Butterfly I hope you don't mind me commenting on this... but maybe they arn't trying to get you to change your diet, but asking for your opinion because they know you have been successful and therefore trust your opinion? It just sounds like something I would do if someone started telling me how much weight they lost :oops:

the people I've come across usually preface the speil with "oh you should try..."

But I do see your point. And if people are asking for my advice, I usually give it graciously
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!
