Society, the media and the internet have said so much about weight loss, that it may be difficult to determine what is true…Most of the information delivered is unproven, while some is just plain false.
That being said, don’t fall for the lies and misconceptions; you may be sabotaging your weight loss goals instead of enhancing them.
Obesity is about self-discipline not biology
Many of us believe if an individual is obese it’s usually because they overeat, under exercise and lack willpower. This is not always true. Obesity can be due to a person’s genetics. According to research, “obesity risk is two to eight times higher for a person with a family history as opposed to a person with no family history of obesity.”
