no one seems to care about caloric deficits even thouhg i have tried to explain it in many different ways...

for me, when i discovered caloric deficit , it blew my mind.
lost 40lbs in the next few months.

How would you approach someone that's already asked? You've already been approached at that point.

i guess many of you have been approached by friends or family with the same old question

"how do i lose this fat"
"i want to lose 10 pounds fast"
"i really need to go on a diet"

with all acquired knowledge on caloric deficits, macronutrient targets, etc..
whats the first thing you could say to lead people into the right direction and not lose their attention.

:D

I just reply the same as I would here. They usually don't believe me or care enough to try to listen to what I have to say because it's not what they wanted to hear.

Putting a banana in your pocket is more fun. Cause then when they ask if its a banana in your pocket you say, "Why yes...yes it is.." and pull out said banana.

For most of my co-workers, I tell them lap bands their only hope.

I say "just burn more than you eat"

and I get responses like "I'll do hot yoga, you sweat out all of your fat"
(^some ridiculous scheme where people do yoga in 40 degrees celsius or something)

or "Well I'll just eat celery cause you burn calories eating that" ...

Gets old fast, to the point where you just say; igotdaspeedoflightmetabolismcum@meieatwhatiwant.
then I do this;

If you weren't always on spread, I wouldn't feel so bad about lawling at my desk all day.

People who ask these questions are most often hoping for a magic bullet. There's no point talking to them until they are dead serious and committed.
