Infection... ground zero

A while back one mentioned that His cholesterol levels had dropped on this diet. This was of particular interest to our vanillas as one of them has the highest levels of cholesterol that the specialist has ever seen... it wasn't just double digits... it was more... take one's own rather high figure and slap a zero on the end of it. Anyway the upshot of this was after starting off with meds combined with a traditional low fat, no red meat diet they decided to switch.

They decided to switch for a lot of reasons; in part because he was actually putting on weight... it had got to the stage where he was wheezing while sitting... and because... well he kept cheating. The minute her back was turned there he was stuffing his face with things not on the approved list. There was one spectacular case, when they were away, that involved her finding him sampling an entire counters worth of baklava. It seems they make a huge range of it... and there he was happily browsing through it all.

Anyway they switched about two weeks ago and we didn't expect them to stay on it. Actually we figured she would be the first to drop off because she doesn't eat. Honestly she has been starving herself since childhood from what one can work out. And she was struggling to eat six times a day, let alone eat protein rather than the fruit and vegetables that make up her normal fare. Well the long and the short of this is that they sent us a little message to say that he lost 2 kg and she lost 2.6 kg this week and they are thrilled.

Now to give you an idea of the difference in the approach between men and women...
She and one small slave have the same body shape. The trouble with being an hourglass figure is that you can drop ten kilos and no one will notice... hey the upside is you can put it on and the only thing that can tell is your clothes... and they can't talk. So we made a deal...
When we see each other we will air kiss and say oh sweetie you are looking so thin

He on the other hand has dieters envy...
I'm doing everything right and exercising... they aren't exercising... and I'm only losing a kilo a week. Grumble, grumble, whine, whine...
Face it he has a faster metabolism... for the size of the meals he was eating, combined with his sedentary lifestyle, he should have been the size of a house. And she is very overweight... and has had food issues since childhood... be happy for them.
Oh I am... it's just unfair

Honestly He is so damn competitive about the strangest of things sometimes... and you can be damned sure this will just spark a new level of determination...
He will become the diet Nazi L

About, oh, 30 years ago my dad went on an experimental diet. The researchers wanted to raise his cholesterol, blood pressure, etc. All that was measured. They planned to do it by feeding him nothing but fat and protein for some period of time. I forget, it may have been 2 weeks or six weeks, but anyway, he ate eggs (6 eggs a day) at every meal, and meat, and at the end of it he had lost weight (he was already really thin) and his cholesterol and blood pressure were lower (it had been normal). At that time they declared his metabolism a freak, but it seems like he was more typical than science once thought.

Yeah the more time one spends on this the more one is convinced that what we know about the human body would fit on a pin head :(

Seems like it ends up that everyones body is just so different from anothers. My GF and I would trying going on the same diet and she would drop the weight and I wouldnt, or vice versa. Hopefully the diet Nazi wont become to unbearable, lol.
