Turkey, are you under the impression that one can eat unlimited quantities of "healthy food " and remain thin? Your comment is completely illogical.

"Wow, he must be a very thin man then." ----- No, not really actually. Not sure what that has to do with anything. He prefers fish to meat and he happens to like veggies and fruit. We eat a lot of olive oil, so we are not short on calories.

So he is not thin but eats the same amount of food you do?

Where did you get the idea that Rolls and her husband eat the same portions?

Your family doesn't eat the same healthy meals/diet that you do?

"So he is not thin but eats the same amount of food you do?" ------ We do not "diet." What we eat is not planned to make us lose weight. It maintains our weight. His weight has always been greater than mine. He also eats a different breakfast than I do and he eats a lot more fruit. I am not really sure what you are trying to find out here. If this doesn't cover it, I suggest just asking directly.

I swore you had said before that your dh was a big man. I can't see how he could possibly be that big if he eats as healthy and small meals as you state you do.

Turkey, yes, he is a large person. I said nothing about portions. I said nothing about exercise. I told you that he eats more than I do for breakfast and between meals. He has not gained any weight as long as I have cooked for him (25 years). I am sorry if you do not understand how that can be, but I can't really think of any additional info to add that would help you.

Great, thanks. That's what I thought as I can't see a big man only eating the little portions and type of food you speak of that you eat.

I got that impression too.  I'm making a tofu spinach lasagna as we speak!  But we have a lot of treats left over from Thanksgiving and I'll be the first to admit that.  (Actually kind of glad for school/work today as some of the treats have somehow accidentally gotten thrown in the trash. Wink)
