Metabolic syndrome ? the regular army4
Eating up a large amount of delicious food at lunchtime with senior workers and co-workers…
This was the catalyst for me to become a real member of the regular army of metabolic syndrome.
After half a year of my entry to the firm, the jeans I had wore when I was a student did not fit anymore.
When it became the season for skiing, I did not have any problem to wear the ski suit because it was made of stretchy materials. I went skiing wearing the super stretched ski suit!!
The senior workers took me to pub after work almost everyday. I played mah-jong with them three time s a week. I played the game with a bowl full of fried rice in my hand.
Turn down the senior workers’ offer to go out after work meant ‘becoming a deadwood young’ or ‘ be transferred to a remote branch’ in the old days.
During the three years I spent at the branch, I changed nothing of my life style habits and following me, new workers became a member of the regular army of metabolic syndrome.
However some of the workers kept their body shape nice and slim despite of the same eating and lifestyle habits they have as me and other members of the army of metabolic syndrome.
I only vaguely thought ‘it is hard for them to put on weight because of their constitutional character’.
It is often said that ‘A nervous person finds it difficult to gain weight’ and ‘A fat person have a gentle character.’
‘Classification of personal character based on body shape’ was the common topic you can find in the textbooks at school.
