My hubs also eats OUTSTANDING amounts of food to both cut and build. It really helps me that he doesn't eat terrible food (pop tarts and potato chips?!? that's not a very good source of fuel for a healthy body) and that I'm aware that I need to eat less and differently than him. I try a taste of whatever he has, then make and eat my own food. You might see if there are other good suggestions over at the forums on forum.bodybuilding.com/
Last, but certainly not least, start strength training yourself if you aren't already doing it. Now that I do the big five lifts as a center of my exercises, I'm looking waaaaaaay fitter and losing weight AND I get to eat more than before.
Yesterday is but a dream, tomorrow but a vision. But today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness, and every tomorrow a vision of hope. Look well, therefore, to this day.
