Would you serve an obese customer the same foods?
As a chef if you worry about what your customers eat you will not be able to concentrate on cooking the food.
Until you open your own place and then you can decide the menu.
It is good that you care about him.
Maybe before he hands you the ticket you tell him that you are preparing something different just for him to try.
You can't prevent someone from doing something that is self destructive unless you are prepared to gaurd them 24/7.
Good luck with your carreer. Shalom
Everything is relative. As a former bodybuilder and fitness trainer for many years, I assure you there are things you yourself eat or drink, or other lifestyle choices you make that are unhealthy. And just the fact that you work at a restaurant that serves bacon cheeseburgers means you are enabling EVERYONE - not just the owner. By my standards, bacon cheeseburgers are poison - for everyone. You don't have to be obese to have heart or arterial disease or high blood pressure or other issues related to a poor diet. But I'm not going to beat you up about what you eat or where you work, just as you shouldn't beat up the fat owner. If you don't want people dictating to you what you should or shouldn't eat, you shouldn't dictate to others. Normally I would suggest a gentle informational nudge might be in order, but if he is that obese, I'm sure his doctor has informed him of the risks he is taking...
