I was watching a science program on TV called “Truth about fat“. It basically showed that fat people have a deficient hormone which tells the brain when they are full. At least that’s how it was for the study sample. It was all very fascinating, but…
Programs such as this are making you forget about your own responsibility. It allows you the luxury of having an excuse for being overweight (or any other ailment you may got yourself into).
Ok, I agree, we’re all different. So we have a different genetic make-up, different bodies, different lifestyles, different attitutes and beliefs. However, we all have a responsibility to our bodies. We all need our bodies to be “well-oiled and maintained machines” to last the whole life through. And this comes down to the individual resposibility. You can’t just say “I have a fat gene” and let it go. You need to work out what works for you and what doesn’t.
If you’ll listen to all this science, although interesting, you will get bogged down in excuses and will stop trying.
P.S. The program also mentioned that just because you have a gene, it does not necessarily have to be activated. Further studies are currently going on in the gene activation field.
