Hi Everyone, I am new here and I just started dieting (again) this week. I have a serious problem with my husband. He is diabetic but you'd never know it by his diet! He has candy stashed all over the house and he is always asking me to cook things that are very fattening. If I tell him I am going to eat something healthy and he doesn't want the same thing then he goes out and gets fast food, and not the healthy stuff, either. I have told him his diet is bad and that he should eat better but he doesn't listen. Now that I am dieting (again) it is really hard to see candy/cake/cookies all over the house. Any ideas on how to get through to him? It's one thing for him to ruin his own health, but I really need to lose weight and he is not helping me at all.
