Like "I have a meeting and Christmas pot luck tonight. There will be cookies. I will have a few cookies. Under no circumstances do I ever replace a meal with Boost. I did that when I had a problem chewing and swallowing. I find that all that stuff does is make me hungry. Parties are only hard if the party goer chooses to make it hard. I know what to eat. I also know that having one or two cookies is not going to kill me or blow my diet. I go to parties to have fun and chat with others. I don't worry about the food or people are eating things I can't have. I eat what I can have and leave a lot of the sweets alone. Instead of focusing on the food focus on the people and have a fantastic time. "
