    I personally think, even more than how they eat, the most important thing is how supportive they are of the things you do to make your life better.

    The Boyfriend isn't Primal or Paleo, but he tries to keep the non-Primal things he eats from being "in my face", and when we go out, he tries to find places where I can have the most choices.

    Live and let live. DH sometimes joins me in my Paleo or green drink adventures. He says, "I have to get back to that" often. I myself will sometimes bring a few junk food tidbits into the house for the kiddies. The smell of warm bread is often in my face. Sometimes daily. But, no one is physically forcing me to eat the rice, bread, sugar or pasta. DH knows about this and agrees with me. But, Food happens. Even the Fake kinds.

    I keep a gluten-free household. That is not up for debate. If he wants to eat gluten, he can eat it elsewhere. But aside from that, he can eat what he wants to eat. Mostly what he wants to eat is the food I fix, so he doesn't end up eating much junk.

    Mine is mostly GF but also has the willpower of piglet, so she'll often eat wheat when other people are.

    I struggle to provide sympathy on those occasions.
    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

    TQP: I find for me that nutrition is much more important than what I do in the gym.

    Yes, this.
    Live your life and love your life. It's the only one you get.

    This basically. I'm not gluten free, but what I say goes as far as nutrition. He can eat what he wants outside the home. He runs the show in other areas. For example, he will pick where we vacation or what color to paint the walls - because I don't care as much and I trust his thoughts and opinions in this area. I'm sensitive about food, so he let's me rule in that area. He's sensitive/choosy about other things and I let him rule those areas. It's the balance we've struck I guess. This kind of give and take showed early on when we were dating. If it hadn't, I don't think we'd have been compatible.

    To me, it matters. It matters if the person cares about taking care of themselves, and if they think I'm ridiculous for eating the way I do or have no interest in learning from me, I probably don't see them as a long-term candidate for success. But early in the relationship, I don't care, keep it light, and joke around about it rather than being pushy, and usually they end up coming to me and at least making some adjustments that suit their preferences and beliefs.

    Vegan is a deal-breaker.
