To eat Chocolate in front of DH when he is on a GP imposed Diet

Just eaten a whole bar of Cadburys Fruit and Nut, DH is whimpering and giving me the big eyed treatment, but not sharing with him his GP has him on a diet for a reason.

DH says I am cruel and wicked and that I don't love him and is sulking.

So am I being unreasonable??? I am not on a diet.

GabiSolis Sun 31-Jan-16 11:38:37

I wouldn't do this, it's not very fair is it? Especially if the diet has just started (?).

PurpleDaisies Sun 31-Jan-16 11:38:43

I think you are being quite unhelpful. It is really hard to stick to a diet in the early days and having someone else eating stuff that you really want right in front of you isn't all that supportive. Couldn't you have gone somewhere else?

PurpleDaisies Sun 31-Jan-16 11:39:18

Is this a reverse?

ChubbyPolecat Sun 31-Jan-16 11:42:10

Well it's not very fair to him to be actively trying to derail him

GreatFuckability Sun 31-Jan-16 11:45:23

I think you are both unreasonable and mean.

Really cruel. I'm in your DH position and it's so hard.

Fair enough, you're not on a diet, but do you really have to eat it right in front of his nose?

Yes he's on a diet for a reason but dieting is HARD your know. That's why so many people fail at it even when they desperately want to lose weight.

I presume you care about his health so how about giving him some support? Get lots of healthy snacks in and maybe join him in eating healthier, even if you don't need to lose weight.

Just keep the chocolate out of sight- or better still, send it over to me for safe keeping! grin

I think that's unkind.

Why would you want to be unkind?

NoahVale Sun 31-Jan-16 11:49:55

do you often eat whole bars of chocolate?

NoahVale Sun 31-Jan-16 11:50:43

anyway, you should share imo, so what if he is on a diet, it is up to him

UmbongoUnchained Sun 31-Jan-16 11:51:37

I would grin

ShesaidthenIsaid Sun 31-Jan-16 11:53:11

Very childish and selfish of you.

ricketytickety Sun 31-Jan-16 11:53:12

Dunno, do you want to support him or do you want to make it hard for him?

JohnLuther Sun 31-Jan-16 11:56:07

YABU it's very unsupportive.

EmpressOfTheVulvaCupcakes Sun 31-Jan-16 11:56:34

YABU. It's not fair to eat it in front of him.

RubbleBubble00 Sun 31-Jan-16 11:57:08

not very nice of you

RevoltingPeasant Sun 31-Jan-16 11:59:02

Was this supposed to be 'hilarious'? hmm

ExplodingCarrots Sun 31-Jan-16 12:00:31

Yanbu Imo..and I'm dieting. Just because I'm on a diet it shouldn't stop my DP eating what he wants. He shouldn't have to feel guilty having a chocolate bar and biscuit just because I'm on a diet. You should be able to eat what you want.

5Hearts Sun 31-Jan-16 12:01:38

Think is was pretty unsupportive of you and maybe a bit mean...his reaction seems a bit OTT but the first few days/weeks of giving something up can be pretty tough.

Babymamamama Sun 31-Jan-16 12:03:46

Not nice. Not supportive. Poor dh.

MaisieHerbert Sun 31-Jan-16 12:07:31

Unless you are with your dh 24/7 I don't see why you couldn't wait to have your bar of chocolate. My dh would never do this when I am dieting because he loves and respects me and therefore doesn't deliberately set out to make life harder for me. Dieting is bloody hard.

ToucheShay Sun 31-Jan-16 12:08:46

Very unsupportive of you.

We are in the same position as you, but I would make DH a fruit salad or a jelly and yogurt so he was having a treat too.

paxillin Sun 31-Jan-16 12:09:48

It does look like you're taunting him.

SweetCheeks99 Sun 31-Jan-16 12:09:57


could you not have eaten it another time, or even in another room?
