i seem to know a few people who complain about gaining weight, yet they still compete with me for cakes (specifically one of my family member and this co-worker).

don't get me wrong, i love sharing things, but cakes are one of the things I don't like sharing.

We've just been programmed that way. If only the future generations would work harder to keep their children from these manufactured foods we've come to enjoy. We've been programmed to enjoy these foods that are not good for us at all. I myself am one such victim. I see myself becoming fat, and there's only so much my willpower will allow me to give up at any one time. I'd be hard pressed to completely give up my guilty pleasures.

Nearly everybody I know who complains about gaining weight, eats poorly... whether it's straight up simple sugars from cakes, candies, etc., or just cheap crappy simple carbs from highly process bread, white rice, or heavily processed foods (frozen meals, canned and bagged shit, etc.).

Now, I do have a few friends, one in particular, who can't seem to lose weight even when they're disciplined. And I know them well enough to know they aren't cheating on their diet. They just can't seem to lose weight.

For me, I've hit an age where E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G I eat adds weight. Which is why I try to eat lean, nutrient rich foods vs. filler. I also do not snack. Ever. Just meals (2-3 per day). Along with a daily 16-hour fast, that all that helps merely to "control" my weight. If I didn't do any of that, I'd be at least 40-45 pounds heavier.

But I'd still have awesome hair.

That's so true, manufactured foods and fast food I think are the biggest culprits...

It doesn't help that they're so much cheaper than healthy food lol.

I'm a light eater, I don't really eat much food. But I've always been a heavy snacker... so it balances out, at least for now

My aunt is like this. She would always complain about her weight and how my uncle had gained a lot of weight. I went over to their house and found enough sweets that I thought I was hanging out with some keebler elves.

My girlfriend complains about gaining weight every time I invite her over.

"Oh my god you're going to make me fat!"

I use the most reassuring line I can think of: Don't worry! I made eight layer baklava for desert.

Excluding people who have health problems that make them gain weight and etc.,

Young people who complain all the time about gaining weight while eating bad food when they have more than enough money to buy better food and are too lazy and fat to get up and exercise: Annoying.

It's really common for people to be like that. Some people just really like to eat and gaining weight is an unfortunate side effect.

Lots of people are really uneducated about the subject too. They see the "now less fat!!" on the product and that fuels their purchasing, not the actual caloric count or anything.

I got a close friend of mine who wants to lose weight, but she still eats sweets and a good amount of food and that's when she complains
about how fat she gotten, or how fat her thigh look or the fact that she won't be able to cosplay for a anime con coming. . _.

I can't blame them, who can stay away from sugary foods,I'll probably be that person when my metabolism starts to slow down.

No - but I know some people who could stand to at least acknowledge their eating habits.

I've known a few, but this one girl particularly annoyed me when saying she didn't understand why she wasn't losing weight, while sitting next to her, watching her cover her big portion of salad with a huge layer of dressing...

One thing I often hear from people around my age is how they can't afford healthy food. I don't know about the rest of the world but where I live that statement is pretty outragous. It doesn't cost a fortune to buy the healthy food, I'll even wager the unhealthy food, especially the fast food and candy of all sorts, are way more expensive to keep buying than vegetables and the most common kinds of meat.
