Ok so im overweight and I do want to diet but occasionally i want a snack or wutever but recently I have felt like I have to eat when ever my boyfriend is out of the house. He knows I'm on a diet so whenever I eat something in front of him he makes little comments that bother me so I feel like I shouldn't eat in front of him- what should I do?Answer Question

My response would not be as nice as the PP to what to say to your BF. I would tell him if he don't like me eating then he can kiss my ass. Or I would make a commit about one of his problem areas, I'm just mean like that though. I basically will show someone who is mean like that how it feels. Anyways. I would eat the not so healthy stuff away from him and if he still says something, I believe its because he is the one insecure and not you.

As long as he's not putting you down and hurting yourself esteem, I think it might be helpful. It's called accountability and he's trying to help you. You are sabotaging yourself if you feel rebellious and eat when he's not around just to be able to do it. Going on a "diet" doesn't work because you'll only rebel against the diet and splurge on things that you shouldn't. You'll only gain more weight. If you want to lose weight, you need to change your way of thinking about food. Change your lifestyle and eating habits all together and you'll see the biggest change in your waist line, your health and your attitude. Might be a good idea to talk to a nutritionist to see what type of things you should be eating and how many calories you should be getting for your current weight. Good Luck.
