These are the moments I wish I could gently put my arm around their shoulders and tell them, "It doesn't have to be this way! Don't you get it? The supplements you buy make me think you must have read something, been told something about ways to improve your health. But, didn't you also read about how poor food choices got you there to begin with? Don't buy that hot dog. Please. Go to the supermarket over there, pick up a bunch of greens and let me help you find true health that doesn't come in a supplement bottle."
Of course, I remained silent, as I have thousands of times before. I took a deep breath and thought, it's OK. People are learning. It's happening. Baby steps. I'm here when they need me.
