    Ever heard the excuse “I’m overweight because of my genetics”?
    Are several members of your family overweight and you just figured, you were
    stuck that way too? I bet that made you feel hopeless. I bet you even thought
    about giving up before you even started to try. Well, I have great news. Take
    that sigh of relief and relax :-) you don’t have to be a victim to your so
    called “fat genes”. Recent studies reveal that being overweight has
    NOTHING to do with genetics and EVERYTHING to do with your lifestyle. Make no
    mistake: Genetics may set the stage but your choices determine how your script
    actually reads. Make the right choices, and you can overcome any genetic
    predisposition and live right at your ideal weight for as long you want. BUT,
    if you make the wrong choices well,
    you know how that ends.
