Looking the Part

I am not going to get this exactly right, but it was something close to this:

Last night, after I excitedly told my sister about the calorie information on the restaurant menu, someone at the table said, "She doesn't have to worry about counting any calories herself."  To which I replied, (as one of my favorite teaching moments), "That's because I do."  In other words, I look like I don't have to watch what I eat only because I do (watch what I eat).

Weight control and weight loss are NOT easy.  Well over 90% of all people have to be mindful of energy intake and expenditure in order to prevent overweight and obesity.  In other words, there are very few people who can eat "anything they want" without paying some price for that.
