Umm, I'm a guilty person when it comes to soy...

I bring my own food if it means a host would need to cook something special. Normally, my friends are pretty basic people and we eat chicken and hamburgers. I just skip mayonnaise (mostly made with soybean oil), don't eat edamame, and find other things that are ok. My friends know that I prefer to not eat at Japanese restaurants. I do email restaurants ahead of time to ask what is safe. It's too awkward to hold up a server and ask him/her to please ask the chef if soy is in this sauce!
Others in my family can't handle peanuts, tomatoes, or peppers. We tell each other if they should skip the appetizer or whatever. Usually, there is so much food at our get-togethers that the "allergee" will not go hungry.
I can handle trace amounts. My doctor said, "You have a food sensitivity, not an allergy. It won't kill you but will make you wish you were dead." Not pleasant!
