When Obesity Is in Your Genes

Author: Oksana Aron, MD Source: Weight Loss NYC Nov 8, 2011
A new study from the Medical Research Council Epidemiology Unit in Cambridge, UK, which was published in PLoS Medicine, has great news for those who may have obesity in their genes: being physically active can actually reduce your predisposition.

According to the study, the risk of becoming obese if you have the "fat mass and obesity associated" (FTO) gene becomes nearly 30 percent less likely to happen for physically active adults compared to those who aren't.

"Physical activity is an effective way of controlling body weight, particularly in individuals with a genetic predisposition towards obesity. Thus, they contrast with the determinist view held by many that genetic influences are unmodifiable," Dr. Ruth Loos, who led the study, told Medical Daily.

So even if obesity runs in your family, your genes can't hold you back from a healthy body. Your ideal weight is now in your own hands, and there are no excuses either. Make an appointment today for your free weight loss consultation with Dr. Aron.
