    I haven't told anyone yet.

    On hubby's side, his mum is a homeopathic doctor and nateropath, and honestly, she's AWESOME when it comes to health, healing and being ruthless about your diet. On the other hand, she's sold on grains, and tries not to have too much red meat or fats.
    I'm afraid we'll tell her and she'll just shake her head and list a really complicated set of reasons why this is a bad idea....

    On my side I have a mum and dad who do WW and count points.
    She likes being able to eat crap, and still call it a diet.
    I briefly told her about how we're cutting out wheat and starches and she just said: "It's not sustainable. You'll lose weight, then start eating carbs again and balloon".
    Which is true, for her. She did Atkins, lost weight, then starting eating the same way again and just swelled up.

    I don't think she gets the whole "lifestyle change" part of it... hmm.

      Well said. I think that statement captures it perfectly.

        Why does it bewilder people that, when they get off their "get fat" diet, lose weight and then get fat again when they go back on the "get fat" diet?

          Because nom nom nom.
          The above should be viewed as complete and utter nonsense.

            Because the propaganda tells them that they will reach a point where it suddenly gets easy. Most often that point is said to be the reaching of their target weight.
