This means that myself and the other roommate will likely have to make some sacrifices as well during the one meal a day the three of us eat together. Which is fine. I can easily consume anything restricted on his diet that I want during breakfast or lunch. But I'm curious as to how you all would handle the fact that someone you know is setting themselves up to fail?
A little bit of a read over of diet advice on this suggests that planning ahead is key. But neither of my roommates is very good at planning ahead what they're going to eat. Especially on the weekends. I usually go into a weekend with each meal more or less planned out and purchased. They wait until they're starving then simply graze through the fridge or order pizza. I've seen one of them eat nothing but half a bag of potatoes over the course of a weekend because there was nothing else in the house and he didn't feel like ordering pizza or putting on shoes to go hit a drive through.
What's more is that I plan all our joint grocery lists(I have each of them plan 2 meals in a three week period because it's difficult to get them to put in the time to plan more than that).
Also, how do I deal with the sick temptation to start cooking a lot of bacon?
