    Default Do you feel that you must eat foods you know you should not?

    I don't really get this. Yes, once in a while I do a bad thing. Like when
    I ODed on the Swedish Fish. And before you decide to make nasty comments
    about that, and you know who you are, that was several years ago. I have
    learned that there are just certain things I can not bring into the house
    ever. And perhaps some things that if I do bring them into the house can
    only be purchased in small quantities. Anyway...

    Once again we have a family birthday celebration. For the last one, I was
    told that there would be fruit purchased for Angela. I think perhaps some
    people in the family thought that Angela wanted fruit because for her
    birthday I got her one of those edible arrangements. It actually wasn't
    really the fruit that she wanted but the special, pretty thing that most
    people probably never get. She didn't even eat much of the fruit. Just a
    few pieces. And I had tried to get one that didn't contain anything she
    couldn't eat but sadly there was pineapple on it.

    Anyway... For the last birthday, the family member told us that fruit had
    been purchased for Angela. It was described as a fruit platter. This upset
    Angela somewhat because almost always those fruit platters contain fruit
    that she loves but isn't on her diet. She is not allowed to have raisins,
    pineapple or watermelon. And she loves pineapple and watermelon which is
    what this fruit platter mostly was. So she was pretty unhappy to have to
    have that sitting right in front of her. She wasn't hungry and she didn't
    want any fruit. But she was pushed and pushed and pushed and she finally
    took two pieces of melon.

    So now this same family member said she wasn't going to have anything to do
    with the food for this birthday and that my brother and I would have to sort
    it out. He contacted me and asked me what we wanted to eat? I did ask my
    husband and Angela. Both said they wanted nothing. Fine. With us anyway.
    But not with this other family member. Currently we are all having dietary
    issues. So the way I see it, the rest of the family should be fine with it
    if we say that we do not want dessert. But no. We are being pushed and
    pushed and pushed. Well not me so much because I think by now they all know
    that I say that I do not want to eat dessert. I don't think they believe me
    in any way shape or form and they keep trying to tempt me with things but
    all that does is make me angry.

    So I was told to get something anyway. Seeing as how my husband's birthday
    is among what we are celebrating. And past experience has taught me that
    nobody in the family wants to take home any extra dessert, including us!
    Because if it is here, my husband will eat it. And he is trying not to eat
    that sort of stuff. So I told my brother that I would get something for
    him. And what I bought is a piece of something called "Two Person Cake".
    To me it looks like it would feed 4 or 6 but then I don't like cake. I also
    picked up a small lemon cake and a small pan of frosted brownies because I
    knew that the food pusher relative loves these things. She has since seen
    them and is very pleased about it. But that just wasn't good enough.

    Tonight she called and insisted that she was going to get some fruit for
    Angela. I said, no. Please do not do that. Angela does not want any
    fruit. We went shopping yesterday and again today and I asked her both
    times about the fruit. She did not want it. I don't blame her. Like me,
    she is just not hungry at about 2 hours after dinner and does not want to
    eat. Anyway... This person snapped at me over the phone and demanded,
    "Well then what DOES she want to eat?" And I said, "Nothing. I asked her.
    We both want nothing." Then she snapped at me in a very angry tone of
    voice, "Well! That's just no fun!" *sigh*

    I just don't know how to put an end to this and it would seem that I
    probably can not. One person who will be coming is thin. Really thin. As
    in, getting medical attention for it. The other is a fairly normal weight
    to perhaps slightly thin. Had to tell really because this person wears
    baggy clothes. But this person doesn't really like sweets, like me. And
    for some odd reason, people don't seem to get angry with him when he
    declines the sweets. I just really don't get that. But the others? All
    overweight to grossly obese. All either diabetic, pre-diabetic or at least
    have some sort of issue to where they should not be eating sweets. But as
    usual, they will not only eat them but eat a lot of them. And then they
    will complain because they did so.

    So I guess I just don't get where the fun part comes in. How is it fun to
    eat something that you know you should not eat? Especially when you are
    going to have pain or guilt or even in some cases, actual illness
    afterwards? I could see it I guess if they felt the need to have some sort
    of festive food and then everyone could take a fork and take a bite of it.
    That would actually make sense to me because not much harm would have been
    done. But that's not what they're going to do.

    I also don't understand why we are being so bad or wrong or whatever they
    think we are being by declining the food. It's not like the person who is
    taking offense actually cooked or baked the food. It's all purchased stuff.
    *sigh*

    Just tell them that instead of all of that purchased stuff, like brownies,
    two person cakes, lemon cakes, etc. you
    will spend the money on your health insurance and everyone will be much
    healthier.

    Ha! I wish! The food pusher did offer to pay me back. But we bought the
    food at Winco so it really didn't cost much.

    I do sometimes think that I have a touch of Orthorexia though. When I was
    putting the food away that I bought today, I was thinking how if one of
    those people that goes through the fridge and tells you what you could do
    better...such as you sometimes see on various TV shows were to see my
    fridge, they would be pleased.

    We do seem to be going through fruit at an alarming rate, but... I do know
    that most fruit is one of the best things to be eating for gout and since my
    husband is suffering from that I am not going to say anything now. He will
    be leaving soon enough and then I'll get some fridge space back.

    They wouldn't find any junk food at all in my fridge.

    Yes, and sadly this is very true. We were fine for the most part when we
    lived in NY (Staten Island) but I did have some trouble during the winter
    months finding any good fresh produce. I mostly bought that at the Army
    base in Brooklyn.

    The supermarket that was closest to me tended not to have fresh produce. I
    was surrounded by little mom and pop stores which might have a very small
    amount of produce. One only carried bananas, carrots, apples and onions
    that were kept at room temp. Some of the others might have some produce
    but it was not fresh.

    When we lived there I resorted to keeping large amounts of dried vegetables
    for use in soups and casseroles when need be.

    But I did have a vehicle and even though I might have had to drive quite a
    few miles to a store that might (or might not) have good produce, I at least
    did have that option. There were plenty of people who did not have a
    vehicle and could only get to places by foot or by bus. And this is a very
    common problem in a lot of cities.

    The dessert portion of the party was actually kind of funny. My bro brought
    some muffins and some ice cream. A few people ate some ice cream. Only one
    person ate a muffin. One tiny piece of the chocolate cake was eaten. One
    brownie was eaten and also a 1" square of another brownie. One piece of the
    lemon cake was eaten. The food pusher not only bought a big tub of
    cantaloupe but a bag of sliced green apples. Once in a while I will eat a
    green apple but I'm not really into fruit. Angela hates that kind of apples
    but ate a few pieces to be polite. She also ate some of the melon. My
    brother ate a few apple slices.

    The food pusher also left a bowl of fruit slices (jelly candy) out on the
    coffee table. I could be wrong on this but I have a feeling she did that in
    an attempt to make me eat some. I did in fact eat 4 pieces of the candy
    which I know I should not have. I think this was a very mean thing for her
    to have done. That is one kind of candy that I will never buy any more
    because usually once I start eating it, I can't stop myself. I did not
    however eat all of my dinner because the food was mostly really bad. The
    beans were pretty good although a bit salty.

    I think the food pusher really feels guilty about eating the sweets that she
    shouldn't be eating and in some way is making herself feel better by
    tempting others into eating foods that they shouldn't eat. That is how it
    seems to me.

    She then got really angry when we all refused to take any of the food home.
    She did finally get my husband to say that he would take the cake. But she
    got super angry when I said that we could not take the fruit. We literally
    have no room in the fridge and I told her this yesterday. We bought fruit
    at Costco and it comes in really large containers. We will have far less
    food in there after my husband leaves but right now he is eating a lot of
    fruits and we're all trying to eat a lot of raw veggies. There is no way I
    could get that big tub of melon in there right now. And I won't put food in
    my little fridge because I don't think it keeps a safe temp. all of the
    time. I only use it for drinks that are preferably served at least cool but
    don't have to be chilled. And the freezer part holds blue ice.

    the problem here isn't your other family members, it's that you allow them to
    ignore your dietary wishes...and the reason you do that is so that you can come
    here after every family meal and complain about what your family is trying to do
    to you. You are enabling their behaviour and it is entirely your fault
