    Maybe you could actually go WITH their Christian leanings by explaining to them about how modern grains have been engineered in a lab, etc. Surely that was not in God's plan. Tell them about all the artificial colors and flavors, also created in a lab not by the Almighty. Explain to them that you are trying to eat more like Jesus would have, real whole foods.

    The book Wheat Belly by Dr. William Davis might be a place to start. It explains why modern wheat is so harmful.

    I've told them,"Is this what God would want us to eat?" they said he blesses and cleans the food.

    Umm, excuse me, I call bullshit

    Yeh I've already attempted that several times, they just nod unconsciously.

    If they wont listen to science this will never work. Bread is the staff of life and all that. Jesus broke bread and gave it to his disciples etc etc.
    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    What the F&#* is a decorum? - Mr. Anthony

    That for sure makes it impossible. They say science is for "the idiots that are trying to run away from god, they are sinful people"

    Oh boy. Those are some seriously closed minds.

    Oh my. Well, I have nothing more but to wish you a speedy trip to 18 or becoming what is called an "emancipated minor" even sooner if possible. It sounds like you could use some emancipation.

    In the meantime, do what you can quietly and try not to create pointless confrontations.

    Loneketo - you poor wee thing. We parents think that we are right most of the time - but sometimes we are not.
    I agree with above....try and keep confrontations to a minimum.
    if you need to let off steam - go and whack a tennis ball at a wall, or sprint up and down the road, get out of the house.
    perhaps you could have a conversation with them something like....Mum and Dad I love you to bits, but I do not like the way you treat me over our family beliefs. Please let up a little !!!!

    anyway good luck

    "never let the truth get in the way of a good story "

    Just tell them you're gay...I'm sure they will forget all about your eating habits.
