My son has really unhealthy eating habits gorging himself on fats and sugar but he is the image of health!
The doctor told us he has an abnormally high metabolism and powerful liver so food and sugar etc has no effect. He is in the 10th percentile on the BMI for his age . I tried to change his eating habits but I'm worried without all those fats he'll burn himself out ( he's very active he has whats called a "nervous energy" meaning his energy levels burn themselves without exserting anything) and go underweight.
