How I Handle Food Pushers

Friday, April 12, 2013

I am one of the blessed ones that has no one trying to sabatauge my diet. On the rare occasion that I do I just tell them no thank you I do not care for any.

If anyone should push me I tell them that due to a mild stroke that I had 5 years ago I do not eat that kind of food anymore, but I am sure that it is wonderful and it really does look good. Then I try to divert the conversation to a better discussion.

    Good for you. Even though most people are well intentioned, sometimes the food pusher is using a form of bullying, IMO.

    Good approach! Shame that you have to go into that level of detail at times, though......just what is wrong with some people, anyhow?

    My mother-in-law is a food pusher. If I say no I don't want any, that should end it. But she insists. So I usually tell her I'll try some later and then lie about having it.

    Great tactic. I am not as lucky as you. I have frequent encounters with well-meaning food pushers. I learn to keep a tab on the food I take and balance things out at the end of the day / week.
