I just tell people that I spent the last 32 years learning about the SAD diet and I am unimpressed. And add that if they can't take a few hours to learn about my food beliefs then I don't want to hear their one-sided opinions. Luckily my family is quite supportive and isn't as carb addicted as most Americans, but there have been comments from some friends. I also throw in that it's a different kind of lifestyle that not everyone is "up for". It throws a little challenge to them which makes many people want to learn about it just to prove you wrong... but you're right, so really you're just tricking them into learning about your way of eating. > muwahahaha! Stick with it!!! You'll do great!!!!
