Not your diet, not your problem. If he can't find the willpower to say no, either he'll build it up over time or his diet will fail. You MAY consider keeping healthier snacks at your place, but only if it's something you like and you're going to eat. No reason you should disrupt your life to accomodate his bad habits unless you promised that you'd do what you could to help him out.

sometimes people feel left behind because they are behind. living in momma's basement listening to her advice still at 25. what level are you in world of warcraft? comes a point in every boys life where they need to man up and take on the world.

ammunra: I respectfully disagree with you (even though I secretly agree with you). If I was committed to my partner and he was struggling with something, I'd do what I could to help him. If he was trying to cut down on drinking, I wouldn't have much alcohol around, if any. If he was wanting to be more active, I'd come up with a laundry list of activities we could do together to be active together. When I commit to someone, I want to support someone. I don't think of it as a sacrifice to my own self, because I can do these things on my own (eat junk food at work, drink at the local bars, be lazy/inactive on my own) but I find it hugely important to support others with whatever they're doing to help themselves or others. But that 's just me.
