Sorry, but i don't buy that. Not unless you have a real medical problem. my entire family is fat accept for one person. Me. Why is that? Because i do not eat like any of them. I lost weight, you can too! And you can eat health food (but too much of it) and gain weight. If you like your weight, cool. But don't say you have no control. Empower yourself.
26, I obviously don't know the details about your life, but mentioning types of food does not assist in showing that you know how to handle one's own weight. Sweets, fat foods and the like don't make you gain weight and don't prevent you from losing weight. Taking in more calories than you burn is what makes you gain weight. What types of foods you eat for this is only of secondary concern and starts to matter when you're not just concerned about weight, but rather about the quality of your life. After all, healthy foods make a healthy body, not a slim body. A slim body is achieved by watching and controlling your intake and output. (Healthy food is easier to transform into energy though, which helps in supporting activities that then burn this energy.)
I'm gonna be the bad guy and say that it's true that you can't control it, but only sometimes. I gained 20 pounds when I started band camp in August and I was eating a lot less. Now that I'm not marching as much and eating more, I've lost weight (10 pounds). I had no control over that at all. (if I ate less, I would have passed out) sometimes the body is just weird.
#38 eating less can have a bad effect if you went to the extreme. Your body can go into starvation mode and store fat, or maybe it lowered your metabolism. Plus you didn't have control of how the food was made. many things can trigger weight gain. I didn't think I ate poorly or overate, but then I got an app where you write everything down and it shows the calories. I was shocked! But now I know.
I work full time at 7-4 everyday i forget to eat anything till im home and then its a sandwich, pasta, jackets or a roast dinner maybe 300-800 calories a day. I hate chocolate and crisps and chips and yet im overweight. So please dont write about How calories count.
Sorry OP, but I think it's time to lay off the beer. In all seriousness though, if your belly is round like a pregnant belly, you may want to see whats going on. Many people I've met have had bad cysts on their ovaries and on their stomachs. They say its not painful until they burst, or get too large. I highly doubt you have this problem, but if your belly is growing out and round their may be an underlining problem. I'm not a doctor, but I recommend you see one.
Maybe they have something cute in a small enough size that it will fit you
