Are you obese? This is what you must know about your genetics

Something you need to know about being overweight: If you too are obese, 103FM’s expert dietitian, Dr. Maya Roseman, Shared with you a piece of information from studies you need to know about your body weight and your tendency to be obese. Obesity is not only caused by excess calories and avoidance of exercise, but is also largely linked to genetic predisposition.

First, Rozman explained ways to avoid the environmental factor that causes obesity, the current diet at home: Calorie intake is lower than when everyone grabs a pizza or sandwich while they want, the conversation between family members contributes to lower intake, also the quality of food consumed is higher.In addition it is important to adopt proper eating habits – eating around the table and paying attention to what you eat, Standing or doing other things. “

“When parents do not like to cook or do not have time to prepare healthy food, order pizzas or food from restaurants, which are usually high in fat, large portions, more calories and low nutritional value,” the dietitian added. “When the house is bursting with snacks, cookies and cakes bought. It is very easy for children to go to the closet and put unnecessary and unhealthy calories into the body.” She sharpened a message to parents: “If the parents themselves are eating the wrong diet and not doing an activity, or a father who sticks borax while shopping at the supermarket, can not tell his child ‘you can not’. The children also see what the parents are doing and mimic behaviors.”

“If the children do not like healthy food because they have become accustomed to unhealthy food, and the parents give up and just keep giving them what they like, it is clear that the risk of obesity increases,” the dietitian emphasized.

Roseman finally shared the really interesting statistic: “Recent studies show that despite our ability to influence, 70% of obesity is genetic, and only 30% of the environment. In a study that examined nearly 900 pairs of twins aged 7 to 16, there was an 80% match in the weight of the twins and their BMI. Another study found that if an overweight woman becomes pregnant, it increases her child’s risk of being overweight. It has been found that the rate of metabolism and daily calorie burning is also genetic. There are families where everyone burns a little, and the risk of gaining weight is higher. It was also found that there is a difference in the ability to store fat. The risk of obesity in women whose sisters are obese is 40% higher. “
