paleoforit Posted January 14, 2013 Share Posted January 14, 2013 I have been paleo for about a year, and have recently embarked on an 8 week Whole30 junket with my gym. Many of my friends and coworkers are non-paleo but express interest in sort of doing it or trying it out. The thing is, I feel like it's pointless for them to try it and not go whole hog. Doesn't it negate the benefits if they eat clean during the week and go nuts on the weekends? Here are two examples: Friend 1: Eats "paleo" (I don't even know what that means to her) during the week, allows weekends off. Friend 2: Wants to eat "paleo-lite" which means: keeping rice and potatoes (in moderation) and alcohol (not in moderation). They want to eliminate grains and sugar. Ugh!This frustrates me so much. I used to tell my friends,"Don't bother, just keep eating how you're eating" because people who are wish-washy bother me. But since the New Year I've been more like,"That's great! Let me know if you have questions. Make sure to eat lots of veggies with your protein." What do you suggest? And does it even make sense for these people to try to go paleo at all why semi-hanging on to their old lifestyles or is it doing more harm than good?
