I had an uncomfortable conversation with the GF a couple days ago. We were making dinner and she made a veggie stir fry and couscous. I cooked up a pound of ground turkey with a variety of spices and vinegar and ate a 3 portion plate of the 3 items. Then two hours later I finished the turkey.
At the Wii later, she made a couple statements such as... That can't be good for you. That's a lot of meat in one sitting. When I told her that I nearly always pack a full pound of meat for my lunches at work, she said that's not good for digestion.
I was a bit floored. I was surprised she wasn't very trusting of my nutritional knowledge at that moment, despite being healthy as a horse, despite how much I talk about it.
I realize that I have not done that very often in front of her, though - cooking a pound of meat and eating it, so maybe she was shocked to find out that I do this regularly. I think if I tried to tell the average person I have met that I eat five meals a day, two of which contain a half pound of meat, always, they wouldn't believe me.
A couple days later I told her that it's important to me that she believe that I have a good diet, but it's ok if she disagrees. I would be willing to get cholesterol tests and whatnot if she was curious. She seemed to concede, but I am wondering if it will come up again. I widely do not comment on her diet or exercise, but she knows I think strength training and protein consumption is important for balance.

I looked in the mirror this morning and I thought I looked leaner. I don't mind looking leaner, but I don't want to lose weight.
