What Do You Tell People About Your Diet?
Im lucky in that I have pretty much cured my Imflamatory Bowel Disease through eating mainly raw so I can say that I eat like this to solve a medicinal problem.
I’ve gotten frustrated by playing into people’s expectations that I have to have a medical reason to eat well. I want to be able to tell people that I like to eat this way, or some other answer than just telling them it’s because of health problems. I don’t really bring it up now unless people ask or someone invites me to dinner or something. Even then, I don’t always go into detail unless people really want to know. I’ve told people things like “I like to eat really healthy” and if they ask more, I tell them “I like to eat all raw.”
