Excess Weight Gain Gene Doesn't Mean Obesity


Nutritionists and physicians have repeatedly told us that the tendency to gain weight is incorporated in many of us from birth. The DNA carries this information, and it seems like nothing can be done about it. However, the experts have found that we are not slaves to our genes, when it comes to excess weight.

Unfortunately, the women, who are prone to be overweight due to genes, refuse to fight obesity, supposing that they are powerless against their weight. Good physical activity helps to melt even a very large amount of fat, and even in those, who have inherited the notorious “excess weight gain gene“.

The scientists at Cambridge University studied 220 000 people from around the world and came to the reassuring conclusion. Those, who do not deprive themselves of good physical activity, significantly reduce the effect of the excess weight gain gene.

The chances of getting obese, if you are genetically prone to obesity and do not move, rise to 69%, if compared with those, who have these genes and go on with physical activity.
