    Hey

    I'd go with trying to show your folks that you ARE eating plenty, even if you phrase it like "I want lots of veggies and sweet potatoes so I can work out / bulk up at the gym. Maybe that will sit better with them than the perception of gym = weightloss. And then enjoy those healthy, natural carbs.

    I'm a little concerned that you're concerned about fat burning whilst saying you're underweight...

    Im only on holiday with them. Im usually in control, which is why its extremely frustrating.
    What I meant Re: fat burning weas that the energy that your body primarily burns is fat, if you eat fat, or carbs if you eat carbs, and given that id gone through the transition to higher fat and low carb with the low carb flu symptoms I didnt want to undo that and have to go through the adaptation phase again. Burning fat for fuel would then leave the protein for building muscle.
    I hate the way that certain responses to my question 1) labelled me 2) assumed a lot about me 3) addressed a sensitive subject (eating disorders) as something to make a person feel worthless about, rather than approaching such a subject with at least a hint of sensitivity.
    Maybe in the future these people should get a little more information before making such unhelpful and hurtful comments.

    Sir-
    Most of these comments were made based on your writing and were made only in your best interests. I saw nothing derogatory, nothing about shame or worthlessness, merely a bunch of people trying to help. Please do not take offense at people just trying to make sure you weren't going off the Primal path in a most disastrous manner.

    I say stop vacationing with you parents. Even if they are paying for it, what type of relaxing is that. Next time stay home & enjoy yourself. Stress is not helpful.

    If you are an adult, your parents can't force you to do anything. When I'm at my parent's place, I buy my own food and prepare it myself and share whatever they want of it. I suggest you do the same, and don't make a big deal about it. If they are worried about you being underweight, you should buy and eat extra bacon and eat at least 4 eggs for breakfast, just so they know you are not starving yourself! Good luck!
