He's a bio major and I am not well versed in science-y stuff, so I would have a hard time explaining to him how a Whole30 (or a Primal30, in this case) would be really beneficial. I mean, I think he knows that pasta is generally not healthy. I hear it more and more in everyday conversations. People know that it makes you fat, that's for sure.
I'm not sure how to approach him with it. He very much doesn't like being told what to do and writes things off if I don't approach it properly. He has told me that he is making an effort not to write off my suggestions. Actually, I think what he said is that if he DOES write my suggestions off without discussing it, he has to do it . I forget what suggestion I made that prompted this one.
I think I'll start just by asking him what he wants to do exactly in those 30 days. Just cut out "junk"? What is "junk"? Will he drink at all (I don't drink often, so I'm fine foregoing)? Will he bake at all (homemade baked goods are his vice)? Will we avoid ordering/eating out completely? That would be pretty strict for both of us. I think I'd like to keep the weekend (gluten-free) pancakes we've been having, as that's a nice little treat to look forward to for me. I don't know if it would be enough for him.
