I was thinking about this the other day, though...why do people think it's funny to eat something like that in front of a dieter and exaggerate the "mmmm" noises while doing so, while asking "you suuuuuuuuuuuuure you don't want some???" I mean, you wouldn't do that to a diabetic, would you??? Aside from mmmm noises being rude in general, trying to tempt someone that is trying to conform to a diet is just plain cruel.
Yikes, I worked in one for 10 years so I know exactly how that is (although I'm sure it might be more difficult in Georgia!!!). I used to bring my giant packed cooler and had to repeat over and over in my head ("I can only eat what's in the cooler"). It's hard, for sure.
