I take the whole cutting weight/bodybuilding diet/hitting macros thing pretty seriously and I'm kinda known in my groups for having a cooler full of meals in my truck, eating at certain times, protien shakes etc (yes I know meal timing isn't important. I like it. That's all. That's my reason for it.)
Anyways over thanksgiving, and now over Christmas, or whenever I decide to "cheat", I get comments about what's on my plate, what I'm eating etc. It's *kitten* annoying. It's "Omg you're eating bread" or "you know that's fried right?" Or "he won't eat ham it's too unhealthy" or "omg you're having 2 beers that's a lot of calories"
I probably heard this stuff 20 times in the last day and its damn annoying. I usually don't say anything or if I'm really irritated I say "yup. I do what I want" or something along those lines, nothing confrontational. But boy do I want to fire back. I don't, but I want to.
I don't get this. I don't comment on other peoples food. I don't say "oh, more cake huh?" Or "12 deep fried cheese sticks". It's getting old, really old. I want to say "Yes, I eat ultra lean meats so I can save my dietary fats for eating peanut butter by the table spoon. *kitten* off." When people say stuff like "oh he won't eat that it's not grassfed organic and massaged by monks" I wanna lose my *kitten*. That's not even close to true, the only thing in my fridge right now that organic is the ground elk, and I never even come close to saying stuff like that. I don't really even say anything about my food unless someone asks.
So, the debate is, what is the appropriate way to deal with these sort of comments? I can't be the only one who gets them. Is just being quiet or saying something non confrontational the right answer? Is it ever ok to fire back with a sharp tongue? Sould one try to explain things?
