Pinoy Culture vs. Diet

Sometimes, habits engrained in Pinoy culture aren't so kind to dieters or those on the chubby side. What are they? How do you react? How did you react? What do you do to deal with them?
- Outright saying "Uy, ang taba mo na!" or "Tumaba ka!" - In my chubby days, I got my fair share of this, and ironically, they were from people who themselves were rather large. I was hurt, but I ended up using it as fuel to motivate my weight loss efforts. When I hear those people tell me now "Uy, pumayat ka na!" and they're still large, I just want to shout four-letter words at them!
- Insisting on eating at social events or parties, even when you mention you're on a diet. They make fun of you and don't respect your decision.
- And sometimes, in the office, commenting on my food choices at lunch every single time! "Ba't hindi ka kumakain ng kanin?" or "Uy, kumakain ka ng kanin!" I like rice, but I don't have to eat it at every single meal! Sometimes, I want a sandwich or pasta too. To that, I just retort, "Eh type ko, eh."
