In my household (of only two) I am in charge of the cooking, mostly. So, I fix healthy meals that I can eat, and have gradually taught my SO to not bring home certain things as "treats". At home, as far as bad eating goes, I'm my own worst enemy, so it's my own fault if I decide I'm going to eat poorly.

When it's a question of eating at other people's homes, there are a few different things I do, but mainly I rely on portion control. I'll eat anything & be a good and appreciative guest, I just won't eat a lot of it, and say "oh, I can't, I'm so stuffed, it's marvelous" a lot.

I do the shopping and cooking at my house, so I limit the amount of junk I have on hand. If he wants junk, usually it purchases it while out so he's not eating it around me. And occassionally I'll buy something that he enjoys that's simply not a temptation for me.

I never say that I can't have bad food I always try to think about the reasons I don't want it

I will admit I have it pretty easy at home as it is just my fiance and I, but he is a huge junkfood eater. I just gradually quit buying the junk, and he's figuring out that eating healthy is delicious. We grill out nearly everyday, have lots of fresh fruits and veggies in the house at all times. No more Little Debbie snack cakes for him. And he doesn't seem to mind. I reward him by baking a cake now and then (no frosting), throw some blueberries and a bit of lite whipped cream and he's a happy man.

do you have any say on what food is prepared? if so start making healthier meals for everybody,

one tip I have been trying is not telling myself "you can't have ______", instead I say, "thats not part of your plan today, you can have that another day when you have planned of it"

good luck
