They're simply uneducated. But i cant tell you how aggrivated i get when they refer to me as "starving myself"
My grandma cooks dinner every sunday after church, and every time she sees me "oh my word, you've lost more weight..u better stop. Here, eat something! "You've gotta eat!" "I made your favorite". "Just a bite"
drives me CRAZY!!! they lierally try to force food down my throat
