    Hasn’t been a problem. Either lucky, good metabolism, whatever. Weighed 155 as 13 year old high school freshman and now 5 decades plus haven’t varied by more than 5 pounds, usually adding the 5 in the winter (lighter exercise, heartier meals) and dropping by 5 in the summer. Eat three meals daily, no snacking, rare non-fruit dessert. Exercise daily for an hour or more.
