As an overweight 61 year old I resent being told its because I'm lazy or that I'm stuffing my face even. In fact I'm out dogwalking several times a day and I have a much better diet than some of my thinner friends!
The amount people can eat without putting on weight does vary - plus metabolism drops with age.
It's OK for those TV dieters who 'simply' have to cut out the pies and chips etc. What's a person like me supposed to do when they already have a good diet?
I've recently upped my veg and fruit, reduced carbs, I'm eating smaller and more regularly, I don't eat after 5pm and I've ramped up the exercise. It had better work because I don't know what else I can do.
