do you guys relate to this?
I know myself and other people I know that workout share this. Even though i eat clean, I eat more than sedentary people. At times they will comment on the amount of food. Although i am much leaner than any of them, it sometimes bothers me especially since I use to have food issues. What are your thoughts on how much more we (people who weight train) need, and do you ever deal with this? it annoys me at times.

Myself, my training partner, and my girlfriend (all powerlifters) went out to eat last week with my dad after a deadlifting session, the three of us ordered 5 entrees and 2 appetizers. My dad had a chicken salad lol. He was shocked at how much we all put down. I take pride in it, even though paying for that much food everyday sucks.
No reason to have anxiety about it man.

A chick once had to stop watching me eat because she found it a little sickening... I found that reaction hilarious... It's all good man... If you were overweight & stuffing your face, that'd be a reason to be ashamed...

Granted these are cheat meals, but I'm sure he puts down a ton of (healthy) food every day. Gotta fuel the furnace!

The running joke amongst all our friends and family is how much I eat. They always know to make extra because I will either be grazing or eating twice as much as the next person. It doesn't bother me in the least.

But my gf now a days knows to order extra when we eat out.. She's used to my eating habits and doesn't mind them. Took about 3 years, but now She's a keeper.

I actually had a sushi chief grown when he saw my dad and my little brother and me walk into the bar. It was an all you can eat joint and he knew how much we put away.
Hit me up with any questions any time.

Granted the food wont be great, but to be social and interact with your family/friends will be far more important that weighing out food on a scale when you look back you may laugh at your actions. Think about how much one meal will really hurt you in 2 days or maybe a week? your weight will baseline so its not really going to be a major factor.
personally i IF, so some of my meals are large, some are small. If i am going to eat out or with family/friends ill eat lighter in the day (if i eat out later) or vice versa ifi eat out earlier and cut back later, and just move on and try on and focus on hitting your protein intake and overall kcals if possible. if its a cheat meal who cares have one a week and move on, and realize your training and diet the other 6 days of the week and rest of your meals will be in check.

i find that most of the ppl i know have a harder time wrapping their head around me eating clean food more than the amount...i also get ppl who comment on how often i eat.
for example i work in an office and ppl always bring in donuts that i won't eat and ppl think i'm crazy for not eating any of the donuts....they also don't understand how i eat between the start of the work day and lunch and that i eat again between lunch and closing time
my last g/f and i had a good system, she thought it was funny that i could eat a huge meal so when we'd go out she knew i'd eat my meal and then finish off whatever she didn't eat...no doggybags

Exactly. If you're hiding in your car and refusing your families food that they prepared for you with love, you've got some psychological problems. Plus, it's a bit of insult to your family. If your constantly strict, that's not good for your gains either....Somethings gotta give and eventually it will, and it won't be pretty. I don't mean to sound like and ass, I'm just being realistic.

People think holidays and meals out are the death of them when in reality none of us in here are going pro, none of us in here are 2 weeks out
1 meal with friend chicken or not hitting or protein intake means nothing in a day or two when our weight will baseline and we are back in our groove with gym and hitting calories.

I compete, but in the offseason or even in prep i had cheats all the way up through prep. As hard as it was to sometimes avoid foods at special times it was for a reason, but if its the offseason or even during a rebound i would not stress it and just get back on the wagon the next day.

This is mental and in some people's minds, living this way makes them healthier and look/feel better. I find it the complete opposite and know that it makes no difference, but if it is in your head that it is, then it is hard to change that thought process.

Doing IF I always get people to comment on my meals...
Where I live we often go to a "pay by the lb" buffet. I am always hitting 2 - 2.5lbs on my plate and everyone else is sub 1lb. In the end of the day, all it matters is how you feel and what the mirror tells you. You canīt go by "regular" people, just like I can never tell anyone that I fast for 16 hours a day without having to hear OMG, thatīs soooo bad for you! Your metabolism is going to be so slow!
I just shrug it off, no point in trying to explain to them that Menīs Health magazine ainīt a scientific publication.
