ugh, i hear ya on this. i count my calories at every meal and measure out exactly what i need to eat, and he gets to wing it, stuffing his face. i thought of asking him to count his calories with me, but i don’t really know what that would do besides confirm that he can eat 2x as much as me and still be tiny (don’t even get me started on how i weigh MORE than him…)

yes! It drives me crazy, I am ALWAYS dieting, and he is ALWAYS eating! I have heard that the 17 day diet really works!

The other day, I was sitting there peacefully drinking my Body By Vi shake, and I walk into the living room and Fiance has a box of Lindor chocolates, My favorite, and then has the nerve to offer me one!! He can eat ANYTHING without gaining a pound, me on the other hand would gain a pound just from eating one chocolate! So frusterating!

They all usually gain eventually as they age …just wait!

Been there, I know its super frusterating. Maybe they just don’t worry and obsess as much as us therefore making it easier to keep cortisol levels down and things in balance.

Yes, completely! It’s so easy to let my portion sizes balloon when he can happilly chow down 2 or 3 times as much as I should be eating.

Curious, why are you having to restrict your coffee intake? Is it because of adding the sugar/milk?

@colli459:Interesting, thank you for clarifying. Doesn’t green tea also have caffeine in it, though? I love my 3-4 cups per day, I’m sure I should cut back on the 2tsp of sugar that goes in every cup (!) but I would need a very good reason to go without the coffee, it’s a wunderfood!

I don’t mean to derail your diet in any way I’m just curious, & think it so cruel to go without that maybe you could still be fine with a few extra cups?? (:

OMG mine is so awesome about this!  He’s given up all the foods that I can’t eat, and there’s even a six pack UN-TOUCHED in the fridge so he can “suffer along with me”.  He did turn to me over dinner (plain grilled fish and salad) last night and say “this is over after our trip right?”

god this is such crap!!! my SO is that way. there was a period of time where he gained like a good 40 lbs. it was quite the gain for him. then one day he’s like eh im gonna lose weight. to which i rolled my eyes because it takes him little to no effort. he just cut back a little and went to work everyday as usual and now he’s back to his normal fit self. do you realize how long i have struggled to lose weight? its like permanently glued onto my body. but for him, he just woke up one day like hmmm maybe ill get rid of 40 lbs now, and then did it without even trying. i actually cried to him one day during one of my not so great dieting days. i was eating cucumber slices while he sat with the bag of doritos. combine pms, hunger, and exhaustion and a meltdown is what you get. he got it. big time. i was like a disturbed 2 year old ugly face crying on the couch with my bowl of cucumber slices…..it. was. awesome.

yes!  He can eat whatever he wants and never gains a pound.  and he FORGETS to eat.  Who forgets to eat??  I’ve never missed a meal in my life.

If this were me, I’d tell him to eat his cheese curls somewhere else! Like maybe in the car, or at work, but not in front of me. I really think I started overeating in the first place because I try to keep up with FH when he eats big portions of the foods I like.

@MissNoodles: aww, your Fiance is too cute. I wish my SO would eat the same things. He doesn’t eat any veggies at all!!!

It’s soooo hard chowing down on ANOTHER salad while he’s eating poutine….. Grrrrrr.
