Intermittent Fasting, Interrupted


I want to begin intermittent fasting but don’t want to deal with my husband’s complaining about it. It seems to bother him whenever I do something towards my health. He gets very snarky and critical because to him, it’s all a fad. Eating together is very important to him so when I have done I.F. in the past, it was always met with him huffing and puffing about it. I want to start again but I’m finding it hard simply because I know how he will react. Dinner time becomes a hostile experience between us because he doesn’t understand why I want to do this. It’s weird but I actually think he feels threatened. I don’t need him to be supportive, I just wish he didn’t give me a hard time about it. How can I move forward with my I.F. goals when it bothers my husband so much and I have to hear about it?

C – I.F.
T – Dinner time becomes a hostile experience between us because he doesn’t understand why I want to do this.
F – Discouraged
A – not plan my fast schedule or meal plan, snack too much, not talk about I.F.,
R – Not sure why I want to do this (since it will only be met with hostility)

I can write out my intentional model but really, I know that I want him to change his attitude about this, which is my manual talking. Grrr!

C – I.F.
T – I want him to change his attitude about this.
F – Frustration
A – I’m curt or hostile in talking at dinner time, hold back
R – I have a bad attitude about this.

I don’t know where to go from here 🙁
