Zack, my partner in crime for the last four years, is 100% supportive and even excited about these new nutrition beliefs. He’s been on a modified version of Paleo for almost his entire life and is a lean 6′, 180lb man.
It makes a HUGE difference to have a partner that understands and agrees with my nutritional choices. He doesn’t bring bad food into the house, or beg to eat out at certain places. In fact, if I left him to his own defenses, he would probably grab some rolled up deli meat or a plain hot dog from the fridge when he was hungry. No fancy dinner for my man, he would be satisfied with a nice juicy piece of meat. Personally, I like to have some variety and color in my meals. I also like to cook and experiment with new recipes (which has also helped me stay on track).
It also helps that his dad is Tom Naughton, writer and comedian. He is also the writer/director of the comedy-documentary “Fat Head: you’ve been fed a load of bologna.” Go watch it for free on Hulu. Since then, he’s given a few more in depth speeches and has done his research on nutrition. I think it’s safe to say, family gatherings aren’t stuffed with SAD food items.
Love you Zack! <3
