Q. I’ve been overweight all my life and so has my family. Does this mean that I have to stay overweight?
No, you don’t.
No one has to stay overweight. Unless they have a medical condition which prevents them losing weight.
If you follow a sensible diet, you will definitely get down to a normal weight. In 24 years, I have never met one dieter who was incapable of losing weight. But I have met lots of dieters whose family was overweight!
Choose a sensible balanced diet, get active and be patient. This is the secret of successful weight loss.
