How is it that some women can stuff themselves with cakes and doughnuts and not get fat or even put on a pound?, While you watch them have you ever questioned yourself why?

The answer Is that the basal metabolic rate which is the speed at which a person burns calories a day doing different activities differ from people to people. Some have a rather high basal metabolic rate (BMR) and some have a slower one. You might be the one that falls in the slow basal metabolic rate group. Going headfirst into a diet for those with a slow (BMR) can actually have negative effects, your body tries to hold onto as much calorie as possible which slows down your already slow basal metabolic rate even slower.
