 I am quite certain my lineage bears an unfortunate heritage, my ancestors were probably rough mountain people, with big butts and strong appetites. That would definitely explain why I genetically received such an endless hunger and such countless cravings every day. When I was a teenager, in order to keep a reasonable feminine figure, I would only eat 2 times a day, very tiny portions, no bread, no sweets, no meat (that's right) and perform significant cardio for, at least, 20 minutes daily. My personal weight record is 53 kg at 170cm, and I am very certain I would have never been able to weight any less than that. My point is, I know what, starving to look good, means. Nevertheless I was deeply touched by the sad, sad stories of some famous modelswho died, because they obstinately wanted to become thinner and thinner.
