hello everybody,


what excuses do you use for not eating together?

i skip meals when my partner is at work and need good excuses for


times, when i have to cook (for him) and don't want to eat any of it.

used the "bad tummy" or already eaten excuse too often already.

what do you say?

thanks in advance ;)

How about the good 'ole "Your face makes me want to vomit, dear." Excuse. 

Seems effective for not having to eat with him, because he will be offended. 

Haha, I'm just shitting you. 

Um, I use the whole "I've already ate a ton today!" excuse. Works well if you're sitting and you lean back and puff out your stomach. 

Either that or if you have a medical reason that can cause stomach pain or upset, just milk that excuse as much as possible. Works for me, but most of the time I'm not entirely lying about it. :)

What if you make him what he wants to eat, and then you make something for yourself that's low cal? A salad, perhaps??

This is how I get out of dinner:
Sit there, cut all your food up, push it around your plate, if the tv is on, watch it, if it isn't, talk a lot, drink a lot of water, put your fork down, pick it up, repeat, have a napkin on your lap and when no ones looking, flick food onto it, then when you get up, slip it into your pocket and dispose of it later, chew your food up a lot so it looks like you're eating a lot, get small portions, if they ask, tell them you'll get some later, then don't, be the last to the table, the last to get your food, and the last to leave the table, go to the bathroom in the middle of it and hang out there for a while to kill some time, use smaller plates and put all your food on it at once so it looks like there's more on your plate. These are all the things I do. It takes a lot of concentration and a good eye cuz you have to time alot of it to make it look like you're eating, but it's easy to get the hang of it.

If you're making the meal, try making less than you normally make and when he asks about it tell him you ate a lot while you were cooking and just have something light or small during the meal. Or skip it entirely if you would prefer.

I convinced my entire family that meat makes me sick to my stomach. Salads all the way!

Tell him you're on your period and the smell makes you want to gag. Pull out the P word, and boys run for the hills and don't question it.

Well I cook for my kids and paetner every night, I always skip meals by cooking early before he gets home from work so his goes in the oven while me and the kids "eat". The kids think I eat with my partner and my partner thinks I eat with him. Though I think he knows now...
Some times il tell him i ate while I was cooking cz I was sooo hungry.

I use the thing where you pretend to eat but take sips out of an opaque cup, so when they think your drinking you spitting food back out, its inda hard at first but you get the hang of it pretty quickly.

i told all of my friends i was going to go vegan for good. i mean i'm not, because i absolutely need the protein i get from jerky (the size and calorie count are both anti-trigger appropriate) before i strength train to tone but it gets me out of eating a lot of the foods they normally would. unfortunately, most of my friends are hipsters so they're too familiar with vegan friendly items, i've noticed. that's only happened once so far and i had to eat and purge but in the future, the "i already ate", "i'm not hungry" or "i just took some medicine and i cant eat for two hours" excuses used to work pretty for me.
