Why can she eat whatever she wants and stay so thin?...

It must be her metabolism, right? I go on juice fasts, starve myself, count calories, weigh myself every day… but I only seem to get heavier and heavier. Yet she eats pizza, pasta, whatever she wants – when we go out for dinner and never puts on any weight - it must be genetic right? WRONG. Whilst people’s metabolisms will vary slightly – numerous studies have shown that, the heavier you are, the higher your metabolism will be. Meaning that the heavier you are – the more you have to (and can) eat to maintain your weight. So, the reason your best friend seems to be able to eat whatever she wants and you seem to put on weight just by thinking about cake, has nothing to do with your metabo

I will start my diet tomorrow/on Monday/once I’ve moved house/once my birthday has passed/once things are calmer at work…which basically means – I will NEVER START MY DIET – because when tomorrow comes around, I will just tell myself again that I will start my diet TOMORROW …and in meantime, I will stuff my face full of “just a few last” cakes/biscuits/pizzas/every naughty food I can find, because from tomorrow I won’t be allowed them anymore. You can see how this pattern of thinking can end up leading to a lot of weight gain.
