You are definitely not alone in this.
Ever since I started reading about paleo and primal, I have become very distrustful of the government and the medical system as well. Every time I get one of the repulsive emails from Kaiser saying "It's January, time to lose weight: Healthy Pasta Recipes!" I develop a twitch in my eye muscles. >.>
I've become that person who tries to tell people that animal fat isn't bad, that fiber isn't required for regularity, that grains are fillers to keep us complacent, that sell by and expiration dates are shortened to make us buy more quickly. And if calcium from milk is so mandatory, why are we the only species on the planet that consumes it after childhood, and why do we have the highest milk consumption yet also the highest osteoporosis numbers in the world? And why... and why... And and and?!
Going out to eat is a chore, social events are a nightmare, where I am caught between people pitying me and a sometimes irresistible urge to binge because the bad foods smell so good. I can only resist by reminding myself of how evil and insidious it all is. I can't stand to eat poultry anywhere unless I know the source, ditto pork.
I am constantly judged by everyone I know about how I eat, way more than I ever was when I was shoveling down fast food and endless soda. >.< And don't even bring up the fact that I don't drink alcohol anymore, that is just TOO WEIRD.
Has it ruined my life? Sometimes I think it has, but I am grateful for it. Better to see things as they really are than continue to drink the literal and figurative kool-aid.
