Defeating Your Obesity Gene

Are you one of the many unlucky people in the world who are more prone to being overweight? You are not alone.

Also, you are not hopeless. There are actually ways you can do to make sure that your children aren’t doomed to be obese as well. Read on to figure out how you can get rid of that pesky gene.

It is incredible how many people actually possess this gene!

“Previous research has shown that about 74% of all people in the U.S. with European ancestry have a genetic variation associated with the FTO gene that can lead to weight gain that raises the risk for becoming obese. –

You actually crave 200 more calories than the average person if you have this gene. According to  Paul Thompson, PhD , you can reverse this craving by walking 2 miles. Crazy right? But that might be difficult for obese people to exercise consistently every day.

It’s hard to get motivated when everything you do ends up causing you some sort of body pain or discomfort.

Most researches are hoping that the discovery of the elimination of this gene will motivate more people to get off their lazy butts and exercise. Basically like a “If you won’t do it for yourself, do it for your children!” type thing.

So what will you do? Will you get rid of the gene for you and for the sake of your children?
