and it looks like it is working, albeit slowly.
I gave her a copy of Good Calories Bad Calories without any intro (I feel the moment I open my mouth to preach about diet, people shut down). So lately I just wait for the question to come my way when they ask about why I eat how I eat. And it seems to be much more effective, particularly if you talk like this is regular stuff, not some new radical idea. People like regular (o_O)
Anyway, I noticed she's buying more eggs and asked me how do I prepare them for breakfast. Yesterday we made dinner that did not involve pasta, rice or bread; without any comment from me. Then SHE started talking to me about how eggs are not so bad and that avoiding cholesterol isn't effective. Apparently she did start reading the book! I wanted to do a happy dance but I sat there and nodded my head in the "of course, of course" calm way.
She still eats bread and said it's too hard to give up. I told her that's ok as long it's a small portion. I think baby steps and encouragement of any positive change is going to help much more than pointing out the "wrong" stuff she's doing. What do you guys think?
This is how I got my brother, sister and father started. I left copies "Life without Bread" and GCBC at home when I visited a while back, just saying great books if you guys ever have the time. Took half a year till I got the first response from my sister. My Dad? Almost a year and half later.
No one else would get my excitement so I just wanted to share with you guys
