You Eat For Your Partner's Needs

When your partner isn't concerned about overeating habits, it can be hard to stay on track when you cook and eat together. Cynthia Sass, MPH, RD, has a helpful tip for when you're cooking at home: "We'll have similar ingredients, but make different things. I have to make peace with the fact that we don't have the same needs, or maybe we're not on the same page as far as our goal." For example, on taco night, Sass enjoys a healthy taco salad with avocado and pico de gallo, while her husband goes for a big burrito with all the fixings.
