Why do you care if people read your food diary?

This is a question for the people who have their food diary set to private. I'm just wondering why you care if people read it?

    As "Private" is the default setting, many did not make the choice for their diaries to be private - it came that way and stayed that way.

    When I used to pay attention to my feed, I saw comments about other people's diaries that I'd rather not have to deal with myself. Not necessarily negative; just felt intrusive to me.

    Also, I don't care what other people eat and just don't understand the interest. I feel like there are far better sources for inspiration:

    https://www.177milkstreet.com

    https://cooking.nytimes.com

    And the one reference everyone should have (IMHO):

    https://www.amazon.com/Joy-Cooking-Irma-S-Rombauer-ebook/dp/B00AK78VTA

    Thank you, those are great links 🙏🤗

    That's the truth right there. ^^^

    I didn't think of intrusive or critical comments. To me if someone specifically asks for diet advice/ways they might improve their diet, critical feedback might be ok. But only if done in a kind way and only because the person has sought feedback. We're all doing the best that we can to lose weight and even if we aren't, that's ok too.

    I think mine is set to private just because it's the default setting. I post in the forum but honestly, I don't ever log anything. I'm pretty decent at estimating the calories I ate for the day (occasionally weigh things). I'm also at a weight where I can maintain or I can gain a few pounds and still be well within normal weight, so even if I go over my daily calories a little on a day or two it's fine.

    I am just a private person. It is not true that those with private diaries have something to hide. I am very accurate and measure in grams.

    I will also add that a lot of what I eat is home cooked meals made in the recipe builder. Not sure if people would be able to see the ingredients. I never took the time to make it public.

    Id like to see!! I coyld in grams too and try to make mostly home-cooked meals as well
