I am 21 and in my last year of university so I know how you feel. It’s extremely hard, honestly…especially not drinking. This is my second attempt at the diet – last year I quit two months in because of pressure from friends and family. Becoming educated and eloquent on the subject has helped a lot but the most important thing is to remain disciplined so everyone can see that their comments will not change your mind. If it is a specific food I’m turning down with an acquaintence ill usually say I’m lactose/gluten intolerant or allergic. I get a lot of flack because I’m naturally thin and it seems like I have an eating disorder. I’m two months in and I feel awesome. Keep your head up high! It’s nice to know there is someone out there with a similar experience.
