    I don't go around randomly liking every post in my feed - but nothing wrong with McDs, pizza, etc. Each person is the judge and jury of their own decisions. No one else has the right to decide my choices are bad/wrong.

    If you want your friends to critique your choices, let them know that. Probably can best reach your friends thru your feed and one on one messages. I personally think it better for people to log honestly than to make a fake log to please internet strangers.

    This is a bit of a problem around here.

    Too many times I see a diary full of McDonalds, and other junk, sweeties and pastries and so called "friends" like the diary and say things like "Great Logging!", "Well done!", or "Yummy day!".

    We are all here to encourage each other to become healthier. If your MFP friend is falling off the wagon, it is your job to remind them that they are making a choice that is bad for them. Maybe they are letting old ways creep back in without realising it?

    Do your friends a favour and let them know that they are going wrong. I would expect the same for the rest of my friends on MFP. Be hard on me if you see a slice of Pizza or a McDonalds happy meal on my diary!

    It's time to stop blindly congratulating people on making bad choices that can ultimately lead to lower quality of life and ultimately, death!

    Edit: I know I sound grumpy and normally I am not. Just concerned that's all :)

    Well, this put a delightful smile on my cold, black heart for the night. Well done, everyone.

    In my experience, attempting to influence the life choices of adults who are going to do whatever they want regardless is a futile effort.

    I fail to see an issue with an occasional happy meal or slice of pizza if the rest of one's diet is nutritionally sound and within the correct calories. It is that sort of extreme, of cutting out all such things, that often leads people to failure. Personally, I am not that big on McDonalds and pizza, but many here have lost a lot of weight, become healthier and got to low bodyfat levels while eating ice cream, pizza and McDonalds, because they ensure that they meet their other nutritional requirements.

    This!

    For a lot of people this is Not A Diet but a lifestyle, so if someone has a naughty day and keep within their limits, who am I to judge if they can treat themselves or not? I am not a junk food junkie but it takes guts to be honest in the logging and showing your junk as well as your good stuff.

    I am horrible. I go around liking everything and never even look at the diary. To me it's progress just to log everything and hit complete.

    You should be ashamed. How dare you not judge your friends' habits.

    as long as people are staying within their calorie allowance whats wrong with the occasional treat???? if u were to say to me that I would never be allowed a slice of pizza, chocolate etc again id give up before id even started!!. Nothing wrong with a little bit of what u like every now and then as long as u stick to your allowance

    While I understand there is an apparent need to tell people on the Internet that they are wrong, please don't bump threads over a year old when there are already 13 pages of people telling them they're wrong. It just stays the argument all over again when the OP probably learned their lesson a year ago.

    Ahhh well, I'm doing this all wrong then. Let me start stalking everyone's diary and judging everyone. I'm gonna change my name to Jesus while I'm at it.
