Just say point blank: "Stop trying to sell me things". If he/she doesn't take the hint, just walk away.

I had a friend (now ex friend) who used to always try to work her Multi-level marketing BS into any given conversation. After telling her in every way possible that I wasn't interested and would never be interested, I finally had to just cut her off completely.

I would tell them "No Thanks - I am in this for enjoyment, and I don't subscribe to supplements!" .... and leave it at that. If they try to continue, just tell them "I'm not interested and please leave me alone!"

I completely agree with the suggestions made by the others. I was so surprised to hear that people are doing that. Maybe if they hear "No thank you, not interested" while having to keep up they will get the message!

I agree about checking with your city officials to see if this is legal and to report
the problem.

All good manners require is a polite "No Thank you".

I would not make eye contact and say No thank you and keep moving.

If I found it really disrupting, I'd call the city office to see if it's even legal and let them know about the problem. To sell in my area in public space you need a permit.

I walk a bike/walking trail everyday, as with many people wanting either to lose weight. keep in shape, enjoy the nice weather or no matter their reason to walk/bike. Recently though, a handful of work from home distributers for weight loss products try to "catch up" with some of us and try to peddle their weight loss product, give handouts or samples. I find this rude. I prefer Not to take supplements, pill, shakes no matter the brand. Of course a diet plan and exercise is always included with these supplements . I don't mind chatting with someone while walking , I met many new friends and walking companions! But what do I tell a diet supplement pusher thats only purpose on the trail is to sell their product?

No such thing as "bad foods"- just bad choices.
