I am tired of being asked if I am on a diet! I am not on a diet nor have I ever been on one.
Why would someone who is as skinny as me go on a diet? If I was on one, I must be either anorexic or bulimic which I am not.
I am thin because I have a high metabolic rate. I have always been a skinny girl, even as a child. I am neither ill nor on a diet, I just happen to be rather thin.
And newsflash, I am not the only one of my kind out there. Believe it or not, some of those ultra skinny people walking around probably have a very good appetite and eat all their meals. I know a few myself.
Just as there are people who eat and remain scrawny, there are those who eat sparingly and are still overweight. So not all large people are gorging themselves out, and not all the skinny ones are eating like birds. Sometimes people just can't help the way they look.
I was brought up to eat healthy and at the same time not to deny myself the good stuff. As much as I love my oats and green tea, I am a sucker for desserts and calorie rich north indian cuisine.
As my body shows no sign of piling on the kilos despite my current sedentary lifestyle, I am bracing myself for more of: "Why so thin? are you on a diet?" Sigh....
