Every individual is different from the other. Hence, their likes and dislikes are also bound to differ. When we talk about couples, it is not necessary that both the partner share similar tastes. Although trivial it might sound, but food fights are very common between couple these days.
Problem arises when one of you likes to try new dishes while the other one might not like to experiment. You might like to eat junk food, whereas your partner might be health-conscious. As a result, you either surrender or end up fighting on such issues. Read on as we give you some common scenarios that might lead to food fights between couples and some effective tips to solve them.
You are a foodie while your partner is a picky eater
So, you went with your partner to a new restaurant and you are thinking of trying out different dishes. You propose the idea to your partner anticipating a nod from him/her. But your partner wants to order regular food. So, what are you going to do? Drop the idea of trying a new dish and stick to the regular options?
Well, here is a better solution. Order a new dish and convince your partner to try it out with you. If he/she likes it, then order one more and if not, then place the regular order while you enjoy your new meal. This way you both will be satisfied with your meal and will not return home disheartened or empty stomach.
Your partner tempts you with delicious food when you are dieting

And, this is all because of your beloved spouse, who tempts you with some or the other delicious dish.
So, here is another way to handle such situations. Whenever you start your fight against fat, tell your spouse how much is this important to you and ask them to be supportive.
