If you are in a relationship where you live together, then you probably eat the same meals as the person that you are with. So, what happens when the person that you are with decides that he or she is going to change his or her diet? What if he or she gives up alcohol? What do you do then? Well, the answer to this is different for everyone, but here are some suggestions.
1. Participate in the change.
You could always join the other person in the diet change or in giving up alcohol. Though this isn't always necessary, it might help show that you support his or her decision. It might also help show that you are supportive of your partner in general.
2. Avoid eating or drinking the item that the other person gave up in front of them.
Encourage your partner to achieve his or her goals. Do your best not to tempt him or her by eating the food that he or she gave up in front of him or her, or if he or she gave up alcohol, avoid drinking in front of him or her.
3. Ask your partner what would help him or her.
Talk to your partner about what would help him or her achieve his or her goals and what you can do to be supportive. Maybe, there is something that the two of you can compromise on that will work for the both of you.
It can be difficult when one person in the household changes his or her diet, but there are ways to work things out that can benefit both people. So, be patient, communicate with your partner, and find a solution that will keep your partner motivated.
