I have used many of these responses when someone offers me food. I have no allergies, but I have used the allergy excuse, even though people knows I am not allergic, they laugh and don't push anymore. Of course joking and sarcasm is what I do. So, it usually works.
At big gatherings with a lt of food, I have been told try someone's dish (usually dessert), I tell them I will after my stomach settles. Sometimes, it's gone before I get to try it. Then I have an honest reason not to eat it when they come back and ask if I tried it.
