How to Deal with Comments about Weight & Eating

Do you have family members who make comments about your weight, other people’s weight, their own weight, or what you should and shouldn’t eat?

Do you have friends or family who are always talking about their latest diet?

It’s summer vacation, which for many of us means eating meals with family members we don’t see all the time. For some of us, that’s a blessing. For others, it can be very difficult and stressful. 

For many people, dealing with their extended family is wrought with all kinds of mixed emotions and potentially difficult interactions.

As a weight coach, one thing I hear repeatedly from my clients is that they have family members who make comments about how they look, their weight, or their food choices.

Some people come from families where the significance of appearance, and weight in particular, carries undue importance.

Then there’s that person at the table, be it friend or family member, who has to tell everyone about their latest miracle diet. 

Stay tuned and learn why their comments are NOT OK, not well-meaning, and how to deal with them gracefully. 

I’ll give you some tips about how to deal with these situations.

About the author 

Shari Broder

My mission is to help foodies ditch dieting and lose the weight for good. Discover what is really causing your weight issues (it isn't that you love food!), and learn how to stop obsessing about food and make peace with food and eating. Get off the diet hamster wheel once and for all and learn to eat consciously, stop emotional eating and enjoy the foods you love while permanently losing your desire to overeat.

  1. I realized years after I actually put on weight, that I wasn't even overweight when I heard so many remarks about it from my family and others.
    This has made me very careful about making remarks about people's appearance. If I can't find anything good to say, I keep quiet!
