“I’m overweight because obesity runs in my family. We’re a fat family.”
Yes, you are fat because you have fat genes!
Patients say that they are overweight because it runs in their family and they can’t help it. Science has led us to believe that that is absolutely true. You are fat because you are fat. You inherited fat genes. But that doesn’t mean there is nothing you can do about it. There certainly is and the C3 Cardiology Diet is your answer. There really is no other way to combat your genes.
There is a reason some people can eat or do anything and stay thin, while others gain weight even if they think of food.
It will be a struggle to fight against your genetics, but you can do it. That’s why some people remain skinny and lean no matter what they do and others just stay fat.
However, bad eating habits and bad activity habits run in families. Families that grow up together and eat together, end up “inheriting” bad eating habits from mom and dad. That is what explains why families sometimes all look alike.
Genetics not only decides how fat you will be but where you put on your fat. If your mom carries most of her extra weight in her thighs, you will too. If your dad mainly carries around a beer belly, you will too. That’s why you see sisters that look similar and have similar body composition and brothers that all look alike when they are overweight.
Yes, their are hormones and genetic factors that affect appetite and certain parts of metabolism. BUT…. there is no gene or genetic predisposition holding you back and forcing you to be overweight.
There are some situations where you are genetically going to be extremely overweight no matter what you do. That is if you have “short stature syndrome”. Very few people have this rare disease. These people rarely grow over 4 feet tall and they HAVE to be overweight. They can’t help but be obese. They have to be obese. They can still fight it, just like the rest of us.
With nearly 80% of our country being overweight and about 35% being obese, we have to combat this problem head on! And fighting against our genetics is one way to do it.
