Father's day is tomorrow…what food is on the docket?
July 4th is coming…what will be at your back yard bar-b-que?
Birthdays, hanging out with friends or just cooking meals for the family. Sticking to the way we eat can sometimes be a battle. People don't mean to be rude or insensitive (I have to believe that), but there are times when we just want to cave under the pressure because it's easier than the conflict or the feeling of exclusion.

My favorite point is #2: Be Excited About The Way You Eat
Don’t apologize or make excuses about your diet. Be excited. Excitement is contagious. When people sense your enthusiasm—about your improved health and/or your discoveries of new foods and recipes that work for you—they will likely be more accepting.
What is your favorite point or do you have another way that you stick to your guns in those tempting or otherwise hard situations?
