It’s funny, nearly everyone that finishes up says the same thing.
“Thanks for everything Andy. I will definitely recommend you to any of my friends who believe this works…..most will not break from the 6 small meals per day….when I tell them about LG they look at me as if I’m crazy.”
But really though other people’s diet habits shouldn’t concern you. Two meals, six meals, breakfast skipper or not, it really doesn’t matter as long as people are happy.
Sometimes though you see that your friend has made a full-time job of eating and training, can’t come out for dinner or a beer and you just want to shake them. You know deep-down that they aren’t happy with the time-investment/reward ratio and you care about them, right?
So what did you do? Did you try preaching to them? No. It won’t work and no one likes that.
Are you physically smaller and therefore (in their minds) obviously know less and thus get ignored? There are a lot of well-meaning people in this situation also.
I’ve thought long and hard about this. Chris Brogan in his book “Trust Agents” talks about the power of a voice when we perceive that person to be “one of us.” -Meaning that words impact us more when they come from someone we think are like us. This is why I include the stories of so many different people on that results page. – The more there are; the more the likelihood that the story of one of those clients will resonate with a friend of ours.
Probably the best way to help your friend is to just point them in the right direction and hope they will read.
The next post I’ll help you with the “bigger friend” scenario with a client story of a bodybuilder called Phil. I’ll have that up in a couple of days, followed by a few more stories to the results page, before resuming with a couple of ‘guide’ posts.
If you have a friend that’s more turned on by science than testimonials then two of my favourite places to link friends to are: “Top Ten Fasting Myths Debunked” and “Alan Aragon’s Research Review“.
Hope you’re having a good summer. -Andy.
