    She might think of them as carbs actually.

    And she's subtly trying to tell you she doesn't think low-carb, or even LOWER-carb is healthy. And she's trying to make sure you get them in a way that's "acceptable" to your diet.

    I think you might be well served by politely reminding her that while they are allowed, they should be taken in moderation and not form the bulk of one's diet.
    "The cling and a clang is the metal in my head when I walk. I hear a sort of, this tinging noise - cling clang. The cling clang. So many things happen while walking. The metal in my head clangs and clings as I walk - freaks my balance out. So the natural thought is just clogged up. Totally clogged up. So we need to unplug these dams, and make the the natural flow... It sort of freaks me out. We need to unplug the dams. You cannot stop the natural flow of thought with a cling and a clang..."

      Does your wife realise how messy death by fruit ingestion will be? I imagine a final episode of diarrhea in which you end up rupturing your bowel and bleeding to death.

      Talk to her
      Four years Primal with influences from Jaminet & Shanahan and a focus on being anti-inflammatory. Using Primal to treat CVD and prevent stents from blocking free of drugs.

      Eat creatures nose-to-tail (animal, fowl, fish, crustacea, molluscs), a large variety of vegetables (raw, cooked and fermented, including safe starches), dairy (cheese & yoghurt), occasional fruit, cocoa, turmeric & red wine

            If you don't have a dehydrator, freeze the stuff. We do this all the time and you then can blend smallish batches up for homemade-style soft serve. Use frozen bananas as the base - very creamy result. If you have a wimpy blender, spend the $$$ for a Vitamix. You will use it for a thousand other things, too.

            Can't help you with the paranoia thing.... try talking to her again.
            I have a mantra that I have spouted for years... "If I eat right, I feel right. If I feel right, I exercise right. If I exercise right, I think right. If I think right, I eat right..." Phil-SC

              I will say that I think sometimes the spouse will have a subconscious reaction when the other decides to make this kind of change. My husband did the same thing to me when I first went Primal. My weakness is sweets, I will gorge myself on sweets if they are in the house, and I keep going back for more and more until it's gone. Suffice it to say, that first week going Primal was fucking horrible. It was really hard, the cravings were REALLY BAD, I had horrible carb flu and I told him what a hard time I was having. So what does he do? He buys all kinds of yummy things, stuff to make ice cream sundaes, he bought chocolate chips to make homemade cookies, knowing that cookie dough is my kryptonite.....and he had not one time EVER made homemade cookies before. Never. So he makes the cookies, and I had to resist and it was hard but I got through it. I got to watch him make himself giant bowls of ice cream with two or three cookies in it and devour it right in front of me, every night that week (and this is someone who will have dessert maybe once a week, if that). At the end of my first week, HE MADE ANOTHER FUCKING BATCH OF HOMEMADE COOKIES!!!!!! I was so mad at him. I just couldn't believe it.

              I finally had to say something. I had a talk with him, I told him how hurt I was and that I felt like he was not only not being supportive, but that I felt like he was trying to sabotage my efforts (now, I don't think that was his intention, but I think subconsciously he wasn't liking the change, so maybe it was some kind of rebellion). I don't think he realized how upset I was until I told him, and he said he wanted to support me and that he was sorry, he didn't even realize what he was doing until I pointed it out to him.

              So anyway, maybe your wife is doing something similar? I really hope you don't honestly think that she is trying to kill you. If you do feel that way, you have much bigger problems on your hands than eating ten pieces of fruit per day, lol!!
              I think its that when we talk about all the things we cant have, it makes people think of sweets and fruits, and then it's, "hey, that doesn't sound half bad. I think I need a cookie."

                Oh my gosh! I have a hernia. Is this the first stage?

                  Great post! Gave me a good chuckle.
                  Then I read some of the responses, and wondered if you were being serious.
                  But your hernia reassures me.

                    There are a few important issues with my somewhat humorous approach. One is that cravings, such as fruit addiction, in the peak of the fruit season, are very difficult to overcome. Secondly, one's spouse has to be on board if one desires to go Primal, and is not an "enabler" that contributes to back sliding. Thirdly, don't call me Serious. I'm glad my hernia is reassuring.

                      I'm an addict too. My DH thrives on store-bought day-old goodies, which look and taste terrible, so I can usually ignore them. I asked him to keep them out of sight in the pantry. Okay, that was just for reference....

                      If you have asked her not to buy them and she's ignored you, it could be carelessnes or it could be sabotage. If it's sabotage, let the fruit collect on the counter until it begins to spoil and draw fruit flies. You may need to chew your arm for a few days until she has to throw them out. Stay out of the kitchen. Find a good book to read. Come back here and vent. Whatever you have to do!

                        I'm not going to read this thread. Your wife isn't forcing all of that fruit down your throat. If you choose to eat it, it's on you. I'd just eat your own healthy way of life and indulge in some fruit as a treat.
