You are smart to stop eating what bothers you. I truly believe grains are slowly killing people. I know a lot of people here would agree. I still try to convince people sometimes and some of those people are REALLY sick with things I believe this diet would help. It is so hard for me to understand being so addicted to food that you can't change your way of eating in order to feel better. But, then I think about it and it took me forever to decide to do something. Even though I always knew I was obese I chose not to do anything about it. It took a medical diagnosis for me to finally change my way of eating. So, all you can do is hope and pray they will find a reason to change their way of eating. Living with the doubters is hard but probably what you will have to do. Just don't let them be food pushers and try to sabotage your diet. You are doing the right thing!
