My boyfriend and I are going to be staying with his parents for just over a week at Easter. They are lovely people. BUT his dad is an ex marathon runner who now cycles hundreds of miles a week and survives on a diet of meat, veg, potatoes and a LOT of sugar and a belief in a lot of cardio. His mum is dairy free (eats soya alternatives) as she had cancer and after a lot of research at the time, went dairy free and is now thankfully cancer free and has been for many years - but is also a big advocate of lower fat, brown grain based products.
They know about us being primal but I think they find it hard to understand it properly and I don't want to offend them - how do I be polite, seem 'normal' and retain the great primal feeling i have from living primally at home without eating lots of things that will make me feel like crap and take me back to square one? IF isn't really an option as they will worry and think i've got some eating disorder or something - they think the primal is weird enough!
How would you cope? What would you do? Do you think eating a bit (i.e. accepting that cooking with olive oil is something I can't avoid) but avoid the real no nos i.e. wheat and excessive sugar, do slightly more cardio and take more omega 3 would help??
Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!
