So lately I have been confronted with a stupid argument:
"Cavemen didn't live past age 30."
I tried explaining that, while I consider my diet pretty strict Paleo, I do not model it after a caveman, since I prepare the foods in various ways that a caveman would not have been able to, but instead that it is simply attempting to eat unprocessed foods that our bodies were meant to digest.
I'm still working on my Paleo-Pitch. Since I live in a country where English is not the native language, I find it hard to always use the same story, as people have varying abilities to understand me.
Because I enjoy the food, the weight-loss and the lifestyle, I often find myself bringing it up in several occasions. Unfortunately, I fear that I am beginning to sound "Preachy."
There's nothing I hate more than when a vegetarian tries to tell me why I shouldn't eat meat, or starts getting defensive of their personal lifestyle choices, so I am really trying to avoid doing this.
What do you do when you explain your Paleoness? Do you try to convince? Do you simply relay? Do you have to defend?
