Genes & Overweight

Might My Weight Problem Be A Result Of My Fat Genes?

The simple answer is yes. Being overweight can be the result of genes. Recent research indicates that a tendency to gain weight can be inherited.

However, this does not mean that you have to stay overweight – simply that it may take longer for you to lose weight than others.

Whether or not you have inherited (eg.) a slow metabolism, or a tendency to gain weight, you need to find the correct balance of calorie intake and exercise that works for you.

Unless you have a health problem that is contributing to your weight then a sensible combination of diet and exercise will definitely help you to get into shape, irrespective of the fat genes you may have inherited.
