We’ve all been there while on any healthy regiment… Friends that mean well but can actually somewhat sabotage our progress.

“Your sooo good all the time”
“You can have a bite!”
“I don’t know how you do it”
“You only live once”

These comments come from ignorance. Clogging your arteries and gaining weight is no way to make a good life. Here are some ideas to keep your friends close without falling off the wagon:

  • Keep a positive attitude around these friends.
  • Surround yourself with like-minded friends.
  • Go out for coffee instead of desert.
  • Go shopping instead of out for drinks.
  • Invite friends to your place and show what healthy appetizers look like.
  • Always bring healthy appetizers to events that are yummy.
  • Ask an inactive friend to join you on a walk.
  • Talk about your lifestyle changes without being preachy.
  • Brush-off negative remarks.

Sometimes our friends and family take more time getting used to our healthy lifestyles than we do. It’s only our job to change ourselves not others. Hope these tips can help you keep the peace!
