No, I think my concern is legitimate. I don't want to turn into a fatass because of the food she makes me.
I come from a culture where the women have absolute control over the kitchen. What you have to do is simply, politely and cheerfully, refuse to eat the food you find unhealthy. Very nicely and cheerfully request what you would rather eat. Eventually you will get it. If your mom protests that the food will go to waste, just be confident that you are not wasting it because you already made a nice polite request for what you wanted, gave her plenty of notice, etc.
If you are a good son in all other respects, clean up after yourself, are polite and obedient to your elders, do your share of the housework, etc., then your mom will fall into line with the food eventually.
