When I see people around me being overweight, I really do wonder what went wrong. I know I'm blessed with a high metabolism, but I still watch what I eat. It's a known fact that I'm a health freak.
I do have a high metabolism, but it doesn't mean I can get away with eating high fat foods and not have high cholesterol. So I stay away from fried foods most of the time and meat is more of a flavouring when I cook.
I am a medical student and I know what is good for me and what is not. My classmate knows it too. Yet, he is severely obese, diabetic and hypertensive. When we eat together, it looks as if I'm the one on a diabetic's diet instead of him. He would order fried noodles (hardly any veggie with lots of oil) while I have rice with veggies and a piece of chicken. He would order a sweet drink while I have plain water.
If anyone out there who is reading this and needs help. I can give free lifestyle advice to loose weight. But to succeed in loosing weight, it takes more than that.
