3. Your significant other isn't interested in supporting you

Food is an important component of your relationship with your significant other. A couple bonds over the meals they share together, from going out on a dinner date, to preparing a homecooked meal together.

When one partner embarks on a diet or lifestyle change, it can be very disruptive to your normal routine as a couple. If your partner isn’t supportive of your decision to make this change, it can even cause tension in your relationship. This added stress can make it harder to stick with your diet plan.

Furthermore, if your significant other is always keeping tempting, unhealthy foods around the house, it’s a lot more difficult to resist the urge to eat foods you shouldn’t. It’s important to have a conversation with your significant other and explain why it’s so important to you that they support you in achieving your goals. If you explain why these goals are so important to you, and why their support means so much to you, they’ll be more likely to understand where you’re coming from and help you reach your goals.
