When diet "advice" doesn't help

What's the worst thing anyone ever said to you when you were trying to lose weight? That's the question we put to Health's Facebook audience, and boy, did we get an earful!

Research backs those responses up.

Here, the worst things someone can say to you on your weight loss journey—and what your best response should be to stay on course.
