I’ve seen it with my own eyes!
I hear this all the time. All about this “one friend” who can mysteriously eat whatever they want and not gain a pound. They’ve been known to destroy entire pizzas, donuts by the dozen, and rumor has it they were once escorted out of an all-you-can-eat buffet. So what gives?
Here’s what’s most likely going on…
This person is simply not eating throughout the day. Your body cannot consume tons of extra calories without weight gain. That’s not a thing. When you see this person they’re probably so hungry that they’re going nuts on whatever they can get.
You have three possible states. You can be eating at a caloric surplus which causes weight gain. You could be eating at a caloric deficit which causes weight loss. Or, you could be eating the right amount of calories to support your current weight. If it takes someone 2500 calories per day to maintain whether they choose to eat that in one sitting or 5 doesn’t matter much. Don’t do that though. It’s much healthier to eat some meals through your day and not binge.
