Advice Needed on Visiting a Food-Loving Family

Weigh In: Visiting a Food-Loving Family

All you FitSugar readers are always there to offer helpful yet sensitive advice. I recently got a question from one reader that I thought you guys would have some great suggestions for. Here's the question:

Hi FitSugar,
I need some advice. I've lost over 17 pounds in the past few months. I still have 10 to go to meet my goal weight. This weekend I'm heading to my boyfriend's parents' house. I love his parents, but his Mom is notorious for cooking delicious, but very unhealthy foods. She has food laid out at every hour of the day (cookies, breads, chips, cheese and crackers, you name it, and I guarantee it's within arm's reach), which is dangerous because I'm a grazer. How can I enjoy my weekend, not insult her cooking, and not blow my diet all at the same time?
