THE TRUTH ABOUT HEREDITY AND BODY FAT

Losing weight does seem easier for some people than for others. In fact, researchers say that there is a segment of the population that appears to be "genetically resistant to obesity." That doesn't seem fair, but that's the way life is. Let's be honest; not everyone has the genetics to become a top-ranking pro bodybuilder or to become an Olympic Gold medallist. But you are NOT doomed to live a life of fatness if you don't have "athletic genes." Everyone can improve their body shape and fitness level beyond where it is today. Body fat is the result of many influences. Genetics is only one of them and as little as 25% the causes are genetic / biological in nature. Other than that there are several certainties about the TRUE causes of obesity. (1) Physical environment (2) Social environment (3) Behaviour (4) Biology This means that 75% of your results are dictated by lifestyle and behaviour factors and only 25% by biology."The obesity epidemic that we are facing today has developed only over the past 50 years and cannot be explained by changes in our genome."
