    I stopped discussing it last year. I will only talk about it if prodded, then I lead with no grains, no sugar, no legumes. If asked then what do you eat? I say meat, vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds in that order. Nothing processed and nothing with chemicals in it. I have to laugh when people sasy that it sounds tough. It gets real interesting when I tell them to only exercise a couple hours a week.

    I have stopped bringing it up. It's just not worth it. But if someone asks, I will talk for hours!

    stop preaching! If people are genuinely interested, they will ask serious questions, every one else is just making small talk!

    I'm going home this christmas, and I'm planning to have a talk with both my parents about primal living. It'll be interesting how they respond to it.
    What is so frustrating is that Primal IS easy. But how to get that across.
    Ancestral Health Info

    I design websites and blogs for a living. If you would like a blog or website designed by someone who understands Primal, see my web page.

    Primal Blueprint Explorer My blog for people who are not into the Grok thing. Since starting the blog, I have moved close to being Archevore instead of Primal. But Mark's Daily Apple is still the best source of information about living an ancestral lifestyle.

    Not yet 50and I remember when people could smoke anywhere from a hospital ward to an airplane. What a different world. It took time but it happened w/ tobacco and I have faith CW will go the same way. This elevator is still on the ground floor.

    People respond to information about inflammation so I describe my diet as antiinflammatory. Makes it easier to talk about classes of inflammatory foods, like grains, vegetable oils, dairy and nightshades
    Four years Primal with influences from Jaminet & Shanahan and a focus on being anti-inflammatory. Using Primal to treat CVD and prevent stents from blocking free of drugs.

    Eat creatures nose-to-tail (animal, fowl, fish, crustacea, molluscs), a large variety of vegetables (raw, cooked and fermented, including safe starches), dairy (cheese & yoghurt), occasional fruit, cocoa, turmeric & red wine

    I converted two friends, a couple. We went to brunch and I couldn't shut up about PB and GCBC. We stopped by the Strand and found the PB on discount, and my friend started reading while we walked home. They both went for it totally. They keep inviting me over for pork carnitas. The one who wanted to lose weight has lost some, and the one who wanted to improve health says he no longer has joint pain. They are hooked.

    Change is scary. Most people will not change unless they see a HUGE advantage.

    Having said that, most people are more than happy to let someone else go first. If you can show them your huge advantage, they may just follow.
