My mother is overweight, she had to have a new knee, that troubled her a lot and she has dizzy spells where she has to sit down.
When I talk to her about eating healthy, she's convinced she's already doing that by eliminating all fats and meat.
She feeds french fries to the dog, but no meat since that's bad for him.
My father is skinny fat.
I have lost nearly 25kg in 3 years and I feel great.
However, they lecture me on health and food regularly. Perhaps it has something to do with seeing me in diapers and whiping my ass. That was over 45 years ago though.
My brother talked to me about loosing weight a couple of months ago, so I told him what I know: lift weights, eat healthy. He was thinking about starting to run. I advised against it, warning him it would be hard on the knees. 2 weeks later I see him, he's limping with a bad knee.
My sister wanted to strengthen her legs. My brother, still limping, advised her to start running. I told her to start riding a bike, showed her goblet squats. She bought those massai walking shoes instead.
My mother is convinced I have high blood pressure and bad cholesterol. I went for my anual check the other day, everything was fine. Doctor was very happy. Mum tells me that's because I have her genes, and not my dads. "but ma, don't you have high blood pressure and bad cholesterol also, and you eat healthy, avoiding all meat and fats?"
I stopped being irritated by this about a decade ago.
