Anyone else tired of having food pushed on them?

Example:

"Today there is free ice cream in the cafeteria at 2:30"

"I'll skip it"

"You don't like ice cream?"

"No thanks, not today"

"You are skinny, you don't have to worry"

"No, I'll skip it"

"But, it is free....at 2:30!"

"No, that's okay"

"Boy, that is strange, but suit yourself"

Sounds disturbingly similar to your alcoholic buddy that that keeps pestering you to go drink warm, generic-label beer with him all afternoon in his garage...

Let's get this into perspective, here.

The quantity of food being pushed makes ALL the difference...

Yeah, when it gets annoying, the food tends to lose it's appeal.

As the pushers are usually pushing high carb something or other I simply tell them I'm diabetic (I am) and they stop pronto.

For construction meetings my boss would often bring bagels thinking they were healthy. Hey, that plain bagel has more carbs than a Krispy Kreme glazed doughnut!

Actually, I am very tired of people or organizations or government bureaucracies pushing their agendas or ideas FOR or AGAINST any particular food or type of nutrition or amount of portion on me or others.

Something works for you ? Great ! Something doesn't seem good to you ? Well, OK. But generally people and groups should switch off "proselytize mode" for types/portions/diet.

Let’s not get DOBed here :-).

I am watching my blood sugar, even though I am thin.
I have ice cream on weekends occasionally.
I would rather take my carbs in a nice IPA.
I don’t need ice cream at 2:30 on a weekday,
just because it is free and “fun”. Man, you turn
down free ice cream and people think you are strange :-).

Whenever someone offers me something (not just food) and I want to politely refuse, I usually say, "thank you, but I'm a Lutheran."

Most folks know what a Lutheran is (sort of a Catholic without all the rules and confession to a priest)...but they're too polite to question another person's religion or their practices. End of discussion.

I've had a few more savvy people call me on this, and if they do, I smile and say, "I'm not really a Lutheran, but it usually works."
