Is Your Partner Sabotaging your Nutritional Intentions?

Does your partner gift you candy and chocolates when you are trying to lose weight?

Does your partner bring chips, pop, fast food, desserts and other foods into the house when you are trying to change your eating habits?

Do you have good intentions about what you want to eat and then get to the kitchen and get tempted by something unhealthy your partner is eating or cooking?

Do you ever feel like you have to sneak what you are eating so your partner doesn’t see or make comments?

Does your partner know that you struggle with food?

Does your partner turn his or her nose up at the healthy dinner you took time prepare?

Have you tried to change your diet and feel like you get no support?

It is very common to feel alone in the pursuit of changing your diet and it makes it even harder when your partner is uninterested in coming along for the ride. When one person is trying to be healthy and the other is not invested in their health, it can create a lot of strain and resentment.  

The truth is what you and your partner eat impacts your relationship. What you eat influences your energy, libido, mood, ability to handle stress, how well you sleep, your appearance, your digestive health, your ability to prevent disease and so much more. All of these things matter to the wellbeing of your relationship.

Are you tired of hearing about your partner’s aches and pains? How about the excessive gas?  Is the tossing and turning and snoring ruining your sleep? Do you wish your partner had more sex drive? Do you run for cover when your partner gets “hangry”? Are you worried that your partner’s excess weight is going to lead you down a road of illness? Take stock of all of the things you put up with as a result of your partner’s poor food choices because those food choices impact you.

So why not make it a joined effort? Couples that grow together, stay together. What would your relationship be like if you got healthy together, ate well together, cooked well together and nourished one other. There is a lot to be said about bringing the love back into the kitchen and couples that heat up the kitchen heat up the bedroom too!
