    That’s really common
    Essentially Americans shriek through their noses. Its not necessarily a bad thing, some are quite good at it.

    Just coincidence that the weight loss became significant at the point I reintroduced chilli? I’ll buy that.

    Ok some weirdness. I don’t feel super heavy by normal bloke standards, but a bit porky around cyclists or runners...

    Last August I got gastritis/small stomach ulcer. It caused a fair amount of discomfort.
    For some the discomfort stops you eating. For me it made me eat more because I’m greedy and that eating gave temporary respite from the pain.

    So I’m ok now meds sorted the problem, but I put on 8% of body weight. Ive had to cut out spicy food, neat spirits, ibuprofen and reduce dairy. I’ve been really struggling to shed the weight. I’ve been training more than before- just not as intensely due to winter/job/family constraints.
    And for about three months nothing really to report in weight loss. Then a slow tilt in the right direction

    Earlier this week I had a dinner that was spicer than it was supposed to be considering the no chilli ban. I didn’t suffer any gastric problems. Two days later, I accidentally over-spiced a curry. I ate that and again for packed lunch.
    Suddenly a significant lurch in weight loss

    In the space of 7 days I’m 80% of the way to my usual weight.

    OK from experience, my weight can lurch up or down. I’m guessing hydration & glycogen stores can move the needle on a day to day basis, but has the chilli done some kind of metabolic magic?

    Yeah I guess so because it was a regional main office. It’s where the post goes

    I was based in Bristol (my nearest office that I visited once a month) lived somewhere else and worked all over the country.

    Now I’m based in Oxford and generally work from there but live 50 miles away and work in various other locations.

    It’s a thing,it’s not the dark ages where we all work in a factory at the end of our street like a caveman
