    Default Do you comment in what your partner eats?

    So I am feeling a bit angry and upset with dh because he told me off for eating "too much junk food and not knowing when to stop". Yes I admit that I had been snacking on chips whilst watching tv after the kids were in bed 2 days in a row. Btw these were junk food he bought!!!
    I dont have health issues and not really any weight issues aside from a big tummy (I have 2 kids).
    I don't tell my dh what he can or can't eat. He is an adult and responsible for his own food choices. Unless he has health issues I don't feel the need to monitor him. I suppose what really bothers me is that I believe he is not concerned for my health but my appearance.
    Anyway do you/your partner comment about each others food choices? Do you think you have a right to if there are no serious health issues?

    Damn straight I do. He's 6'2'' and never hit 90kg in his life but eats the poorest diet. I'm slowly changing that.

    Getting him to realise though that given the only place he carries fat is his abdomen and with a high visceral fat rating he needs to do something about it, is quite the challenge.

    However, I comment for his well being n the fact I want him to be around for his grand kids. It's certainly not an appearance thing as he 'appears' fit as a fiddle. Tall n slender.

    I comment *sometimes* because his Great-grandad, Grandad and Dad all had heart attacks before turning 50. It worries me.

    Other times I will comment if he eats more than his share of food (he will eat an entire block of chocolate in one sitting and then start on mine, which I usually take a month to eat).

    Mostly I don't comment though.

    My exH used to do that. I absolutely HATED it. I'm an adult, and I will eat what I god damn want!! I am not overweight and have no health issues, so woe betide anyone who dares to comment on what I eat!! If I feel like a treat once in a while, I will bloody well have one! Having my ex comment made me so uncomfortable and resentful towards him, and it resulted in me feeling like I had to sneak treats just so he wouldn't comment....which is really pathetic in a marriage. There's a few good reasons why he's now my ex.

    I only comment on what DH is eating if he is about to have something thats needed for something else.

    ie: if theres shaved ham in the fridge he'll grab it with the intention of eating it all in one go when ive intended it for all our lunches

    I have of late, because he has put on weight, hasn't been exercising and has been eating quite a bit of junk (at work). I worry about his health, he has high blood pressure and has a family history of heart conditions. He isn't overweight, yet, but I wonder what excess weight will do to him health wise. I also comment on his diet coke consumption and smoking. More in a "Do you think you will ever quit"/"How much water do you drink?" type way.

    Hubby doesn't really comment on what I eat, unless I've eaten an obscene amount of sugar (like 2 big packs of skittles in 2 days ). I am a lot healthier than he is though, so he doesn't really have anything to comment on.

    I have heard that is the most dangerous fat to have.
