I mean seriously I know a dude that freaks out if he gains 5lbs and goes immediately on a sticked Keto diet.
I understand why you think this would be an overreaction and I don't necessarily disagree. But I once read an article stating that this is how people get on the road to obesity. You know how everyone gains 5-10 lbs. over the holidays? It happens to many of us and it's considered "normal." What are the holidays without good food and drinking some "holiday cheer" as my brother-in-law likes to call it. For the lucky ones, going back to normal eating habits will reduce the weight. For others, it stays there. But it's "only" 5 lbs., right? But then next year on comes another 5 lbs. It's 10 years later and you're asking yourself, "How did I gain 50 lbs.?"
