We all have that one annoying friend.

You know the one I mean.

She eats whatever she wants and never gets fat.

You on the other hand, only need to look at a piece of chocolate cake and you gain two pounds.

You suspect she’s got a secret she’s not telling you.

You wish you were like her and had the freedom to eat whatever you wanted.

If only there was a way to make it happen…

If you don’t exercise, or didn’t do much exercise as a kid, there’s a good chance that you have a lower metabolism than…

You’re overweight.

You know it. Your friends know it. Your colleagues know it.

Weight has been a life-long issue for you.

You’ve tried various diets but nothing seems to work.

Once in awhile, someone clever says to you, “why don’t you just eat less?”

What a novel idea! Why hadn’t you thought of that before?

But this alone, is terrible advice, and here’s why.

But it worked for Beyonce, so why can’t it work for you?

I was in trouble.

I thought all my hard work was about to be derailed, and 2020 was going to be a write-off in more ways than one.

Thankfully, I was wrong.

My natural home-state can only be described as sloth-like.


Oh no, it happened again.

You feel disgusted with yourself as you stare down an empty tube of Pringles.

You know you shouldn’t have, but you did it anyway.

You were bored and there was nothing else to do but head into the kitchen and graze.

Your stretchy yoga pants hide your shame, but you know what’s happening.

You’re getting fat in lockdown and there’s nothing you can do about it.
