This is so true - but people simply do not want to hear this. Maybe similar to the folks that think one golf tip will have them hitting 5 yard draws down the middle of the fairway going forward. I worked in health clubs when I was younger and it was amazing how people just wouldn't listen to the real truth. People don't want any part of the following:
You have to eat less
You have to exercise more
You have to make sacrifices
It could take a while to reach your goal
This is why all of the fad diets and stuff are out there. People have to think there is something special about it. People would always ask me about how to accomplish something, but when I told them the answer, they basically said I was kinda wrong because their cousin's friend did such and such and it really worked for them.
Eventually, almost all of the questions were about supplements, pills, drinks, etc. The bottom line is - if 9 people tell you it is going to be difficult and take a long time, but the 10th tells you it will be fast and easy - most people go with the 10th guy.
