guys vs. girls

June 24, 2011

This conversation took place between me and Keith Wednesday at lunch time:

Keith: I am starving! I forgot to eat breakfast this morning.

Me: Why? I packed you a breakfast.

Keith: I was just too busy. I only ate a little bit of what you packed.

Me: What did you eat?

Keith: The banana, the bagel…with a big glob of peanut butter…at least 2 tablespoons, 2 hardboiled eggs, and few bites of steel cut oats.

Me: silence

Keith: See? I didn’t eat hardly anything.

Me: So your “non-breakfast” probably clocked in around 700 calories.

Keith: See? No wonder I am so hungry.

Me: I don’t have words, Keith.

Keith: (laughing) Oh and then I forgot I made a protein shake when I got home too.

Me: Are you sure you don’t have a tapeworm?

Keith: I gotta get to at least 3000 calories a day just to maintain! I need to gain weight!

Me: I hate you.

Keith: laughs

Sometimes life is so unfair. I will gladly give Keith some ass fat if he wants it. Gladly! I wonder who I need to speak with to make that happen?

    Ahahahah – this post was amazing. This is exactly like the conversations between me and my boyfriend. It’s SO frustrating! My mom always says “just wait until their 40s when their metabolism catches up with them!”

      Keith is 41!!!! (He is 11 years older me) and I am still waiting! haha!

    I hate men. Dar was complaining that he lost 8 lbs. I wanted to punch him in the face. Haha

    Hahahaha I think the best part of all this is his “non breakfast”. It seems more like my breakfast, plus a snack, and then another snack. But yah, he hardly ate anything. That’s hilarious. 🙂

    This sounds so familiar… haha…. I have this conversation at least once a week with my boyfriend. NOT FAIR, boys, NOT fair.

    It would be SO fun if women could have that ravenous metabolism that men have! I envy it!!

    Brent looks at a healthy food and loses weight. Ha!

    Well of course – he’s a hard working man!

    In all seriousness though even very active women who are healthy consume 2500 (at least). It all depends on age, stature, gender, physical activity level…yada yada yada – but you know that!

    HAHA! I know! But seriously….than man consumes 3000+ calories a day on a regular basis and drops weight. It is unreal. I am convinced he has a tapeworm! haha! (I’m kidding…sort of)

      Oh my God – I would want to kill him! I see what you mean :)…do you find it difficult living with someone with different “needs”? My friend moved in with her boyfriend a couple of months ago and was complaining to me today that she’s gained weight from eating with him and not paying attention. Plus, they don’t go out as often now since they’ve been together for a while and just stay in with movies and nachos 🙂

    LOL, gotta love that! I would love a man’s metabolism thank you very much 🙂

  10. June 24, 2011 7:23 pm

    HAHAH, I have this same conversation with my boyfriend (only sometimes in my head) almost every day! He’s soooooo thin and is a total garbage can. Its amazing, isn’t it?!!!?!!

  11. June 24, 2011 9:28 pm

    I’ll more than gladly donate to his weight gaining efforts!

  12. June 25, 2011 6:24 am

    LOL! thats so James too. He was stunned he went 2 hours without food the other day and felt deprived. haha.

      James and Keith are definitely one in the same!! Especially when it comes to Healthy Bites!!! haha!

  13. June 25, 2011 9:47 am

    hahaha, our men are two of the same. Last night my fiance said “All I had for lunch was a potpie.” …aka 800 calories.

  14. June 25, 2011 4:15 pm

    Most women actually underestimate their caloric needs. Still, I wouldn’t mind having a man’s metabolism.

    • June 26, 2011 9:10 am

      I agree but there is still no way I would need 4000 calories a day to maintain!! I wish!

  15. June 28, 2011 12:19 am

    Haha, this is hilarious. Meeker became a vegetarian for a month and lost 9 pounds in 2 days. Whaa?
