    Default Do you comment in what your partner eats?

    Yep I do. DH eats terribly if left to his own devices, and it shows in his moods and energy. I won't sit there and nit pick every mouthful, but I will say something if his diet is going downhill.

    I don't do it because I want him to look good, I do it because I worry about his health and want him to be around for his family for a long time.

    Hubby has never said anything..well besides he doesn't understand tofu. Me yes I tell him off for eating crap but always joking...he is a bean pole, I feed him healthy as with kids but he does have his "bad shelf" of chips and bickies etc.....when I tell him off it is because he leaves the half empty packets of chips out for kids to find. I can't imagine him ever telling me off. So not right

    I'm always telling DH off for the amount of take away and junk feed he eats. He is tall and slim but his diet could've improved. It stresses me out, but he just ignores me!!! I do it from a concerned point of view, I want him here for a long time.

    not food...but I have commented when I thought he was drinking too much/too often and asked him to have a few weeks dry (which is normally how we live so it stands out when he starts drinking a lot).

    He would not comment on what I eat.

    YES he's a bottomless pit. Though I dunno where it all goes he's 6ft and 83kg :? He's eating me out of house &home. What really gets me is when I get kids special treats and he eats them drives me nuts. It's like seriously do you have to be such an inconsiderate pig ?bloody male
    Out grocery bill has doubled since he moved back in. It's insane how much he eats I think what he eats in 1 day would feed me for 3 today's example. - breakfast huge bowl of coco pops and coffee
    -morning tea 4 English muffins with cream cheese & chilli stuff on them
    -lunch big bowl of left over spaghetti now (enough to feed 2 people)
    -afternoon tea. 1 tin spaghetti 1 tin baked beans5 bits of toast with butter
    Dinner to take to work 4 sandwiches
    And he's just told me he got a Big Mac meal just now. And V to keep him going til end shift at 4am.

    Is it just me or is that a huge amount ?

    hmm so he is a good weight not heavy but that is a lot of food I would think for his size. Could there be a health thing going on? Maybe a thyroid thing because you would think he would get fat eating all that, or is he super active?
