Right before I got married my future mother-in-law told me "I tried to teach him to eat. It's your problem now. Good Luck."
We are several days into an 1800 calorie diabetic diet. It is a very, VERY balanced diet. Almost anything can be enjoyed on this diet in the portions allowed on the diet. There is only one snack and that is in the evening. It isn't a bad diet, I am following it as well and have lost five pounds. The thing to get used to is having just a small amount of starch and not eating between meals.
Ok, so my husband has done really well but he is now beginning to balk about the food. I am not a chef. I am not even a very good home cook. I mean, one time when I was pregnant with my daughter, we ate boxed mac and cheese five nights in a row. Doing all of this is clearly out of my comfort zone.
So, he complained about the green beans at lunch and offered to take me out to dinner. He said I needed a break. I think HE needs restaurant food which we are supposed to be weaning ourselves from.
I had to have our daughter "speak" to him. Sad.
I am thinking of sending him for a little visit to his sister.
