Is Dieting Harder When Living With Others?
My mom was pretty much on a diet for as long as I can remember, but then again, she was a nutritionist, so what everyone else might consider absolute food torture was just another day in her low-glucose, high-fiber, low-fat, high-protein, well-balanced, preservative-free life. Needless to say, this webcomic definitely reminds me of her. (Sorry that my Halloween candy and bake sale fundraisers always seemed to complicate your food discipline, Mom!)

Do you diet sometimes? Do you live alone or with other people - like your immediate family or college roommates? Do you find that living with others complicates your diet or makes it easier?

I don't diet. I honestly feel dieting is bad for you. I will occasionally try to consume more dairy, and I do take my vitamins. I'm also a really bad person to be around if you're trying to diet. in my book ice cream and cheese cake are cure-alls, and you should eat until you feel full whenever you feel hungry. I have a hoard of chips and chocolate at my desk too

I find it very hard living in a house with 7 people and three of them being children. My parents and husband loves fried food and I'm trying to incorporate healthier dishes into the menu but it can be hard sometimes

LOL Yes, this I understand! I don't "diet", but I am Very conscientious about what I eat, especially during competitions. I try to make sure the minion eats just as healthy. Keyword: Try. I succeed most of the time. But I'll come home and my dad (an amazing chef and babysitter lol) will have cooked something sinfully delicious. Of course, the kid either brings me his plate unfinished ("I'm full, Mommy") or I get the "you should eat, too" speech from dad while I'm trying to collapse on the couch or grade the boy's schoolwork for the day. The next thing you know, there I am eating homemade sins. Again. *sigh* The struggle is real.

Oh living with my family definitely complicates my diet. My Mom is always like I saw these bags of chips and I know they are your favorite kind so I bought one for you. I mean that is very kind Mom but I am trying to be on a diet lol.
