Gaah this is so true. I deal with this all the time. People think you're crazy with your advice, and the mainstream advice is the way to go, but they are just not strong enough to follow it. It is like trying to unbrainwash someone. "No really, all those cravings for sugar are actually healthy, you'd actually be better off gaining a few pounds for a faster metabolism." The whole thing is kind of like a form of gas lighting. People believe they are the weak ones, they have no willpower, their ill health is their own personal failing, they are the reason it isn't working, not the advice, and they have to struggle harder.
