The only way around it is either to have an adamantine backbone or to not eat with your boyfriend

This means that he is not allowed to bring food to your house
The only problem with that is me and my boyfriend live together so there is always going to be non paleo food in my house. And my 20% is turning into 40% which I am not happy about.

I think I will just have to toughen up a bit and learn to say no.

Exercises / Alternative to squats.

I want to tone up my thighs, but I have bad knees (patella tendonitis) so doing squats hurts. Holding my weight on bent knees is impossible sometimes. The more I play sport the worse they become.
Does anyone have anything low impact I can do to tone my thighs.

Thanks so much. I live in Australia and it seems that everyone's culture is just to eat! Probably why we are the fattest country in the world.
About the Kale. I've been trying to find it here but am having no luck. Do you know if it has another name in Australia?
My boyfriend isn't that lazy. He just can't get his head around not eating bread or grain anymore.

I'm a sucker for pancakes. They are what I really miss. But if you mush up a banana with 2 eggs and cook it in the fry pan it comes out like pancakes and helps suppress my sweet tooth.
Great with strawberries or pretty much and fruit on top.

Hi guys. I'm trying to start going paleo, I'm keen on the 80/20 rule for the moment as it would be easier to stick to.
I've hit a couple of walls already though. My boyfriend doesn't want to go paleo. He will eat the meals when I cook them, but then he'll also bring in a lot of non paleo food and want to get takeout with me, and I am not good with temptation.
My work also supplies cheese, crackers and sweet biscuits, along with cakes and dips on special occasions.
When I am out of the house eating I tend to eat anything as I can not be bothered dealing with people asking about why I'm not eating certain foods. It seems whenever I try to explain it to someone they say "why are you on a diet? You're skinny already." But it's not about the weight, I just want to be healthy.
Does anyone have some tips to help me stay on track?
