If I didn't listen to them and ate this food I am sure they would send me to doctor and check my blood and of course wanted to see the results. And they would hold grudge against me (I tried that once. All discussions would be about my food till I would eat SAD food again).
hehe, Mitch- don't forget that perceptions of what a healthy body should look like have changed. Being heavier was considered beautiful and healthy. My grandparents (who are in Ukraine) are in no way annoying about diet (they're happy I take care of myself), but even in their opinion, I could be a bit bigger. Just different ideas about body size with generations :)
I hate how my family treat my diet, they're not as bad when I stick to it but they make fun of me completely if I struggle and have a day where I end up eating cooked food.
They say I'm inconsistant, or that I just like to pretend I have X diet, I'm not a proper vegan, that I just choose what suits me that day.
I just brush it off. NONE of them have ever tried to change anything with their diet. How would they know what it's like to try and be a raw food vegan when they've never even been on a diet or tried vegetarianism.
It is a little frustrating to be judged by people who have no idea. At least I'm trying to improve my health. I don't have to be 100% anything, I do get to choose what I eat from day to day as it's what I eat it doesn't effect them. I'll admit I'm having teething problems as I've just started raw again and I have VERY little time or money. I'm working towards my goals and I'm trying. That's good enough for me. :)
