I feel you all. My dad has type II diabetes and still eats donuts every morning for breakfast. He doesn't care; won't change anything. He'd rather take a pill & sit on the couch watching tv all day.
My mom, on the other hand, has expressed interest in primal so I bought the book for her for Mother's Day in addition to a nice card, of course. I told her my dad can still have his meat and potatoes. She doesn't get that this is not about dieting: It's about living.
