    Does anyone else find it hard politely saying no to non s/w friends who are constantly asking you to go for meals or saying they'll cook for you? I have friends who offer to cook but even though they think they are doing healthy options I know they aren't! But I feel like they think I'm being an idiot for always saying 'I can't because of my diet'. Does anyone else get the same thing off their friends?

    I think the most difficult is others cooking for you as they so often use fat and sauces etc and they think its healthy!
    At least at a restaurant you can usually choose from the menu a more healthy choice!
    I think we just have to try and stand up for our cause when we can and then allow the syns if we can't say no as feel too uncomfortable etc

    if I am in that position where I have to say yes, I will explain that since I have been dieting my appetitie is much less than it used to be. Have some free food before you go out and then ask for a small portion. if they give you a big plateful that is their problem if you end up leaving some. I never tell people I can't go out because I am dieting because otherwise you get the pressure of "one day won't hurt" scenario. With people I don't know very well I usaully say thank you for the offer but I don't enjoy eating out. Think of something that suits you. xx
