Healthier way of life/ eating disorder recovery

Well I just added up my daily calories
and listed my food
(I have an actual food journal I write in every night)

I had a sweet tooth today
and I did my best to not binge
This is what I ate:

+Salad (w/ about 2 tbs cottage cheese instead of dressing and cheese)
+Pasta Primavera
|Fat-Free Banana Nut Muffin
-Cranberry Muffin
-Nachos w/ cheese
|Macaroni Salad (about 1/3 cup)
-Low-Fat Sugarfree Vanilla Ice Cream
About 1495
which isn't too bad
but above what I wanted.

And damn those jalapenos messed with me, haha.
What's the easiest way to get somebody to start eating more healthy?
I'm trying to get my Significant other to break his terrible eating habits:
Pizza, Fried Foods, Potato Wedges, Ice Cream, etc...

But he thinks I only worry about it because of my "weight issues"
But I really do feel people should eat more healthfully.
Do you think there is an efficient way to explain this to him?

that's not bad at all, better than me at least.

find a website. explain to him that it's not your disorder or w/e that makes you health concious, it's just what you should do. even if he doesn't gain weight from it now, if he doesnt break the habits how when he gets older and his metabolism slows he could very easily become obese and have heart problems ect

You still had a good day and definitely didn't overeat :)
Ditto everything secreteggshells said... talk to him about all of the present and future benefits of eating healthier. Eating like that becomes so deeply rooted in you that it's a nightmare to change, and it will help him so much if he can slowly start changing the way that he eats now, before he's experienced any negative effects from his diet.
