We were talking about how slim people stay slim without using the D-word (dieting). Being a former fatty, I have had to deal with this since I was a teenager who decided not to be fat. For me it was a whole school year of chicken noodle soup and non-fat milk lunches. More recently it was the ah-ha moment – I only need about 1700 calories per day to maintain my weight at my present activity level and my usually intake was more like 2000-2200. The extra 300-500 calories per day were steadily packing on several pounds per year.
