I have been eating Primal-style (a variant on Paleo) since January. Most of the food we eat has been homemade for years, but there were a lot of non-Primal selections. There was some whining from the teens in the beginning, but they have adapted well. At home they eat Primal, cause that's all there is - if they're jonesing for something they usually go out and get it or go to a friends. But I have noticed they are even doing less of that.
I don't harp about it, just go about the business of eating on my plan and they are coming around. They have both changed their body comp. for the better too.
On the subject of red wine, dairy, etc. it really depends on what author you read, some advocate wine is OK, some dairy, some legumes. My recommendation is to go strict for 30 days and then add foods back in one at a time and pay attention to how your body is feeling and/or what is happening with your weight loss.
Red wine doesn't seem to have much impact on me, but GF (also Primal eater) has a reaction. She can eat legumes, my body doesn't respond well.
Seems we are each different and need to find out what works.
All the best and ....
