Although no one has called me out on the carpet for my dietary/lifestyle changes, if they ask I say:
"I lost 2 lbs per week for the first 8 weeks of not eating grains and sugars."
"I eat only when I am hungry, and usually find that I am not very often hungry."
"I do exercise, but not a whole lot."
People tend not to be able to argue with the above statements, meaning if they try to tell me my diet is unhealthy I can say, 'yeah, but I lost a lot of weight, so I am healthier now than I was.'
If they ask me about giving up bread, I say "yes, that was my biggest fear because I loved eating bread. But I tell them that after a week of not eating it, the cravings went away and I never desired to eat it again."
BTW, reading the Primal Blueprint convinced me there is no reason to eat bread.
Some people ask me about my lipid profile, and I can safely tell them that after the first couple of months, my profile was in line with those of my past - not my worst, but not my best, about average for me.
After nine months of living and eating primally, and having lost (and kept off) a total of 24lbs so far, I can safely say that I will never go back to eating bread or other grains and sugars. At least not anywhere near the consumption rate of my past, or near the recommendation of the FDA.
