I’m on my 5th week of T-Dawg, and i must say that i’m having a blast. It’s incredibly easy to stick with, the weight loss has been very steady, and there hasn’t been any muscle/strength loss to my best knowledge.
The only problem is my mother, who for some reason is absolutely convinced that if she doesn’t somehow make me start eating simple carbs again, i will get stomach cancer and die a horrible death.
I’m serious, she seems genuinely terrified. She says i have “those crazy eyes” and actually compared me to some anorexic girl she saw on TV. And i’m 6’1 / 195lbs. She truly believes that it is her duty to get me off this diet, or make my life a living hell while i’m on it.
To tell you the truth, it’s really starting to get to me. She was standing here for an hour and waving ‘food pyramid’ brochures in my face while i was trying to watch a movie. My suggestion to take her concerns to a professional nutritionist bounced off her like a tennis ball off concrete. Apparently, she truly is THE leading nutrition expert.
So what do i do? What do i show her? What do i tell her to keep her from driving me insane until i can get weight down to a lower level, at which point i’ll be able to start eating rice again? I need help and i need it now, i can’t take this much longer!
