Sure, you might be judged initially as a completely insane renegade, given the amounts of butter, animal fat, and other delights you unabashedly hork down in front of family and friends.
But then...they ask a few questions...and you start drawing on your bank of long-accumulated paleo knowledge. Suddenly you're talking about the proper balance of omegas, the way your body reacts to excess fructose, the process of ketosis, etc. You've revealed yourself to be a huge nutrition nerd, albeit one that glug-glugs heavy cream into your coffee with reckless abandon.
So what's the final verdict? In the end, are you perceived to be an insubordinate rebel peeling off of a dietary cliff Thelma-and-Louise style, or a nerdy [or even...sigh...orthorexic] square who follows a set of dietary rules so complex they deserve their own auditing organization?
(Finally, it's OK if you want to answer that you don't really care what anyone thinks because paleo works for you and that's all that matters to you...but...just for fun...could you at least give the verdict that you think your loved ones would render?)
