I was wondering if I could get some advice for a better eating plan/strategy for me and my wife. And more importantly, how to approach her with it and how to sell it to her. We have talked about changing our eating habits (which suck) for over a year. We just have not agreed on which “diet” or “plan” we were going to follow. Whether it was a paleo-type diet, typical low-carb, medterrianian diet, whatever. She is usually the one who ends up saying they are “too-restrictive”. She consumes way too much carbs, and I would like to even make an appointment with a professional so she can hear it from someone other than me. Too much bread and red wine, in my opinion- but I want to be supportive and let her have input, it’s just I have much more knowledge in this area.
I have considered making a doctor’s appointment, since she takes medicine for her high blood pressure. She blames it one her “family history”, but I call BS. I blame diet. I would like to have her blood sugar checked. We are in our mid 30s, so this is something we should start taking seriously. She has gained weight in the past 2 years, so I just do know how to address it without coming off… just being concerned about her physical appearance. Don’t get me wrong, that is a factor, but health is the bigger one.
Can anyone help?
