As the former person who used to eat gross Lean Cuisines thinking I was being good, consider just offering to share a book if interested. Actually I think a good one to get people started and over their fear of fat is "Gary Taubes Why We Get Fat"... the leap from CW to primal is hard (mentally)... I think Gary Taubes is a good stepping stone to move away from the conventional wisdoem.
I actually keep a "Before" picture in my phone. It's a little embarrassing to show people, but since I've moved around so much since then, the new coworkers and people I meet often don't believe that I wasn't always this fit. I was never obese, but definitely overweight, and now I'm known as the crazy guy that plays on parallettes during breaks.

It's definitely harder to sell to other people without the finished (or mostly finished) product, but dropping 25 pounds is nothing to sneeze at, especially if you have some pictures of your progress.
