I think you have summarized it very well, and I agree with it all. I am quite health conscious, and as a couple we are kind of counter culture, as it’s Me trying to get HER to go the doctor! I try hard to keep my weight down, and fitting into clothes is a big motivator!
To that end I’m on a fairly low carb diet, and one day at a restaurant we often frequent, the waitress who is a friendly and funny lady made a comment to me, “so you’re trying to keep your girlish figure”, when I substituted veggies for potatoes. If only she knew that really is the reason!
