Ben and I both have weight and food issues. We’ve lost weight together and learned how to eat healthy together. We also both love to work out! We’re so lucky! Not about the food part but that we have similar struggles so we are able to lean on and help each other.
I’ve noticed in a lot of relationships where one person in the relationship can eat whatever they want and not gain an ounce while the other person has trouble controlling their weight and their relationship to food.
The person with the food issues suffers while the person without food issues can’t understand why other people even have issues with food.
Weight loss can a tricky subject in these types of situations.
Both people need to show each other love, support, and respect throughout the process. The dieting person needs to respect the non-dieting person and not expect them to change their habits or way of eating. The non-dieting person needs to show the dieting person support and encouragement without judging them or giving them advice.
Here are a few articles that might give you some ideas on how to deal with specific situations.
