The other night I helped a friend pack her house. Along with some dinner for her family I bought 2 pints of Ben and Jerry's. One for her and one for me. For a munchies I brought over some Little Caesar’s Crazy bread, 2 bags. So I ate most of the bag on the way. When I arrived I offered her some. She ate one piece and put he rest away. That should have clued me in right there.
Later on after a packing frenzy we sat to chat and enjoy our ice cream. She had Cherry Garcia and I had Chubby Hubby.
Her – small bites. Slowly eating, enjoying each bite, very slowly eating. She then decided she was done. I swear it looked like she ate a 1/4 of the fricking pint.
Me – digging in, non stop, big bits, quick, ate nearly the entire pint in the same time she ate her 1/4.
I have only known her for a few years so this is only an assumption on my part. My friend is maybe 10 to 15 of slight over weight, nice figure, mommy tummy a bit (3 kids). My guess is she has never been obese, never had food issues, never binged, never looked at the scale and thought holy sh*t I still have nearly 50 pounds to lose (post baby does not count). Again total assumptions.
I yearn to eat like that with red light items. She claimed to be in love with the ice cream and claimed to have a sweet tooth. The tooth must be microscopic.
Do you have any observations of how fitter, possibly never been obese people eat?
