Not much you can do, m'dear. Some people (like my own mother) just aren't willing to give up the carbs. In order to make themselves feel better about what they KNOW are bad choices, they will bad-mouth anyone they see trying to better themselves -- in any way! I'm old enough that I've had this same thing happen with educational pursuits, volunteerism, pet ownership, even my choice of television programs ("Oh, did you see "Real Skanks" last night?" "No, I was watching Discovery Health and Fitness"). Even now, when I'm trying to tell someone who's interested how I've lost over 50 pounds and have never-before-seen energy, I have Butt-in-ski's saying I've got it all wrong.
