“Thin people eat whatever they want and never get fat, I eat whatever I want and weigh 400lbs! It must be genetics!”
To a thin person, eating “whatever they want” is maybe a handful of chips a day. “Whatever I want” for fast food is generally one combo meal (Entree, fries, soda) and nothing else. After dinner “whatever they want” is MAYBE a scoop of ice cream for dessert. 9 times out of 10 dessert isn’t even an option because dinner was too filling.
To a fat person, eating whatever you want is literally whatever you want. Whole bag of chips in a day? No problem. Three or four burgers from McDonalds for lunch? You betcha. Dessert every night regardless of how filling dinner was? Definitely.
“Eating whatever you want” means completely different things to different people. When a thin person says they eat whatever they want and never seem to gain weight, it’s because they still manage to eat in moderation.
Start counting calories and you’ll realize why you’re fat.
