Emily Posted April 9, 2012 Share Posted April 9, 2012 This may be ridiculous, but I've been trying to keep my family from referring to our Whole30 as "the diet" for multiple reasons: 1. I know diet didn't always mean "trying to lose weight," but I think it has that connotation now 2. I'm concerned about our 12 yo daughter getting the message that she needs to diet (she doesn't). She already asks "Am I skinny?" to which I reply "you are healthy and that is all I want." (Just for the record, she is long and lean and does qualify as skinny. But I'd prefer that not be part of her identity if I can effect it at all.) 3. I feel like when the kids tell "outsiders" --teachers, friends, etc, that we are on a diet that we come across as crazy and obsessive. I use these words: menu, plan, how we eat. How does your family refer to the Whole30? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
