I'm a fairly thin girl, not underweight, and now that I want to cut out a majority of carbs, my husband has become worried about my health. He believes CW when it comes to bread, grain, whatever. He is convinced that we need carbs to survive. When I try to quote some of the stuff on here, like how we're actually meant to burn proteins/fats for fuel, he always has a retaliation (for the example – no...it's better for your body to burn carbs, if you burn proteins then you're hurting your body). I would tell him to read the site, but I know he wouldn't. Obviously I would like him to eat primal, but how can I at least convince him that I'm not starving myself. I'm also having a difficult time switching because he doesn't want to eat primal...so we still have bread around. That's another reason he doesn't like this lifestyle – he absolutely LOVES bread. And pasta. He doesn't like the idea of giving something like that up. So what I am doing is cutting my carbs down to 200 for a while (I can't wait until more of the world is eating primal...I'm at my parent's right now and the food they are eating is driving me CRAZY! And I can't stick to primal.) then eventually to 150, and 100. I won't go below that because I do not need to lose weight.
*sighs* Unfortunately he's in the military so I can't get him to cut down on his cardio...not that he would anyways. He has a lot of CW mindsets. I guess the main thing is that I have to be patient. At least I can get him to take herbs instead of going to the doctors for anitbiotics
Long post, I'm sorry, I needed a little outlet because everyone around me has the CW mindset(I made the mistake of telling some people at school that I don't eat grains). How do I convince my husband that I'm not killing myself, and how can I get him to join eventually?
