    Thanks for the recommendation. I've tried Tinkyada rice noodles and several other brands cooked all different lengths, salted differently, lid on/off... I have come to the conclusion I just don't like rice noodles. The lasagna ones are okay, but other than that, I would rather forgo a noodle than have a rice noodle.

    I also could never pass them off as "real" noodles on the kid (3 at the time) like I can with Ancient Grains.

    For me, if my significant other didn't acknowledge his diet is crap and agree I get full control of our children's diets... It'd be a problem. I don't want his diet ruining my children's health. It'd also be a problem if he wasn't supportive of me with my diet. He's extremely supportive and it means so much to me.

    I do feel a pang of "missing out" when I make something awesome and he is unable to try it.

    However, he has a eating disorder (phobia of new foods, has safe foods), so it's a bit different than someone who chooses not to eat healthfully. He is slowly working on the disorder and not going to insist our children eat grains at each meal -- not much more I could ask for. I'd have much more trouble with someone insisting their crap diet wasn't harmful than I have with this.

    It's a phobia, an irrational fear of something. It doesn't have to make sense to you. You wouldn't go and lock someone with claustrophobia in a closet would you?

    I might, depends on the situation. My advice stands. he is not willing to face his problems and get help then get insurance on him so that you wont be stranded with a long healthy life without his support. Cold blooded it may be but you have to look after yourself and he clearly wont.

    Change can be scary. A lot of people start to ask themselves, "Who would I be if I didn't have this anymore?" and can't come up with an answer that doesn't scare the shit out of them.

    Thanks for sticking up for my fiancÚ Hanna. I think warm bear was referring to Kris' sig other who just doesn't want to live a healthy lifestyle, not my fiancÚ. At least I hope not! His eating disorder is a very real condition he can't just choose to get better from similar to someone can't just choose not to have a heart condition. With both, lifestyle modifications are necessary for healing, but simply a desire to be better is not near enough.

    I would love to go for a walk in the evenings with him, but he would rather sit in front of the tv, so I go alone.

    On vacation, I would love to do ziplines, mountain bike rides, active stuff. He would rather sit on a 4 wheeler, sit in a boat and can't do zip lines because of the weight limit. He is right at the edge of the limit. So, I sit on excursions with him because it is what we can both do. Otherwise, we do our fun things different.

    Those are the sad things that are separating us. I am getting to the point where I will start to plan my fun stuff, and he can do things alone. Why, when I work hard to get healthy, eat good, exercise and have energy, do I have to do the 'sit' stuff?! His choice to stay unhealthy, so his choice to sit alone.

    The part where I love him has kept me from doing that. But, if he loved me, he would want to take better care of himself so we can do things together.
    The other day he talked again about changing careers and going back to driving long haul big rig trucks. He stated that he is getting older and his job right now is physical and he is not sure how much longer he can do it. He is 46 years old! That is not old. His job is a lot of walking, not lifting heaving things or heavy physical stuff. It saddens me he is thinking of his future as needing to sit more. I don't know what to do.

    I just hope to be a good example and hope he changes his views. I doubt it though. Too much like his parents. Sad.

    I want to jump out of airplanes!
    I want to run a mudder this summer!
    I want to have fun and do some extreme stuff.

    Looks like I will be doing it alone......
    It sounds like it's a lot more than just food as being the issue, or maybe you guys don't have much in common. My S.O. insists on eating his rice/corn chex with rice milk in the morning, but that's okay as I can just cook something for myself. He also loves when I cook eggs and bacon so he's not so stubborn on his favorite snack. He will drink mountain dew, and I will go for coffee. But we have a lot in common that doesn't encroach on either of our lifestyle choices, such as we both enjoy hiking, going for walks, and we also enjoy watching movies and TV shows. We both want to be healthy and fit, and sometimes it's okay to go separate ways on the weekends because then we have something to chat about at dinner time. It's a little bit of both, and to be honest I'm probably the stubborn one.

    It makes me sad to see you think he doesn't love you. I don't know you guys but I would say he probably does love you but does not realize what he is doing is coming across as unloving. Sometimes counseling can be good, it can help you two facilitate discussion. I recommend it, counseling has helped me before, and poor/miss communication is a big issue-creator. Sometimes a third party to help facilitate communication is very helpful.
    Stumbled into Primal due to food allergies, and subsequent elimination of non-primal foods.

    Thanks for all the responses. I do know he loves me. We have been together for over 26 years. I started dating him when I was 15. He has been to hell and back with me, and has stuck through all my unhealthy years and all my crazy.

    It seems like he is just stuck. He is happy staying where he is. No changes. No living. He is perfectly content on the computer, watching movies and hanging out at home. He doesn't want to go and do anything that requires exertion. It is like has resigned his life to what it is.

    Makes me sad. I do fear we have grown apart, or are in the process of us growing apart. What we want for the next 20 years is completely different. Completely.

    I am at a loss at what to do.

    BTW - we have always had life insurance on each other. For more than 20 years. Just in case something happened to either of us or both, our kids would be taken care of.
