    You eat breakfast in the morning? don't you eat enough at dinner?
    I didn't like the rules you gave me, so I made some of my own.

    I usually just shrug and say, "I like this stuff...."

    Well, it depends on what type of remark it is and the tone and intent behind it. Most of the comments I got were just curiosity, as I'm a fan of Indian and Thai food and end up cooking "unusual" stuff like curries. There wasn't any judgment, just a little bafflement from the fast-food munching hordes (and even when it was something like a BAS, I'd get questions because they found the answers interesting, in a "oh, what's Sudenveri got today?" sort of way). It can get a little old eventually, but there's no malice, so you should just take it in stride.

    If, on the other hand, people are being rude about it - "Why would you eat that?!" - well, then you might want to re-evaluate spending time with them. That's not an issue of food, that's just manners.

    Depends on what's ok to say at your workplace.

    If it were my coworkers, the response would be "I don't give you s**t for what you eat, so go f**k yourself." It would be, naturally, partly in jest, but it would get the point across.

    Couldn't have said it better myself. Fortunately, I only have one co-worker who is cool with what I eat, and his wife is somewhat paleo/primal. She packs his lunches:-) And FWIW, I rarely eat lunch...

    You owe them as much explanation about your food as they do about their food.

    I usually tell people this is how I look this damn good.
