My friend is driving me nuts!!!!!

she will not listen to me at all about her diet, she is barely eating, she is doing the special k diet and it is only suppose to do it for 2 weeks and she is going to do it long term, she thinks she has to lose 10 pds or more a week.
I have tried talking to her about it but she insist this is what she is doing. do i just let her make herself sick?

  • There is nothing else you can do for her if she wont listen to her. Show her the medical pages that say only 2-4 pounds a week in weight loss are safe, but if she thinks otherwise there's nothing else you can do. If she wants to risk her health and life thats her business. Sorry.

  • Only she can save herself. How long into this is she? Because most people can't last even a few days on it.

  • You can't stop her. You can tell her what you see and what you think the dangers are, but ultimately, she will make her own choices.

  • about a week, she says she is going to do it until it stops working.

  • I know your right, it didn't hurt my feelings. I guess its just frustrating for me.
