That's a really tough one. A friend of mine was really interested in eating this way, but her SO won't make ANY changes to his chips/soda/burger diet to support her, so she gave up. I don't have a good idea, except that perhaps you simply have to cook for yourself and let your SO fend for themself.

Good luck!!!

Since I'm always trying to deal with my fibro, if anyone comments, I just tell them I'm trying to eat as close to natural as possible to help with my pain level. I usually don't call attention to eating vegan. But I still often choose to skip the meat. A lot of people don't even notice.

I'm laughing at myself - When I wrote the above I could not figure out what SO meant so I just gave how I deal with other people in general. So here's my real answer: I fix my husband a protein I would normally fix for him and we have salads together. Summer weather makes it even easier because grilled veggies is a favorite for both of us. He is supportive because he knows how much I want to lose this weight and that eating better helps with my pain levels.
