Just eat real food, you know the food that doesn't come in a can, plastic packet etc and you won't get fat.
I just buy raw ingredients and avoid ready made anything and no one in my household is overweight. My husband is a bit but he buys a energy drink, pkt of crisps and a chocolate bar very morning on the way to work and eats tons of 2 min noodles and blocks of cheese lol!
I go with the "Mother Nature doesn't make mistakes" theory. I don't eat ready-made meals or packaged foods. I am 5'6" and wear a size 10/12. I have since I was 21--before that I wore a size 5-7. I don't own a scale. If my clothes start getting tight, I back off on the butter, up my exercise, and eat more veggies, and eat my biggest meal in the morning. And, I eat real food--it tastes so much better!
