If you have been keeping your friend up to date with the changes in your diet, she may have avoided asking you to dinner for a while. The first challenge here may be that your friend is feeling a little miffed that you have changed. Change is not only hard when it affects us personally, it can also be hard for your friends to accept. They may even be feeling a bit jealous that you are managing to make a healthy choice when they have not. I encountered quite a bit of resistance from some of my friends, others were interested and wanted to know more.

If the host is not a close friend, be sure to let them know in advance what you are and are not happy to eat. Be flexible, let them know that you do not expect them to cook to meet just your requirements, that you are happy to skip the dishes that do not suit you, but that you would like them to let you know which dishes are OK for you and which are not. Think back to when you were first changing your diet and how difficult it seemed to be to know what to eat. If your host is a meat eater, they may have no idea how to put together a vegetarian meal.
