    ​When I meet new patients, I can't tell who will be a weight-losing star and who a flop... except with men. I can always tell with them. The men who come in talking and don't stop will be flops. The silent ones, if they aren't angry, will be stars. You can tell if men are angry--they broadcast it with their body language. The only reason men can enjoy playing poker is that they can't read body language. Any woman, if she deigned to play such a trite game, would beat the men, because women can read body language.

    Why do men keep talking? There are two reasons. First, talking is a defence. As long as the men keep talking, they keep me from saying things the men might find unpleasant, and the longer they delay having to process new information. Moreover, men don't like being one-down; they don't defer to authority. They don't read the instruction manual or ask for directions. It was a man who wrote, "All men are created equal." No woman would have written such a silly thing. The men, coming in, want to show off how much THEY know, to show they are as good as I am. "I know what you're going to say, doctor. It's all about calories in calories out, right?" Well no, it isn't. It's also about eating less carbs. If two people (of equal size) expend the same number of calories and eat the same number, but one gets a more of their calories from carbs, the carb-eater will be fatter. Because carbs uniquely raise insulin and insulin promotes fat-storage.
