    Tell her you want to eat more nutritious food then threaten to rip out her liver and eat it if she persists

      I have gone to the nutrient density argument twice. Piece of bread vs a sweet potato. One guy even told me that bread was better cause it's fortified. Duh, they fortify it cause it's a third world carb.

            I'm guessing the OP isn't looking for advice where she sounds like a total c**t to her friend.

            That said, jilly, if she really is a good friend, she should be able to handle you telling her your food choices are your choices, period. And it might take being serious for a minute and a half for her to get it, because with all the joking around that usually goes on as you say, she's never taken you seriously.

                I found it helps to look them in the eye and say "I'm doing what is right for me and I would really appreciate your support".

                    I usually go one of three routes -

                    1. I say "I really like eating this way, it makes me feel really good."

                    2. I say, "oh, I do like tortillas, but they don't like me. My stomach just doesn't like that processed food."

                    3. Or, if I am annoyed enough, I say "I couldn't care less about what you eat, why do you make such a big issue about what I eat?" I prefer not to be rude, but I had had enough at a recent lunch with a vegetarian riding my butt. I also pointed out to her that I had put my RA into near remission with my diet, so I wasn't likely to change it any time soon. That particular point may not work so well for you

                      I know how frustrating this is. When someone is not too intellectual they accept what you say because they respect your knowledge, when someone is very (very) intellectual they accept what you say because ultimately you're right, but regular-to-moderately-intellectual people aren't stupid enough to accept what you say blindly nor intelligent enough to understand your arguments.


                      So... keep trying or something, some ideas:

                      "So you think that you know more about health? Do you know how much I've read? Do you think that you're better than me?" *Drama*
                      "Have you ever heard of science? No matter what you believe, truth is truth and you might be wrong no matter how firmly you believe that you aren't"
                      *Lengthy explanation about the dangerous insulin reaction that happens after you eat pasta* "See? It's hard to be wrong with such a detailed explanation, now you have something to refute with science, if you can't then I'll be right. Period"

Drop my shirt back into place, shrug, and say "Eh, my body must've missed that memo."

                          "And I so badly want to be like, you make fun of me for taking my hamburger bun off, but youre going to eat a honey bun AND a bag of M&Ms!!?!?!? "

                          I don't see why you can't just say that.

                            Is your friendship that formal, so you couldn't tell her to STFU and mind her own business?
                            It always works for me.

                              My 19 y.o. daughter is having similar problems with her friends. She even told me that she would like to have a proper diagnosis so that it would shut them up (although I'm not too sure that it will shut them up). I have advised her to not talk about her food choices with her friends at all and, if they make any comments, to tell them it's her life and her choice.

                              I am going to take her to the doctor to see about celiac testing but, since she isn't eating gluten, I have read that the blood tests are useless. I did advise her to say that she is wheat intolerant, which she is since she gets stomach pain whenever she eats wheat, until we can figure this out.

                                I think I would totally do this.
