HOW DO YOU HANDLE PEOPLE WHO KEEP TRYING TO FEED YOU WHEN YOU’RE TRYING TO LOSE WEIGHT?

DEAR DALI MAMA:

How do you handle people who keep trying to feed you when you’re trying to lose weight? I am on a very restricted diet for health reasons, but my family and friends keep trying to practically force-feed me—unhealthy stuff, too, like desserts, pasta, and things generally swimming in gravy and fat.

DEAR F.:

You need to train them to respect your new eating habits. Don’t go into resistance to them trying to feed you (as most of them are probably doing it out of love). Just politely keep saying, “Thank you but I have had enough.” When they pile food on your plate despite your protests, just leave the food on the plate, untouched. Eventually, they’ll get the message.
