I never did buy a lot of junk food, so when the two kids who were at home told me they wanted to lose weight, they willingly agreed to not buying desserts anymore, mainly cookies and ice cream at our house. So that helped a lot.
After I went primal, both DS and DH said they were willing to go along. They didn't stick very well, but they never pressured me to buy non-primal things, or not much. DH kept wanting to get bad stuff, but I just kept saying no. He was pretty meek about it, maybe because he knew he could get his fix elsewhere.
I don't pressure him much, because he reacts badly to being pressured. I get that, because I'm the same way. I'm hoping to gradually win him over to eating better on his own. Well, I suppose that's already happening, but it is a very gradual process. Still, every improvement he makes is that much better for his health. Patience...

More and more, our life has been governed by specialists, who know too little of what lies outside their province to be able to know enough about what takes place within it.
