So the honeymoon is over. You've been with your partner for a while, and you're starting to notice your habits, and make comparisons about the way you both handle things. You can find yourself wondering if you've been doing things the wrong way for years, and you can even find yourself feeling embarrassed about silly things. And, among my female friends, I've noticed the biggest concern is worrying about how much food you consume in comparison to your SO. But there are so many reasons not to be embarrassed about eating more than your partner.
For starters, if you're concerned with the amount of food you're eating, it should be because you're concerned with you're eating. Not because you're concerned with the amount of food you're eating compared to another person, be it your partner, your friends, or your family. Food and nutrition should be considered on a person by person basis. There's no generalizing how much food a person should or shouldn't eat. Especially because food is so personal to so many people. If you're concerned with your eating habits, or think there might be something larger happening with your relationship with food, you should seek out help from a nutritionist or a counselor. If you're simply feeling embarrassed about eating more than your partner, here are some solid reasons that there's no need to be ashamed.
