I've been "modeling" for 16 months now - and he see's how eating this way has improved my health - but he still wants to eat stuff that is bad for him (oreos and m&m's). Not that he eats those things on a daily basis, but still - more days than not. I want him healthy - but I also selfishly know if he was doing this with me, MY journey would be much easier. I'd not stray as often if I weren't faced with bad choices. Some people can just hold the line and not stray even when someone is handing them what used to be their favorite dessert. I'm not that person. I give in sometimes. MOSTLY I will be strong and decline - but not always.
I've also been trying to get him to not buy rum. I've told him I fear I will start to have problems with it (alcoholism runs in my family). I guess basically when it comes to food/drink he's pretty selfish. He wants to eat/drink what he likes and doesn't want to compromise. Although, since going primal, he eats what I cook and doesn't complain. He says he really enjoys what I make for dinner - but when its his turn to cook, or if he goes to the store there always is something made with grains or sugars included.
I don't know........ he's coming around, but I don't know if I will ever see him dive in completely. Right now he's sorta just dangling his feet in the water.
But - I think by refusing to eat the apple pie I have set a new boundary for him. I don't think he'll be doing that again.
