Forget about calories – everything makes thin people thinner and fat people fatter.~Mignon McLaughlin, The Second Neurotics Notebook

The number of calories in food isn’t the only factor dictating if a food will be fattening or not for you. For different folk different effects. If French fires make you gain weight super fast, for someone else the French fires might have no fattening effect. Each of us present an unique set of factors that decide if the food we eat gets stored or not.

We all envy the skinny, eat all they want, people. Being at the same table with such a person can be quite frustrating. She can eat all she wants, doesn’t matter what, and she gets to keep her sexy body too. Seems unfair.

But if you take a closer look you will see that the truth isn’t that simple. Skinny people that leave the impression that they can eat whatever they like without any consequences actually don’t eat that much. Either they have a very physically active life, being professional athletes, or getting lots of exercise on a daily basis. Or they eat one big meal and then nothing for an extended period of time.

Their trick is actually quite simple. Their lifestyle is perfectly in sync to how fast their metabolism is. Having the right metabolism for your lifestyle is truly a blessing. You get to eat whatever you want, feel satisfied all the time and not gain one ounce of fat.

The number of calories in food don’t make you fat alone. Having a slow metabolism combined with eating lots of foods rich in calories is what makes you fat. The best way to put an end to the curse of fatness is to speed up your metabolism. It takes a little time and effort, but if you want you too can be one of those skinny people that can eat anything they wish without getting fat.
