How to tell someone they’d look GREAT if they lost a lot of weight

Two mice; the mouse on the left has more fat s...I’ve actually been spinning around on this question for quite awhile, ever since it was first proposed.  Let’s say you have this great friend, especially if it’s a person of the opposite sex, and this lady would be drop dead gorgeous if they lost 100 pounds.  Can you tell them that?

Nope 🙂

It’s telling them they’re the best looking morbidly obese person you know.  It’s not going to work.

What you CAN do, though, is the first time they tell you they’ve started watching what they eat, you can say, hey, that’s great, you will look and feel great.  Which is true, and positive, and right, and pure, and will thus keep you from looking like a jerk.
