Some of my clients always have been and always will be lean. They are the long skinny ectomorphs that couldn’t gain a bunch of weight if they tried. I was talking to one such client thinking that if someone were to pay her $100,000 to gain 100 pounds, she would be unable to do so. Try as she may, she could not put on a bunch of fat.
I wondered, other than genetic predisposition, why this was? Why is it that some people really blow up and gain a ton of weight and some won’t. What was she doing that other people weren’t? What was the magic formula to living Spanx-free?
So I asked her and here’s what I got.
She said, “I never, ever overeat.”
Boom. She dropped the bomb just like that. Under NO circumstances, at NO time does she overeat.
She continued, “I start to get nauseous if I get too full, it’s uncomfortable, so I never do it.”
“Everyone gets stuffed and nauseous,” I retorted, “they still keep eating.”
“They do?” she stared in disbelief.
There it is. Read this blog. Then read it ten more times until it singes into your brain.
