Now that gluten sensitivity has entered CW, and stores are responding with gluten-free stuff, this situation has been cropping up more and more often.
Friend: Have some cake/cookies/pancakes!
Me: Oh no thanks.
Friend: Why not?
Me: I don't like to eat wheat.
Friend: Ohh, I'm sorry, let me get you the plate of GLUTEN-FREE cookies. Have some gluten-free cake/cookies/pancakes! Oh, just a little bit!
How do I refuse baked goods (which I don't really like), now that I no longer have the Prilosec excuse?
5'0" female, 44 years old. Started Primal October 31, 2011, at a skinny fat 111.5 lbs. Low weight: 99.5 lb on a fast. Gained back to 115(!) on SAD chocolate, potato chips, and stress. Currently keeping food tracker.
I (try to) follow by-the-book primal as advocated by Mark Sisson, except for whey powder and a bit of cream. I advocate a two-month strict adjustment for newbies. But everybody is different and should tweak Primal to their own needs.
