I have a friend - an athlete - who thinks nothing of what he eats. As far as he's concerned, he will get to burn it all up because he works out very often. I see him do this every day and then I understand that the work out speeds up his metabolism to the point where he hardly needs anything else to keep him in good physical shape. Now I try to do the same and I get the same results - I look great and feel great. Perhaps you should try the same thing too.
