I notice the same issue with my boyfriend. He is normally the one who cooks. But he uses a lot of oil, butter, etc. He makes comments when I opt to eat a salad over the delicious seafood paella he makes (last night). But I believe all you can do is lead by example. Some people are set in their ways. But maybe you can be an inspiration by sticking to your journey towards a healthier lifestyle. And just be patient with your husband. If anything, maybe just make it clear that you are doing this for both of your futures, and appreciate his support. I know how hard it is to resist temptation especially when you are cooking something different for your husband. But just think of the benefits in the long run. Stick with it!

Perhaps you can tell him the health reasons on why you are doing it. I typically play the feel bad for me card-I eat like this so I will have more energy and I will feel better, don't you want me to feel better? haha

Hey Dreamz,

What does your husband care what you're having for dinner as long as he's having what he wants? Do you both order the same thing when you go out to restaurants or do you each have what you want off of the menu?

If he wants you to have the same thing as he's having, serve him the meal you fix for yourself. Problem solved. LOL

Just a couple of thoughts from a man's point of view.

Nothing tastes as good as healthy feels and looks.

I am beginning to change the way I look at nutrients and food. I no longer eat red meat or dairy products. I feel amazing. My energy level is through the roof. However; my hubby doesn't feel the same. Even though I still cook him red meat and such, he always has some kind of negative comment. "when are you going to eat what I am eating?" I know that he is a meat and potatoes kinda man. How can I get through to him that I am not "too good" for "real, or average food"
