my best advice is stop trying to be evangelical. cw is so deeply entrenched and the brainwashing about "healthy grains" and "animal fat killz you dead" is impossible to combat, regardless your personal results.
i have been with my b/f 10 years. 3 years ago, i gave up grains and lost weight. in all this time, i have not had a cold, cough, sore throat or sniffle. previously, i was grossly sick and phlegmy much of the year. since january, i really have been dialing into primal, in a low-carb way. my health continues to improve. he sees it, yet will not give up his cheerios and white bread. his pot belly grows and he doesn't often sleep well. when we met he had a rock-hard 6-pack and slept like a baby. his health and physique are gradually deteriorating from decades of eating crap. this is someone i love deeply and yet cannot make him see the light. he keeps insiting he just needs smaller portions to lose weight!!!! gaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah.
just keep on your path and grow into your good health.
oh, and if people ask? usually it's more like "are you on atkins or something?", but i just tell them i gave up "white foods". close enough to true without delving into the rest.
As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.
