thanks everyone, my parents agree that HFCS is bad but are not sure about sugar. I have tried to reason with them about not eating grains but so far no luck. I will continue trying to get them to read one of the many paleo books I have on my kindle, and will try to substitiute potatos and sweet potatos for grains. they don't have much problem with me eating more fat, as they think that I should gain some weight again after I lost 15 pounds, they think I am too skinny. It's the grains they are worried about, and carbohydrates. They think I'm going on Akains or something. But I will continue to try
I mentioned that i felt full but they just sadi that I can feel full with grains too, and my headaches aren't always there they apear like onece or twice a week, when I stopped eat grains they did not appear for a whole month

so I think if I can get them to read Good Calories, Bad Calories they might be convinced, thanks for all your help
Just say that you've noticed lately that you get diarrhea when you eat wheat/grains. If your parents are anything like mine, that will be much easier and less frustrating than trying to convince them to change or at the very least support and accommodate you.
Make sure they see you eating tons of veggies, and point out that your carbs and fiber come from them. Parents love seeing kids eat salad, even if half a pound of chicken is in it. Show them that you're still eating plenty, and what you're eating is healthy. Try focusing on what you are eating, and the benefits, and let the grain angle slide.
