    Obviously a paleo diet is more restrictive than a normal diet, but it is not restrictive at all. You must be eating an incredibly small range of foods if you could ever find meat, eggs, seafood, vegetables and fruit boring.

    Why not offer to cook him a meal and really go to town? Once he tastes for himself how delicious the food is and feels how satisfying it is then perhaps he'll change his mind.

    Otherwise, it's his funeral!

    and I'd just say fine, go on poisoning yourself and be done with it. If only bad diets worked faster. I often say the same about smoking.

    Thanks for sharing that Facebook page...AMAZING. I need to push myself out of the "plain slab of meat/fish/fowl and two sides of veggies" rut I am in.

    Long ago I realized that almost everything I ate could be described as bread, cheese and tomatoes. Burritos: flour tortilla (bread), cheese, salsa (tomatoes) and beans. Pizza: crust (bread), tomato sauce, cheese. Spaghetti: pasta (bread), tomato sauce, paremsan cheese. So I swore off bread cheese and tomatoes and suddenly was eating way more variety.

    Friday dinner: fillet mignon, potatoes and spinach, quail, smoked salmon and fennel, wine. Would anybody rather have pizza or burritos?

    Anyway, you can't argue with people who disagree on the basis of "variety." The only thing you can do is maybe cook for them one night.

    I look for excitement and satisfaction in other aspects of my life which makes me much happier than when I was chasing the high from a highly palatable meal.

    Eating is something that humans must do for survival; it shouldn't be 'fun' or 'satisfying' or 'exciting'. Looking for emotional fulfillment from food, in my opinion, is dangerous. Food is not a friend. It doesn't have a personality, therefore thinking of it as being 'boring' is personifying it in a really unhealthy way.

    A-freaking-men.

    I get a frustration headache when folks at work act like I'm starving myself by not chomping down on a bagel on Friday mornings with them, or when I get my burger without a bun. Some have told me that "all of that protein must get old fast!" Then I think about what they eat - bagel and cream cheese for breakfast... sandwich for lunch... pasta for dinner... and I think to myself, "You're the one with the boring diet!"

    The things I used to eat way back when weren't much different: pop tarts for breakfast, huge sandwich for lunch, pizza for dinner. At least 350 grams of carbs per day, making up at least 60% of my Calories. Ridiculous and totally boring and flavorless!

    Great points! I feel I have way more options now than when I was eating a SAD diet, not to mention all the health benefits that go with the change.
