I am a student that still lives with my parents so I feel your pain. It is truly bad when my parents cook meals for me: I am "obligated" to eat whatever they prepare. I have attempted to explain to them (to know avail) that going primal will actually benefit me. My dad has even compared my nutrition to a "fasting state." Although it seems tough now, realize that when you are living on your own, they have no say over your nutritional choices. If your parents respect your choices, they will eventually stop criticizing you. They just don't want to admit you are old enough to make your own decisions.

Well, but the problem with the parents can be a tough one. I lived with mine till I was 42, married, had children.... No decision of my own, parents don't easily take all that nonsense about beeing adult and taking your own decisions. Learn to act when they don't look. Always easier to get them accept whats done already. Luckily we don't have much problems with the PB as my parents are close to it.
Yeah parents can be tough. I'm almost 46 years old but my parents would freak if they knew how much fat I eat! Mother is completely obsessed and totally fat-phobic...oh, yes, and she believes everything she reads in the Daily Mail. Although - small miracles - I have managed to get her into using coconut oil (although she uses only the tiniest bit she possibly can).
I don't visit them too often - generally just Christmas - and just say no thanks to the carby crap. I eat the veggies and the meat - and maybe a roast potato or two (just because it's Christmas).
Mostly they visit me. I just feed them primal and wonder how long it will take them to notice that there's no pasta/potatoes/rice on their plates. Usually they just rave about how lovely my cooking is. Last time, mum noticed there was no toast with the bacon and eggs but actually just commented that it was nice to know that she didn't need the toast and felt quite satisfied without it. Otherwise she just comments about 'all that fat' as she wipes it from her chin with a smile.
I don't talk about primal eating, I just say that I don't really eat bread these days. They're always commenting on how well I look so maybe some of it will rub off on them...but they're a bit too old in the tooth. And if I'm in their house, well I suppose I just do the best I can.
