Many people feel that they're just "going to be fat - it's in my genes." Or, "My parents were that way, I'm destined to be that way."
Well, to try to be gentle but honest: you're WRONG!
Genes do play a role, but they are not the end-all be-all. They may make things a little bit of an uphill battle for you at first, but you can over come that!
Genes may predispose you to be heavier or have a different metabolism, but that does NOT mean you are predestined with no choice but to be FAT!
Rise above it! Rise above your genes!
Even the brain behind the Human Genome Project, Eric Lander, expressed his concerns that people would use genes as an excuse to not even try to be healthy. He states:
"People will think that because genes play a role in something, they determine everything. We see, again and again, people syaing, 'It's all genetic. I can't do anything about it.' That's nonesense. To say that something has a genetic component does not make it unchangeable."
So say NO to Predisposition! Start now to buck tradition, and be a rebel! You CAN overcome your genes! You can start right now claiming a new future and a new you. See it, own it, be it!
