We all know that person, the person who can eat anything and their weight does not budge. Alternatively, we also hear people say, “if I just smell a donut I gain weight”.

People ask me all the time, “so what do you actually do?” and I have yet to come up with an answer that does not end up with me word vomiting all over them.
