When I started Primal and had success and it clicked so well for me, I was super excited to "spread the word". People reacted really weird to the no grain thing tho so I dialed down the enthusiasm. If people asked I would tell them I was eating more whole foods, cutting back on carbs. The general person seems satisfied with this answer.
I started this with my husband and he's doing pretty well - he's enjoying the benes too, tho he misses pasta/pizza more than me and will cheat occasionally. I don't care and I don't express any negativity - other than when he does cheat, he becomes a huge stink bag and I have to smell it!
I did tell a couple of close friends. Both HUGELY obsessive about exercise/calories/fat/body image. One ended up loving Primal and feels "freed" from conventional wisdom and "diets"... the other could NOT do it, she has to calculate calories and fat and percentages and feel hungry and tired in order to feel like she's getting anywhere. She kept telling me how "hard" primal was - to calculate the exact protien, fat, carb portions and calories and percentages.
So I guess if someone asks and they REALLY want to know I will give them the name of the book along with a brief description - but won't put my all into telling them cuz it seems people have to come to it on their own. They have to be open to change and the ideas presented in the books.... you gots to believe and be willing to try something other than what you've been told all your life or it won't really work.
