I tend to eat too much Chex Mix and not enough veggies when we have visitors saying with us. My protein consumption seems to take a back seat, as well, and I find myself asking the husband, "But what is your brother going to think if we go out to dinner and I order steak and ribs?"
So when it's just me and the husband at home with the brown dogs again, I eat my protein shakes and 8 ounces of meat in one sitting without worry. I don't serve potatoes with every meal - and I eat any green vegetables I can find in the fridge that haven't gone bad yet.
