I think your boyfriend is reacting in this way because he feels that you are trying to boss him around. It is very difficult to change someone's eating habits if they are not convinced that they need to change. You can only lead by example. When he sees that you are achieving good results, losing weight and getting fitter, then he may well decide to follow your example. But the first step must come from him and he must want to do this.
