Discussion??

Last evening my BFF and her DH came over for dinner.  We had beef short ribs and she brought potato salad and homemade salsa with tortilla chips.

During the evening, her DH commented on my meal plan, saying "do you really eat all that?"  I replied yes, and he said "Americans eat too much meat.  No wonder you're all sick.  In my country (he's from Bangladesh) we eat only a small bit of meat and the rest is vegetables."

I didn't comment on the fact that his mother is a brittle type 2 diabetic and that he has high blood pressure that requires medication.



How would you have replied?

Not sure what I would've said. Everyone is different.

Hmmm... that would probably have thrown me for a loop. It was a little forward of him, I think--almost rude. I might have said something like "my family is very healthy eating this way. If you are equally healthy, then I suppose there is more than one lifestyle that works."
