A: "Hi Barbara. Have you lost weight?"
B: "Hi Julie. Yeah. I've been on a diet for a couple of months now."
A: "Wow. You look great."
B: "Thanks for noticing."
A: "What type of diet were you on?"
B: "I joined a health club and my trainer gave me tips on eating. With a combination of eating better and exercising, I managed to lose 15 pounds in 2 months."
A: "That's amazing. What tips did your trainer give you?"
B: "Mostly on how to exercise, but the best advice I got was changing my eating habits. Instead of eating 3 times a day, she told me to eat 5 times a day."
A: "That doesn't make sense. If you eat more, than how do you lose weight?"
B: "Actually, I'm eating the same amount. I eat 5 smaller meals a day. Basically, it naturally speeds up the metabolism and helps to burn fat at a faster rate."
A: "That makes sense. I'm going to try that."
B: "You don't need to lose weight."
A: "I have a little gut I have been trying to get rid of."
B: "Ah... but remember to incorporate a little exercise into your diet."
A: "Thanks for the advice."
B: "No problem."
