So I put on weight for no reason I can understand.
But that’s OK because I found all these great videos on Youtube by this guy Gary Taubes, who thinks we get fat because of sugar and carbohydrates which cause something called insulin resistance and that is the issue. So if we just cut those things out, we’ll lose weight easily. And he has all this science to back it up, and he’s written books, and people seem to respect him and I’m feeling really good about my chances.
So I don’t eat any sugar for the whole next day and it’s all great. This extra 10lbs will be gone in no time.
Until I find a video where he talks about women and the menopause and basically says that when our oestrogen drops, we get insulin resistance anyway, and then we gain weight.
So I’m 52 and I’m tired and it’s been a crap work day, so I just say screw it and have some wine and a handful of chocolates.
