    Yeah, making poor health choices to appease other people is awesome.

      Thanks for this perspective!

      Eating more primally seems to counter 'enjoyment of regular food'. Probably all restaurants use vegetable oils in their food, the only way is to cook at home. I don't care for most restaurant food anyway (except really good steakhouses or sashimi), just enjoy the company.

        I would do this as well. If anything, you could make a list of "Will eat", "Will Not Eat", and "Will eat in moderation" and go from there. If someone would have shown up with a home made pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving, I probably would have had a slice seeing as how they made it from scratch...but there are certain things I will not fold on and am quite stubborn about (fast food being one)...

            A couple of months? Jesus. I can't stand family for more than a few hours. How do you do that?

              Special circumstances this time, a mixture of meetings, weddings to attend, chinese new year celebrations, and general visiting. It's too expensive to rent a place for a month...I do like to spend time with my siblings, differences aside. My mother is gets more difficult as she gets older.

                I don't mind homemade (non-primal) meals from scratch once in awhile. But so few people cook from scratch nowadays.
