Why the fuck do I keep trying to help my friends/family with their fitness?

    My buddy is talking about how he want to start an intense weight training program

    me: so you know you're going to need to up your protein intake huh? whey powder is the easiest way to do it.
    him: nah I'm not going for that, I just want to burn fat
    me: Umm ok but you're going to be tearing your muscles, they need protein to repair themselves.
    him: Yeah but I don't wanna get huge.
    me: Even people who just run benefit from high protein diets you know. it encourages your body to burn fat and preserve muscle.
    him: yeah but that's not what I'm going for.

    UGH. What the fuck?! Do you want to just waste away to nothing then?

    The only way I will agree to help someone in the future is if they forget all their own stupid notions about fitness and do exactly what I say.

    i guess the lesson is that you shouldn't try to learn someone unless they're willing to learn :dunno:

    That's why being a personal trainer is more difficult than being a strength & conditioning coach.

    That's the thing, he asked me for advice. Everyone asks for advice, then argues against what you say with their own stupid ideas they heard somewhere. I'm not saying I'm a fitness god...but it's my hobby. That's the reason you came to me in the first place. So shut the fuck up and listen!
