Meg: Hey, Todd. I was talking to your girlfriend and she seems really fit.

Todd: Yeah. She's very fit. It's kind of a problem actually.

Meg: Oh really? Why?

Todd: Well, she watches what she eats and she's very careful about the food she eats. So she doesn't eat meat, she doesn't eat fast food. She doesn't eat sugar. She doesn't drink coffee. So because she doesn't eat or drink all these foods, it's kind of hard if we go out to dinner or if I want to eat something because then I feel guilty.

Meg: Do you also not eat those foods?

Todd: No. Are you kidding? I mean, I always eat fast food and I love to eat sweets and stuff like that. So we both love exercise, right. So she exercises a lot. I exercise a lot. She exercises more than I do but yeah, the diet thing is kind of a hassle.

Meg: Hmm.

Todd: So what do you think I should do?

Meg: Maybe you should also try to be healthy because it sounds like a good idea.

Todd: Yeah, maybe. I'll give it a try. But the thing is, you know, she – there's one other problem. She eats five small meals a day, so never eats big meals. So we can't go to a restaurant and stuff like that. So it's just really hard to adjust. I mean, I love a big breakfast, you know. She never eats a big breakfast. She always eats these small little meals, so yeah.

Meg: Well maybe, you can cook at home together.

Todd: Maybe. Or maybe I should just get a new girlfriend.

Meg: Maybe. Good luck.
