Re: Obesity excusesIt is calories in and calories out but what many don't seem to understand is you can eat a lot of calories in calorie dense things like cake and very few in celery. So they feel they aren't eating much at all. I know I was guilty of that for a long time, little slice of cake left me feeling hungry, but try and eat the same calories in celery and you remain full for ages. Protein also is important, two eggs fill me up for ages, two slices of toast I can burn through in no time and look for something else.
Re: Obesity excusesExcellent post Julie
Re: Obesity excusesIt is not all to do with lifestyle as metabolism & build has a big influence. We all have different metabolisms. I say this because I don't think I could ever be obese no matter how many burger and chip suppers I could eat. I might get out of shape but I would really struggle to put on more than a stone. Some people only have to look at a cake and their waistline expands.
