It Really Doesn't Take That Much
I weigh almost 500 pounds. People, including the medical profession, look and me and think "My God she must eat 20,000 calories a day." Well it is not true. I want to say to these ignorant individuals - just do the math. I am 56 years old. Just 500 calories a day more than i burn off equals on half pound of weight gained per week. That's 26 pounds a year and multiply that by just 10 years and you get 260 pounds. I weighed about 200 pounds at age 20, so I am obviously eating less than the aforementioned 500 daily excess calories. Thanks all. I really needed to get that off my chest.
