    This thread is making laugh, but it also makes me want to cry about our society's screwed up notions of what "healthy" is.
    I thanked my 9-year-old for never "rubbing it in" when she eats something non-compliant (after someone told me her daughter teased her about an ice cream sundae, saying "ha ha, you can't have any!") and now my daughter sweetly pats me on the back each time she eats a treat and says, "Sorry, mom." LOL  Not sure which is worse at this point!

    The two that really get under my skin are:
    "You're following a fad diet." 
    "You're orthorexic"
    Apparently, those are your only two options when you're filling your plate (and your belly) with meat, poultry, eggs, vegetables, fruits, and nuts - you know, the kind of stuff that humans are suited to eat.

    Future husband: I just don't understand why you have to starve yourself.
    Me: I'm never starving. Without cravings I just eat when I get hungry and I feel awesome.
    Him: You know what I mean.
    Me: No dude, I don't.

    "I always thought you could stand to lose some weight"   Did you NOW?!
    "I think people who 'diet' age really quickly in the face"
    There are some people who only want us around to make themselves feel better about  bad eating habits.
