Many people feel the need to look at what others eat and criticize them for eating “poorly”, just because they make choices that differ from their own personal beliefs and values. If this pertains to you, it’s worth contemplating, and reevaluating deeper reasons you may project such things.
It’s one thing to have a discussion, with equal respect and open ears about thoughts/ideas about nutrition, but another thing entirely to be a self proclaimed expert or guru who feels a need to impose their beliefs on others.
“You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.” – Friedrich Nietzsche
I obviously think my way is the correct way (for me) or I wouldn’t do as I do, but I’m also always open to new information, flexible to see what works best for me. Personally, I eat the foods that I enjoy and that I believe benefit my health.
What my friends or strangers eat is up to them. I don’t take it personal, nor do I criticize what they eat or feel that I have to lecture them in any way to eat like me. It’s not my place to shame their choices. I’m aware it’s not my business, just as my choices aren’t theirs.
Let people live how they want to live and eat how they want to eat. We can and should still be friends despite differences, if not just being polite with one another regardless of how differently we eat, think, look, etc.
The only time I offer my opinions is if someone specifically asks for my advice or pays for my services.
