1 in 4 Will Sabotage a Friend's Diet

January 16, 2014 2 min read

Oh gosh...I think I've been one of those people.  Your friend is on a diet...they look like they are suffering to terribly and you feel badly for eating "badly" so you try and offer them a cookie...or a glass of wine...or cake.  Cake's delicious.  Who doesn't like cake? A survey of US adults has shown some of the reasoning behind why sabotaging has become so mainstream.  28% of respondents said that when friends diet they lose their fun and carefree side and quickly become boring and therefore try to avoid them.  Respondents were also asked about how they react to their friends' diets, it turns out that 26 per cent of will actively try and sabotage a friend's efforts to lose weight. So what's the big deal?  So you're friend's on a diet.  If you're like me, there's nothing sinister in trying to get a dieting friend to eat a cookie.  You just want them to loosen up a bit, to not take life so seriously, and to not take part in any sort of deprivation dieting. What's rather mind boggling is that men are almost twice as likely (39%) to do the sabotaging than women (20%).  Maybe you're worried that your friend won't go out to drinks or dinner with you anymore and that they'll just want to work out and eat salad all day.  Not super likely, but hey. So how to change?  Stop offering about food.  Stop talking about food.  Dieting is hard enough without friends and family getting in the way and trying to undo all your good work.  If you're the one dieting and you have a beef with friends about their behavior-confront them and tell them they aren't helping.  So often its unconscious and it really does take a little getting used to.  It's also not the end of the world if you get tempted into a slice of that double chocolate cake.  Just learn from it and move on.
