    "Are you cheating on me?"

    "I only cheat once a week...WITH A CHEESEBURGER AMIRITE?"

    9. Sometimes eating out can be a challenge because they're always on a special diet.


    10. And they're forever fiddling with their "gains" calculator to check if something fits into their "macros".


    11. Once a week though, they get a cheat meal and it legit saves your relationship.

    It's what brings you back every time you think you may just break up with them.

    "Did you eat my protein bar?"

    "Yes I thought it was a cookie."

    "Yeah, it kind of is"


    13. But the most misleading of all are those milkshakes they always seem to be drinking.

    "Is that a milkshake?"

    "Sort of, it tastes just like mint chocolate chip."

    *tries milkshake*


    14. They do know how to make pretty good ~healthy~ versions of your favourite foods, though.

    15. And perhaps more importantly, they have an endless supply of tupperware.


    16. They basically inspire you (sometimes) to strive for more.
