Before I started McDougalling, I was aware that vegetarian or even vegan eating was a healthy way to go, but I was very resistant to the idea of "giving up" meat and dairy. I didn't think it would be truly healthy to do so, and felt like there were too many fanatical plant-eaters out there. I didn't want to be the "weird one". I honestly think that if anyone had leaned hard on me at that time to accept a vegan diet, I might still be eating my Sally Fallon "Traditional" diet. I had to come around to it in my own way and my own time. I had to fight against it before I was ready to embrace it. So maybe that just makes me unusually stubborn, or something (gee, ya think?!); but I really don't think you can badger anyone into healthy eating unless they are already set to make the switch, and even then you need to tread lightly. You can offer a good example, and maybe point them toward some good books, but it has to be done gently. You can encourage and support them once they take the plunge, but it has to be their own decision.

Guess big buisness is overpowering ethics there too!
