I am concerned about my overweight/obese friend/relative, how can I best introduce them to raw? PDF Print E-mail

It is a common issue for it to seem very hard to broach this subject with others who are overweight/obese and not necessarily open to the idea of discussing their health. If it seems too challenging to directly address this issue with your loved one, here are some of my suggestions for less-direct approaches, based on experience...

*If you are 'known' in your social world as a raw food 'advocate' and that seems to make it harder to share the info, find a more 'neutral' friend who you feel MIGHT be willing and able to pass on the message.

*Depending on the person's attitude to their health, it may or may not be a good idea to present them with smthg WRITTEN rather than someone trying to SPEAK to them about it - talking may seem too confrontational, but if it's smthg written that they can just look at in their own space/time, that's different.

*Suggestions - email them a link to the RawReform website/blog, or even order RawReform books and have them sent to that person's address - there might be less of a 'rejection' issue towards the material if it just randomly arrives in the mail/email...

*If the person comes to visit you, perhaps you could use that as an opportunity - for example, have a gathering at your house and CASUALLY bring raw weight loss stuff into conversation - do not direct it at them or draw attention to them. Maybe just start to express your excitement abt before/after pictures etc and pull them up on the computer for people to see...let the seeds be gently sown in their consciousness...or have raw books there on a table or smthg for people to look at...

I hope that's given you some ideas of how to subtely handle this and that things work out well for you all :)
