Not About Food

Turning down food at work because it's crap fast food, but everyone assumes it's because you're dieting

At work they sometimes cater really gross processed fast food. I don't eat it because I would enjoy my own cooking brought from home much much more. However, it annoys me that everyone assumes Im not eating it because I'm watching my weight and I have extraordinary willpower. But I guess it's more polite than saying "No, I don't want to eat that because it will taste like garbage." But the comments about me not eating it are never-ending, and the manager constantly asks if I want a salad or points out that there is a low-carb menu... even though Im continually saying I'm not watching my weight, I'm just a picky eater. Why don't they understand that it isn't good food and some people may not want it? anyone else experience this?
