in this) will win the 250 bucks. I have about 36 people participating in it.

    The way you handle things goes a long way, personality speaks more volume than words.

    They used to make a big deal because for a year I only brought in raw ground beef to eat with a spoon, raw sliced beef liver, raw chicken thighs, etc.......while people brought in ham sandwiches, etc...

    I just told em to mind their own business and they did....I f**king hate people, always asking questions and starring.....I would like people a lot better if they didn't have any tongues or eyes.

    I get the opposite from people around me usually. They tel me they don't have the willpower and admire me for what I accomplish. I have some who tease and make fun of me If I pass something up to stay on diet. But I don't diet all year round so, I get my time to eat too.

    The response, "Shut up, you're fat." works for pretty much everything.

    Them: Why do you eat so healthy?
    Me: Shut up, you're fat.

    Them: You need to learn to live a little!
    Me: Shut up, you're fat.

    Them: You're hot. I want your body.
    Me: Shut up, you're fat.

    I spend 24 hours at the firehouse with the "boys". Of nearly 70 guys I am the only one that eats like "us". Nobody really understands it, nor do they care to. I always hear the comment " Is it feeding time again"
    At home my girl thinks I am crazy and hates it cause I hardly ever eat what she eats.

    My bro is a firefighter, but most of the guys he works with understand me at least somewhat. They always try to get me to drink with them and I rarely ever do anymore. I'm sure they would give me a harder time if I worked at the station, but I don't.

    Some of them actually call me up for supplement and diet advice occasionaly...I don't think any of them will ever give up their beer, though.
