This Issue's Dilemma:
Dealing with hungry coworkers
while sticking with my diet
I'm on a diet and prefer to keep it
to myself. It's not my coworkers' business, and I don't care to explain myself.
I don't want to go out to lunch because most restaurants do not have choices
that fit with my type of diet. Plus, most of them don't have nutritional
information posted online to ensure I make the right choices.
My coworkers sometimes push me to
go to lunch even after I turn them down. I know I'm not the only one in this
situation. How can I deal with this without revealing the details of my diet? Or
do I need to suffer the embarrassment of going to the restaurant and only
ordering no-calorie drinks?
Thanks for participating.
