Why do people post questions on here asking how they can lose weight, but then say they don't want to hear about eating healthier, and they don't have time for exercise? Do people think there is some magic pill out there that will solve all of their problems? All of those fad diets tear your body up and slow down your metabolism, so then, as soon as you go off of the diet, you gain back all of the weight and more. A balanced diet with small portions, and exercise are THE way to lose weight, and it HAS to be a lifestyle change if you want it to be permanent. It takes WORK.
We've beam this society that expects everything to happen NOW and for it to be handed to us, so when we have to work for something, like this, people aren't willing to out forth the effort. They get discouraged when they're not losing 10 lbs a week, or they let one "bad" meal or choice derail their efforts.
Sorry, had to rant. This is such a common issue.

Yay, OP!!! I completely agree and those questions drive me nuts too! I finally just stopped answering most of them, as when someone is looking for an easy fix, they generally don't want to hear that it's hard work.
