What's the worst paleo-SAD hypocrisy?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created September 04, 2013 at 1:11 AM

Some of us do 80-20 or 90-10, while others stick to 100 percent compliance due to sensitivities/intolerances or choice...for those of us in the more lenient group, when has that 20 or 10 percent been in sharp, hypocritical contrast to the other 80 or 90 percent?

Allow me to provide an example.

I don't need paleo for weight, or for an illness or sensitivity. It's more of a healthy way of eating for me, and I generally stick to 90-10, with some periods of strict compliance.

I went out to the gorgeous, emerald green pastures of my favorite farm to fill my cooler with raw, grassfed, Jersey cow dairy - cream, milk, and cultured butter.

On the long drive back from said bucolic wonderland, I was starving, and a Dairy Queen caught my eye. So there I was, parked in DQ, eating a sundae, with a giant cooler full of dairy in my backseat that represented the exact opposite of what DQ peddles.

Embarrassing. And very naughty.

So, is that the worst hypocrisy? Is there something you've seen/participated in that tops that?

Easy to turn down dirty old bread, but a chocolate chip cookie dessert? Be rude not to eat it!!!

More like I was sitting there eating DQ and wondered what other stories people had. Frivolous question. I'm certainly not the one to hear paleo confessions, that's for sure.

I'm not sure what the purpose of this question is. Is this meant to be a confessional for "sins", or a way to justify that those of us who stray aren't alone? Either way, it's probably healthier to just learn from our mistakes, move on, and "sin" no more.

I have a hard enough time dealing with friends who see me eat 90% (passing on all sorts of SAD goodies) and then order up a craft beer as part of my 10% and can't wrap their brains around the concept of "making choices" - I can't imagine dealing with a teenager!

Niiiiice. Those long drives are killer if you haven't planned ahead.

Ha! I've done stuff like this, too. Passed on bread and then someone waves dessert under my nose...

At dinner last night celebrating my 34th birthday, I asked the waiter not to bring bread, but I devoured the chocolate chip cookie with ice cream he brought as a complimentary dessert.

I've stopped for convenience store pizza, driving back home from Iowa City with a cooler full of grass-fed beef and lamb.

After organizing my freezer to make room for a new stash of grass fed meat, cooking some steaks for my family, I felt really hungry and ate a corn dog! The corn dogs are supposed to be a snack for my teen-ager who thinks Paleo is unhealthy. I did this knowing how toxic hypocrisy is to teens. Of course, I also made sure nobody saw me doing that!

But I still stay within about 90-10 in my diet.

Sometimes a little poison is a good thing...

Buying grassfed lamb from the farm, processed by a local butcher and then going to the big chain store and buying the cheap ground beef in the plastic tube to save a few bucks.
