The Diet Shamer: How to Defend The next time your friend smirks at your salad order, try your hardest not to punch her in her naturally skinny throat. Instead, nutritionist Paula Simpson, RNCP, and Alexis Conason, a licensed psychologist specializing in body image, suggest switching out the word "diet," which most people associate negatively, for "mindful eating." Which is all well and good ... if Gwyneth Paltrow is your BFF. The Diet Shamer will never let you live that one down. Try this: Instead of meeting up with her for meals, make her your go-to friend for another activity, like manicures, movies or even hiking -- you'll be the one smirking when her sodas and Snickers can't get her through a few miles on the trail.
