Todd: OK, Devon, I've been putting on a few pounds and you're quite a lean fit guy.
Devon: Well, thank you.
Todd: What do you recommend? What can I do to lose weight?
Devon: Well, I exercise a lot. I go running at least three times a week. But more than that I enjoy playing sports and so different sports use different muscles and all of it helps to lose that weight that you might have gained.
Todd: Yeah, well, actually, one of the problems is that I actually exercise a
Devon: Do ya?
Todd: Yeah, so maybe it's my diet.
Devon: It could be and so in that case you might want to eat something perhaps more nutritious or maybe even less of what you do eat. Maybe, I eat three meals a day and I try not to snack in between. No potato chips. No popcorn. No candy bars.
Todd: That's pretty tough!
Devon: It is tough but......Well, I must admit that I cheat every once in awhile but... Ok, I'll give it a try....but actually, you see my problem is that I like junk food. So I have to choose: either I eat less or I eat a better diet.
Todd: What do you think is more important?
Devon: I think that if you are exercizing then you should just eat what you want and eat less.
Todd: Eat less. OK. This is going to be tough!
Devon: Well, I have no dought that you will do the best that you can.
Todd: Alright! Thanks a lot Devon.
