Maybe remind them, tacfully, how much they dsliked it when you, as the parent, used to tell them how to run their lives, how to dress and what to eat. You can say you're grateful for their advice WHEN YOU ASK FOR IT, but that unsolicited suggestions are not helpful. Delighted to hear you;'re not perfect --- perfect people are boring a nd often phoney. Maybe they're just concerned for your well-being and clumsy in how they try to help ? And you can tell them, as you say here, that often what they suggest is both sensible and exactly what you intended to do, but you feel pressured and immature if they feel they have to tell you things you already know.
