    Offer her a generous serving of carbs, by way of a knuckle sandwich.

    Tell her to stop eating your food with her eyes.
    Would I be putting a grain-feed cow on a fad diet if I took it out of the feedlot and put it on pasture eating the grass nature intended?

    Have a serious talk. Tell her that her lectures, while well-meaning, are not appreciated. You're an adult and you can choose to eat how you want.

    You could ask her how her WOE is working out for her so far.

    Or, tell her you'd prefer NOT to eat the things (grains) that fatten up livestock before slaughter.

    For being "good friends," shouldn't you be talking about deeper stuff like philosophy or religion or politics or the weather or playing Half-Life, or something?

    You could just say, "Oh, we talked about this yesterday, let's talk about something else today. So what do you think about Kim Kardashian naming her baby North West?"

    5'0" female, 43 years old. Started Primal October 31, 2011, at a skinny fat 111.5 lbs. Low weight: 99.5 lb on a fast. Current weight: skinny-fat 106.5 lbs because of sugar cheating.

    MY PRIMAL: I (try to) follow by-the-book primal as advocated by Mark Sisson, except for whey powder and a bit of cream. I aim for 80-90 g carb/day and advocate a two-month strict adjustment for newbies. But everybody is different and other need to tweak Primal to their own needs.

    Time to dust off the latest favorite quote (from myself), slightly modified:

    "The day I start caring about what someone with a nutrition background thinks of how I eat is the day they push my body out to sea on a flaming Viking ship."

    She's being really rude by keeping up this behavior. We are not under any obligation to put up with rudeness like that indefinitely.

    "I don't take diet advice from fatties, fatty."

    EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.
    The above should be viewed as complete and utter nonsense.

    Look at her with a quizzical expression and say, "I'm sorry. I think you must be mistaking me for someone else. Someone who cares about your opinions about my food."

    "My dietician tells me not to eat tortillas (bread, buns, wheat, whatever). So far, I've lost X pounds. I'm loving it! Would you like to read some of his teachings?" Hand her a copy of The Primal Blueprint, if she says yes, which she won't.
