I've found that I have to supress the urge to chastise people everywhere for eating poison and for not knowing better!
I have to restrict myself from lecturing on the evils of sugar and wheat
I have to restrain from interrupting someone talking about low fat diet X being the latest greatest
I have to bite my tongue when someone complains about themselves or a loved one with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol or other easily curable "disease" because when I open my mouth to explain, they say "you're no doctor" "my doctor says otherwise" "no way, studies!!! Show that fat is bad for you" really which ones?
No one wants to listen
no one wants to hear that they've been LIED to their entire lives
no one wants to hear that the government has misinformed them and worse MISTRAINED their doctors...
Anyone else feel like they should be shouting from the rooftops but don't want to have to dodge rotting fruit to do so?
I get people that ask me how I lost 105lbs... Then scoff at me and call me stupid when I say i eat fat instead of carbs/sugar, they insist I'm going to kill myself or that their friend X tried diet Y that they read about on the Internet and now they have disease Z
what do we do? How do we break thru the shell and let them hear the truth?
Edit: additional question... how do we paleosmack our childrens athletic coach, who wants to carb load junk food into all the kids?
Edit: wanted to share a little "sigh" story.
At work, we had a luncheon. only "safe" food was a salad. Lettuce. So im grabbing a plate of lettuce so as not to be the only guy sitting around with nothing. Normally Id just skip the meal. 2 slightly overweight guys suggested I take food (I think it was chicken pot pie). I said, I can't. One insisted, no, you want to, but are avoiding it. I replied: no, Im allergic to wheat. The other quickly replied, oh that makes sense why you're so skinny. /facepalm. If you understand that wheat makes you fat... Why do you eat it? /ragequit.
