I became fat when I was about six years old. I even remember one of my friends at age eight asking me, "What happened, you used to be so skinny?"
As time went on, I would sometimes fantasize about waking up one morning and magically the fat in me was just flowing out of my body like I has sprung a leak and the only thing coming out was the fat.
This is now many years later and that is exactly what has happened. I discovered that I was fat because I ate too many carbohydrates, that all that carbohydrate was causing my insulin levels to be constantly higher than anything my biology could possibly deal with, that all that insulin was forcing the fat cells to hoard the fat, that all that hoarded fat meant that the rest of my cells were starving, that starving cells made me hungry, that being hungry made me eat more, and that eating more made this cycle continue.
Cutting the unneeded carbs has allowed my fat cells to finally give up the fat that they have been storing all these years. The fat is flowing out of them just like I had fantasized as a child. It may be taking a year instead of a night, but the effect is the same. Hallelujah and pass the steak.
