When you encounter food pushers, remind yourself, “It’s not my responsibility to make others feel good about what they eat and drink, but it IS my responsibility to make healthy choices that make me feel good.” Turning down food doesn’t mean you’re telling food pushers not to eat or drink something, so it’s not your responsibility if they then ultimately decide to change their eating as a result of you saying no.
