Just a day ago, I was telling some of my co-workers about my weekend. My boyfriend had booked a nice restaurant and made sure they had grass fed steaks, but forgot to mention my other dietary habits. So I was explain how the staff was really nice and changed things for me etc. One of my co-workers began to tell me how my diet is so unhealthy, a calorie is a calorie, sugar is sugar there aren't different kinds. Sugar isn't bad for you etc. And how I should eat large carb and sugar meals on the weekend if I don't eat them during the week.
I was like, "I don't think calorie is just a calorie and if you are interested I can site you some studies, books, and websites on way I think this way." Her response was; "I took some classes on nutrition, a calorie is a calorie, and no I am not interested."
I just said "ok", and end of conversation. I guess its an example about how even the most well meaning conversation about good restaurant service can turn into something really awkward when it involves saying something against someones else personal food beliefs. So just be careful. I wasn't even trying to sell them on primal living.
