I eat three meals a day and have some not so healthy snacks throughout the day, but pretty much everyone around me eats loads more e.g. curry at 9:30pm and they've already had dinner. What's more they don't seem to be putting much weight on

Most students can't budget themselves properly to eat loads. I didn't think I was eating that healthily here, but I lost nearly a stone in 6 weeks ! I was/am still eating biscuits and some pizzas, but I think its because my dads cooking is sooo unhealthy that an average diet is enough to make a difference. We hardly ever had takeaways at home, but he would always put loads of butter/sugar/cheese/cream/salt in his cooking which would be fried or roasted half the time. Mum reckons she put on a couple of stone after moving in with him ! I was lucky, when my dad visited, he brought me £100 of food, but all the fresh stuff soon got eaten, so I have had to buy my own fruit/veg/meat/dairy still. Plus due to limited fridge/freezer space he couldn't buy me that much of it in the first place.

Because they also perform physical activities. However, if people working in offices start eating too much, they will gain weight, as they have to sit on the chair all the day.

That makes sense. So nice of your dad!

Well, I didn't think it was enough movement to warrant it that's all.

I showed him my virtually empty cupboard, fridge shelf and freezer and he took me shopping. I think he was expecting to get a few things, but yeah he spent £100. Luckily it was my dad that visited and not my mum. I'd made a list but as we were going round he was asking if I wanted this and that aswell. And anything that I did want he pilled into the trolley. Whereas my mum would ask if I really needed it and then only get a small/single pack. Looking at how much stuff I've still had to buy, I might exploit him even more next time ! The even more annoying thing about it, is the stuff that lasts that I've still got is the cheap stuff such as pasta and rice, its the meat to go with it that I need to buy myself.
