    Only when he eats chips in my eat and I'm like wtf? Or drinks beer on a Saturday morning because he's worked hard all week.... Then I crack the poops because we can't do anything because I can't drive

    I would of told him to stfu. It's your body and you would eat your chips and you will eat them if you want too! Unless you have been saying 'I want/need to loose weight' then continually do this but ask for support then yeah I would have told him to shut up lol.

    I do .. Only coz I want him to realise what he eats sometimes may end up killing him!!! He is 47 and eats a lot if crap .. Not always .. But more then he should!! Also being pregnant again.. I want him to be around for this child .. I feel if he doesn't change his eating pattern he could die.. He tries but I do have to remind him!! He also drinks to much and that really annoys me .. Also coz I don't drink anything now .. I want him to join me and at least not drink during week .. Or have just 1 glass of wine at night .. Not 3 !!

    Yep, I do!!

    In much the same way as I would comment if he decided to smoke or drink too much alcohol, I will comment if he's stuffing himself silly with junk food. He literally has no self control with food. He will eat until he vomits. One time he ate a kilo of cookies in one sitting. He actually needs to be told to stop sometimes.

    I do lol my DP ATM has been eating ALOT of lollies... I say his been having my cravings.

    But I wouldn't say your getting fat or try and control what he eats. His aloud to eat what he wants. If he did start putting weight on (which he has) it wouldn't and dosnt bother me he use to comment on what I ate. But dosnt anymore because he now most of the time uses his brain.

    Yep, we both comment, but moreso me because he tends to eat worse than me.

    We respect each other's options enough and know that if the person we love us commenting its because they love us and want the best for us, not because they're being mean. Both his parents are on cholesterol medication, and he's overweight - I love him and I'm concerned for him. It's got nothing to do with how he looks, and he knows that.

    He comments if he thinks I've gone a bit over the top, and I appreciate it. We have a laugh and I put the icecream away for the rest of the week!

    ETA: we don't tell each other what we can or can't eat. It's just commenting or suggesting.

    He is a healthy weight but heart problems run in his family, and i wont 'save his feelings' so he can eat himself into an early grave for the sake of some "tasty food" as he calls it. I love him too much.
    Ewww! My DH does that. He loves eating the fat. I always buy shortcut bacon and try and by heart smart meat, but if there is fat (and I'm talking about the big thick piece of a pork loin kind of fat) you will never find it left on his plate, because he eats it!! Blergh.

    I do sometimes as I think his calorie intake is too low, and he often seems tired and is about 15kg underweight. Plus he doesn't eat enough fruit and doesn't snack enough.

    Like on his work days, he will have breakfast at 6.30am, and often have nothing at all until 12.30pm, then lunch, then nothing again until about 7pm, or just a cup of black tea (no sugar) in between. If I don't hassle him, he won't take any snacks to work to keep up his energy levels.

    Yes I do, he has high cholesterol and is only 35. I would say its more of nagging and criticising though than commenting.
