True friends will wreck their diet for you.
 
If you have a skinny friend who comes over and declines your fresh out of the oven baked goods, kick her to the curb.
 
As Maya Angelou said, “When people show you who you are, believe them.”
 
If she’s putting the fit of her high rise jeggings before you now, you think you’ll be able to trust her a year from now? 5 years from now? Cut her off and keep it clean.
 
I may have a lot of faults, but I’ll fall on a carb-sword for my comrades without hesitation.
 
I don’t care if I’m two hours into keto and just bought an online recipe book for $17.99 – if you’re staring down the emotional eating abyss, I’ll be there. Want one of those margaritas the size of a bathtub? Just updated the Lyft app, friend. Does it involve cheesecake? Order me pumpkin. Want fries on the side? Don’t forget that ketchup, girl. What the hell, get a side of ranch too – it’s gonna be a long night working through our feelings.
 
Don’t ever underestimate the power of a good friends with good food to heal a broken heart.
