@AnonymousCupcake:  why is anyone asking about what you’re eating or ordering? Unless you only order a side of broccoli, I’m sure no one is noticing. I just wouldn’t say anything.

Totally agree with above comment. unless u order a side salad why would anyone think anyrhing of it?

I order seafood like salmon etc and eat the salmon and veges/salad before any chips/potatoes then say I’m full , no one questions, and sometimes get an entree instead of a full meal. And don’t order alcohol and if anyone asks I either say I have a bit of a headache or on anti biotics (if theyre the type of group to say “ahh come on have a drink” if me sayin I jus don’t want one isn’t enough) 

 

just order healthy food not fried stuff and only eat til your full , some people think they need to get theirmoney’s worth so eat it all but don’t. Get a doggy bag if u like

@AnonymousCupcake:  yea I can relate and I hate it. Generally I eat pretty healthy and when me and my friends go out and they get McDonald’s and I get sushi or a salad (which I actually prefer to eat) they just can’t believe I don’t want fries or a coke etc!!! I jus say yea not today , I have a funny stomach. Or I’m not that hungry . It is annoying that you have to explain yourself but just make up something and they’ll shut up 😉

I think you have to strike a balance in your attitude between acting like “ugh I’m on a diet and I feel so deprived” and “I’m not eating that garbage anymore” so that people realize you are not interested in the carbs and that you’re also not criticizing them (people like to make themselves feel better by putting down others’ choices). Just a simple “no we are trying to eliminate processed food and make healthier choices” should suffice, and then switch the topic of conversation.

@AnonymousCupcake:  yeah I can understand that. People can be obnoxious but hopefully they will be supportive if he just says he’s starting to change his diet to include healthier options. Sometimes people like to try and sabotage good choices others make because it makes them insecure–kind of like misery loves company but more like people want partners in crime with their bad habits. If he is overweight, hopefully his family and friends will be supportive!
