My FIL Is obsessed with his weight and bowels. He is constantly obsessed with his weight. He thinks he's fat. He is at a healthy weight and his doctor is happy with his gain as he was malnourished and weak before we started full time caregiving for him. He gets on a fat kick and wants low fat everything, diet this and that then will nosh down cookies. I have seen a change lately in his ability to chew and swallow his food which is contributing but this food/diet obsession has been going on long before now. he also is obsessed with his bowels. He is regular now but still wants laxatives because it's not as much poo as he wants to get out everyday. I had to hide the laxatives. I get that part of it is aging and Parkinson's but some of it is just insanity. I know I should just let it go but selfishly I don't want to deal with the negative health repercussions by having him diet all the time.
