There are boyfriend jeans and boyfriend sweaters and then there is the boyfriend diet. All may be comfy, but one will leave you feeling pretty crappy. For years, I thought I was the only person who struggled to balance my healthy diet with the favorite foods of a hungry boyfriend.
I’ve never been one to leave my boyfriend to fend for himself for dinner or to make two separate meals. Besides, I love connecting at the end of a long day over tasty food that is made with love. As I began health coaching, I realized that many women face a similar challenge that goes something like this: It’s so hard to adopt healthy habits and make good food choices when my boyfriend/husband/fiance/partner likes to eat burgers and fries.
Experience taught me how to manage the situation, and not let it manage me. How, you ask? It comes down to a few simple tips:
- Be an example: Healthy choices beget healthy choices
- Compromise: Look for progress, not perfection
- Focus on the delicious: Choose whole foods and make them taste great
- Stay committed: Soon he’ll want to eat the foods that are making you vibrant, energetic and beautiful from the inside out
