    It's no good trying to force a diet upon someone. What does it mean? Thanks!

    Default Re: force a diet upon someone

    If the person is unwilling, your efforts at forcing them to go on a diet will be to no avail.

    It's no good = it won't work
    to force [something or some action] on someone = to make them do it against their will.
