So my partner has come to me a few times and asked me to help her to lose some weight. She wants to transition into the primal diet.
When I first started reading about this way of life I suddenly stopped eating the SAD (which I like to rename to Standard Australian Diet) and started eating primal. I did and still do cheat here and there but nothing to major.
Anyway my partner will say to me that she is going to cut out all the non-primal foods but it doesn't usually last more than a day, especially if she is out and about. She asks me why she is still gaining weight and I get a little frustrated and tell her why I believe she is failing. I do my best to put it into a constructive format for her but she always seem to only hear the negatives and thinks I am just shooting her down all the time.
I am definitely not doing that intentionally. However I do think I am not understanding it from her point of view as it was just so cut and dry for me,
Has anyone else had experience helping friends/family coming to the light side? Any tips on maybe getting her to remove a couple of foods at a time. which foods to start with and what to replace them with initially?
