That is it. What?, you ask. The title of this secret, that's what. Whenever you need help from friends and family members, ask for it. Most people don't want to hurt or offend others. So when your best friend insists you try a piece of her freshly made pie, you'll say yes. Don't do it. Don't sell your friend short. She wants to help you if she can. She just needs to know you really need it. Ask your friend for their help. Just say, could I ask for your help? and explain what you need.
Let your friend know that you are trying to loose weight and you are having a hard time overeating and need to skip the pie. If you remain polite and show your friend how much you appreciate them, they will help. Remember that this applies to many more situations, and guys, do the same.
