I Guess This Qualifies As News

CHICAGO �?? Maybe you CAN blame being fat on your genes. But there’s a way to overcome that family history �?? just get three to four hours of moderate activity a day.

I guess this qualifies as news

That’s such bullcrap. Everyone knows that if you’re fat, your parents are fat, and you grew up fat, there’s no way to lose the weight. The best coping methods for this realization are generally best executed with a number 4, large sized with a Coke at McDonald’s.

People might as well not try to lose weight, because their parents’ genes are the ONLY reason that they’re fat.

Duhhhhh.

I go with two double cheese burgers stacked and a small fry. Its cheaper!

If there really were a “fat gene” to blame, you have to wonder where it was hiding in the past. Genetic changes take many, many generations to occur. Why is our generation so fat while in our grandparents time it was a relative rarity???

Must be a “stupid & gullible gene” out there too.

In a natural environment the tendency to gain and hold fat is a huge energy storage advantage. They just weren’t sedentary.
