In Response To: Re: Why is it so hard? (nancy)

I tried explaining the diet to an MD, my mother's friend, who suffers from all manner of digestive trouble and thinks it's "hereditary." She later called my mother and told her that perhaps I should see a therapist because "all I talked about was food." I have a couple MD friends and they respond in a similar manner -- throw it back in my face as the sign of something wrong with me. Since they can't pinpoint anything wrong with me physically, they interpret my interest in healthy nutrition as a psychological problem, a proof of some fatal abnormality in my thinking. There's got to be a problem with someone who tells them, albeit indirectly, that they've invested their lives in bullsh...t -- how else can they defend? The message is extremely threatening to a lot of people. I glean it from extremely irrational responses I get from the (seemingly) most rational individuals. Took me five minutes to convince my kids though. But the next thing they told me was, try getting the college dining hall where most of their meals currently occur to offer anything compatible with anyone's type. What a world.
