The problem with parents is that if you decide to radically change summat like your diet, you're effectively rejecting the way they brought you up. Your mum could well think that you are saying to her, 'the food you fed me was cruel and unhealthy and I no longer want it', and could take it as a personal insult.
Asleep on a sunbeam wrote:another story, not a problem. I turned vegan, then my collar bone went snap (due to judo) and my mum decided I wasn't getting enough calcium and that was why. Perhaps it was part of the reason perhaps it wasn't, anyway, I end up seeing a dietitian (a few months ago) and telling her where I got X Y and Z from, etc. every 5 seconds she was turning the page in the text book and realising yes, I was, and just ended up telling me to eat more mushrooms (not really a problem, although I should get some more in thinking about it). I found it crazy that I was telling her that I got calcium from spinach, as well as iron, and the same from broccoli, and she had to check it because she didn't know.
