Past and present Paleo addicts, has someone ever asked you about nutrition? Or perhaps someone has expressed their views on food to you and then wanted your opinion. Or maybe someone has expressed their low fat, high carb, food-pyramid, grains are good for you “facts” and it irks the ba-geez-us out of you (yes “ba-geez-us” it’s a word). Then you try to give your personal experiences and opinions and get shut down, or better yet, looked at with surprising disgust and unbelief. They subsequently try to argue against your science with poor logic and anecdotal evidence. This happens to me on numerous occasions. At first I used to get frustrated, angry, and upset that someone wouldn’t believe me or even take the time to listen to what I had to say. It would ruin my day that people refused to think food could inflame their tissues, cause diabetes and other health issues, and in general make them fat.

I then learned that life is too short to be mad over how other people eat. Sounds silly, I know, but when you are passionate about something you want people to get on board! Now, if someone asks you how and what to consume, then tell them! But if they are too stubborn to listen or make a change there is nothing you can do but keep eating Paleo, remain healthy, and show them that your triglyceride levels and ripped abdominals speak louder than words.

I have found that some people will come around to Paleo, and others will not. Those that do will end up thanking you profusely. Especially if they have some autoimmune or other disease related to inflammation or high insulin levels. Others will just thank you for helping them drop weight and turning their life around. Those people make it all worthwhile.

So next time you feel an argument spurring about food just tell the “non-believer” to try Paleo for 30 days. What’s 30 days in his or her life? If you really want to make it interesting have them get their markers of health tested before and after the 30 days. After the challenge if they aren’t at least aware of a huge change in their appearance or another aspect of their life (whether they have the guts to continue or not) they won’t be able to nonsense argue with you anymore.

    Where are these” ripped abdominals” you speak of. I’ve been looking but can’t find any, lol. Anyhow this post is so true, so many times I have explained paleo to some calorie counter that hasn’t lost a pound in months. And it never fails they would rather do weight watchers than have to give up grains.

    I was once a non-believer. I could not even consider parting with my precious cheez-its. Then at the urging of my dear (diabetic) husband, I gave in. This was the beginning of a rebirth (since there is a butterfly in the picture I thought that term appropriate). My life and view of my body’s fuel was forever changed. Unfortunately, this comment box is not even big enough for me to expound on all that entails. But maybe that is a guest post for a later day. Or just ask me at the gym and I will happily elaborate.

    Hooray for Paleo!
