    I used to give a damn. Now I don't. I work in a bakery and have a great time making things. Won't eat any of them, of course.

    Think about how many wrong miracles people have been pitched about food and exercise.

    Just because eating real food and exercising moderately is an obvious miracle doesn't mean that when someone pitches it the BS shield doesn't come up!

    Talk softly and carry a big stick.




    (And Primal is easy for some--not for others. I'm certainly better off for giving it a shot, but it ain't easy and it ain't a miracle--not in a world of pizza and eating disorders.)

    Maybe you could invite them over for movie night and put on "Fat Head" and some snacks to nosh on, like unbreadedhot wings with blue cheese dip. You could also mention that the usual "diet plate" for a much slimmer pre-1980s (and pre-low fat/healthy grains craze) uniformly consisted of a bunless hamburger patty, cottage cheese, a few tomatoes, and diet soda.

    Honestly, if you are giving out unsolicited health advice anything less than a kick in the balls is a win. Because the kick in the crotch is what that kind of behavior calls for.

    I don't say anything about being primal either, unless people ask. Just not worth it. I called my journal on this forum 'Quietly Primal' for that reason. I'd love to get my parents on board but the response I got when I merely asked my mother to read some books about the evils of sugar and benefits of good fat really deterred me.
    What has been a bit frustrating is when people ask for info, so I send them links to MDA and so on, but they pay it absolutely no heed, yet still complain about how hard it is to look and feel good. Gah!

    If I had trouble clicking your link (here is working one I hope: Fat Head » The ‘Diet’ Meal in 1976), but that's very cool. In a similar vein, check out this timeline of heart disease: Illustrated History of Heart Disease 1825-2015 | Diet Heart Publishing.

    People knew that breads/starches were fattening, and then modern science/nutrition told us otherwise.
