"The truth in Venezuela is there is real hunger. We are hungry," says a man who has invited me into his house in the northwestern city of Maracaibo, but doesn't want his name used for fear of reprisals by the government.
The wiry man paces angrily as he speaks. It wasn't always this way, he says, showing how loose his pants are now.
