I am living with my folks at the moment, and all I have to say is that it has been tough staying primal 80% of the time. In one week I can manage 50-60%. I realize that I am the one responsible for my life and diet (lifestyle kind), but I seem to fall prey easily. Now the food in question isn't typical American junk, that is quite repulsive to me. No, the stuff hat my folks constantly cook up are fresh homemade pasta, fine german and spanish sausage, baguettes, french pastries and old fashioned cakes ( made with lotsa butter and whole ingredients), chocolate truffles and fine cheeses galore. Now I haven't actually gained any weight since I do IF 5-6 times a week (15-18 hours daily fasts), but it has made following Primal a little tough, and I admit, makes me feel a bit sluggish when I do indulge (not binge mind you).
What also worries me is that my folks are getting fatter ever since bringing indulging themselves. Coupled with a few bottles of whine every week, their waistlines have expanded. What should I do for myself, and for my folks?
