Ok. That's a COMPLETELY different question - people who whine and kvetch and then never do anything about their problems, which are obvious to solve, are very irritating.

I don't care what my friends eat at all. We go out to eat, some will order the large beef enchilada plate and dessert, and eat it all. Some will order salmon and greens, and eat half.

I really don't care.

I guess there are just some things that I wished that I had never heard. I can't believe some people have such strong opinions regarding other peoples eating habits. My mother struggles with eating right, although shes not fat. Shes one of the best people I've ever known. I love her to death. It saddens me to think that someone would detest her simply because she likes to eat at buffets. She teaches Sunday school, and donates a lot of money to the poor. Eating right is her one struggle in life. But that doesn't mean that she is lazy or doesn't exercise.

I've known people who were competitive athletes and also had very bad eating habits. But one thing I've noticed, is that the athletes who have long and successful careers are the ones who eat good food. Those who ate mostly fast-food and other junk, tended to drop out of athletics after their high-school or college years were over. They also seemed more susceptible to injuries. But which of those things is the cause and which is the effect? Did their bad diets and lack of interest in continued training and fitness have a common origin?

I should add that where I live, many of these athletes were national champions or even world-class and some were so well-known, that their names were familiar outside of sports circles.

The original comment made by the poster I was answering wasnít just about health.

I know and agree, I need to step away from the self-righteous, shallow judgement I see sometimes. It's so sad to think we walk among people who would toss a person's friendship away over diet.

I've known more than my share of vegans and yoga practitioners and meditators who would run you down in a parking lot in their 6000# SUV and give you the finger just to beat you to a parking space.

Yes. Because I know personally what a struggle it can be. Me passing judgement on my friends isn't going to make their journey any easier.

Yes because as a good friend itís not my job to solve their problem or judge them but just to listen, just to let them vent.

I don't think I know anyone who eats fast food every day, or even every other day. Are you sure you're not exaggerating/?

I can't eat most vegetables. They make me gag.

I won't associate with someone who has bad grammar unless they eat what they enjoy.
