Are You on The Boyfriend Diet?

by Marissa on October 13, 2011


There are boyfriend jeans and boyfriend sweaters and then there is the boyfriend diet. All may be comfy, but one will leave you feeling pretty crappy. For years, I thought I was the only person who struggled to balance my healthy diet with the favorite foods of a hungry boyfriend.

I’ve never been one to leave my boyfriend to fend for himself for dinner or to make two separate meals. Besides, I love connecting at the end of a long day over tasty food that is made with love. As I began health coaching, I realized that many women face a similar challenge that goes something like this: It’s so hard to adopt healthy habits and make good food choices when my boyfriend/husband/fiance/partner likes to eat burgers and fries.

Experience taught me how to  manage the situation, and not let it manage me.  How, you ask? It comes down to a few simple tips:

  • Be an example: Healthy choices beget healthy choices
  • Compromise: Look for progress, not perfection
  • Focus on the delicious: Choose whole foods and make them taste great
  • Stay committed: Soon he’ll want to eat the foods that are making you vibrant, energetic and beautiful from the inside out

Over the years, I’ve discovered some healthy, heartier recipes that are perfect for a man-sized appetite and are boyfriend tried, tested — and approved! In fact, I’ve been so inspired by this topic, that I created a recipe eBook, MAN vs. HEALTHY: 25 Boyfriend-Approved Healthy, Hearty Recipes, to get you on your way to delicious, healthy meals that everyone will love.
